Attorney for Gabby Petito Family Announces When Next Statement Will Be Made: ‘Time to Grieve’

by Kati Michelle

The Gabby Petito case continues to gain traction as new leads are followed. That being said, investigators still have a ways to go in corroborating the timeline and events of her disappearance. Brian Laundrie’s parents remain silent in terms of talking to the media, and Brian remains unaccounted for himself.

The Petito family, on the other hand, continues to work together with officials and media to get the answers they so desperately want and deserve. Their lawyer also made another announcement addressed to the public.

As per News Nation Now correspondent Brian Entin, the Petito family lawyer said the following: “I want to personally thank the press and news media for giving the Petito and Schmidt family time to grieve. We will be making a statement when Gabby is home. I will contact you to arrange a time and location.”

Most Recent Updates to the Gabby Petito Case

Brian Laundrie remains a top person of interest relating to the Gabby Petito case. “America’s Most Wanted” host John Walsh joined in the conversation vowing to do whatever it takes to find him.

After initially calling off the search for Brian Laundrie at the massive Floridian Carlton Reserve Monday, police resumed their search Tuesday morning. This comes after an apparent switch in the jurisdiction from local North Port Police to the FBI. With both teams of officials on scene, they are covering as much area as they can. Actually, their search opened up to the skies with drones to accompany their groundwork. The conditions of the reserve environment don’t make the search easy. As of 1 p.m. officials noted no sign of Brian Laundrie and nothing found.

As the search at the Reserve continues, several other tips have also come in regarding Laundrie’s possible whereabouts. First, officials received word of possible sightings in Alabama. Now, they are combing through new trail cam footage captured in Blaker, Florida. All sightings remain unsubstantiated until an official statement is made.

The Big Picture

At the end of the day, the case of Gabby Petito illuminates a lot of things. First and foremost, there is a family grieving here. Although the results of the autopsy have not confirmed a match of the body found to Gabby yet, we can’t imagine what the family is going through. Her father notably said “she touched the world” and that couldn’t ring more true. Community members and citizens worldwide are sending them support with tributes to their daughter. The latest involves a cross at the location officials found the body at.

Experts are also chiming in to try to prevent other tragedies in the future pertaining to domestic violence. Recent footage unfortunately seems to confirm domestic violence as a big part of this case. One park ranger actually spoke to Gabby directly at one point and warned of a “toxic” looking relationship.

We will provide any and all updates as they continue to roll in from official sources.
