Gabby Petito’s body has been found, according to the Teton County coroner in Wyoming, and a man hunt is ongoing for her fiancé.
The coroner conducted an autopsy Tuesday (September 21) on the remains cops found Sunday (September 19) in Wyoming’s Grand Teton National Park and the coroner confirmed the remains are indeed Gabby Petito.
The death has been ruled a homicide.
Watch the news report below.
Gabby and Brian had been on a cross-country road trip for months in a white van, and Gabby was documenting their steps along the trip, on social media, in an effort to start a blog.
She had recently quit her job at an organic juice bar, and she was exploring a new passion project.
While traveling across the state of Utah, a 911 caller said he observed Brian hit Gabby on the side of the road.
Listen to the 911 call below:
When the police caught up with Gabby and Brian on August 12, 2021, Gabby was clearly distraught as she explained to the cops, crying, that the argument started with Brian that morning because she has OCD and she was trying to clean up the van.
The cops questioned both Gabby and Brian during the stop, and they observed some scratches on Brian’s face and neck.
But, Gabby nor Bryan admitted to hitting each other, and neither one wanted to press charges so the cops let them go, with the recommendation that they spend the night apart.
I find it interesting that the cops got a call about a domestic dispute, and clearly saw signs of a physical altercation, but still let both of them go.

Nearly a month later, on September 11, Gabby was reported missing by her parents, who revealed Brian was not cooperative at all in trying to locate her.
The FBI is conducting a man hunt for Brian, who is believed to be the last person to see Gabby alive.
This is an extremely sad story. We send our condolences to Gabby’s family and friends.
