The cause of death of vlogger Gabby Petito is revealed
Forensic examination shows that vlogger Gabby Petito was strangled to death.
"In this way we find that the cause and manner of death are: the cause, the death by drowning and the manner is murder," said Dr Blue, forensic pathologist.
He added that, under the Wyoming state statute, no information other than the autopsy will be published other than the cause and manner of death.
The dead body of the 22-year-old blogger was found in the Bridger-Teton National Forest on September 19th. Petito and her 23-year-old fiancé, Brian Laundrie, had been on a long trip since July 2nd.
Regular updates from the couple on Instagram and YouTube portrayed a relatively happy and carefree trip, but after Laundrie returned to his parents' home in Florida on September 1 without Petiton, that story quickly broke.
Petito's parents reported him missing on September 11, more than two weeks after they last spoke to him on August 25.
Body camera footage released by the Moab Police Department in Utah after she was reported missing shows the couple was involved in an Aug. 12 brawl during a visit to Arches National Park.
Upon his return, Laundrie refused to speak to authorities, then he himself disappeared. His whereabouts remain unknown and he is considered a "person of interest" in the disappearance of Gabby Petito.
