New information has emerged in the case of Gabby Petito’s family civil lawsuit. The woman was murdered by her boyfriend in 2021. The tragic death was allegedly hidden and covered up by her killer’s family. This led her family to sue in civil court.
The depositions reveal that Laundrie informed his parents that Petito was “gone” and urgently needed a lawyer weeks before her remains were discovered.
Petito’s parents — Joseph Petito and Nichole Schmidt — allege that Laundrie’s parents and their attorney knew Petito was dead but lied to them and the public by issuing messages of hope that she’d be found.

The depositions confirm that the Laundries knew Petito was dead almost 2 weeks before a search was started for her. And over a month before her remains were found. This significantly impacts the dynamics of the case.
