Gabby Petito, the young girl who disappeared on a trip with her boyfriend, Brian Laundrie, and was later found dead in Wyoming, was killed because of strangulation, but her death left a series of questions which will remain unanswerable- a local coroner says.
Dr. Brent Blue who is a county coroner previously revealed that Petito’s death is a homicide, he further refused to provide details about Gabby Petito’s autopsy or the potential suspect of the case, saying that he had limited information which he could legally release to the press.
Who killed Gabby Petito and at what time she was killed are some questions which will remain a mystery.
Although, there are more than 90,000 missing cases in the United States, the case of Gabby Petito has received a lot of attention from social and print media as she was reported missing on 11th September and her remains were found right after one week near the campgrounds of Wyoming.
The authorities are still searching for her boyfriend, Brian Laundrie, who returned to his home without her after the trip, but later, he vanished from his residence.
The autopsy report of Gabby Petito’s remains included a complete body CT scan which was further examined by a forensic pathologist.
“The autopsy took more than three weeks to complete and included outside specialists and an analysis of toxicology test results,” as per Blue.
“It was just a matter of making sure we had everything right,” he added in an online conference.
“It was quite the media circus and continues to be,” he added. “Unfortunately, this is only one of many deaths around the country of people who are involved in domestic violence.”
Blue further added that Gabby Petito’s body remains were left in the spot for more than three weeks which is the reason that the exact date of her death will remain uncertain. “Death certificates in the state of Wyoming allow for approximate dates and variability of those dates,” Blue said.
“There will not be an exact date of death on the death certificate,” Blue added in a statement.
