On Tuesday, Gabby Petito’s stepfather visited Wyoming, where his daughter’s remains were found, and marked that spot with a cross sign.
Gabby Petito’s dead body was found near the Spread Creek Dispersed Campground in Bridger-Teton National Forest. Almost a week later, after she went missing, her remains were found. Her death has been identified as a homicide.
On Tuesday, Gabby Petitio’s attorney Richard Safford stated on behalf of Petito’s family after Gabby Petito’s remains were found
Stafford said, “I want to personally thank the press and news media for giving the Petito and Schmidt family time to grieve,” and added that, “We will be making a statement when Gabby is home. I will contact you to arrange a time and location.“
The Gabby Petito case investigators have now shifted their focus to Petito’s fiancé Brian Laundrie, who was not present at his home last Friday, and according to his parents, he left his house and since then had been missing.
Brain Laundrie’s search has been continued. However, he has not yet been named a suspect for her fiancé’s Gabby Petito’s death. As per the police officials, the search operation has nothing to do with the crime.
Gabby Petito and her fiancé were on a road trip in a white convertible van. Allegedly, the deceased last talked to her parents when the couple was in Teton National Park in August. A few days later, her fiancé, Brain Laundrie, came back home, Florida, alone in their van.
Police officials declared Brian Laundrie as a person of interest. The search for him resumed today, September 23.
Petito’s family bashed Brian’s family attorney and demanded they erase photos of their daughter from the Yelp page. They also threaten to take legal action against him if he doesn’t comply.
On Monday, police reported finding a potential sighting of Brian Laundrie, 23, in Alabama. However, it is not confirmed yet that the lead was legitimate or not.
