Photo of a young woman with fair skin and long blond hair, wearing an orange patterned skirt and top that barely shows her midriff. She is smiling for the camera.Name: Gabrielle “Gabby” Petito.
Died: September 19, 2021 (Body found).
Age at death: 22.
Cause of death: Strangled.
Location: Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming, USA.
Disability: Potentially had a mental health condition, such as OCD or anxiety.

Details:
Gabby was a travel blogger who was on a trip with her boyfriend when she went missing.

Shortly before her disappearance on August 12th, police received a call from someone who said they saw Gabby’s boyfriend hitting her. When police stopped their van, Gabby’s boyfriend told them that they had been arguing about Gabby’s cleaning the van too thoroughly. Gabby was distressed at the time. Rather than a domestic violence incident, police interpreted the incident as a “mental health break.” According to the police report, both Gabby and her boyfriend said that she had “severe anxiety.” Whether or not she did have anxiety, the police dismissed concerns over domestic abuse because of their perception of her having a disability.

The next day, Gabby and her boyfriend continued their road trip. She was last seen alive August 24th.

Gabby’s body was found in Grand Teton National Park. She had been strangled, and her death was declared a homicide.

Case Status:
Brian Laundrie (Fiance), person of interest, police issued a warrant for using Gabby’s credit cards after she died. Body found during the police search; death ruled suicide.
