CONFIRMED: Gabrielle Petito has been found deceased
By - sunzusunzusunzusunzu
**Please, keep this thread about Gabby, not BL.**
I can't imagine what her family is going through right now, and poor Gabby dying at the hands of her own fiancé. RIP Gabby.
Guys. Please. She had tattoos. They are obviously going to check those before theyd ID her publicly.
I know we all want her to be alive but they've confirmed it.
Social media has changed homicide investigations forever. Youtubers accidentally caught the van on video parked here on August 27th. Wild times.
GP was doing all the right things -- explore, question, experiment. She's not going to learn if she doesn't make mistakes along the way. She just wanted to learn what this world was all about.
To all the brain dead people saying “aCtUAlLly NoT CoNfiRmeD” stop it.
My heart goes out to her family. Heartbreaking.
May Gabby Rest In Peace.
That body cam footage haunts me...
I guess he does not explicitly say "Gabby's body was found". But this tweet speaks volumes to me: https://twitter.com/josephpetito/status/1439716307268739072?s=20
Once I heard the FBI dude choking up, I knew she was dead. It's crushing
Rest in peace Gabby. So sad.
How long will it take to determine the cause of death?
RIP 💔 I hope her family finds peace and justice.
What a motherfucker. I pray she gets justice so her family can get some type of peace
Gabby’s dad just put out a [tweet.](https://twitter.com/josephpetito/status/1439716307268739072?s=21)
The mods have done an exceptional job keeping things respectful. It’s so hard sometimes to juggle “true crime!” With “real person with a family and friends” on reddit, especially. It has been wild to see this all unfold in such real time, and the QUICKNESS Gabby was found is amazing. My heart is broken for her family, I have a 19 year old son and I feel sick to my stomach thinking about how this could have been any one of our children.
They're still waiting for final forensic identification, but they all but said that it's her. No cause of death reported yet.
Rest easy beautiful. 🤍
I can't stop crying. I can't imagine what her family must be feeling. Gabby had her whole life ahead of her. This should not have happened.
The rumors that she faked this can stop now. Hopefully the ones that she was the abuser will stop soon, when justice will be served.
It’s been obvious from the beginning what we were dealing with here.
Expected but still heartbroken by this new development, RIP Gabby. 💔
Rest In Peace, Gabby….
Rest In Peace Gabby.
She was extremely trim, had tattoos…I’m sure they were able to generally confirm it was her but DNA without a doubt to go after the culprit
Literally said in the post to not make it about him. Learn to read.
This all feels so weird. Rest In Peace angel. You deserved so much better.
So just thinking about timelines, I believe the area where they were searching was related to the YouTube couples dashcam video where they saw the van on 8/27. This could give some credibility to the idea that she didn’t send the 8/30 text to her mother….
I NEED a coroner's report. Not for identity confirmation, but to know what happened to the poor girl.
That coroner has to be sweating from the pressure on this one. I'd say press is everywhere.
I'm just as guilty as the next as far as sticking my nose where it doesn't belong in terms of this case, but I can't stand the media coverage.
I didn’t know this girl but this is heartbreaking. Just as an observer, I’m truly sad for her and her family.
Can we leave picking apart the cause of death until there is actual relevant information. No one needs gore porn speculation on “how he did it”
So sad. She seemed really happy and fun. It’s really a tragic loss.
Arrgh, wish this had a happier ending.
Watched it live and I’m still sobbing. I knew as soon as it was announced that the found the body, but I was still hopeful. I felt a weird connection to her and I’ve been following this since the 11th. I’m absolutely heartbroken and I can’t imagine how her family and loved ones feel.
Just woke up to this terrible news. I really had so much hope for Gabby to have a safe return home. I want to thank the FBI and the police department who ran this investigation, a lot of hard work done in a short period of time.
i hope you rest in peace
Remember people: Gabby had a number of identifiers like her tattoos which make misidentification seem unlikely. Given that, and the family's acknowledgment, I'm willing to accept that it is her. Of course, it's not impossible that it isn't, especially if the remains were decomposed in such a way that the tattoos couldn't be used as identifiers, but I'm certain this is her.
Even if it wasn't Gabby all that means is they found some poor other girl dead in the wilderness
Poor girl, i hope they jail the fucker and throw away the fkn key. May she rest in peace :(
RIP sweet girl
I — I’m so heartbroken for the family. I can’t believe this.
**This is the location of the canopy searches have set up as seen in the helicopter news footage relative to the location others have determined for the van on the Sep 27th video.**
It is 900 feet away from the van, and almost directly across the river in a small grove of trees.
NPPD has just tweeted at 6:25 pm, “Saddened and heartbroken to learn that Gabby has been found deceased. Our focus from the start, along with the FBI, and national partners, has been to bring her home. We will continue to work with the FBI in the search for more answers”
May she Rest In Peace.
For everyone saying it isn’t confirmed to be her… the agent gave his condolences to the family. They know. They may not have a ‘formal’ identification but there are more ways than that to identify a body (clothes, jewelry, tattoo if it’s still visible etc). They know.
fucking right? just cancel the trip and break up
I'm so sorry, Gabby. May you rest in paradise
Will they actually be able to determine cause of death at this point? It's tragic to think she's been out there in the elements for almost 3 weeks.
Yes, bones show blunt force trauma as well as strangulation long after soft tissues are gone.
We can tell to a degree of certainty how an animal that lived 10,000 years ago died just by studying the bones/fossils.
It’s so sad. 22 is just a kid. So much life ahead of her, robbed from her. Now we can hope all resources are dedicated towards justice. Fuck, man.
My heart is broken for her family. RIP gabby
I was still holding out hope she might be found alive. Rest in peace Gabby 💔
I’m sitting here on my couch in tears..
hugs, my friend.
I’ve been enthralled by this case since before it was nationalized, cleaving to the hope that she was somehow still alive. It’s like we were all trying to manifest her back to life.
Wishing those who loves her some shred of solace and closure.
Has to be
Please keep thread on topic to Gabby only, as the mods requested.
They'll know, they'll know a time of death.
Had to have been.
Prayers to her family. May the questions on what happened be answered.
Very sad news, but at least it's a step towards bringing GP's family some closure.
All the "this is a hoax for her social media following" theorists should feel absolutely ashamed of themselves
So far what the news is saying is that it'll be treated as a crime scene but until cause of death is determined, Brian wouldn't officially be considered a suspect yet.
Tragic. Just tragic.
So so heartbreaking. Glad she can finally find peace. We love you Gabby. Thoughts and prayers to her family.
Gabby touched so many hearts. 💔
I hope they find Brian alive and kicking and drag his ass to prison. RIP Gabby, you deserved the world.
rest in peace gabby petito
Rest In Peace Gabby. I truly hope Brain is found alive and prosecuted to the absolute fullest extent. I also hope his family is charged with obstruction for basically letting him go in the wild (if true). If he is dead I hope he hates every second of hell.
I am heart broken but also glad we finally found you Gaby, now you can have the burial you deserve and your loved ones can start their grieving process 😓
I’m so upset. Her poor family. She was so young, she didn’t deserve this 😢
Imagine being the people who picked up BL hitch hiking knowing now they had a murderer in the backseat of their car
I think they’re primarily how they found the human remains found. Thank god she spoke up.
Rest In Peace and May your light spirit live on. 🌟
Titles on Reddit can't be edited.
I mean, her family is talking about her death on social media. I think they would know more than you.
It's the report I got on my phone but I understand what your saying.
It’s not officially confirmed but even the dad tweeted about the loss of his daughter. Doesn’t do anything for people to keep spamming this.
It's basically "confirm it's her without legally confirming it's her"
If her dad is saying it’s her, pretty sure it’s her! SMH
You need to relax.
It’s her. Legally they cannot say it’s her until it’s been officially ID’d, but it’s her.
matched the description of her in the area she went missing it’s obviously her 🤦♂️🤦♂️🤦♂️🤦♂️
I'm sorry but its 99% her. the body matches her description
Her parents are literally tweeting about their daughters death. She’s clearly dead.
I believe it is her as well. im merely saying that the mod is putting out the wrong info because it hasn't been officially confirmed yet
She deserved far far better than this. What an incredible young soul just starting her adventures... Poor girl and I'm just crushed for her family. I hope they can have some justice.
Rest in peace, Gabby
Wonder who 🙄
I’m so sorry!
To think of those youtubers hadn’t taken the time to review their footage. I think they really helped speed things up.
They said the remains match her description. They were sure enough to publicly issue condolences to her family, they know it’s her. THAT is how we know that it is her. It’s fucking her, you guys. RIP.
Yeah everyone saying “it’s not confirmed” like what, you think there’s another semi recently deceased young blonde girls remains that just happen to be in the exact location her van was at?? They wouldn’t have held the presser if it wasn’t 100% her. They just have to confirm with DNA because that’s SOP
You can hear in his voice.
Rest easy, Gabby!
So very sad for the family. All the volunteers and law enforcement should be applauded for their expansive effort in finding her.
How long does it take to confirm 100% with forensics
Dr. Baden just said a day or so after they can take samples
For those saying it's not confirmed, it has been visually confirmed with a coroner on site. The coroner will usually use identifying marks such as birthmarks, scars, tattoos, piercings, etc. to confirm that it is visually the person before getting them transported back to their facility so that finger print, dental, etc. can be confirmed.
Unidentified bodies have to be confirmed through dental or fingerprint records for the record and for documentation. It's a formality. If they identified her visually, it is almost without a doubt that it is her and that is why the parents have been notified. The rest right now is a formality for the medical system and legal proceedings.
Thank you, exactly.
my heart breaks. please i hope her family gets justice.
RIP Gabby. RIP
I definitely think he did they’ll find him soon
This is what I'm thinking
What’s the use in speculating something like this? The pathologist has to perform an autopsy and then maybe it will be made public how she died. Does it matter though?
Judging by the close quarters inside the van, it's likely so. Otherwise campers nearby would have heard something.
he could’ve intentionally done it or accidentally done it.
and when I mean accidentally I mean they were arguing and something happened
Please don’t make this thread about him.
Forgot to ad, hide a body to that list.
Heartbroken, Rest In Peace Gabby!
Wow this breaks my heart. RIP Gabby💜
About 7 to 8 hours ago according to agenda free tv YT channel.
While Bl is still missing they might be withholding that, or they simply haven’t had enough time to examine the crime scene and them her body.
Cause of death not confirmed yet
For those who are saying it’s not her: **her father just tweeted a broken heart. It’s her.**
People are saying that it’s not ‘actually properly confirmed’.
Police would not call a press conference and say that it is possibly her unless it was her. They would say that they had found female remains and more testing would need to be done.
They say that the body found has yet to be confirmed definitely to cover themselves on the small off chance they are wrong.
Poor baby, because that’s what she is; someone’s baby. My heart hurts for them right now. 😔😔
It was visually identified using last known markers. To be definitively identified, they will do DNA testing and medical records.
She also has tattoos so I’m sure they have a good feeling it’s her like you said.
Rest in peace, Gabby.
Bless her heart. Her poor family 😭
Rest easy you beautiful girl. Heartbreaking.
I’d say she’s in a better place now but in a way it takes away from the fact that what was done to her was absolutely cruel. She was only 22 years old, practically still a child, with a whole big beautiful life ahead of her with such incredible dreams and goals that were about to come within reach.❤️ May we never forget who she was before this tragedy and may we not let that man’s name be tied to her name and tattooed all over her spirit. Xx
Sending love to the Petito family. This is just so heart breaking
The title is misleading - it’s not been confirmed, just likely is
Even the text under the video says "The FBI says it found a body in Wyoming consistent with the description of the missing Long Island woman Gabby Petito. **There is no final confirmation yet whether it's her**, though, and no cause of death either." I mean they hinted very heavily that they believe it to be her, but the title is still inaccurate.
it was just confirmed by the FBI at the press conference
Description matches her - it probably is her but it’s not been said yet
My heart hurts for her family tonight.
RIP Gabby 💔
“No service, in Yosemite” was the text- she never made it there (for context)
Don't spread false information, the FBI denied to clarify what lead them to that area
I believe the video from the family that showed the van parked was what helped them find the body as it was only 900 ft from where it was parked.
Police officer on Fox News just now
Was this confirmed or just speculation?
They just said this on the news. They tracked that text and it took them to the area they found her body
There’s a good chance he’s dead too. I do find it odd though that his parents recovered his car and haven’t been a mess if they know he was isolated and suicidal. Im hoping they helped hide him away and they all gl down for their crimes.
I hope he tried and failed and is in pain
Rest in peace Gabby
I am sad it's her but I am relieved she is found so her family can say goodbye. This young woman was trying to spread her wings and just have a life experience, she didn't deserve this. Nobody deserves this.
RIP Gabby. She had talent, I'm so sorry she didn't get to carry it further.
The FBI agent felt emotional. Rightfully. Very sad.
I heard that too, which promptly made me shed a tear too. Absolutely heartbreaking
Honestly heartbroken. She seemed like such a beautiful person inside and out.
The fact that he left her there to rot, drove back to Florida where his parents protected him and didn’t report that he left. I hope charges come against them.
and if they knew anything, which it seems they may have, charge both his parents. May they all rot in jail.
They didn't confirm it but it's looking like it's most likely her
Right! It's not looking really good but there's no forensic confirmation
what did the FBI agent see? you don’t get to be FBI and be shaken badly by any dead body
It’s not just any body though it’s a young innocent girl.
I don't think it's just what he saw.
But he probably also called both her parents and spoke to them.
And then had to prepare this statement.
And that was probably his last couple hours.
Either he has a daughter that gabby reminds him of or something is reeeeeeal fucked up
Do you know this from your vast knowledge of FBI agents?
Or are you just trying to sensationalize? As far as I know FBI agents are human...
Loss of a young life is deeply tragic, I’m sure he was just shaken up, like we all are :(
probably just the circumstances surrounding it...
The FBI agent was very broken about it. Rest in peace
anyone else crying?
