    IMO - and I am purely speaking on this because its how I feel - I am frustrated and appalled that his parents wouldn't at the very least make a personal public statement/plea (ie - not via SB). I think what people are hoping is that the "harassment" will get to them and make them crack. I also think the lack of emotion we are seeing from them is making it worse. Its like when I was younger and used to annoy my sisters...the more they ignored me, the more annoying I got! :D

    Sure... but then you grow up and stop acting that way.

    or you're supposed to anyway. These people obviously didn't.

    Yeah. & IMO I was thinking that the only way they could have proof for an indictment that it was in fact unauthorized use was if they knew for sure Gabby was dead during the time frame the card was used. I’m no lawyer, but I would think they’d have to have some sort of proof to present to a grand jury that it was unauthorized. I can’t think of any other proof. JMO.

    First of all, he'd have to get to the AT. That's 500 miles or so by car.

    No one would choose to have 2 weeks of supplies on the AT. That would be more common on a backpack trip in a roadless area. AT has supply points pretty much every day if you need them, except maybe Maine.

    Calculate 2lbs of food per person per day. For 14 days, that's 28 pounds (no thank you). There's not a good way to take vegetables. Plus, you've got to carry a fuel supply. And this still won't be enough food!

    Hikers who've been on the trail for a while go CRAZY for food. Every moment, every day. BL would never manage this: he's a guy who went to restaurants on budget camping trips.

    Absolutely... but your friends don't all cheer that person on and encourage their behavior, as some here do with the protesters.

    Correct, but they never lived at Fenwick so why are people still talking about that property? the tenant came out to the protestor woman and explained already

    I agree about the Benton sighting and probable card use. No one has debunked that. So, yeah, I think FBI has video surveillance of a transaction. How far is Benton from Jackson WY? Could he have made it there on one tank of gas? How far could he travel from Benton toward home before he had to buy gas again? jmo

    the news release that accompanied the warrant and indictment stated that the unauthorized activity took place "following the death of gabrielle petito"...

    this link shows it...

    Read the documents: Brian Laundrie arrest warrant

    I agree. The more they stay silent - which is their right, however I’m talking about SO silent that they’re not even asking the public to help them find their son - the more it frustrates people & makes them look bad. I wouldn’t care if the world hated my guts & ppl threw tomatoes at my face when I got up to a podium. If my kid was missing, I’d be begging for help finding them. Like omg I can’t even think about that. I’d be a total wreck telling everyone who would listen. JMO. Their silence - in relation to Gabby’s parents & even on something that has nothing to do with Gabby specifically like BL missing is extremely frustrating.

    "It's my understanding" is a long walk from evidence of any kind. If there has been official statements saying anything related to a date certain, please share. But thus far, so far as I've seen, there is none.

    Except if the kid was a fugitive, like BL is, maybe they don't want to beg for him to be found because that means going to prison.

    Not quite. The use charge says nothing about her being dead. The press release announces an arrest warrant **pursuant to** that charge related to his activities following her death. The Grand Jury (rightly) views the card usage sufficient to allow a warrant.

    I want to put the photo I found up. Is that permitted? It's a photo from Oct 6 in Colorado where a camera caught a guy that stole some stuff from a porch. I think it looks closer to BL than that last one, but then again, it's still not spot-on.

    If I can't do it, that's cool too.

    BBM. You may be right. Vinne Politan had a segment about this case on Court TV last night and he made the point that BL likely phoned his parents immediately. I think he's right because my sons have phoned us immediately after encounters with LE and told us they were being wrongfully accused. We promptly got them attorneys....and the charges were eventually dropped.

    Where this case goes seriously wrong is BL's disappearance. His parents aren't acting bereaved or upset so I seriously doubt he killed himself. jmo

    Since he did not murder her in front of witnesses and she was left in a wilderness with no emergency care, all they can do is guess that death occured from the time she was last seen. I am sure they have phone and SM records , as well as BL on camera driving back to Florida in her van without her. Jmo

    If he's never found, they are off the hook. It's in their best interest if he is never found, so why should they beg for him to turn himself in? I keep hearing that they are cooperating w LE in their effort to find B. But really, all they have said is that he supposedly went to the C. Reserve, then when the mustang was ticketed at the Mya. Env. Park, obviously not at Carlton Reserve, they "helped" by changing the date of his disappearance from 14th to 13th, and weeks later, decided to "help" search at Mya......pointing out BL's "favorite" trails.......not at the C. Reserve. jmo

    IMO I think it was the grandfather. IMO she didn’t call back because she was already dead.
