How we got here
Petito and Laundrie traveled from the western US in a white van this summer. They posted photos and stories on social media. But they stopped posting in late August, and Laundrie returned by himself to Florida, where they lived with his parents on September 1.
A family was not able to contact their relative, and they reported them missing. The police looked for them, but no one could find her. Her family was worried and told the police that she had gone to a big nature reserve close by.
Gabby’s remains were found in a jungle in Wyoming. Teton County Coroner Dr. Brent Blue ruled that her death was a homicide and said she died by strangulation.
Laundrie has not been connected to Petito’s homicide, but he is the subject of a federal arrest warrant for utilizing a debit card that doesn’t belong to him after she last spoke with her family.
Though their social media posts may seem perfect, there was actually a lot of tension and conflict in their relationship recently. The conversations that the mom would have with her daughter revealed that there was “more and more tension” in the relationship.
In addition, couple was involved in a disagreement, and the police stopped them after someone called 911 and reported that they saw one person hitting another.
A witness says that when Laundrie got into the van, Petito hit him in the arm. Then Petito climbed through the driver’s side door.
After interviewing Gabby Petito, Laundrie, and the witness, the police officers described what happened as an argument that turned into a fight. During this fight, people pushed and scratched each other.
