    The family of Gabby Petito won the right to sue the parents of Brian Laundrie after a judge ruled that the Laundries' attorney made 'objectively outrageous' statements during the nationwide search for the missing van-life girl.  The Petitos' lawyer, Patrick Reilly, argued that Laundrie attorney Steven Bertolino provide false hope and caused emotional distress when he made statements about the search last year while allegedly knowing Petito was dead, the Sun reported.   'On behalf of the Laundrie family, it is our hope that the search for Miss Petito is successful and that Miss Petito is reunited with her family,' Bertolino had said at the time.  Judge Hunter Carroll said Bertolino's comments and the Laundrie's silence allow for the family of the victim to seek damages.  'Because the Laundries' statement by their attorney in the context of the unique faces of this case is objectively outrageous, the Court concludes that Plaintiffs [Petitos] have stated causes of actions for intentional infliction of emotional distress against the Laundries,' Carroll wrote in his decision.  Nichole Schmidt, Gabby Petito's mom, and her family will be...
    Two of America's top medical examiners have called into question Brian Laundrie's newly-unearthed claims that he killed his fiancée, Gabby Petito, out of mercy. In images of eight water-logged pages of his notebook, handed to DailyMail.com by the Laundrie family's attorney Steve Bertolino on Friday, Laundrie, 23, admits that he killed his 22-year-old fiancée after she fell into a creek and inured herself at Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming on their country-wide road trip last summer. He claims in the notebook that he battled to comfort Gabby, but she was rapidly deteriorating, crying in pain and shivering from the constant cold when he decided to kill her. Petito's death was later ruled a homicide by manual strangulation. But following the revelations on Friday, Medical Examiners Michael Baden and Cyril Wecht told FOX News that they had doubts about this version of events. Wecht, who has previously been involved in the investigations of former President John F Kennedy's and JonBenet Ramsey's deaths, noted that while signs of hypothermia are difficult to detect on a corpse, violent shaking like Laundrie described is...

    One of the Moab, Utah, police officers who was shown at the stop of Gabby Petito and Brian Laundrie in the notorious body-cam footage taken days before Petito’s disappearance has said he feels “desperately fucked over” about her killing. Officer Eric Pratt was one of the tourist town’s cops who questioned the couple on Aug. 12 after a potential domestic-violence incident between them was reported by a concerned onlooker. The officers let them go on the condition that they agreed to spend the night apart, and arranged for a hotel room. Petito was last seen on Aug. 24, and her body was found in a remote woodland in Wyoming’s Grand Teton National Park on Sept. 19. On Wednesday, an independent investigative report determined that the officers failed in their duties by not pressing any charges. The report said the officers should have arrested Petito after she admitted to striking Laundrie first during a fight, and it recommended that the cops should be placed on probation for their “several unintentional mistakes.” The report included an interview with Officer Pratt, who...

    JURASSIC Park could become reality after experts unearthed a ­fossil that may contain dinosaur DNA. Scientists believe it may have the first prehistoric genetic code yet discovered. 1The birth of a monster in Steven Spielberg's Jurassic Park If experts can extract the information, it raises the prospect of cloning a dinosaur — just like in the 1993 movie. The fossil, a piece of cartilage from the thigh of a peacock-sized caudipteryx, was perfectly preserved in volcanic ash. The beast roamed the Earth 125 million years ago and resembled the film’s fearsome velociraptors. It was discovered in northern China by a team from the Chinese Academy of Sciences and was in “exquisite” condition. The cells were mineralized by a process called silicification and experts have concluded some were healthy and others diseased at death, a study said. It adds that the fossilised cells cannot be considered “rock” because they contain remnants of organic molecules. Professor Alida Bailleul said: “We are obviously interested in fossilised cell nuclei because this is where most of the DNA will be, if DNA was preserved. Most read...

    Internet sleuths claimed Brian Laundrie, the lead person of interest in the disappearance and death of Gabby Petito, is hiding under a flower bed in his parent's North Port, Florida, home.  Videos surfaced on social media following drone footage of Roberta and Christopher Laundries tending to their backyard garden, with some believing that the 23-year-old fugitive has taken shelter in a secret bunker underneath the flowerbed.  The conspiracy theory comes as police continue to search for Brian, who went missing on September 14 and is said to be hiding somewhere in the vast 24,565 acre Carlton Reserve in Venice.  Two women claiming to be neighbors of the Laundries also showed up on Friday to post signs outside their home featuring a smiling Petito with the caption, 'Remember me? Gabby Petito. Roberta and Chris I once lived with you!'  @charlienovasite Zoomed in a bit more, same video as first zoomed in one.

    GABBY Petito and Brian Laundrie nearly didn’t go on their doomed road trip as they had planned a beach wedding which got postponed due to Covid.     The vlogger, 22, revealed she was engaged to Laundrie last July in a touching Instagram snap of the couple. 4Gabby and Laundrie had planned a beach wedding in FloridaCredit: Instagram 4The vlogger and Laundrie met while they were studying in high schoolCredit: Instagram Jim Schmidt revealed the couple had planned a small ceremony but were forced to pause plans as the pandemic hit. He told Fox News: “Covid happened so they put it (the wedding) on hold. They said they were going to live life.” Mom Nichole Schmidt said that the wedding wasn’t the main priority as the couple planned their cross-country adventures. Schmidt said last month that the young couple had “decided to call the wedding off” and go back to dating. She told DailyMail.com: “I think they kind of put that on hold just because they felt it was a little fast. “They were excited at first, but then they...
    Brian Laundrie's lawyer has claimed the fugitive flew home to Florida 'to empty a storage unit' five days after he and Gabby Petito got into a physical fight in Utah - before then rejoining his fiancee just two days before she made her final phone call to her family. Attorney Steve Bertolino told Newsday Tuesday that Laundrie, 23, took a commercial flight from Salt Lake City, Utah to Tampa, Florida, on August 17. Five days later, on August 23, Laundrie then took a return flight 'to rejoin Gabby' for the remainder of their trip.  Bertolino said the purpose of the fleeting visit was to pick up some items and close the storage unit because the young couple were thinking of 'extending the road trip' which was due to end in Oregon in October.    But the trip was in fact cut short, with Laundrie driving the couple's white campervan back to his family's home in North Port, Florida, on September 1 while Petito's body was discovered in a park in Wyoming over two weeks later on September 19.  Brian Laundrie and Gabby Petito...

    MIAMI (CBSMiami/CNN) – The sister of Brian Laundrie has doubled down on her assertion she has no idea where he is, as authorities search for him after the death of his fiancée Gabby Petito. “No, I do not know where Brian is. … I’d turn him in,” Cassie Laundrie said in an exclusive interview with ABC’s “Good Morning America” which aired Tuesday.

Petito was found dead September 19 in a national forest in Wyoming, 18 days after authorities say Brian Laundrie returned to his parents’ Florida home without her following a cross-country trip the pair took this summer.

    Brian Laundrie's sister Cassie broke ranks and spoke out on Monday, saying she 'didn't know' if her fugitive brother had murdered his girlfriend Gabby Petito and claimed that their parents refuse to talk to her. She also said she is 'livid' at her parent's lawyer Steve Bertolino, who told the press Friday that Cassie saw her brother twice since Petito's disappearance – on September 1 and 6 – despite her previously telling ABC's Good Morning America, 'I haven't been able to talk to him. I wish I could talk to him.'  Cassie was seen confronting a group of protesters, which had rallied outside her home since Bertolino's statement three days ago and interrogated her about them on October 4.  'I am losing my parents and my brother and my children's aunt and my future sister-in-law on top of this and you're not helping,' Cassie told them. 
    INSTAGRAM sleuths have spotted a potential "sign" that Gabby Petito had been crying while still posting photos before she disappeared. It comes after police footage emerged of the"van life" blogger crying after an altercation with boyfriend Brian Laundrie which caused them to hit a curb and prompted police to flag them down. 4This is the photo online sleuths say indicate Gaby had already been crying in JulyCredit: Instagram @gabspetito 4The hunt is on for the only person of interest in connection with Gabby's deathCredit: Instagram @gabspetito The two high school sweethearts documented their nomadic "van life" through national parks in the American West on Instagram and YouTube.

Ms Petito's family reported her missing 10 days later. Several weeks earlier, police in the Utah town of Moab were called to a possible domestic violence incident. Bodycam footage showed Ms Petito crying and complaining about her mental...
    THERE were a number of vital clues that led cops searching for Gabby Petito to the missing 22-year-old's body and police hunting her fiancé, Brian Laundrie. The couple was around two months into their planned four-month cross-country road trip touring national parks around the United States when Gabby vanished sometime around August 27. 5A number of vital clues that led cops searching for Gabby Petito to the missing 22-year-old's bodyCredit: Tiktok / Gabby Petito 5Gabby Petito and Brian Laundrie's van has been key to the investigation after it appeared in a YouTuber's videoCredit: Instagram The young woman’s death was ruled a homicide and there were "visible signs of trauma consistent with an attack" Jennifer Shen, retired San Diego Police Department Crime Laboratory Director, told The Sun.  The frantic search is ongoing for Laundrie, who disappeared from his parents' Florida home days after returning from their cross-country vacation without Gabby on September 1.

    "I wanted to get going," she added. "We're out of water." She then told the officer that Laundrie refused to let her back into her own van, which made her "really mad." The officer then asked Petito about marks on her face and arm, and said, that it looked "like someone might have hit you in the face." "Is there something on your cheek here?" he asked. "Did you get hit in the face?" Petito can be seen fidgeting before she responded, "Um." The cop continued, "It kinda looks like someone might have hit you in the face? And then over on your arm — your shoulder right here that's new, huh? You have a new mark." Petito answered, "Yeah, I don't know." The officer continued, asking to see the other side of her face and asked once more what occurred. She initially responded by telling the officer that Laundrie's backpack struck her as she struggled to get inside the van. ...
    Newly-released bodycam footage has revealed Gabby Petito told cops Brian Laundrie had hit her and cut her face by grabbing her 'with his nail' during a domestic incident less than two weeks before she was last seen alive. The never-before-seen footage from a second officer's body camera shows the cop pointing out 'new' marks on Petito's face and arm after pulling the couple's van over in Moab, Utah, on August 12. Asked if Laundrie had hit her, Petito answers: 'I guess.' 'He like grabbed me with his nail, and I guess that's why it looks, I definitely have a cut right here. I can feel it, when I touch it it burns,' she tells the officer.  The 22-year-old, whose body was found on September 19, quickly backtracks and defends her fiancé saying she 'hit him first' when he locked her out of their van and refused to let her in.  Meanwhile, Laundrie, who is currently on the run and is a person of interest in Petito's homicide, is seen defending himself and pushing the blame onto Petito as soon as...

    A NEW variant of COVID-19 with deadly mutations that give it "increased resistance to antibodies" was discovered in a Kentucky nursing home. The variant, called R.1, infected 45 residents and employees in the facility, including some who were fully vaccinated. 4R.1 has increased resistance to antibodiesCredit: AP 4It was detected in a Kentucky nursing homeCredit: Getty Images - Getty 4The US still leads the world in COVID infections R.1 originated in Japan, and has now racked up over 10,000 entries in the GISAID SARS-CoV-2 database, which researchers use to record genomic data. Scientist William A. Haseltine writes in Forbes:"R.1 is a variant to watch. It has established a foothold in both Japan and the United States. He added that it features several unique mutations that could give it advantages in "transmission, replication, and immune suppression." One of these, a mutation termed E484K located in the spike protein of the virus, gives it an "increased resistance" to antibodies generated by the vaccine. R.1 shares an additional mutation, the D614G, with all other variants that have overtaken the original alpha strain,...
