(DCWatchdog.com) – Breaking Now: In a case that has captured the attention of the American public in a way that hasn’t happened in several years, Teton County Coroner Dr. Brent Blue, who conducted the autopsy of Gabby Petito, just revealed that Gabby was strangled to death approximately three to four weeks before her remains were discovered on September 19th just outside the boundary of Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming.
Blue had previously announced that Gabby’s death was a homicide. But, today’s announcement updates that earlier tragic report with the detail that Gabby was killed through strangulation.
However, Blue declined to go further and therefore did not reveal if he has concluded whether Gabby was strangled by the killer’s hands or if other means, like a rope, were involved. He also declined to provide any additional information about the condition Gabby’s body was found in, stating that he is prevented from doing so by law.
It’s also probable that he and the multiple law enforcement agencies investigating Gabby’s murder want to keep many details secret while they conduct their multi-state investigation and continue the search for Brian Laundrie – Gabby’s former fiance who was traveling with Gabby and remains missing since he returned to his home in Florida with Gabby’s van.
Indeed, the coroner’s estimated date range of Gabby’s murder would appear to place her death in the timeframe when Laundrie would have still been with Gabby in Wyoming.
