NORTH PORT, Fla.-Gabbi Petito died of suffocation, Teton County Judge Dr. Brent Blue said just weeks after the FBR found his remains in the Bridger-Teton National Forest in Wyoming, north of Jason Hall.
Blue last month portrayed the style of death as murder. Brian Laundry, the only person to be publicly identified in connection with his ex-son-in-law and his death, has not been seen since Sept. 13 and has a federal warrant for bank card fraud.
The remains of 22-year-old Petito were missing in the Wyoming desert for three to four weeks, Brent said, without elaborating on the possible impact of the autopsy.
“We thus know the cause and method of death, the cause of suffocation and death, is murder,” Blue said. “Under Wyoming law, no other information about the autopsy will be provided.”
She ruled out rumors that she was pregnant when Petito died, and said information about the potential suspect should come from law enforcement.
The FBRThe Acesparks Field Office is investigating Petito’s murder.
GABBI PETITO UPDATE: The FBI’s Decision to Leave the Victim Remains, The Cause of Death is “Very Extraordinary,” Dr. BADEN says
Blue declined to give details of the autopsy results, citing Wyoming law.
t Diaz, a long-time homicide detective in Miami-Dade, said the investigator concluded that he was suffocating due to a hyoid disorder, which he said could only be seen on an x-ray because of the body’s expected disintegration condition.
As of Friday, Petito’s remains are still being held in Wyoming, and Dr. Blue says the family is preparing to return to his home.
“Bringing him home is a family priority,” tenant attorney Richard Stafford told Acesparks.
Officials found Petito’s body near the Grand Teton National rk Wyoming On Sept. 19, traveler-bloggers spotted Petito’s 2012 Ford Transit truck in late August.
The discovery was made eight days after his mother reported him missing Long Island, New York, and 18 days after his wife, Brian Laundry, he returned home to Florida homeless.
“The death of Gabbi Petito at such a young age is a tragedy,” Laundry’s lawyer Steve Bertolino said in a statement on Tuesday. “Currently, Brian Laundry is accused of unauthorized use of a debit card belonging to Gabbi, while Brian is only considered a person involved in Gabbi Petito’s death. For now, Brian is missing and we will contact him wherever he is. He is expected to be charged with fraud. ».
The couple grew up in Long Island and began dating after they went to school together. They later moved to North Port, Florida, where they lived by renting laundry rooms. In June, they began touring the country in a white Ford Transit and planned to visit national monuments along the way.
But despite the unusual images circulated on Petito’s social media accounts, many TKTKs appeared during the trip.
On Aug. 12, witnesses called police in Moab, Utah, as if they had seen a washing machine hit outside an organic grocery store on Highway. No charges were filed, but police told them they would split up overnight and take the dirt to the hotel.
But it is unknown whether he entered. The landlord told Acesparks that the room was booked by a non-profit organization for victims of violence and was not registered in his name.
In late August, when Petito was seen for the last time, probably before his death, witnesses said they saw him crying and arguing with employees of the Merry Piglets restaurant at the Tex-Mex restaurant in Jackson Hall, Laundry, Wyoming.
Officials said they returned to the North Port home in the couple’s minibus on Sept. 1, a few months after they began their journey, but without a petit. The young woman was reported missing 10 days later, on Sept. 11, before her mother reported it to police in Suffolk County, New York. The government then confiscated the minibus from the laundry.
The laundress was later found to be interested in Petito’s disappearance. His whereabouts were unknown Tuesday afternoon. He was not charged in his death.
