INTERNET sleuths have wildly claimed that Gabby Petito was “throttled with human force” after “fighting” with her fiancé Brian Laundrie at a restaurant.
Coroners revealed that the vlogger’s cause of death was “manual strangulation” at a press conference held in Wyoming on Tuesday.
Gabby’s remains were found on September 19 – a week after she was reported missing by her parents.
A tourist claimed she spotted Gabby and her fiancé on August 27 at the Tex-Mex restaurant Merry Piglets in Jackson Hole, Wyoming – the last day the vlogger is believed to have last been seen alive.
Nina Celie Angelo, of New Orleans, alleged she watched Laundrie arguing with a waitress.
While she said she couldn’t hear what words were being exchanged between Laundrie and the woman, she believed the spat was either over the bill or about money.
Angelo described Laundrie’s body language as “aggressive”, alleging that he left and returned to the restaurant around four times.
She claimed that at one point Gabby came inside and apologized for her fiancé’s behavior.
Internet sleuths claimed the date of the incident at the restaurant “matched” the timeline announced by Teton County Coroner Dr. Brent Blue.
Blue revealed that the vlogger’s predicted death was three to four weeks before her body was found. Her body was outside “in the wilderness” for this time.
One sleuth said: “I think the scene at the restaurant escalated after they left and he killed her.”
There is no evidence to support these claims as the date of Gabby’s death remains unknown.
Sleuths also claim August 27 was the day that Gabby’s mom Nichole Schmidt appeared to receive a text containing the word “Stan”.
A message from Gabby’s phone read: “Can you help Stan, I just keep getting his voicemails and missed calls.”
Internet sleuths claim “Stan” is a codeword for danger.
Gabby’s grandfather is called Stan – and it appears she is talking about him.
The vlogger’s mom Nichole Schmidt said she rarely called him by that name and admitted that she found the text “odd”.
Social media users wildly claimed Stan is a reference to the Eminem song in which a male partner tied up his pregnant girlfriend before killing her.
Coroners revealed that Gabby died from strangulation.
Brent Blue told CNN: “Throttling means that someone was strangled by human force. There was no mechanical force involved.
“There is no evidence that this was done by any animal as far as the cause of death.”
Blue confirmed that YouTuber was not pregnant at the time of her death.
He added that a toxicology report was unable to be released at this time.
Dr Blue declined to say more about the autopsy or the… Brinkwire Brief News.
