    makes you wonder if now that we know how she died whether it contradicts the "story" Brian gave his family

    BL may claim accidental but I feel this coroner has evidence GP fought back. He referenced DV. I felt the orange evidence markers depicted a struggle.

    Moo...

    I agree, he has probably ruled the same cause and manner of death for innumerable other women, and no one cares, he doesn't hold a press conference and have to answer a barrage of questions. Those women are buried and forgotten except by their families, who are also hurting right now.

    I'd like to see a big move today.

    I'd like to see the Feds haul in the parents for questioning. Shake this loose. Let's see if they talk or take the 5th, but haul them in all the same. It may draw BL out of hiding. MOO

    I didn't see what was said but why would someone do that? Has to be someone that is pissed that he's covering this case so closely, imo

    Yes because he said DV, it is possible there are other injuries from a fight or struggle, broken bones etc. that would eliminate defense saying it was sex that went too far. Being exposed to the wilderness for 3 to 4 weeks leaves the possibility that the defense could say animals could have made those other injuries, if there are any, although I do think there would be evidence if it was an animal

    Yeah, doesn’t that come under the category of “Consciousness of Guilt”?

    No. Though the official cause of death is now strangulation which means a person killed her, nothing has been said that there is sufficient evidence to accuse BL of it.

    Yes, it sounds far fetched to many of us here, but it is possible that BL came back from a walk about and found GP dead, panicked, afraid he’d be blamed and rushed home without reporting it. It’s possible that happened.

    Maybe that's what he told his parents. She tried to choke me so I grabbed her by the neck to stop her. When I walked away, I didn't realize she was dead. MOOx100.

    Typically there is, but in the case of Shanann Watts she did not have any DNA under her fingernails and through Chris's own admission she did not fight back.
    Maybe, GP and BL often fought with him grabbing her (as GP demonstrated at the police stop) and/or choking her but always let go and apologized profusely and GP always forgave him. Possibly, GP thought this time was going to be like all the other times and he'd let go....only this time he didn't. MOO.

    Anyone remember CaL photos where it looks like BL has finger bruises on his right arm. That would match up with what would happen during strangulation if the victim tried to get him off MOO

    I don't think that's what he said, but honestly, in his line of work where that reality would be in his face constantly, I don't think we can blame him.
    As for your other question, yes. There are a lot of GP cases out there that don't get proportional coverage and addressing it isn't a shot at her or anyone interested in her case. It's just facts. We're human and we have biases. If we can acknowledge that within ourselves, then we can use high profile cases like Gabby's to raise awareness and make a conscious effort to notice other cases that we might've otherwise scrolled right over. That's what made JP's plea for it so beautiful. I can't even imagine the strength that family possesses.

    I believe strangulation qualifies as premeditated because of the amount of time it takes, someone said earlier premeditation doesn’t have to start a long time in advance, just that you knew what you were doing was going to kill someone and you kept doing it.

    A few here have mentioned BL might claim erotic asphyxiation. I’m not certain, but with Jim Schmidt IDing Gabby’s sweatshirt, I thought that was found on her. So I inferred she’d be clothed at the time of her death.
    I’m no expert in this type of thing, obviously, but if she were clothed I think that would further disprove this was a sexual act that went wrong. JMO

    I already know what the defense Will say, but it isn’t going to work. He may be sentenced to a medical facility though, and likely qualifies.

    I think he was downplaying or trying to deemphasize the significance of the strangulation (and it's connection to BL). Totally unsuccessfully!

    Back to square 1.
    And no clues to help further our journey, sadly.
