The case of Gabby Petito († 22) is not only causing waves in the USA, it is moving the whole world. Since the disappearance of the Youtuberin, new information has appeared almost every day. There are also facts and theories circulating that are little known – but are hotly debated on the Internet.
1. Bounty exposed on friend
There has been no trace of Gabby’s friend Brian Laundrie (23) since Tuesday last week. An arrest warrant was issued against him on Thursday. Now a law firm in Tamba Bay has even offered a bounty on information about Laundrie, as “The Sun” reported.
Anyone who can provide information that leads directly to Brian Laundrie should receive a reward of $ 20,000.
On the same day, a neighbor of the Petito family promised a private reward for similar information, as reported by “My Suncoast”. The neighbor wrote on Facebook that he was offering $ 5,000 for clues that led to an arrest.
2. Two mysterious last text messages
The last news Gabby sent her mother worried her parents. She wrote: “Can you help Stan? I get his voice messages and missed calls all the time. ” Stan refers to Gabby’s grandfather.
Gabby’s mother found that very strange because the 22-year-old never called her grandfather by his first name, as reported by the Daily Mail. Three days later, the parents received another text message. It said, “No reception in Yosemite.”
The mother is convinced that the two messages did not come from her daughter. Therefore, the thesis is circulating on the Internet that Brian should have sent the SMS to lure Gabby’s family and the investigators on the wrong track.
3. Was Gabby pregnant?
In many known criminal cases, sooner or later internet detectives get involved. On their own, they search the net for new details about the crimes. In the Gabby Petito case, the detectives suspected that the 22-year-old was pregnant at the time of the disappearance.
This should prove, among other things, Gabby’s profile on the online platform Pinterest, as reported by “The Sun”. Gabby named a gallery there with “Oh Baby”, in which she collected tons of pictures of baby dresses and toddlers. Why she did that is unclear.
In addition, the Internet detectives claim to have discovered an ultrasound image in a YouTube video that shows the objects next to Gabby’s abandoned van. However, this cannot be seen exactly on the recordings. So right now it’s just speculation that Gabby was pregnant.
4. The couple had a “toxic” relationship
Close friends of Laundrie and Petito claim the young couple’s relationship was very tumultuous. Since they met as teenagers, the two are said to have clashed violently over and over again.
In an interview with People Magazine, Laundrie’s friend Ben Matula said that one minute the couple was in each other’s arms and the next they argued.
This coincides with the reports of several eyewitnesses. They saw the young couple arguing several times during their road trip through the USA. The two are said to have even fought.
5. Two women are said to have taken Laundrie with them in the car
Norma Jean Jalove claims she picked up Brian Laundrie while hitchhiking in Wyoming last month. She told Fox News that she took the 23-year-old in the car and dropped him off at the national park where Gabby’s body was later found.
Miranda Baker previously said on social media that she had taken Brian Laundrie with her. “When he got out, he was very grateful, but he was in a great hurry,” she said in an interview with “Good Morning America”. She didn’t know why he was in such a hurry.
