    I don't think it was 6 hours at MP's maybe 6 hours at Moonflower...but we don't know if she was even inside Moonflower. Maybe just parked outside, or on a bench, as someone suggested. jmo

    I had thought it was established it was about 1/3rd of the lower left jaw.... searching for link now...
    ====================================

    So would I -- if it can be found in this mass of threads... :)
    From what I've recently read due to this case, one-third of a jaw should be sufficient to prove a match.

    It doesn't seem that GP & BL were arguing at the table, at least nothing that would draw attention. The witness at the table next to them (1-2 ft away) stated on her video that she and her companion took no notice of them at all until someone came and <witness interpretation> asked them to leave. It was then that BL starting making a scene at the hostess stand, which DID draw the witness's attention. Up until then, nothing was happening according to the witness. jmo

    Human bones should never be picked up by a child.. Just the thought of how that can happen in a public place should be enough reason. IMHO

    To further your point, in the second officer’s body cam footage, where you can hear what she was saying to him a lot more clearly than in the first, she mentioned that part of the reason she didn’t want to leave the van was that her laptop was in it and had unsaved work. From that I think it is at least possible that she was sitting in the van and was able to pick up a nearby signal. Especially given that she also said she was straitening up the van and apologizing to him for being “mean” when the argument started. MOO.

    There may not be any more remains if alligators fed on his body.

    I don't think they should. Brian chose that as his last resting place. I would try to get a permit to scatter his ashes in the same area.

    No permit needed. Just hike in and scatter...there won't be much, anyway, maybe a cupful. jmo

    I agree.

    And even if the issue was over wifi, I can't see it being a crisis for GP because, per the link @Mishmish posted a page or so ago, there are dozens of other places in Jackson offering free wifi. Including the library, which probably is happy to have people hang out for longer periods.

    At the same time, if BL was at hair-trigger level with his temper, he could have been set off by almost anything.

    MOO

    Could simply be a fall, an alligator bite, a bullet to the head, or the skull itself falling and hitting a rock. So much we'll never know.

    In the real world, anyone can be pushed to lash out. But from what I have read about BL he had a very slow fuse.
    For example.
    Friends of Brian Laundrie and Gabby Petito speak publicly about their relationship: 'They seem to be pretty in love'

    Usually people that leave their loved ones dead in the wilderness show a history of violence to the point where everyone knows he did it.

    This popped into my head earlier. Was this discussed here? Guessing it was and I missed it. Why did Gabby say she was from California when they were pulled over? I believe she was born on Long Island in Suffolk County, NY, lived in NC along the coast for awhile and then moved to FL with BL. Was she actually born in CA so that's an accurate statement?

    ITO. You guys both live in Florida, right? That’s where you guys come from?

    My license says Florida right now, but I’m from California.

    An observation might be that her opinion might be influenced by what happened days later.

    I guess if it was crushed by an ATV, all the shards would have been near each other, so I have to think it was from a gunshot and portions of the head were carried off by animals. Gross. But the whole story is gross. jmo

    I know a guy who lives the "van life." He is usually parked outside a restaurant that I frequent. Since he's essentially homeless, he sits at the restaurant bar all day using their wi-fi. He'll order a Coke, but mostly drink out of his own "water" bottle. The owners don't mind him, but there is a manager that can't stand the idea of working two jobs to support his family, while this guy hangs out all day. When the manager is working, he lets van guy finish his Coke and then tells him to get lost. The same thing could have happened at MP. A staff member could have been having a bad day and just wasn't in the mood for a couple of nomads using the place as their own personal living room. It's probably more and more common, as an increasing number of people are living in vans.

    Everyone's hindsight is 20/20, and I'm sure that the young woman based at least some of her remarks on what she knew eventually happened. That said, speaking in general terms, I think restaurant patrons who witness something like this might feel embarrassed for the couple and frightened for themselves and/or employees of the dining establishment.

    While not in a restaurant, DH and I had an encounter at a service desk in Macy's a few years ago. Our transaction was very quick - an exchange for a different size. While we were at the service desk, a couple were ranting as they looked for someone to assist them. They shouted at us and said something like, "She'll help you, but she wouldn't help us!" We had no idea what they were talking about, but there had apparently been an incident earlier involving these people and the sales person. On our way out of the store, I saw a sales representative in an adjacent department and told her that the sales associate in the other department might need some help or that security should be called. It was scary!
