I'm not saying it'll ultimately keep him out of jail, but it does put the onus on the police to gather up the evidence against him on their own.

Drainage ditch, or sex slavery. Those are the two ways she has ended up.

They need a forensic team on the Transit ASAP.

/or, she is fine and is just taking some alone time.

I'll tell you a tale as old as time but with a modern twist:

The hippie girl with the 'Let it be' tattoo ditched her bf after a bad argument and left with outlaw bikers (and now disappeared) and (the twist) now he's trying to limit his civil liability for going back home alone to Long Island.

So, somehow, in your mind, the boyfriend of a few years travels out west and sells his girlfriend into sex slavery?

What likely happened is they were living in a small van. Got sick of each other. She owned the van and told him to get out. He kills her and heads as far away as possible to make the body as difficult to find as possible since he could have dumped her anywhere along the route. He stays quiet and hopes to get away with it

I feel so sorry for this woman's parents. They must be absolutely terrified and heart struck.

The fact that this guy is saying nothing at all would be the absolute worst for them.

I truly hope the police solve this soon for their sakes.

Thank you for that comment. It does appear if the victim is white and god forbid blond, all she gets is ridicule.

But seriously, let's start with a guy driving someone else's van across the country after the owner vanishes.

Forget even making him a suspect yet, the VAN itself may be evidence.

No, there were two options. You just think that option B is less likely. Based on your experience in life.

The only certain thing here is that he knows where she is. If she just disappeared, he would not have left, he would have stayed and looked for her. If she left intentionally, she probably would have taken her van with her. Most likely she died in some way that is at least enough his fault to make him panic and run, but he definitely knows what happened to her.

He's guilty as sin.

Good thing for him and his family they are not in South Carolina.

They have a more direct way of resolving these issues than strongly worded statements from attorneys.

Sounds like plot... reality is rarely that interesting.

He killed her during a stupid fight. Alcohol was likely involved. He dug a grave both too short and too shallow. Animals have already been at her. If he found a good spot she'll never be found. If he didn't put her body in the van and he keeps his mouth shut he'll never be charged.

Alcohol or possibly other drugs, but yeah that is the most plausible explanation.

Sadly, even the sex trafficking idea is almost a false hope. Not impossible, but this case screams "where no one can hear you scream"

Oh, right. The twist is, apparently, even after the most recent incident where the lawyer admitted to attempting to commit insurance fraud, he still hasn't been arrested.

Maybe this guy SHOULD move to SC...

Being they were together for a year and a half and the cops had been called to a domestic incident at one of their campsites, it is doubtful he went through all of the trappings of the van life for months and travelled thousands of miles, while documenting their travels on YouTube, as some ruse to sell her to sex traffickers.
They had a fight. She told him to leave. He killed her. Started driving back east and dumped her body along the way.

Many years ago a white girl was kidnapped from her home and murdered. There was a ton of press about it, and even celebrities got involved. Meanwhile around the same time the same thing happened to a black girl (different perpetrator), and there was virtually no press.

I mean, that's one way to look at it. But in this particular instance the guy isn't even talking to his girlfriend's family. He didn't even report his girlfriend missing. There's ZERO chance this guy is keeping his mouth shut because he's completely innocent.
