While Gabby Petito’s unnatural death is still in debate and no names, have been taken as to who is the prime suspect or so, an interview of Elizabeth Smart was recorded on October 13, 2021, with Facebook Watch’s Red Table Talk. Elizabeth wept on Gabby’s death as she nearly faced a death-like experience and can connect to it.
Gabby Petito is alleged to have been murdered, and she was declared dead on September 21, 2021, after her dead body was found unattended when she was out with her fiancé Brian Laundrie on a road trip.
Elizabeth Smart, who herself is a kidnapping survivor after she was abducted at the tender age of 14 years and was returned to her parents after a hiatus of 9 long months. In the Interview hosted by Jada Pinkett Smith and Adrienne Banfield Norris, Elizabeth vented her feelings out when asked about her Kidnapping.
She mentioned Gabby Petito in particular and said she understood the feeling. She stressed that she was lucky that she was out alive and didn’t end up losing her life, unlike Gabby, but she clearly states what it feels like to be on the other side where you die every day missing your family, feeling choked, and this feeling is much worse than death.
It’s terribly Heartbreaking for Elizabeth when she was speaking of Gabby’s death and her parents’ situation. When asked about her parents’ situation and reaction to her abduction, she spoke that her parents didn’t even know if she was alive or probably dead. They were counting their lives in hope.
However, Elizabeth Smart mentioned that she never lost hope; she definitely didn’t know whether she would return or not, but she didn’t lose hope. She said that she always wanted to get out of that trap and wanted someone to rescue her. She particularly pressured those times as Dark Moments. Elizabeth was kidnapped from her home in Utah when she was 14 years old back in June 2002.
Elizabeth remembered the night when she was kidnapped and was taken away somewhere in the mountains. She even asked the kidnappers if they would sexually assault or murder her, and she requested that if these were the cases, they should dump her body somewhere near her Utah Home so that someone could find it and perform the last rites respectfully.
Otherwise, her parents will live in a burden that their daughter eloped from the house, which would make their lives even more miserable.
Elizabeth feels that every victim of kidnaps, murders, rapes has the right to get identified by their family, and this could only happen when their bodies are found. They deserve to have a happy ending, even if their lives didn’t end well.
Gabby Petito, who was 22 years old, was declared dead on September 21, 2021, after her body was rescued from Wyoming’s Bridger-Teton National Forest on October 12, 2021. After an elaborate forensic analysis, it was confirmed that she died almost 3 to 4 weeks before her rescue of the dead body and her prime cause of death was strangulation. It was reported that Gabby Petito went on a road trip with fiancé Brian Laundrie.
Gabby’s parents filed a missing report on September 11, 2021, after Brian Laundrie returned from the road trip to Florida all alone. And after his return, he went missing from September 14, 2021, framing prime suspect charges on him and the police tried keeping an eye on him.
On September 23, 2021, a federal arrest warrant was issued against the prime suspect Brian Laundrie as it was tracked that he was using Gabby’s debit cards without any authority after her death. Until now, there has been no evidence against him for the murder charges of the deceased. Police officials are continuing their investigations.
