    I agree it was not a slip up. Death by strangulation automatically defines this as domestic violence. It's not pointing a finger at BL specifically or saying anything about Gabbie's possible past experiences. Whoever strangled Gabbie, whether it be the most obvious, Brian, or some mysterious stranger that happened upon Gabbie out there, it's still Domestic Violence. IMO. Also, I'm in and out on these threads and miss a lot. Can anyone tell me if we have any proof or confirmation that BL was ever even at the reserve, I mean other than what his parents finally decided to disclose to LE?

    What is a crime of passion?

    A "crime of passion" or a "heat of passion crime" describes an intensely emotional state of mind induced by a type of provocation that would cause a reasonable person to act on impulse or without reflection.

    ME TOO!!! I can not get a good layout! There's the 2 crosses, one is where she was actually found. The photos, some look in different areas from the stream. I get so confused by all of it because none of it tells a solid story to me. What I think now, is they had a long physical fight, or him hitting her and her trying to get away. Then finally caught her...and....well we all know the rest. JMO

    Yes possibly.
    Are you thinking she was still alive when possibly dragged out or had already been murdered?
    The cadaver dogs didn't alert in the van so I wonder how long does it take for a dead body to emit smell that can be picked up by the scent dogs?

    You've never heard of that? It's essentially strangulation.

    I’m wondering if he hit her hard in the face and made her bleed as he did it and that’s why all the evidence markers were like they were.. then he choked her. I hope she clawed the ever loving you know what out of his face.

    me too.
    Looks like he was targeted.
    It's a vicious world, the world of journalism.
    Security should have been a lot tighter for this press 'conference' that was really a one-lined press release.
    But it's the kind of thing that could follow his career.
    He's very good, he works hard and doesn't take shortcuts.
    Shameful thing to do.
    I hope there's an investigation.
    For his sake.

    All of a sudden I am thinking BL told his parents what happened and that's why he's still on the lam.

    Sad all around.

    Horrifying. I’m wondering now if he had tried it in the past.

    No, I don’t make it a habit to go around doing that to people.. lol. When I first heard it I thought maybe he shook her violently by the neck, but from what I have seen it’s just another way of saying strangulation.

    Strangulation always makes me so sad because is so personal. Eye contact. Opportunities to stop, deliberate continuance. It takes time, and there is a struggle. It is face to face.

    To imagine she died with him screaming and spitting in her face with his hands around her neck, is so painful. The fear of not being able to breathe, and of the person she loved doing this to her, alone in the wilderness, with no way out. She saw the devil in his eyes in that moment. I’m so sorry that’s the last thing she saw.

    Strangulation can be determined in the first degree or with premeditation because of continuing past the point of passing out, until the victim is deceased. There is time to stop, and a knowledge of what you are doing, past the point of “passion” but consistent with violent rage. Sometimes victims urinate during the struggle. It’s a very horrible way to die and way too personal for it to not have been BL. IMO. Too sad.

    This is not the exact place Gabby was found. This is the larger cross. The smaller cross and flowers from her step father are in shown in the Dr. Phil episode.

    I think it is more likely to be 4(b) - one hand over the mouth to prevent the victim talking/crying so the perpetrator doesn;t have to hear what the victim has to say, and the other hand around to throat to reinforce my first point. It also forces the victim to think about survival rather than the point they were trying to make to the perpetrator. Double whammy.

    His story is going to be that someone else killed her and that he happened upon the scene and fled out of fear he'd be accused. In fact, that's pretty much the first statement his lawyer put out about why they weren't talking to police.

    There are what appear to be blood spots in the scene photos. If that's BL's blood, he doesn't stand a chance of succeeding with that defense. If it's Gabby's blood, who knows? If it's someone else's blood, the whole story changes.

    Yes, I know someone like that too. Men that are abusive towards others, especially women, and then calm down and collect themselves when police come over, are IMO not only evil men but also weak men and cowards.
