    I really hope not. I tend not to think so, they surely would not allow such a monster to be around their grandchildren!!?

    I really think BL must have spun his parents a sob story about Gabby dumping him, poor Brian, Gabby is horrible, Brian doesn't want to to talk about it.... 'cry, sad face, heartbroken bri'

    There's no evidence otherwise as yet and it's too horrid to believe they knew the real story IMO Especially then letting him tag along to a family afternoon with Cassie and kids.

    Remember the picture of him in the neighborhood walking? He had what looked like a bandage on his arm? JMO
    Gabby's fiance was 'in a hurry' when he was 'picked up as a hitchhiker'

    Also, I don't remember this picture being this blurry.

    Right, but the stamp in the top corner is a physical stamp that is placed by the clerk when the physical document is handed to them in person. Electronic stamps typically run either in the header or in one of the corners. I think they filed it by hand to keep it out of the media's hands until the coroner could hold the press conference. Hand filing it meant it wasn't immediately available online for review.

    Look at Charles Manson. He was on death row and died in prison before he was executed.

    Yes, I don’t get this either. I thought murder charges would be filed in the jurisdiction where the crime occurred. Strange.

    But then he would've stopped. With the time that it takes for strangulation, he had to have wanted her dead.

    BBM. I disagree, he was referring to other DV deaths, not incidents. I think he was indirectly saying she was killed by her domestic partner. MOO

    Sad but not surprised to see Gabby was strangled. IMO you can't read anything legally into the report except that strangulation is often a personal crime, more likely to be committed by someone known to the victim. It's not like you get caught in a drive-by strangulation or a mass strangulation. But we will have to wait to see what the charges are to see what the feds think is appropriate based on the evidence.

    This is why sometimes I question why not go for the death penalty rather than life in prison w/o parole in general population.

    Death row inmates are in their cell for 23 hours a day. Those many years waiting to exhaust all their appeals must feel like several lifetimes locked up in confinement.

    The photo of him with his nephews, I zoomed in trying to see any injuries but it’s too blurry.

    I so hope she clawed his face he had to hide and heal.

    Most sources say the body must be dead for 24-72 hours before it leaves a detectable trace but there are studies that say some dogs can alert on samples that were left only 2-3 hours after death. Dogs are not machines so I guess training, ability and conditions play a big part. The only thing that is clear is that a body could be transported or stored in a van for some period of hours after death without leaving a trace detectable by cadaver dogs.
    This leaves open the possibility that Gabby was murdered in the van or even at some location outside the park (i.e., in Wyoming jurisdiction and not federal) and transported in the van to the spot near where she was found. (I keep thinking of the one witness who saw BL park in the spot when he was alone in the cab of the van.)

    Another term for manual strangulation.

    He couldn't stop. She had to die because otherwise, GP could have charged him. Not sure if it would have been classed as attempted murder but Imo, basically that's what it would have been even if BL had stopped himself.

    I think he's just talking about what the other prosecutors are going to be doing, not saying he's the one filing charges.
