If you go on Daily Mail, they have bodycam footage from when the cops were called in Utah.



I just watched the video. An hour and 17 minutes. Police pulled over their van. Other police joined the first one in separate vehicles. After the two of them were physically separated, their stories matched pretty closely. It was determined that she was the physical aggressor, and he was the victim. He had some minor scratches on his hands and face. She wasn't charged with domestic violence, but the cop made her take the van overnight, and Brian was put up in a hotel room so they could cool off overnight.
She said she has severe OCD at times, and anxiety, and she was having issues that morning. He didn't appear to have any issues at the time.

I am watching the body cam footage. I am almost done with it. I don't think he did it. This kid is super nice, she was violent towards him and CLEARLY in need of medication. And the cop is so nice. But I am not sure how happy the cops wife is going to be that the fact that she is on anxiety meds is being broadcast all over the internet!

He seems to be on something too. These kids are the new generation hippy so I don’t doubt they do drugs.

To play devils advocate here, if you’re in an abusive relationship you can experience gaslighting and the belief that you’re over emotional or “crazy”. Abusers can be manipulative, charming, overly friendly, especially in front of law enforcement.

To add also it’s really sad to see how perfect it all seems on social media. Young people traveling, experiencing life in a way most can’t. And then all of this. Not all is as rosy as it seems sometimes and of course this is an extreme example.

This is the new generation. They thrive on attention from social media. This is why they all have so many issues.

I am familiar with this age so I can tell you they are all confused.

This. I interpreted it as this. It looked like gaslighting to me. He even said that he hoped she hadn’t said too many bad things about him. There are a few red flags that you can catch throughout the video. It’s really hard to see it if you have never been in a situation with someone who has manipulated you.

What I don’t understand is why she was saying stuff about her mental issues, they let her stay in the van? If she’s acting so “crazy,” then call in some medical help.

I’m also wondering if this is related to those two murders that happened around that time.

Did you hear or see the letter from her parents to his? Heartbreaking and how it doesn’t affect them is beyond me.

Found this timeline based on Brian Laundrie, if this is already posted somewhere, please delete.

??Brian Laundrie lives in North Port, Florida.

??He met Joseph “Joe” Petito and Nicole Schmidt‘s daughter Gabrielle “Gabby” Petito in Bayport-Blue Point High School in Bayport, Town of Islip, Suffolk County, New York, United States. They attended the school together.

??In 2019, he started dating Gabby and she moved with him in his home in North Port.

??In July 2020, he proposed to Gabby and she said yes. In the same month, he hiked in Colorado, USA.

??On October 28, 2020, he took to Instagram to share photos of him and Gabby with a caption, “Never got around to posting these! I’d die just to watch all of our memories on repeat, never loved anyone as much as this girl.”

??In April 2021, he and Gabby visited Blood Mountain in Georgia, USA.

??On June 17, 2021, he and Gabby went to her hometown Blue Point, Suffolk County to attend her brother’s high school graduation.

??On July 2, 2021, he and Gabby left from Blue Point for their cross-country camping trip. The couple travelled across the U.S. in a white 2012 Ford Transit van with a Florida license plate and spent time in Colorado and Utah, USA.

??On August 19, 2021, Gabby uploaded a YouTube video featuring a glimpse into her van adventures with him. She said after their first cross country trip in a Nissan Sentra, they both decided to downsize their lives and travel full-time so they handcrafted their 2012 Ford Transit van.

??From August 12-24, 2021, he and Gabby were in Utah. While they were in Salt Lake City, Salt Lake County, Utah on August 21, 2021, her father placed an Uber Eats order for her because she did not have WiFi due to power outage.

??Brian was in FL 8/17-8/23

??Around August 24, 2021, he and Gabby left Salt Lake City for Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming, USA, according to her mother. On August 25, 2021, their 2012 Ford Transit van was spotted at the park.

??On September 11, 2021, Schmidt reported Gabby missing to the Suffolk County Police Department. On the same day, police found him at his North Port home.

??After Gabby was reported missing on September 11, 2021, he hired an attorney and refused to speak publicly about her whereabouts, according to her family.

??Brian returned to Florida Sept 1

Yes.

I’d imagine it to be a very difficult situation to be in. A lot of people might say “if it were my son, I would urge him to tell.” But I think it is just one of those situations you don’t know how you’ll react unless you are actually in it.

You also do not know what he is telling his parents.

This is such an odd story. I’m sure the investigators are looking hard for anything to get him in.

If he had nothing to hide and didn't do it, why the silence? Sketchy.

I'm just speculating here but perhaps they got into another argument or physical altercation and he took off or she refused to get in with him and he left her somewhere and now something happened and he is freaking out. He knows where she is, he should say something

His parents are just as bad as I am sure he told them and they are parents too who should know better.

Exactly this ok you did nothing then say exactly what happened the last time
You saw her. If his lawyer can’t help him do that he needs a new lawyer!!

He has to know something and the way he is presenting himself Right now makes him look guilty!

That’s what I’m thinking. They fought, he left, came back and either she was attacked by an animal, fell, or he didn’t find her.

Either way, even if HE didn’t physically hurt her, why didn’t he contact anyone? Now he’s looking more and more suspicious

This morning on GMA there will be a short interview where his sister says their family hopes she returns safely and that everyone will see it was all just a misunderstanding.

Very odd. Going to see if I can catch it to watch.

If she was struggling mentally and wanted (or did) wander off on her own accord, why didn’t he contact her family? Or authorities? Just so many questions.

I want to read more about the couple that was killed by the creepy guy in Moab.

All I saw was that they were at the same bar.

Even GMA tis morning was like we don’t get it, she said nothing.

Something has to give. You would think with all this media they would start talking. Do they have no conscience?
