Gabby Petito web sleuths edit OUT Brian Laundrie from her YouTube videos after his remains are found

SUPPORTERS of murdered vlogger Gabby Petito have edited out Brian Laundrie from her YouTube videos. 

Vlogger Gabby, 22, had been documenting a trip of a lifetime as she drove across the country with her high school sweetheart and fiancé, Laundrie.

Nomadic Statik is the name of Gabby's YouTube channel, which she set up with her boyfriend to document the cross-country road trip.

The first and only video on the channel has been viewed more than 6.1 millions times, with nearly 39,000 comments.

Indeed, they appeared to be having an amazing time in the videos and pictures they posted on Instagram and YouTube just weeks ago.

Gabby’s family now believe all was not what it seemed and Laundrie was suspected of strangling her to death. 

Now he has been edited out in a three-minute clip that strings together clips from her social media. 

Reacting to this, one Reddit user said: “it was all a mirage and an illusion. Why is our society motivating young people to feel they must manufacture such fairy tale imagery in order to be validated by strangers? 

“With all of Gabby's passion and talents, that she became convinced to spend them in this way is a commentary on the overwhelming influence that social media projects onto young people's world view.”

Barely a month into their adventure of a lifetime, the couple were pulled over in Utah following a 911 call about a domestic dispute.

In bodycam footage, Gabby seemed upset. 

Yet after questioning the couple, they decided to split them up for a night.

The next day the pair continued on their trip and a week later posted a YouTube video which they called Van Life: Beginning Our Van Life Journey, showing them laughing and kissing.

On August 24 they were seen leaving a hotel in Salt Lake City, Utah. 

It was the last time Gabby was seen alive.

Then Laundrie returned home without her.

After hiring a lawyer and refusing to talk, he then vanished too — five days before Gabby’s remains were found in a shallow grave in Bridger–Teton National Forest in Wyoming. 

On September 19, Petito's body was found in a Wyoming park. Her cause of death was strangulation.


Laundrie, whose remains were found on Wednesday, had been on the run since allegedly telling his parents he was leaving for a hike on September 13 – two days after Gabby Petito was reported missing by her mother in New York.

His cause of death is not yet known, and it may not be determined for some time.

The discovery of his remains has ended the weeks-long, 16-agency manhunt after his girlfriend Gabby Petito disappeared during their coast-to-coast road trip.

During Thursday's press conference yesterday the discovery of human remains, the FBI characterized the death of Gabby as “murder” for the first time.

“As you’re aware, the FBI and the North Port Police Department and our state and local law enforcement partners have been searching the area of the Carlton Reserve for Brian Laundrie, a person of interest in the murder of Gabby Petito,” FBI Tampa Division Special Agent in Charge Michael McPherson told reporters.

Brian was officially a "person of interest" in Petito's murder, but he was wanted by law enforcement for stealing and using her credit cards.
