If you cannot make bail, it may not be a bad move, until all the evidence is gathered:And you do however, what you don't do, if your innocent, is run and hide. Tends not to leave a good impression.
It is probably a contributing factor in the disparity of fairness in the legal system between rich and poor defendants. The other is the caseload of the Public Defender's Office.The promise or expectation of possible benefits from prosecutors creates a strong incentive to lie, and the secretive nature of the jailhouse informant system makes cross-examination and other legal safeguards against unreliable testimony ineffective. In many wrongful convictions, defendants were not given key information related to the credibility of the jailhouse informants who testified against them including the benefits they received, previous cases in which they acted as jailhouse informants, and their criminal history.
I can assure you that in the case of murder, if that's the charge he may be facing, running and hiding from law enforcement and later on, the judicial process, has eliminated any chance whatsoever of having bail permitted. There would need to be extraordinarily extenuating circumstance(s) involved.If you cannot make bail, it may not be a bad move, until all the evidence is gathered:
Unregulated jailhouse informant testimony sends innocent people to prison—and even to death row —while costing taxpayers millions, and failing to bring justice to victims of crime. We need to reform the system.innocenceproject.org

At the time of his disappearance, I don't believe there was a warrant for his arrest. The police and FBI obtained PC for search warrants of the parent's home after her body was found.Also, Brian needs to understand that he has now drawn is family into the case.
Brian’s parent’s, if they assisted him in any way after knowing any details of a crime, could be charged with obstruction of justice. They would need to prove that they limited what they knew or didn't know from him. Something like, 'I don’t want to know’ or maybe he indicated somehow that things weren’t good, but never really shared with them what he was up to.
I predict they will find him, one way or another.A warrant for Brian has now been issued. I understand the arrest warrant has to do with Brian using Gabby's ATM card after her demise (i.e. unauthorized use). At least this will allow him to be held in place until they can bring additional charges.
Now the real issue is: "Where" is Brian? A warrant is of no use if they can't find the defendant to serve it........
How far would you go to protect your child?This case brings to light an interesting question. How far would you be willing to go to protect your child in a case like this?
Because they now have an indictment, even though not for murder and this being a federal case, Brian’s parents can and may soon be summoned to a appear before a federal grand jury. Doing so, takes this up a few notches. While they or their lawyer(s) can still invoke their Miranda right to remain silent, many would question why.
The public now knows that Brian used Gabby's debit card after the time of her death. This shows that she was unable to give her permission to use her card. which helps us understand the indictment for "unauthorized use". Evidence must point to that she was dead at that time.
