- Wyoming Coroner Says Gabby Petito’s Death Was Caused by Strangulation.
- Petito was last seen alive on the 26th of August.
Ekohotblog reports that the 22-year-old young lady identified as Gabby Petito, who went missing on a road trip with her boyfriend and was subsequently found dead in Wyoming, was strangled to death, a local coroner confirmed on Tuesday.
Dr. Brent Blue of the Teton County Coroner’s Office, who had already declared Petito’s death a homicide — meaning she was killed by someone else — but did not reveal how she was killed pending further autopsy results, said she was murdered three to four weeks before her corpse was discovered on Sept. 19. Her partner, Brian Laundrie, has been missing for almost a month.
Petito was last seen alive on the 26th of August. Her body was discovered on September 19 at an undeveloped camping spot in rural northern Wyoming near the Grand Teton National Park’s Park.
Petito was on a cross-country road trip with her lover. Her parents reported her missing on September 11 after she did not answer calls or texts for several days as the pair visited sites in the West.
Brian Laundrie, her boyfriend, is a person of interest in her disappearance and is still missing.
Investigators have looked for Laundrie across Florida, as well as his parents’ house in North Port, some 35 miles (56 kilometers) south of Sarasota.
Last month, federal authorities in Wyoming accused Laundrie of illegal use of a debit card, saying that he used a Capital One Bankcard and someone else’s personal identifying number to make illicit withdrawals or charges totalling more than $1,000 during the time Petito was missing. They didn’t specify who owned the card.
