Gabby Petito’s family: ‘extra guys’ can be blamed for her death


Gabby Petito’s family’s lawyers advised she could soon file charges against “extra men,” confirming that authorities had killed Brian Laundry, her fiance and the only person interested in strangling her.

Attorney Richard Stafford floated the possibility in a press release late Tuesday, stressing that federal prosecutors and Wyoming officials have urged family members of Petito and Landry to comment on the case.

“The Smith and Petito family were aware of the circumstances surrounding the suicide of the single suspect in Gabby’s murder,” attorney Stafford said in a statement Tuesday, referring to both the victim’s parents and stepmother.

“Gabby’s family will not make a statement at this time due to a request from the United States Attorney’s Office and the Teton County Prosecutor’s Office.”

Last month, the remains of the laundry were found after weeks of human hunting at Micahhatchee Creek Environmental Park, some distance from their family’s Florida home. She disappeared shortly after her fianc ಆರಂಭದಲ್ಲಿ was initially reported missing.

The couple traveled across the country in the summer and shared their adventures with photos and videos then shared on social media platforms. However, family members became concerned when the laundry quietly returned home from a road trip without her bride-groom.

According to his parents, he died on September 13 or 14.

On Tuesday, authorities confirmed that Landry, 23, died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head, five weeks after his body was found in a 25,000-acre nature reserve in North Harbor.

The mystery still surrounds the exact cause of Petito’s murder. Although the FBI named Laundry as an interested person in the case, he has never been charged in connection with her death. But in the days following her death, he was indicted for using two accounts belonging to someone else.

While it is not yet clear who the “additional persons” are, there has been speculation in recent weeks about whether or not Laundry’s parents will face any charges in the case. He faces scrutiny over failing to hear about Petito when his son returns without him.
