The Gabby Petito case

Gabby Petito has gone missing while traveling across the country with her partner Brian Laundrie. They drove west from Florida in a van to visit national parks in this part of the US. Petito regularly published photos of the trip on social media, the last time on August 25. At the end of August, she also contacted her family for the last time.

On September 1, Laundrie himself returned home in Florida in his friend’s van. The man who hired a lawyer and refused to talk to the police disappeared after several days and his family reported him missing. Florida police started a search for Laundrie.

Gabby’s family notified police that she was missing on September 11. The authorities then began a large-scale search. Soon after, a 22-year-old blogger was found dead in Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming. The coroner stated that Petito was the victim of a homicide. In the first half of October, the authorities said that the cause of the woman’s death was asphyxiation.
