The American traveler was killed by “strangulation”


We now know a little more about the death of Gabby Petito. On Tuesday, the Teton County, Wyoming, medical examiner presented the findings of the autopsy, which had already called the death “homicide” in late September. According to Brent Blue, the 22-year-old was killed “by strangulation”. He did not give further details so as not to interfere with the ongoing investigation.

According to forensic analyzes, the remains of Gabby Petito, discovered on September 19, remained in the wild, near a campsite in Wyoming, for “three to four weeks”. She was therefore killed at the end of August. Considered a “person of interest” but not officially described as a suspect for the moment, her fiancĂ©, Brian Laundrie, who has been missing for a month, is still wanted by the authorities.

Arrest warrant

Gabby Petito and her fiancĂ© Brian Laundrie crisscrossed the United States all summer in a converted van, documenting their trip on Instagram and YouTube under the hashtag #vanlife. But after Brian Laundrie returned alone at the wheel of the couple’s van on September 1, the girl’s parents reported her missing to authorities. Her fiancĂ©, who is walled in silence, has not been seen since September 13. The young woman’s body was discovered on September 19 in a Wyoming national park (see timeline in box).

An arrest warrant was issued against Brian Laundrie by the American justice at the end of September, but not directly in connection with the death of Gabby Petito: her fiancé was charged with bank fraud, for having used the credit card of the young woman after his death.
