Gabby Petito’s boyfriend Brian Laundrie is being compared to Chris Watts, who murdered his 15-week-pregnant wife Shanann and their two daughters in 2018. Petito, 22, was on a cross-country road trip with Brian when she vanished. The couple began their journey in July, but on September 1, the 23-year-old man returned alone in the couple’s van to his Florida home. Gabby’s family reported her missing to Suffolk County on September 11th, ten days after Brian returned. After their daughter failed to show up or contact them, they filed a missing person report. Gabby last spoke with her mother on August 25th, according to reports. Wyoming has been identified as her last known location. On the same day, authorities took possession of the van that the couple was traveling in before Petito went missing from Brian’s home. They couldn’t speak with Brian because he had already hired an attorney and refused to speak with the cops. He was recently named as a “person of interest” in the case. READ MORE
