The Moab Police Department has found themselves in a fix. The cops have been accused of the heinous crime of covering up evidence in the Gabby Petito case. Reportedly, the evidence included bodycam footage of Petito tearfully claiming that Brian Laundrie had assaulted her in the past.
What Was The Video All About?
The police department, which is located in Utah had released two videos. The first video was released on the 16th of the last month. This happened less than a week after Petito was reported missing. Two weeks later another video surfaced. This happened after the District Attorney accused the department of covering up the major pieces of evidence. The video footage gives a major breakthrough in the case as it shows Petito admitting that Brian was hitting her.
Where is Brian Laundrie?
The mysterious disappearance of Brian Laundrie also points fingers towards his active involvement in the case. The State Attorney for the Palm Beach County has claimed that more serious criminal charges will be levied upon Laundrie if he is found alive. Brian is said to be either absconding or missing. Petito’s death has already been ruled as a homicide and with the vlogger’s boyfriend missing, one can safely ascertain his involvement.
How is the World Responding to the News?
The case has been facing multiple reactions from the media. With Pete Davidson mimicking Dog the Bounty Hunter, who is involved in searching Laundrie, audiences have criticized such a gesture. Saturday Night Live faces backlash for this incident. There is another school of people who think that being a blonde woman has given Gaby Petito an upper hand and hence the case is moving at such a fast rate.
Dennis Davis, a hiker from California has claimed that he has interacted with Brian Laundrie recently. According to Davis, Brian asked for directions to see Gabby. In the light of these events, Gabby Petito’s stepdad has posted a photo of hers on social media expressing his grief. With such mixed opinions and Laundrie on the run, nothing can be assumed for the time being.
