It all started back in September 2021 when Gabby Petito’s parents held a press conference asking for help to find their missing daughter…
Soon after, Brian’s family issued a counter-statement via their lawyer: “This is an extremely difficult time for both the Petito family and the Laundrie family. I understand that a search has been organized for Miss Petito in or near Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming.”
It even gave false hope to Gabby’s family and said: “It is our hope that the search for Miss Petito is successful,” despite knowing their son killed his fiancé, on a trip she had described as a “dream.”
But the first hearing held on 22 June revealed how Brian’s parents failed to turn up, fueling rumors of an obvious conspiracy…
The lawsuit stated that Christopher and Roberta Laundrie knew the whereabouts of Gabby’s body during the time when authorities poured resources into a massive missing person investigation, PEOPLE reports.
