Coroner Reveals Cause of Gabby Petito's Death



A Teton County coroner has revealed the cause and manner of Gabby Petito's death and how long her body lay in the Wyoming countryside.

Details behind the cut. [Warning, violence]The cause of death was strangulation, the manner was homicide, and her body lay in the woods for 3-4 weeks before discovery.

Her boyfriend, Brian Laundrie, allegedly fled from his parents' home in Florida shortly after authorities began searching for Gabby. The couple was traveling by van across the Western U.S.

So infuriating that he may have gotten away
So much for the people saying it was an accident, this was 100% preventable so sad.
I hope he’s k*led by a pack of female coyotes
i can't believe that demon is still on the loose

His sister being the only one to sympathize with Gabbys family and genuinely upset about her death is telling. She's probably a wreck that her brother is a murderer and her parents potentially helping him escape.

Also the vid of him on news is very Chris Watts. A field day for body language experts.

i really hate his parents. they helped him get away, probably gave him.money, know where he is and don't seem to care. it's disgusting.
His parents are probably part of the reason she's dead. They clearly excuse all his behaviour.
Sad yet predictable. I get so infuriated knowing, thinking over and over that they could have stopped this if they cared. If they had actually cared about the dv call, if they had proper dv training, if they followed that dv training. I'm so sad for her and her family. I don't want this to happen to anybody else.

Spokane nurses want strangulation to stop being overlooked in domestic violence cases

A person strangled by an abusive partner is 750 times more likely to be killed by that same person, but the signs often aren't visible.

"In over half of strangulation incidents, there are no visible signs of the assault. Even though Washington state categorized strangulation as a second degree assault in 2007, making it a felony, in most cases no charges are filed because the victim doesn’t disclose it and medical staff or police don’t ask.

Nurses at MultiCare Deaconess Hospital in Spokane are working hard to change that.

They’ve wrangled nurses across the community in an effort to educate medical staff and first responders on the importance of screening for strangulation. Last year, the group of nurses rallied the Spokane Police Department and Spokane County Sheriff, representatives from every fire district, the local ambulance company, the YWCA, domestic violence prosecutors and community Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners (SANE) to join their cause.

In November, the nurses rolled out a pilot program at the MultiCare Deaconess emergency room. Now, it’s expanding to include the MultiCare Valley location and the two other hospitals in town, Providence’s Sacred Heart and Holy Family.

Jennifer Jordan, a nurse educator in the Deaconess emergency department, said most victims who have been strangled come in to the hospital with other complaints, such as sexual assault or domestic violence. Research shows that most patients will not say they’ve been strangled unless they’re directly asked, she said, but when they are asked, most will disclose it.

This isn’t just a problem in Spokane, Jordan said. It’s a deficit in emergency departments across the country. For now, the nurses want to start with a citywide effort to screen with a simple, yet important, question: Have you been strangled?


For medical staff, the answer will determine what next steps they need to take: a CT scan, overnight observation, or discharging with instructions for follow-up and a list of social support resources.

Even dictating specific instructions for discharge is vital, Jordan said, because some of the symptoms may not appear for weeks, months or even years later.

Once patients answer, "Yes," their chart gets flagged, notifying all the providers that the patient has been strangled. It’s a fairly detailed questionnaire, Jordan said, to get the most complete picture of what happened. Law enforcement may follow the same screening but add in more legal questions that don’t apply to medical staff.

Other health factors, including increased risk of stroke, brain damage, heart attack, pulmonary edema and miscarriage, are related to strangulation. Death can occur weeks after the assault.

It’s safe for victims to disclose they’ve been strangled to medical staff without fear of their perpetrator going to jail for assault because it isn’t part of mandatory reporting requirements. Victims may not want their assaulter to be jailed for a myriad of reasons — the average domestic violence victim takes seven attempts to leave their partner — so telling medical staff is a safe option, even if they do not want it disclosed to law enforcement."
I have things to say about strangulation in pornography too
ugh it's become so normalized
The sheer number of women who have sex with men who have confided that men started to strangle them with no warning during sex is huge, shockingly so. I've read at least half a dozen from this comm alone, and far more from women I know online and in real life.

These men are practicing to kill women.

I've tried to bring this up with so many people but always get shot down as a prude who's against sex-positivity or whatever. It's incredibly frustrating.

Yeah, it's concerning how many men (and women!) are into "choking" these days. And they think that there's a safe way to do it like "blood chokes", but no form of choking or strangulation is safe. In general, I don't think we talk enough about why people enjoy certain kinks. Why does someone want to hurt their partner to get off? Why do women think that it is "sex positive" to enjoy being called names and spat on and hit? It's just sad and honestly scary, but if you try to bring it up with young people, you get shouted down as a prude or TERF or some other name.

Just yesterday I was wondering if they'd found him...after conveniently letting him get away. And she'd been out there for a month. Poor thing.
Poor Gabby, hope her family can find some kind of solace and closure during these awful events
My timeline for this is a little off. Has it really been 3-4 weeks in between him leaving that state/coming home and her body being found or was she killed earlier than previously thought?
The last communication she had with anyone was August 27th, and her body was found on September 19th. But the August 27th communication was that weird "Stan" message her family doesn't believe was really her. Brian hightailed it back to Florida on September 1. The timeline is strange because nobody knows for sure when she actually last communicated with her family.
I only hope he’s alive so he gets his ass in jail
His parents are horrible people too
If they can’t be or aren’t charged, I hope her parents bring a civil suit against his parents and destroy them because they are trash. I don’t know whether he’s dead or not, but if he is, I hope it was at the hands of wild animals.
yeah, if his parents walk unscathed from that whole charming misdirect it’ll be unsurprising but infuriating
They can be charged with different things if any way they slowed or blocked investigation including lying. The problem is with this case blowing up so big the prosecutors will be more inclined to make a deal to get it resolved.
i don't want him to be dead. i want him to be caught and to suffer. i'd want his parents charged too.
I want his parent arrested as well. There's no question that he killed her and that they knowingly helped him escape. Idk if he'll ever be caught, but they deserve to go to jail.
i just really need that pos to be found, dead or alive
Distressingly predictable. That poor girl. I can't stop thinking about how culpable the cops are in this; they treated her like she was hysterical when she had every right to be panicked.
