    I agree - if there was that type of thing going on surely there would be visible marks on them and there is nothing to suggest that in their social media photos.

    For me too-I think she was afraid to say he grabbed her by the throat and she scratched him.

    I sure hope LE follows up with Miranda to see if she remembers seeing anything on him...I would imagine there would have to be since that was only a day or two later...I can't imagine that Gabby would not have been fighting with all of her might!

    I respectfully disagree.

    We don't know when they instructed a lawyer.

    There is a considerable difference knowing the real story on Sept 1st and knowing the real story by Sept 11th when the attorney details were given.

    Manson's death sentence was commuted to live in prison.

    No evidence that they lawyered up “from the get-go” if you mean as soon as BL came home or sooner. They had lawyered when LE came by to ask questions which was not until Sept 11. GP’s family did not start making calls and sending texts and emails until the 10th.

    It is very possible that the Laundries just didn’t press BL as to what happened when he returned alone, having no clue and not even thinking such a thing that Gabby was left, much less that she was dead and their son possibly killed her.

    when the texts and emails let them know that no one had heard from GP and the family was worried, that’s when things heated up there and the Laundries decided they needed professional advice. They did right thing in calling for it. We do not know what BL told them.

    I have a lot of adult kids and we do not discuss relationships with SO families.

    Perhaps Gabby had older injuries

    If they do, it's in a place in their mind they've buried long ago. They didn't do this and are undoubtedly hating themselves just for bringing him into the world. BL doesn't get to share the blame with them. This is all him.

    There is a photo of Gabby sitting near the sand dunes when she had been skateboarding on the sand (gliding) it’s on their social media. Her back is facing the camera and it looks widely bruised. Sorry I do not have a link to it.

    I think he was just interviewed as an expert and his opinion was that a murder charge will come soon. MOO

    BBM. I think the only reason that would happen is if BL proves to be a disciplinary problem to himself or others in the prison. There have been books written on how to cope with prison life: Book Store | Prison Legal News

    So now that we know it was Gabby’s card that he used, what possible explanation could he have for running back to Florida with it, and without her? Even if, let’s say, he regularly had permission to use it, wouldn’t this be yet more evidence of guilt? What possible plausible reason could he have for both leaving her in the woods with no vehicle and none of her stuff, and also taking her debit card? In nobody’s universe would someone manage to do this, and not also be guilty of the murder.

    Her body was on the other side of the creek from where the van was parked.
    Measured in Google Earth, the locations of the van & her body are approx. 287 yards apart.
    The ground between is rocky creek, water flow in some places, others spots, not.

    I wanted to reply to a post before the thread closed but missed it.

    Strangulation in WY does allow for strangulation deaths to be consider pee-mediated.
    If strangulation is committed during a felony domestic violence charge (or other felonies) it is eligible to considered first degree (malice aforethought).

    That is rather perplexing since the likely murder didn't happen in Palm Beach County.

    I agree, there is also evidence from GP's mother that tension between this couple was escalating during their trip. It is possible, anything is possible, but in this case improbable. It is distressing to me to keep hearing this said over and over again. MMO

    Here is a link to the science-based definition .....

    Manual strangulation involves compression of the neck by using either one or both hands or by exercising pressure with another part of the body such as the forearm or knee.

    As referenced from the Encyclopedia of Forensic Sciences (Second Edition)

    Sure, we're just speculating about BL using it as a potential excuse to wriggle out of first degree murder....

    That’s the question. The coroners report has a large time period when death could have occurred. BL was not there for parts of that time period. That is provable as he was in the road on the way Home , and out hitchhiking.

    He uses the term "they" so he's not referring to his own office. He's just explaining why there would be a delay. JMO
