Why is this just coming out now? How convenient.....🙄🤔 Really? Totally avoidable, the police had her with them but let them both go, it was so obviously toxic, they could have saved her life if they had just listened to her. 'attracted national attention' as if we all asked for it. WTF there are plenty of girls who aren't blonde, young and white who go missing daily

There is no ‘God’. God’ would not have let this happen. She was an awesome blossom and she still is! Damn it. Tragedy, so sad! While maybe not in this case, removing governmental immunities from liability would make the world a much safer place. 'The problem is municipalities responsible for police would go broke in a week.'

I do not know what is so great about that, but I can try to understand. The answer will become relevant, I hope. poor girl 😥

Brian Laundrie admitted to killing Gabby Petito in notebook entry, FBI revealsBrian Laundrie admitted he killed girlfriend Gabby Petito in a notebook entry he wrote shortly before he took his own life, the FBI revealed Friday. I'm tempted to ask why the hell someone would write this in a notebook, but then again, if you're insane enough to do what he did, I guess you're insane enough to do slightly less insane things like documenting those insane things in a notebook. Homens invejosos, malditos. Does anybody think there was any doubt he didn't

Investigators believe the “timing and content of these messages are indicative of Mr. Laundrie attempting to deceive law enforcement by giving the impression that Ms. Petito was still alive,” the agency said. Steven Bertolino, the attorney for the Laundrie family, didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment. The widespread attention on Ms. Petito’s missing-person’s case and death also sparked debate as many advocates and others said that missing-person cases involving people of color often don’t receive the same consideration. There were more than 40,000 missing women in the U.S. whose cases were considered active at the end of 2020, according to National Crime Information Center statistics, the country’s central database for tracking crime-related information. Nearly 21,000 missing women were categorized as white, which includes both Hispanic and non-Hispanic white women. Around 14,000 were Black, 927 were Asian and 578 missing women were Native American. The statistics are the closest to a complete picture of missing persons in the U.S., but don’t represent all missing persons since local law-enforcement officials aren’t required to submit missing persons reports for people above the age of 21 to the NCIC database.
