Horrifying that there's a killer on the loose who killed Gabby and now her fiance.

Well it would depend on their vaccine stance. Has that important question been posed?

I'm sure this scenario is repeated much more often than any of us realize with others. It's just not national news for months... and the murdered aren't among the 95% upper echelons of attractiveness.

A big relief they didn't leave any children behind.

Do snakes shit?
Maybe there's an anaconda slithering around down there nobody knows about. Swallowed him backpack and all. What they found is what the snake crapped out.

Re: What happened to Gabby Petito?

Rumor is that the parents of Brian were provided with an offer of full immunity for telling authorities where he was. If that's the case than this is pretty much over. Just hope there's something like a confession Brian wrote in his notebook so the why/how doesn't remain a mystery for her family forever.

I think even if there is some kind of a confession in the notebook, it doesn't absolutely mean that what he wrote in there is truthful. He would just be giving his version of what happened and it may be inaccurate or completely false.

Re: What happened to Gabby Petito?

I always have an issue with "full immunity" in life and in movies/TV and always feel there should be some accountability. The parents would have cracked eventually. Maybe. Overall, too much media attention.

I guess we can all take comfort knowing that even though they won’t face criminal charges, they did wait long enough to allow their own son to kill himself without intervening. So….they won?

Re: What happened to Gabby Petito?

in an article today the attorney for the family stated that Brian's parents described him as "grieving" the last time they saw hi before he disappeared and went to the reserve. At the time he went missing, Gabby's body had not yet been found and she was only listed as "missing" and not "deceased". Why would he be grieving if he didn't know she was dead?

Re: What happened to Gabby Petito?

They broke up and he came home alone. Maybe he was sad the relationship ended and never saw it coming?

I dunno, I actually think it's a lot of money saved on tax payers since they found him dead. And the lawyers would have made even more money from trying his case. I'm fortunate not to have been in this situation and I know a lot of people don't agree but if he's dead it's justice served. Maybe not in the courts and not of her family's choosing but he still ultimately paid the price.

Well, yes, you're right, in terms of the cost to taxpayers who would've been footing the bill while this shitty loser was languishing in prison during his trial and possibly for 20 years on death-row or life while lawyers frittered away his parent's money on appeal after appeal. And when the parent's money ran out, it would've been we that taxpayers who were paying for his right-of-appeal, etc. Which is utter bullshit, of course. So, in a way, it was less buden. But, I referred also to the 'fruitless' search / manhunt that we still do not know much about... if his parents knew where he was but weren't telling, then, yes, it was a real waste for taxpayers which should be borne by or charged to the parents.

It's odd that this wouldn't have been apparent with the initial autopsy if it were a self inflicted gunshot wound.

I mean, he had that huge chrome dome, it should have been obvious.

So 2 different killers? Someone strangles Gabby and then while looking for her, Laundrie gets shot. Wow.

Re: What happened to Gabby Petito?

Were there any reports of a gun being found near the body?

You'd think but they had to bring in an anthropologist to help. He blew his head off in the wetlands area, so I assume he was in there for weeks just marinating. His face and head probably looked like a bowl of chili by the end.

Right. Aside from being underwater for awhile, i wonder how many critters got to his body. Seems likely in gator country.
