Another Weird Crime Story
« on: September 17, 2021, 11:18:23 AM »

Has anyone else been reading about this in the news?

It boggles my mind that the boyfriend is just hiding. He drives her vehicle back home, then gives zero information to anyone. Seems like either he killed her, or else she did something really bad and he's protecting her. It sounded like she was going mental when this all happened.

Otherwise, why not cooperate, at least through your lawyer? It will be interesting to see what the real story is here.

If there is no body, there's nothing that anyone can do, right?
 
And if they find a body, if they can't prove that the body was murdered, nothing again...

I would think a missing persons report could at least get law enforcement to investigate.  Would the FBI get involved for that? 

Just thinking they could get credit card/bank records and figure out where they stopped and what route the van took.  Get video from various locations to confirm where they stopped seeing her.  That would give them some place to start looking.  Since it was across multiple states I would think it might require FBI or someone like that.

For that matter, what about her credit cards and such.  Did she have her own?

I read yesterday that there was supposedly some sort of contact with police near the park that almost resulted in her being arrested on a domestic violence charge.

I agree, though, that this whole thing is very weird.

They had contact with POlice in Utah. The cops figured they were both having some mental health issues and declined to arrest her for domestic violence. There are quite a few places that have posted the body cam footage. The entire 1 hour plus encounter is posted on you tube.

I saw that yesterday but didn't want to sit through a whole hour of it. I wonder if someone has done an executive summary of it somewhere?

From what I read, I wonder if the woman had bipolar and was experiencing a manic episode.

Hum... I'm wondering if they may have been experiencing drug issues.

I was thinking that also.  It could be they split and she took off with someone else.  Not sure why he wouldn't say that if that was the case (at least to family).

Been sort of following it, but there's not much to follow. At the very least, it would seem that the cops could bust him for auto theft, since the van is her vehicle and he drove it home to Florida alone.

There was a guy near here that was the only suspect in his GF's disappearance.

He refused to talk to the cops and they had no real evidence so could not do anything.

However, it turns out he was a felon and thus a prohibited person and when circumstances forced him to move in with a family member who owned a shotgun they got him on felon in possession. 

So they put him away for that.

Thing is, the shottie was disassembled and in the attic and there's a good chance our boy didn't even know it was there.

So was that a fair way to get the guy?

Update -- of sorts: https://news.yahoo.com/gabby-petito-told-police-her-200602504.html

Just randomly skipped through the video because again, I didn't want to watch an hour of it. I certainly could have missed something pertinent, but from the snippets I watched, it seemed like he was protecting her from getting in trouble. For instance, when asked why he swerved into the curb, saying that she grabbed the steering wheel versus what seemed to have actually occurred, which was her hitting him. The cop seem to think that anyway.

I'm almost going back to thinking he's being silent to protect her. Also, now that I saw the whole travel blog thing, I can't help but think it might also be a publicity stunt gone awry.

Here is another option.
The incident in Utah seemed to indicate she was having some kind of mental aberration, possibly stress related.  She was hitting him which almost got her arrested that night.  They continued on their journey but her mental problems continued.  Because of that, she may have told him to get lost so he abandoned her (not smart) and drove home.  Petito may have then hooked up with somebody else in an effort to get home on her own - also not smart.

Just thinkin'.

The police might not have been able to make him talk but I bet a pair of jumper cables and some golf cart batteries rigged up will.

TLDR couple picked up the boyfriend and he offered them $200 to drive him 10 miles then freaked out and bailed when they told him they were headed for Jackson.

Sure as hell doesn’t sound like an innocent man…but they both sound like the kind of *expletive deleted*ing weirdos that are attracted like to the parks like flies to *expletive deleted*it.
