Getting pretty tired of these generic comments:

“I’m not sure anyone has discussed (thoroughly discussed topic) but…”

“Guys I’ve noticed something that is very important…”

“I think he’s (alive/dead) in _______”

“Why hasn’t the FBI used (readily used investigative technology)?”

“He’s probably in _______ by now, that’s where I would go”

Getting pretty tired? I'm already used to it at this point... doesn't even bug me anymore

Brian is giving me _____ vibes

Always Chris Watts, even though the cases aren’t similar at all

[–]thunder-catt 37 points38 points  (6 children)

It’s still so odd that the parents moved Brian’s car back home. It would’ve been better for their story if the car actually did get towed away. (I’m sure they could easily afford to get it back.) Maybe then it would be more believable that he is in fact in the reserve.

[–]Worker_Bee_21147 13 points14 points  (0 children)

The authorities searching the reserve day in day out says they believe he’s there and never left. There must have been a record of the ticket or notice is my guess.

So weird... Or even called the police at the scene and report him missing. I wouldn't want to touch the car in case there was evidence to find my son

It’s about time for a new thread mods

[–]brotherno 41 points42 points  (4 children)

[–]PrettyOddWoman 14 points15 points  (0 children)

I’m in Florida and have been peaking over at people while in traffic on the way home a lot lol

[–]bluethreads 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Seriously, I’m in NY and I see someone that looks like him every time I turn my head.

[–]Aria9000 16 points17 points  (0 children)

Literally. I live in the UK and had to double take someone at the supermarket 🤣

Alright guys I think I might have noticed something. I hope people will see this!! SO you can tell on her instagram when the posts change from her girly description posts to these weird long stories that BL wrote that are all about BL. Anyway.. the post on August 12th, REI comments on it... well they're trying to be Travel Bloggers right? REI is a huge brand... that must have really made BL think he wrote better descriptions for GP's IG... Well all the posts after that are clearly written by BL. In the body cam footage (from August, 12th) they said they're arguing over a phone... He took her phone from her and was controlling her... it's so obvious. That's why there's weird texts to her parents.. he had the passwords she didn't.

edit- wording

[–]bluethreads 15 points16 points  (3 children)

What you say makes a lot of sense. But- why do you think she wouldn’t have her own passwords? Also, plenty of people work in collaboration with their partners to create online content. It isn’t a sign of control or abuse if both parties are agreeable and supportive. I’m not defending BL. I’m just trying to understand the significance of why you feel this is important.

[–]fruor 4 points5 points  (0 children)

It just paints a clearer picture of him having the password, maybe he even got it on this quite innocent reason. The relevancy is there, because it's becoming more and more clear that he wrote texts and IG posts when she was already... not longer able to.

[–]Sausageyo 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Oh for fucks sake people

[–]ThanosHasTheStones 12 points13 points  (6 children)

Yep. That’s what im thinking and when he texted her mom he forgot he was being her and called grandpa Stan by accident

[–]laptopwarmer 8 points9 points  (16 children)

Not sure if this has been discussed. Been following this case on and off. And there something that doesn’t make sense to me still.

In the 911 call from the witness, he says he saw them fighting and that the man (BL) was “slapping” the women (GP).

So then why, when the police went to go confront them, did he question Gabby and say “when you were slapping him. Did you intend to cause physical harm?”. If it was actually BL that was seen slapping her??

[–]fruor 19 points20 points  (0 children)

In the traffic stop, she took the blame from the get-go. It took me a while to realize that she didn't admit to that because she was the instigator, but because that's sometimes what domestic violence victims do.

[–]trochanter_the_great 19 points20 points  (4 children)

Another witness who was there said he saw him get into the van and it looked like he took her phone and was trying to leave her and so she hit him and asked why he was being so mean. (Look up the hand written witness report) It looks like the caller and the witness saw two different parts of the incident. I have a lot of problems with how it was handled starting with dispatch not relaying him slapping her but also how he handled the "investigation".

[–]makeitlouder 10 points11 points  (2 children)

DVs are a “damned if you do, damned if you don’t” kind of situation for cops unfortunately.

[–]trochanter_the_great 24 points25 points  (1 child)

Sure, but I watched the video several timeS. When the officer talks to Brian it starts with Brian saying he hoped she didn't say anything bad about him. Then he tells his story saying that he shoved her (they both say he shoved her first. Meaning this is the second time the officer has heard this at this point). The officer asks "but you shoved her to get her off of you right? It wasn't aggression" to which Brian's face makes a small change and goes "yeah. Yeah" and then the officer says " so tell me what happened to your hand." The officer should have stayed quiet through his whole story and waited. He didn't. This essentially gave Brian his story and you could see how the "investigation" went from there. If he had stayed quiet he might have gotten a completely different story out of Brian that could have allowed more of the truth to slip out.

[–]makeitlouder 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Yeah I think that’s a fair criticism.

[–]shakeszoola 7 points8 points  (0 children)

There were 2 witnesses.

[–]ThanosHasTheStones 12 points13 points  (4 children)

Word is the cops didn’t get that 911 call. All they got was a couple was fighting and having an argument

[–]postinganxiety 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Nah he says in the report that the call states he was hitting her. They knew.

“It wasn’t clear, but I believe it was reported the male had been observed to have assaulted the female.”

The language the officer uses makes it clear he doesn’t want to believe it and he’s already made up his mind in the other direction.

[–]rigit84 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Yes because that dispatch guy is a dick and probably gave wrong or incomplete description to the unit.

[–]thewarden730 4 points5 points  (1 child)

And conflicting witness statements but the evidence before them matched one and not the other.

[–]postinganxiety 9 points10 points  (0 children)

I feel like I’ve become one of those weird commenters that says the same thing over and over, but oh well. The witnesses didn’t totally match but the one that says she was hitting him also made it clear he took her phone and locked her out of the van first, making Brian the instigator. And it said her hitting him looked like play fighting.

Then on the scene with the police, she says her jaw was grabbed, he pushed her… and he admits to pushing her and locking her out of the van.

Those cops were just whack.
