She might have been pushed, fallen off a cliff by accident, been murdered, or trafficked.

But whatever happens he knows that something happened.

How long can someone not speak to the police? I know he doesn’t have to speak to the police, but how long can this go on? Or will it be years until it goes to trial?

I just read this on Daily Mail:

Utah police have revealed they responded to an 'incident' involving 22-year-old 'van-life woman' Gabby Petito and her boyfriend just two weeks before she was last seen in Wyoming. Moab Chief of Police Bret Edge said: 'Our officers did respond to an incident involving Brian Laundrie and Gabrielle Petito on 12 August 2021 however, neither Brian or Gabrielle were the reporting party. Officers conducted an investigation and determined that insufficient evidence existed to justify criminal charges.' It not clear what the incident was about.

Exactly so odd that they are able to just let the lawyer talk and not push to talk to him.

Hmmm. Wonder if more will come out eventually about this.

But being her boyfriend is somewhat the only person looking like a suspect somewhat right now; can't the Authorities make him speak or take him in to ask him questions? It doesn't make sense that it's his free will not to speak to authorities when a person is missing for possibly over 2 weeks now??

Clearly, I must not know the laws very well. Chat Icon

I don't think they can force you to speak though. They can bring you in for questioning, but you have the right to remain silent- like they say when they read you your rights.
So he can not say a word if he so chooses. He can sit there and stare at the wall and say nothing.

Duh! I forgot that right we have! LOL

But they should take him in for questioning. He would be alone and most likely can be easily intimidated and scared and may say something. Why they haven't done that yet is very odd to me.

His parents; I would think, can only hold him for so long.....

Unless they arrest him they can't force him to go in for questioning. No one is obligated to speak about anything. And once they arrest him he still has the right to remain silent. They wouldn't arrest him yet because it doesn't seem like they have any evidence.

The fact that the police were called in Utah leads me to believe it was a domestic dispute situation but who knows. So odd, you would think that if they weren't getting along or had a volatile relationship she would have let her parents know. Very sad.

Yeah, I just read that there is no evidence of anything for him to be questioned yet. But he can remain silent when he is questioned.

It is very odd to get a lawyer right away, though.

Her father was asked what he thought of the boyfriend and he said he can’t comment at this moment. Whatever that means.

Her Instagram has been shut down, so that leads me to think they are investigating things on it. A few people on the subreddit for her said that stuff was edited and posting dates don’t match up.

Investigators will probably find something on there to bring him in for questioning.

Edit: now the Instagram is back up. Chat Icon

They just declared her boyfriend a person of interest in her disappearance.

I think anyone who's heard the story has come to that conclusion already lol.

That was a headline that wasn’t true :(

The person of interest is true though so hopefully they will be able to make him talk.

https://www.instagram.com/gabspetito/?hl=en

It’s the web link, but you can see the user name is @gabspetito

People are analyzing the speech of the last few posts, which seems to have a similar tone to her BF’s. Previously, her tone was different and more simple.

From her Instagram you can then see her BF’s Instagram from tags.

There are so many of her IG posted that were "edited". He probably has no clue that editing a post is visible. And then when you go to his page, he has "edited" a lot too which tells me; he has edited her page. Many people are noticing that.

Although One post he writes on July 18th I find semi-disturbing:

"Beautiful park just with an unfortunate infestation of human beings" WTF?

I think he just means it's overcrowded.

I wonder if she overdosed and he got scared and left her.
They were very hippy like so who knows what they did together.

Also he came from LI too. His family owned a business in Bohemia.

I guess an incident occurred that scared some concerned people who were near them and they called the police. The cops classified it as a “domestic event.”

Not looking good.

Since he retained counsel, police can't question him w/o his attorney present regardless of whether or not they arrest him. his attorney will likely advise him not to answer anything. It also prevents the police from an endless interrogation when many false confessions are given.

It's very suspicious circumstances but it was very smart to retain an attorney

Thanks for saying that, JD. That’s the one thing I disagree with (when reading comments on social media). People think it looks bad that he retained a lawyer. I would get a lawyer ASAP whether I was guilty or innocent in this situation. I would handle everything else differently than this guy but it would be smart to get a lawyer.

Instagram claims it took down fake GP profiles but then restored it.

But BL spoke willingly to police over a domestic dispute in Moab, yet now chooses to remain silent. His lawyer is now claiming that "initmate partners" are often the first person of interest and speaking up would make him look guilty.

There's also word of other murders in UT that occurred when BL was there and his social media displays concerning content...this is about to get really crazy.
