Okay, DL Queens - Let's Solve This One

22-year old perky blonde Gabrielle Petito, an aspiring YouTube vlogger (groan) goes on a cross country trek with her boyfriend, chronicling their adventures all the way. Their van and the boyfriend show up in Florida, but she's not in it. This one sounds pretty obvious to me.

They were probably performing some stupid death-defying stunt that they wanted to capture on video, like hanging off a cliff. They behaved like YouTube-Tik Tok idiots, he was too stupid to know what to do after she plunged to her death, so he just got in the van and drove away.

She probably tried to break up with him and he went apeshit at the thought of her moving on without him, R39. Guys like that don't really love the girl or else they wouldn't ever hurt her. She was a posession to him. When the girl leaves them or move on, the loser guy can't handle that something they feel that they "own" or "belongs" to them isn't theirs any longer.

Here's my theory. For now…

1) They broke up mid-journey, either amicably or with lots of drama. This could be why there is talk of an "incident".

2) She was going to stay behind, allowing him to finish the journey with the van.

3) Witness reports corroborate that she was in fact spotted alive and well after Laundrie's departure.

4) She got killed, he arrived alone in Florida and didn't get charged for anything because of point 3

The boyfriend released a statement:

“I understand that a search has been organized for Miss Petito in or near Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming,” Brian Laundrie said in a statement, according to ABC News.

“On behalf of the Laundrie family it is our hope that the search for Miss Petito is successful and that Miss Petito is re-united with her family,” said the statement, issued through an attorney.

“On the advice of counsel the Laundrie family is remaining in the background at this juncture and will have no further comment,” it said.

If the van is hers and they broke up I don’t think she just let him take it since it was her primary form of transportation and she wasn’t close to home.

She did not have contact with her family after 8/25 and if she needed to get home she would have asked them for help.

He obviously did something to her would explain her disappearance and his layering up right away.

Reading a bit about on Websleuths. I love a good mystery…

Her family tried to get help from him and his family a couple of times, but the boyfriend and his parents won't budge. I'm already starting to question my working theory…

The girl is dead, that much is clear — She was an avid user of social media, so the whole "she just wants to be off the grid for a while" thing doesn't work at all. That, combined with the boyfriend's absolute refusal to help in any way, tells me he either killed, she died by accident, or she died at the hand's of someone else.

If she was left behind alive after they parted ways, he would have said so. While lawyering up is always the smart thing to do, refusing to even talk to the police is a dead giveaway that you are guilty of something.

Never change, reddit fraus and always believe all women, even if said woman is actually hitting people, only a woman can be the one and only true DV victim! They obviously got into a physical fight again, he hit back and killed her, accidentally or premeditated. Then he ghosted everybody because he has zero defense. This isnt a case of a cool girl and the loser she is dating that reddit thinks it is. They are both immature, naive, aimless, and have no clear future. They dreamed of becoming youtube superstars so they left their dead end jobs bagging groceries and then they ran out of money in the middle of nowhere, had barely any youtube views and started blaming each other.

Thanks for that R125. My instinct tells me it's theory 3, 4 or 5. I'm leaning towards, they had a fight and he just left her ass. She either perished, or another stranger hurt her.

They both had mental health issues. Anything is possible. He could also be as guilty as fuck. That's how it looks on the surface. But, I don't like to make prejudgments until there is irrefutable proof.

I haven't forgotten how Reddit Web Sleuths fingered the wrong guy in the Boston Marathon bombing.

R120's absolute certainty that it was all her fault is... unsettling.

But I think he's done something horribly wrong, but of course I have no idea if he just ditched her in a place where she came to harm, or he actively killed her or what. Because a decent person's first concern would be finding her or helping others find her, and an innocent person would be more afraid of the Court of Public Opinion than the police... and would be trying to clear his name and not let anonymous accusations ruin his reputation forever. But he's just stonewalling everyone, not even trying to help locate a missing person. If she were alive and in trouble, that would amount to criminal negligence, but there he is, doing everything in his power to keep her from being found...

The police had threatened to arrest Gabby for domestic assault because she slapped him. All that poster is suggesting is that MAYBE she did that again and this time he murdered her in return.

[quote] "Responding officer Daniel Scott Robbins later located the couple's 2012 Ford Transit on the way to Arches National Park and pulled them over. He then found Gabby crying uncontrollably in the passenger seat. She disclosed to the officer that her and Brian's altercation was fueled by mental health issues.

[quote] "Because of her [redacted] and [redacted], combined with little arguments she and Brian had been having that day, she was struggling with her mental health, which led to the incident that was reported to law enforcement," the report mentions, adding that Gabby was continually "crying, breathing heavily, or compose a sentence without needing to wipe away tears, wipe her nose, or rub her knees with her hands."

[quote] When the officer spoke with Laundrie, he told him that both Gabby and he struggled with the same issues and their differences had been building up in the past few days. "'That time spent created emotional strain between them and increased the number of arguments," the report said, indicating the 4-5 month duration of their cross-country trip.

[quote] "Brian said Gabrielle, thinking he was going to leave her in Moab without a ride, went to slap him," it mentions. "Both expressed a 'desire to remain together and ultimately agreed to be separated."

Pure speculation on my part, obviously but what if it went something like this:

The police officer agreed not to arrest Gabby for DV if the pair separated for the night to cool down.

Gabby stays in the van, Brian goes off to a hotel.

Earlier on he’d seen the younger lesbian at the Moonflower & taken a fancy (she is very pretty) so followed her to the campsite hoping for a hook up since he has a Gabby free night.

There he finds the wife who is (obviously) not impressed to see him and he ends up killing them both.

Over the next few weeks Gabby becomes very suspicious, maybe even finds something Brian has taken from the murdered couple & threatens to go to the police, so he kills her too.

It does seem a bit police procedural storyline but not impossible.

She also hit him when the police pulled them over, just as their lights came on. She says so in the body cam footage. And he has scratches on his face and arm, also observed and discussed on the body cam footage.

It was clearly a volatile and sometimes physically abusive relationship for both of them. Acknowledging that in no way lets him off the hook for any harm that has come to her. On the contrary, it's necessary to get all the facts in order to pursue justice.

Obviously I have no idea what hapoened, but the report I listened to said that she had slapped him & he pushed her away. On this basis, the police made it clear they would arrest Gabby (although Brian didn’t want that) if the pair didn’t separate foe the night. They even sourced a hotel room for Brian. In their report they stated that they’d ascertained that he was not frightened of Gabby, showed no sign of “battered boyfriend syndrome” (their words) and didn’t need medical help.

Seems a bit OTT for just an attempted slap.

Two young people should not be cooped up like that for such a long time. It leads to issues. But if he was upset they could have reached the nearest big city and took a flight back instead of killing. Why does such a good looking young man or men want to throw away their lives? especially being white is a good genetic lottery to being with anyway.

"Very few succeed [at social media monetization] and like MLM it's a whole lot harder than it initially appears."

And like MLM schemes, people spend more than they earn chasing social media fame. I have a relative who has reportedly gone deep into debt, trying to get famous on social media. They've had just enough success to encourage persistence.

As for these kids, I don't blame them for quitting their dead-end jobs and giving it a try, when they were planning they must have thought "what did they have to lose"? Dead-end jobs? Dead-end jobs don't get you anything but minimum wage and a dead end, self-supporting travel that went well might lead to a new direction in life, and even if it doesn't at least they'd see a bit of the world before giving up, and Burger King is still hiring.

R231, 1 minute of googling told me that "unintentional injuries" is the 6th leading cause of death for adult women, and that of those who are murdered, 50% are murdered by current or former domestic partners. The last statistic is probably low, because so many murders go unsolved.

Of course "unintentional injuries" includes auto accidents, selfie accidents, and old ladies falling and breaking a hip. and not just murders.

He obviously killed her. What he should do is claim self-defense. Because the articles about the incident with police last month say that she was the only one accused of using physical violence in the fight they had, when she hit him. Maybe having that on the record could save his ass, although if it's true he should have come out with it immediately. In reality I seriously doubt this woman was ever a real threat to his life, I'm just saying.

Surely murder involves “intentional injuries”, R233, by defintion.

Or have I misunderstood?

by Anonymousreply 235September 16, 2021 5:48 PM

Look. I am not misogynist, but it seems to me, when the cops wee called, she was unhinged and had a tantrum, going after him and he was trying to defend himself. (There are plenty of nutcases on you tube, women who go crazy in stores, etc.) I suspect this was a pattern of behavior from someone unstable who had issues. He probably knew from past experience that barricading himself in the car until she calmed down was the best thing to do at that time. I truly believe that if he had any role in her death, (because I do believe she is dead) it was accidental, not intentional. When some one goes out of control as she apparently did, it is not beyond possible she accidentally killed herself. Maybe they split up, he drove off, then went back to look for her and either he couldn't find her, or he did find her dead and he went back to his parents. This may not be as simple as it appears. Depending on what they find, the most he'd get is involuntary manslaughter. Depending on what they find. Without a body this is going to be a mess.

by Anonymousreply 239September 16, 2021 6:32 PM

I was reviewing the information and the part about not wanting to be left behind stood out to me. Maybe the boyfriend threatened to leave her behind and take the van and she developed an anxiety over this and that’s why she jumped through the window of the van, and why she stayed to sleep in the van while the boyfriend took the hotel room, which normally would be the other way around for safety.

by Anonymousreply 240September 16, 2021 6:45 PM

If you watch the entire police bodycam footage, the cop specifically asks the boyfriend about the scratches on his face and on his arm. The boyfriend acknowledges the scratch on his face was from her, but that the scratch on his arm was from something else. The cop checked him for additional marks on his body. The cop advised the boyfriend that he was the victim of abuse in this situation, not her. So yes, she abused him in this situation. And yes, he probably was locking her out of the van to protect himself and to give her a chance to cool off.

That doesn't excuse him at all, and I suspect the abuse was mutual at times and that he ended up killing her, probably in a blind rage. But all this talk of her as an innocent young waif is a bit misleading. No, she didn't deserve to die because she was emotionally volatile.

Sadly, she seemed quite tiny, so it probably took only one good blow from the boyfriend to kill her.

The police encounter near the Moonflower sounds like the witnesses were worried about HER even if she was physical with him. They were worried about the way he pushed her. That's probably what happened--These two were a folie-a-deux. They got into another physical tussle and in the course of it he pushed, shook, or hit her too hard. And then did THE dumbest thing.

There are conflicting reports out there about the ownership of the van. Many reports say "her van her van her van her van." But there was an article somewhere late yesterday that said the van belonged to the Laundries. (RIDICULOUS name). Let's nail down this burning issue of van rights . . .

Another ambiguity--Do we know she actually got as far as near the Grand Tetons? Or could she have been killed/died when they were still in the Moab area?

Ok, Angels. What we need to do to narrow down on this is:

1) determine WHO actually owned the van

2) determine who might own a gun between the 2 couples

3) the bf had scratches all up and down his body, yet she had nothing visible on hers (did the cops even check, bc she was a woman and there was no female cop present, she could have some in the zone of her tank top/short shorts line); do we really know that HE was the abused in a DV charge or whether she was/or as well? (AFTER ALL, THIS IS BROADCASTING FROM FL, Y'ALL)

4) who would leave a small, short cute girl like her to just rough it and issue a "fuck you" to her without at least a call to her family saying she was unhinged.

"[R255] Pretty sure a "free spirit" whose biggest ambition was to create a YouTube channel and lock herself up in a van with some dude had some issues prior to the trip beginning."

FYI wanting to be a social media star is totally normal among today's young people, and young adults have always wanted to travel or goof off instead of getting a job or settling down/getting tied down. Sure, some are on career tracks at that age, but an awful lot of people in their early twenties are desperately trying to find a way out of being a wage slave for the next fifty years, and believe me I would have done something similar when I was young if I had indulgent parents who'd taken me back in when I straggled home broke and filthy.

So we don't know anything about her pre-trip mental state, and I'm not willing to say that she was crazy just because she acted crazy after being cooped up with a murder suspect for weeks. For all we know she was always batshit, but one episode of hysteria under unusual circumstances isn't proof that she was crazy.

"Did he at least say that much—that he left her somewhere? I’ve been asking this question for days now."

It seems he's said absolutely nothing about a person who's officially missing and not dead, and I'm taking that as proof that he knows she's dead. If there was any hope of finding her alive, he'd have told the police where to look, if only in the hopes of saving his own miserable skin from arrest and/or ongoing suspicion. But he hasn't, he's said nothing and apparently they can't force him to talk without evidence that a crime took place.

I wonder what his parents think of him being a person of interest in all these crimes. Well, no, I don't wonder, I'm sure they're so deep in denial they've found Lake Victoria.

I learned this from a domestic violence case, the girlfriend had bruises all over her face but the police cannot question her boyfriend, even though her friends all worried and contacted the police, she refused to talk and the police had to leave, they can make some inquiries but the boyfriend had no obligation to answer anything because there was no crime committed.

I watched the full version of the police video of them being pulled over. I was struck on how wonderful the police handled the situation...very professional and helpful. I think they went out of their way to help them...finding a motel for Laundrie to stay, keeping them apart for the night...even driving him there. What service! They handled Gabby with kid gloves, when she was so emotional. The charges were more serious for her, but they cut her a break as best they could. If it were another couple, a bit darker, would it be the same? Ok...I went there, but couldn't help thinking that. Anyway, kudos to the police. I wonder now...what they think with the disappearance (and probably death) of Gabby, just a couple of weeks later. I know they see and handle far worse on their job, but I'm sure this haunts them a bit.

2) Brian called her bluff and took off in the van.

3) After a couple of hours regret and worry set in. He tries to call Gabi, but she went off the grid (something she did frequently, according to reports)

4) After possibly an entire day spent on trying to reach/find her, he gives up and drives home

5) Gabi met her demise either by accident (e.g. falling down a ravine) or by the hands of a stranger

That boy messed up when he failed to call her parents, or the cops.

" It was a flaw for him to not call anyone. I'm betting if he was on meds and stopped taking them, maybe his judgement was impaired. He ran home to his "safe space" to hide. Buying his head in the sand. If he has a diagnosed mental illness, it may help his defense. Look. He isn't that bight. He's no experienced serial killer. The cops will find the body if she is dead.

Two domestic violence advocates weighed in on the video and pointed out something I never thought could be a red flag which was her admitting to the police that she was at fault for being OCD or anxious because Brian is a good guy.

The advocates stated that is the classic behavior of someone who is abused and tries to downplay and rationalize why the deserved the abuse and try to cover for the abuser. They also pointed out that Brian’s lack of acknowledgement to any wrong doing is a red flag, finally the fact that he refused to press charges despite having visible marks on him is a clue into his role as an abuser who does not want to be found out.

[quote] And it's been answered about 50 times already. NO. He is not speaking to the cops or providing ANY information. That's in nearly every article and restated amongst these threads many times.

According to R301 and R302 it sounds like he maybe said he abandoned her? Is that true? Because I’ve read all the replies in this thread (except for those written by any DLers I’ve blocked) and this is the first that I’ve heard anything about what Laundrie might have said about her absence: that he abandoned her, or that she wandered off and he drove away? Something to that effect?

I mean he had to have said at least a single word or two to *someone* upon his return. Or at least SHRUGGED. I don’t understand why reporting and discussion on this highly pertinent point in the story is non-existent.

R316 No, I think this is our speculation. As far as I know, he has not spoken to the police or anyone else (other than his parents and lawyer) so no one has any clue at all what, if any, explanation he’s given.

He must have said something to his parents at least, I agree with you. But we don’t know what.

by Anonymousreply 317September 17, 2021 4:54 PM

It just seems like if the police came a-knock in’ (and surely they did), he could have at least said “She wandered off and I looked for her but couldn’t find her and then I drove home.” There’s no danger in saying that at least. But to flatly refuse to even say a single word to the police? That’s … just beyond. I mean, it’s in his best interest to at least say *something*.

If he abandoned her and she was never seen again, and now he's refusing to even talk to the police about a missing person... then he's probably getting bad legal advice. Because if she's found dead and he deliberately obstructed the search, doesn't that make him liable or culpable? Especially if it's hard to establish the time of death, if there's any possibility that she was alive while he was refusing to help the police find a missing person, doesn't that make him somewhat legally responsible for her death?

Well, I think he knows she's dead, because he'd be trying to help find her otherwise. But the chances of her body being found are low whether she was murdered or fell off a cliff trying to get the perfect selfie, the American West is lightly populated. Look how long it took to find poor Phillip Krycek in an area ten miles square, but they'd be looking for Gabby in an area a thousand miles around.

I think you may be missing the point.

Gabby & Brian’s altercation outside the Moonflower happened the day before the newlyweds went missing/were murdered. Brian & Gabby spent that night apart, as instructed by the police.

The suggestion is that Brian may have killed the newlyweds while away from Gabby and she subsequently became suspicious of him, so he killed her.

The timeline does work which is why the police are looking at that angle.

'She was hysterical. She told me she slapped him and something about him pushing her' Rose, who's from Sarasota, said she met Gabby, 22, early last year on Bumble BFF and began hanging out with the couple at their home in North Port She said Laundrie came off as a sweet and caring guy, but was always worried Gabby was going to leave him and later tried to stop them from hanging out 'I'm her only friend in Florida to my knowledge and that's not because she can't make friends, he just didn't want her to have friends,' she said The two were so close they even shared their locations with each through an iPhone app, but when Laundrie found out, he made Gabby delete it, said Rose

Not sure why people are trying so hard to defend this guy and make this somewhat Gabby's fault, but I think it's a reasonable theory to believe Brian was trying to take Gabby's phone and van and abandon her, she fought to get her stuff back because she was terrified (and with good reason), and Brian spun it to say "gosh officer, we both have mental health issues, we're just trying our best, we don't want to separate tonight, she only gave me one little scratch." He gets sympathy for dealing with "the crazy girlfriend" and it throws the cops off just enough for him to buy a few more days so he can actually abandon her or kill her.

Fuck them and fuck his lawyer who had to have known that he did a runner.

R420 = They would have had enough evidence to arrest him days ago if the Van gave any real clues or evidence of a corpse. That's why I think he choked her to death and left her in the middle of nowhere. Even if he stabbed her he probably did it outside the van so I really don't think any major evidence was left in the van. Surely he would have torched it rather than drive it back home filled with incriminating evidence. ?.

The police have had the van for some time. Supposedly Brian arrived at the parents house, in the van, on 9/1.

by Anonymousreply 423September 18, 2021 4:54 AM

I don't think so, R240. I do think he knows exactly where her body is, though.

The reason I don't think he stashed her body in the van to bring with him is because seeing her corpse and having to deal with it's realities (i.e, the smell and fluids) would make the fact that he killed her in a rage for dumping him too "real" for him. This guys is an abusive pussy. Abusers are, at heart, cowards and bullies. He is running from the reality that he killed Gabby, running from having to take any responsibility for what he did, running to Mommy and Daddy, etc.

I believe she was killed outside of the van and he hid her body. Since he's been so kindly /s/ granted time to go and cover his tracks and destroy evidence, I believe he's buried her corpse or destroyed it in some way.

Hopefully, he fucked it all up, like he's fucked everything else in his life up. I also hope that he fucks up his eventual attempt at suicide so he can rot in jail for murder with only the "voices in his head" to keep him company.

Was Brian ever seen at the parents house by anyone other than that family? Did Brian really return to FL, or was the van driven back by someone else? I know that's a stretch, but the entire affair has gone bonkers.

I agree with you R422. But R417 made it sound like he had two weeks to dispose of the body, which he didn't. He arrived back to Florida 1/9 (apparently).* If forget the details of when she last spoke to her mother. Snapchatted, etc and was last seen, but if he killed her, it sounds like it was 28/8 or 29/8. He had a very small window to dispose of the body and hightail it back to Florida with the van.

A person doesn't have to go to great lengths to hide a corpse out in Wyoming. Just take a back road in the woods and carry the body a hundred feet from the road and cover it with leaf litter, or carry it out into some scrubland and cover it with dust and twigs. Trying to sink a corpse in a tourist area like Jackson Lake would be stupid, when you've got hundreds or thousands of miles of back roads nearby, with no other cars around and barely any inhabitants, and nobody's going to bother checking why the vultures are circling in one spot. Look how long it took to find poor Phillip Krycek in a dry land park ten miles square, and then think how long it'd take to search all of Wyoming! I mean look at this photo, you could hide a human corpse anywhere in that scrub and it'd be invisible to anything but a corpse-sniffing dog, and this is just one valley of hundreds. The whole huge state is similar.

The only way they'll ever find her is if he confesses, or he was stupid enough to dump her some place obvious, like Jackson Lake.

I think the family is not being truthful and he left before they noticed he was missing on Tuesday. Also why would they not inform the lawyer beforehand.

The family may believe he is capable of harming himself which is why they let police in, maybe he left a note.

I'm a lawyer. You can refuse to talk to the police and it is not obstruction. It is their job to make or solve the case. They are not your friends, nor are they going to "help" you. Think about OJ. Anyone with common sense knows he did that, but the State was unable to prove that he was legally responsible. You can be sitting next to a smoking gun that just killed someone but if they cannot put that gun in your hands with you pulling the trigger, chances are you're going to walk. No body = no crime. For all the legal system knows, Gabby is sitting on a beach in Brazil right now sipping a margarita.

The court of public opinion might be against this guy but it seems to me like something happened where he could be legally culpable so the smartest thing he can do is STFU. The court of public opinion can't put you in jail.

Some good points made in the Twitter feed. If the parents told law enforcement where Laundrie is, considering how they obstructed before, why does LE believe them?

R486, you are absolutely right. Every piece of advice out there instructs people to not talk to LE, at least not without a lawyer present. And I do believe that part of this interest is the fact that she’s a pretty, blond white girl, but it also is more than that—it’s the whole intrigue of the boyfriend leaving her behind and holding up in his parents’ house, as well as the young girl as victim trope, putting her trust into someone else’s hands and getting “punished” for it.

So much easier for the general public to see the consequences of bad friend choices by watching a true crime story evolve. Can't tell you how many on social media have said they've been in too similar scary situations and didn't recognize it at the time.

[quote]The lists on Petito’s account bear labels including “Colorado,” “Utah,” “craters to Teton,” “near Yellowstone,” “from Yellowstone to Glacier” and “to Washington.” The “Utah” list includes 32 locations, far more than any of the other lists.

[quote]Petito’s social media accounts confirm she visited many of the Utah locations marked in her “Utah” list in The Dyrt app.

[quote]One of Petito’s reviews on The Dyrt was for a primitive camping area just east of U.S. Highway 191 in Utah’s Grand County. That location, on the outskirts of Arches National Park, was one of several in the vicinity of Moab, Utah marked by Gabby Petito.

[quote]Gabby Petito wrote this review of a primitive camping area just west of Arches National Park in Grand County, Utah on July 29, 2021.

[quote]The Moab area is significant in Petito and Laundrie’s travels, as it was the place where they had an encounter with police on Aug. 12...

[quote]…Police reports and body camera footage show Moab police believed Petito had been the aggressor in the emotional situation. An officer separated the couple overnight, leaving Petito with their van while Laundrie checked in to a hotel.

[quote]The COLD team cannot confirm where Petito camped that night, however her The Dyrt account provides some potential clues. Petito had flagged possible campsites on U.S. 128 along the Colorado River, as well as in the Porcupine Rim area of the Manti-La Sal National Forest.

[quote]The Porcupine Rim site sits roughly five miles north of the place where, on Aug. 18, deputies from the Grand County Sheriff’s Office located the bodies of Crystal Turner and Kylen Schulte. Turner and Schulte had been reported missing two days earlier.


[quote]Petito had marked potential camping sites in Utah’s Skull Valley. Petito’s list in the app titled “craters to Teton” suggests she and Laundrie might have visited or planned to visit Craters of the Moon National Monument in southeastern Idaho after leaving Utah.

[quote]Petito and Laundrie might also have driven to Palisades Reservoir along the Snake River before entering into southwestern Wyoming en route to Grand Teton National Park. Petito had eyed potential camping spots east of the park, in locations that would afford scenic views of the park’s iconic peaks.

[quote]Petito’s last communications with family members are believed to have occurred in this vicinity. She reportedly told her family she was headed from Teton area to Yellowstone National Park shortly before she disappeared.

[quote]Gabby Petito’s list on The Dyrt for “near Yellowstone” includes a location in between Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks, in the John D. Rockefeller Memorial Parkway. The location sits in a meadow along Glade Creek a little over two miles southeast of Grassy Lake Reservoir.


[quote]The next site to the north on Petito’s “near Yellowstone” list is a backcountry campsite, labeled 4R1, within the heart of Yellowstone National Park. Unlike many of the locations Petito had marked on the app, the 4R1 site was not a place where she and Laundrie could have camped out of their van.

[quote]Yellowstone’s 4R1 requires a short hike in from the Canyon Village area of the park. 4R1 sits on Ribbon Lake, near the south rim of the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone. An overnight stay at 4R1 would have required Gabby Petito and Brian Laundrie to obtain a permit from the National Park Service. The COLD team cannot confirm whether or not the couple obtained such a permit or hiked in to Ribbon Lake.

[quote]Petito’s lists on The Dyrt suggest she’d expected to exit Yellowstone National Park via the park’s west entrance. Her next place mark was the Targhee Creek Trailhead along U.S. Highway 20 east of Henry’s Lake State Park in Idaho.

Maybe not, R486, but our henchmen can hunt him down and torture him until he tells us where she is.

Not a lesbian. A gay with two sisters, a niece and female friends, though.

R495 that could be any Florida cracker walking the streets. It also looks like a tattoo on the left arm. Brian doesn't have a tattoo.

[quote]a lot of women are going to grow up thinking if they take enough shit off of a guy, love him enough, wait out his mood/mental illness/temper

I don't think "a lot" of people "grow up thinking" this, R497, but [italic]some[/italic] women (and men) want to believe the toxic people in their lives will change.

Abusers (and assholes in general) don't wear signs saying they're abusers. People generally present themselves in a positive way when you meet them and then eventually reveal who they truly are. Physical abuse leaves a mark but recognizing mental or emotional abuse isn't always so easy and victims often become conditioned to believe they are at fault or are afraid to leave.

I finally looked up the domestic violence advocates referenced by R315:

[quote]Mindy Murphy, president and CEO of The Spring of Tampa Bay, says she sees the behavior of a victim in Gabby, based on her history of dealing with domestic violence victims.

[quote]”It was not unusual to hear her taking responsibility for her behaviors and, kind of, him not taking any responsibility for his. I tend to think that probably there was a lot more that he did to contribute to the situation than at least I saw in that first 20 minutes," said Murphy.

Why are you all obsessed with this case? Crazy people do crazy things. People die. Move on and talk about who should have won the 1986 oscars like a good Eldergay.

R503, why are you even posting here, then? Let me share—I don’t give a hoot about Days of our Lives. Do you know how many times I’ve posted in those threads? Zero.

Can someone please start a Thread #2 for this topic? This thread is now at the point where it’s virtually impossible to even begin to post a reply without the webpage crashing and reloading incessantly. 600 replies on one page is too much. I don’t know why this janky-ass site ever switched from the “20 replies per page” model. This is about my 25th try now. I’m trying to find out WHAT DO BRIAN’S NUTSACK AND TAINT SMELL LIKE right now?

Also, the only thing interesting about that “camping app” article about 12 replies upthread is that you can clearly see VPL on Brian and it is IMPRESSIVE.

[Quote]The lawyer, the parents, sister and anyone else who helped Brian escape, need to be arrested now....now that he has been gone, for abetting a criminal. The lawyer should be disbarred, at least

How can they do this if he wasn't charged with a crime? Unless somehow LE can prove he confessed to them..

by Anonymousreply 508September 18, 2021 7:39 PM


I tend to agree with you.

He wanted to go to Jackson's Hole to purchase stuff for the cover-up.

But then he thought, "I might be seen on the store videotape."

by Anonymousreply 509September 18, 2021 7:42 PM


He shaved off his beard. I figured he'd do that.

Florida is strange. The people and the laws are another breed.

Let's face it. Since Trump, a lot of lawless assholes have crawled out from under their rocks and right into the mainstream.

Who among us hasn't dreamed of leaving it all behind and taking off on a just-the-two-of-us trip with a flawed but hot guy? Well, this is why we don't live the dream.

R514 On what planet is this prematurely balding guy “hot”?

by Anonymousreply 515September 18, 2021 10:35 PM

Is he balding, or did he shave his head? Or is he balding AND he shaved his head to disguise it?

Because that's why a lot of guys shave their heads these days.

by Anonymousreply 516September 18, 2021 10:53 PM

[quote] is he balding AND he shaved his head

That’s the situation. There’s a pic of him somewhere in this thread where he has a little stubble growing in on his head and you can clearly see he has an advanced case of male pattern baldness. So not hot.

Here’s the pic. Yuck.

r480 I made it out alive, thankfully. Have been housed and gainfully employed for over 2 years now, making more money than i have ever. I did see that schizo asshole one more time outside of the county welfare office. he tried to be all friendly and i told him to back the fuck away. His grandma had actually called me during the time we were associated and told me to stay away from him and that he was dangerous.

So has LE determined that she, like the hiking family, are dead due to lighting strikes?

Damn that lighting!

[quote]Brian was clearly spotted speed walking away from his parents' home and then getting into a friend's car near the local Publix grocery store. Poster got a clear picture on his/her cell. Also offers a detailed description.

R495 Is he wearing flip flops in that pic?

by Anonymousreply 521September 19, 2021 12:49 AM

He reminds me of this POS. He was deemed hot by DL until they saw enough full-length photos to determine that he was hung like a Ken doll. Then — Poof! — no longer hot.

She flipped out and attacked him one too many times, and he either killed her or left her somewhere.

Maybe she's "Gone Girling" him.

Yes, R514, but camping in a van? In the wilderness? Uh, no. I require a bug free environment, gentle breezes, room service and indoor plumbing. A delicious pool if not an ocean. hot young waiters and wonderful food I don't have to prepare myself.

by Anonymousreply 526September 20, 2021 1:35 AM

Well that's you, R526, some of us would be happy with an ebook of verses underneath the bough, a loaf of Cliff bar, a jug of gatorade, and a well-hung thou, beside me singing in the wilderness. O, Wilderness were Paradise enow!
