    Agreed. I was commenting on all the websleuthers telling their stories. I agree however with the fact that if you have been on the receiving end of abuse you can know the signs. As someone who was arrested for DV (my ex is a master manipulator and emotional abuser and narcissist) I understand how he could have made her look like the "crazy" one.
    IMHO

    Walking barefoot is a trendy thing called "grounding" or "earthing".

    Why Going Barefoot Can Be Good For Your Health: Meet "Earthing"

    "The Earth's surface is negatively charged with free electrons—meaning that the Earth has an abundance of free (negatively charged) electrons that travel and rapidly reduce positive charge," Ober tells mbg. "Example: When standing barefoot on the earth, the body absorbs these free electrons and equalizes to the earth's negative charge."

    I saw that part in the video. Gabby demonstrated twice to the police how BL grabbed her by the jaw area on her face, and you can't hear what she's saying (at least I couldn't) but it looked like a choking maneuver, only it was on her jaw instead of her throat. Two inches lower and it would have been a choking maneuver. It looked terrifying. It was not a simple pushing away motion. He grabbed her on the jaw, according to her own demonstration. Also notice in photos how big his hands are.

    FWIW I don't think they ever made it to Yellowstone. Something probably occurred on the way there, since someone saw them in a store in Idaho, that so far seems to be the last place they were seen.
    But if they DID make it to Yellowstone, I have to say, gruesome as it sounds, there are a lot of places to dispose of a body there and have it totally disappear though I don't know how BL could push her into a hot spring without people seeing. This happened with a guy in 2016 who slipped and fell into one of them. 24 hours later he was totally gone.

    Having just been through a jury seating, that's how lawyers refer to people, especially if they are people about whom they are personally unfamiliar.

    We really don't know this yet. Her family made it sound like the van was her own acquisition.

    So up thread I read, can't remember his name but he was talking with CNN. He said there is no crime so does that mean there is no crime because there is no body? And if there is no body found does that mean there will be no crime to arrest and charge BL with?

    Quality is terrible since I had to screenshot and crop the full original version of the photo taken from the video b/c it’s too large of a file to upload.

    Depends on where you are. There's coverage in about 50% of the park, mostly near the developed areas. IF they made it there, who knows where they stopped.
    Do Cell Phones Work in Yellowstone? Is There WiFi?

    It raises the question: why didn't he fly back this second time? Why did he drive back instead of leaving the van out west?

    It's the extremely implausible fact that he has the van back home, with no story about why, that makes it clear he abandoned her.

    BBM - This in itself is telling. So she isn't able to talk to him then. Is that refusal based on BL, his parents or the attorney? You would think the person interviewing her would have asked her WHY she can't?
    I really do wonder why she bothered with all of this instead of just saying "I haven't spoken to my brother since he came back so I don't have anything helpful, I wish I did" or even since a specific timeframe. Instead it's a long drawn out interview of jack squat. ::shrug::

    I thought he flew to Florida while she stayed at the hotel in SLC.

    He can plead the fifth, but in a civil case the jury can make negative presumptions about that choice. In a criminal case it can’t be held against him.

    I still agree with those who believe that something very odd/terrible had to have happened for the guy to rush home and lawyer up. As I mentioned before, usually if a guy murders his woman, he comes up with the most valid alibi possible in hopes he can pass it off as an accident or something. In this case, however, the guy lawyers up and completely disappears. He may indeed have done something and then admitted it to his parents in horror, later realizing that the hasty confession meant he had no alibi. Or he may have fought with her and then something happened afterwards which would have falsely implicated him, and then he freaked and ran.

    I was thinking about the same on the time...maybe some of the text on the 27th were really from GP so late 27th or 28th or even part of the 29th then drive back ... its 36 hrs straight drive time...he had to stop for gas 4-6 times eat sleep some.. so maybe about 2 days or little longer to get back to FL... Im still on the fence whether he came home by the 31st. His playlist upload on the 31st make me wonder if he could have been home. I hope people come forward seeing the van during this few days of 27th 28th 29th. JMO the 30th text was a ploy.

    I'm getting a suspicion that "cryptic" is part of his identity (and perhaps smugly so). It fits with his current behavior - although his current behavior is too extreme to put down to this.

    Attacked the newly weds? Gabby saw blood??? He had to kill her to silence her. OMG. That’d be something else. Wonder what his true ideas about alternate lifestyles include. Eeyou. Were they in the area when the murders took place? Time line, anyone?

    Where is the information of BL'S return to Florida documented if it is?
    How do we know he returned Sept 1st.? How do we know he even returned? Has anyone seen him or talked to him? Also, how do we know he returned alone? I was trying to find this info but couldn't. Would appreciate some help.
