The FBI has officially listed the death of Gabby Petito to its Most Wanted — Seeking Information list as they continue searching for details about what happened to her.
The remains of 22-year-old Gabby Petito were found on Sunday at a campground in Bridger-Teton National forest in Wyoming. And now the Teton County coroner officially ruled Petito’s death as a homicide. As it currently stands, there has been no official cause of death. That will come when the final autopsy results come in.
The next step is gathering more information as to what happened and why. And to that end, the FBI has added the Gabby Petito case to its most wanted list. They are searching for information from anyone who may have seen Petito or Laundrie within the last month.
“Ms. Petito was on a cross-country road trip with her boyfriend visiting national parks in Colorado, Utah, and Wyoming,” the agency said. “They were driving a white 2012 Ford Transit van with a variety of stickers on the back. The van is registered to Ms. Petito with Florida plate QFTG03.”
On Tuesday, FBI Denver Special Agent in Charge Michael Scheider put out a serious statement.
“The FBI’s commitment to justice is at the forefront of each and every investigation,” he said. “The FBI and our Partners remain dedicated to ensuring anyone responsible for or complicit in Ms. Petito’s death is held accountable for their actions.”
Fiance of Gabby Petito Listed as a Person of Interest
As the FBI adds the Gabby Petito case to their most wanted list, they currently only have one person of interest. And that is Gabby Petito’s fiance Brian Laundrie. Although, with that they do not know the whereabouts of the 23-year-old male.
Laundrie returned home to Florida early last week in Petito’s van, however, Petito was not with him. She was still missing at the time and Laundrie refused to cooperate with police. Laundrie’s family told law enforcement officials that he had gone to the Carlton Reserve last week to go hiking. But no one has been able to see or reach him since then.
Rumors have been swirling all over social media that Laundrie is responsible for Gabby Petito’s death in one way or another. Either that or he knows something that law enforcement doesn’t know and he is refusing to speak up. On Monday, the FBI executed a home search of Brian Laundrie’s parents. That was that last place that Brian and Gabby were living before heading out west.
After the remains of Petito were officially identified, the family lawyer for the Laundrie family was being pushed for a statement. He only had five words to says when he finally did speak on the matter: “May Gabby rest in peace.”
