Body camera footage shows Gabby Petito showing an officer how she said her boyfriend Brian Laundrie grabbed her face during a dispute on Aug. She went missing and died shortly after. Her family created a foundation in her name for missing persons and domestic violence victims.
This Aug. After two witnesses called police on the North Port couple seen fighting over a cellphone in public in Moab, Utah, the hourlong body camera footage of their encounter with police revealed several red flags, according to domestic violence experts. She explained she quit her job as a nutritionist to travel across the country and start a blog.
Hind noticed Laundrie was calm and friendly during his encounter with officers despite them knowing he slapped Petito. He was also captured making jokes and laughing with officers. On the way to a safe haven away from Petito, Laundrie talked about baseball with the officer, the body camera footage shows.
Petito was left behind to sleep in her camper van. Imagine what Gabby endured.
She said she hit him first after he locked her out of the van. She downplayed his abuse. Petito was last seen Aug. He argued over the bill and went back inside four times, according to witnesses. After Petito was reported missing and the story went public, the restaurant manager shared the situation with police.
After that, Petito may have wanted to separate from Laundrie. One hint is Petito told her mother Nichole Schmidt the pair had been fighting for weeks.
The victim could suffer more violence once the officer leaves If there was a chance Brian was losing control, that could have been a trigger for him. Her death was ruled a homicide. Laundrie was later named a person of interest in her slaying. His remains were recently discovered by law enforcement in North Port. Hind said guilt and not wanting the abuser to go to jail are other reasons why victims stay in a relationship.
Often, they are financially dependent on an abuser. The current housing market boom, lack of higher paying jobs and affordable child care impacts victims. Some sabotage a victim while at work by repeatedly calling, showing up, being disruptive, causing them to be late, not letting them go to work or have friends.
If they have children, they worry about custody. Children are used as a pawn. However, they begin with a safety plan and other resources that are all confidential. According to Alyssa Burns, domestic violence programs director at The Center for Abuse and Rape Emergencies in Charlotte County, the most common red flags in domestic violence, is the speed of the relationship. Control is exerted through isolation under the auspice of love. They insist on looking through their phone, demand pass codes and passwords for phones and social media s, Burns said.
And because the relationship began as loving and intense, the victim believes, if they just work hard enough, they can get that feeling back.
Hind said the key to look for in domestic violence victims is they are really good at survival, including many younger woman. Sorryan error occurred. Get Started. Log In Register. You are logged in. Switch s.
