Teton County Coroner Dr. Brent Blue found in a written autopsy verdict released in 2021 that Petito died of “manual strangulation/strangulation.”

The search for Petito — and later the search for Laundrie — made headlines around the world in the summer of 2021, when Laundrie returned alone from his road trip.

After Petito’s parents lost contact with her, they contacted the Laundrie family for answers. Petito was staying with the Laundrie before a summer road trip. The Laundrie did not provide any information to Petito, and the woman’s family began to suspect that something might be wrong.

After weeks of searching, Petito’s body was found on September 19, near the border of the Burgar-Teton National Forest in Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming.

By that time, Laundrie – who was not immediately arrested – had fled from police who were watching over his family’s home. His disappearance sparked a manhunt that took several weeks, and even saw the ultimately ineffective involvement of Dog the Bounty Hunter.

Strange speculations about Landry’s location spread across the Internet, with some people claiming they had seen him driving in Central America or on the remote roads of Appalachia.

The reality was much more mundane; Landry went to a spot he loved to walk at a local nature preserve and committed suicide.

Police were initially unable to find her remains because much of the park is swampy, and early fall rains made searching the area nearly impossible. When the waters receded, police recovered Laundrie’s remains as well as a bag containing a water-damaged journal.

An analysis of the journal by the FBI succeeded in recovering some of its writings, including Landry’s confession that he had killed Petito.

In his version of events, he claimed Petito was injured in the fall and was in “extreme pain,” which is why he “ended her life, I thought it was a kindness…”

“I’m sorry for everyone’s loss. Please don’t make life harder for my family, they have lost a son and a daughter. The most amazing girl in the world. Gabby I’m sorry,” Laundrie wrote. “I killed myself near this creek in the hopes that animals would tear me apart. This might bring some joy to her family.”
