Gabby Petito’s Instagram Account

The remains of 22-year-old influencer Gabby Petito, who embraced the famous Van Life style by wandering the United States in a van, were discovered in the Spread Creek Dispersed camping site in Wyoming’s Bridger-Teton National Forest.

According to a statement posted on the FBI Denver office Twitter account, Teton Country Coroner Dr. Brent Blue’s “first conclusion for the manner of death [was] homicide”. Petito died as a result of strangulation. He also stated that her body was most likely abandoned in the forest for three to four weeks. He refused to comment on the bruises on the corpse or if it had been buried following an autopsy done Tuesday, 21 September, 2021.

The vehicle was seized by North Port police, according to a statement released by the department.

Brian Laundrie, Petito’s fiancé, has been considered a “person of interest” in the investigation and is still missing, according to the FBI.

Petito’s mother, Nicole Schmidt, reported her daughter missing on September 11, 2021 after she stopped sending or replying to texts, according to the Suffolk County Police Department. Petito’s last known location, according to a statement shared to Insider by the family, was Wyoming’s Grand Teton National Park.

According to claims in US media, Gabby was last seen outside a motel in Salt Lake City, Utah on August 24 – around 600 miles (965 km) from Yosemite.

On September 19, after a nationwide search, investigators recovered human remains now proven to be Ms Petito in a remote section of Wyoming’s Grand Teton National Park and the Bridger-Teton National Forest.

However, when Laundrie returned to Florida without Petito on September 1, 2021, no one was able to reach the influencer.
The FBI went to the residence after executing a search warrant, but he has already vanished.

Brian Laundrie has been missing since then, when his parents reported him missing after he departed for a hike at the nearby Carlton Reserve.

A spokesman for the North Port Police Department said, “Law enforcement authorities are still looking for Brian Laundrie.”

Story starts from here:

According to Petito’s Instagram postings, she began dating Laudrie in March 2019 and began traversing the nation with him. They began 2020 by travelling across California, and in February, they released their debut TikTok video under the identity gabbynovaa, with the tagline “road trip from New York to California.”
Petito and Laundrie moved in together in North Port, Florida, two years ago. By June, they’re back on the road.
Petito and Laundrie departed Blue Point, New York on July 2, according to Nicole Schmidt.

In a 2012 Ford Transit van, the pair started their adventure on July 2 in Blue Point, New York.

Gabby Petito’s bodycam footage from her August 12 encounter with Utah police shows the 22-year-old crying as she tells officers that her fiancé Brian Laundrie was a “downer” who didn’t believe in her dream. Petito explained abandoning her work as a nutritionist in order to capture her road journey with Laundrie in the documentary.

Utah police published the bodycam footage on September 16. On August 12, Moab City Police pulled the couple over after receiving a complaint about a possible domestic disturbance between them.

According to the Times, the police identified Laundrie as the victim of the event and arranged for him to stay in a hotel that evening. There were no charges filed.


Laundrie, the lone person of interest in this case, was still missing. His family reported his missing this september, claiming he went on a trip on September 14 and never returned.

The hunt for Brian Laundrie is on its sixth day, according to police and the FBI. Police dogs, drones, and all-terrain vehicles are being used to search the Carlton Reserve, a 24,000-acre county park in Florida’s Sarasota County.

His lawyer, Steve Bertolino, had planned a news conference, but cancelled it after meeting with the FBI.

FBI Tampa Division Special Agent in Charge Michael McPherson stated in an evening press conference on October 20, 2021 that Investigators discovered what seem to be human remains along with personal things such as a bag and notepad belonging to Laundrie at Florida’s Carlton Reserve. on October 21, FBI said that, a comparison of dental records has established that the human remains recovered the day before are of Brian Laundrie. According to the ME, he committed suicide by shooting himself in the head.

According to the Special Agent in charge this case is going to be closed soon. Schneider, the special agent in charge, stated in a statement that “all logical investigation processes have been finished in this incident.” “The inquiry found no other persons directly engaged in Gabby Petito’s unfortunate death except Brian Laundrie.”

I hope Gabby Petito receives justice and her devastated parents get answers.
