You recall the murder of “Van Life” YouTuber Gabby Petito – her possessive boyfriend Brian Laundrie murdered her and then later, killed himself. Prior to the lead up of the murder, the two of them got into a physical fight in Utah, that was witnessed by other drivers, who called 911. They said they saw the man (Bryan) hitting the girl (Gabby). But when cops pulled them over, they didn’t recognize the “signs” and also ignored Gabby’s injuries and actually treated Brian like the victim and put him up in a hotel.
It was a bizarre reaction, to say the least.
Well, now, the parents of Gabby Petito have released a selfie that she took of er swollen, bruised and battered face, just before those Utah cops pulled the couple over… and it’s quite shocking and so sad, and really tells the story of what kind of monster Bryan Laundry was.
Here’s the photo:
Daily Mail reported that the timestamp on the selfie shows it was taken at 4.37pm on August 12, 2021.
Minutes later, a witness called 911 and said they’d just seen Laundrie attack Gabby in a parking lot in Moab.
Gabby has tears in her eyes and a bloody red bruise around her eye.
Attorneys for her family claim officers who responded to the incident ignored her injuries.
They say the police’s failure to take proper steps to protect Gabby contributed to her murder later that month.
Gabby’s family has filed a $50million wrongful death lawsuit against the Moab Police Department, alleging that officers failed to properly handle the 911 call after a witness claimed he saw Laundrie hitting Gabby and trying to steal her phone just weeks before her death.
The lawsuit names the department, two officers who responded to the call and two former leaders.
Commenting after the release of the pictures, Brian Stewart, at the law firm of Parker & McConkie, said: ‘Moab police failed to listen to Gabby, failed to investigate her injuries and the seriousness of her assault, and failed to follow their own training, policies, and Utah law.’
Police bodycam footage of their response to the incident shows Gabby wearing the same clothes as in the selfie.
It’s so sad, that poor girl deserved better than what she got. Ladies, don’t stick around with an abusive guy.
It’ll never “get better.”
