Was Gabrielle Swainson murdered by Freddie Grant? It was recently released that officials found blood belonging to the missing cheerleader in her bedroom. Earlier in the case police claimed that there were no signs of foul play, so this is a strange change of story that may lead to a negative ending in this case. Gabbiee's blood was also found in Grant's home on pieces of duct tape, so there were possible signs of struggle and a violent one at that.
That's not the only update in this tragic case; an attorney representing Freddie Grant wants a gag order on the case. This means the lawyer wants to silence any new information that may come out and incriminate Grant further -- not that his reputation could suffer any more damage, you know.
Gabrielle Swainson still hasn't been found and it's all but confirmed that she had been at Grant's home the day she vanished. Cellphone records indicate that her mobile phone was transported from her home to Grant's home. What needs to be figured out now is finding Gabrielle. The use of scent dogs and multiple search groups is necessary -- searching anywhere Grant may have been during the days after her disappearance. Hopefully this case ends well, but it truly doesn't seem so right now.
