Ok peeps, I know I haven’t posted in a long time. I’ve had a lot on my plate as a single mom of two boys ages 8 and 10. I wear a lot of hats and sometimes some of these hats well, fall off. Some I’ve had to let go of and some I’ve been picking back up one at a time, as my time and patience allows. I started a new job which has been super busy and got a promotion so that equates to…even busier and I have side hustles that I juggle as well. I love writing and it’s always something I go back to because it’s just a part of who I am.
For those of you that don’t know this story, I’ll give a you a quick recap. Gabby Petito was a 22 year old Social media influencer/van lifer (btw I’ve been obsessed with these channels and I live my hippie nomadic dreams through them). Gabby went missing on September 11th (official report filed). After several days of searching and some tips from witnesses, her remains were discovered in Wyoming. It is believed that her finance 23 year old Brian Laundrie, has something to do with her death and is now a wanted fugitive on the run.
Ok. Now that that’s out of way, there has been a topic weighing heavy on my noggin (Yes I stole that one from Bailey Sarian on Youtube). This topic has nothing to do with side hustles or money, but it does have everything to do with moms.
I can’t help but feel empathy for Gabby Petito’s mom and her family. My momma bear instincts were hit hard reading this story as I want to get in my car and find this little S*%# myself! If her fiancé Brian Laundrie didn’t do this crime, he for sure knows something and needs to be brought in for questioning. I get a very Chris Watts vibe from him.
Here’s what we know about Brian Laundrie that is really bothering me. Brian Laundrie’s family has a net worth of 5 million dollars. What does this have to do with anything, you might ask?!
Since it has been reported that Gabby went missing, technically speaking about August 27th. And her being reported missing September 11th 2021. Brian Laundrie had time and possibly a substantial amount of money to get him the hell outta dodge! Having resources like this and the best lawyers could make it even more difficult to not only find him, but to bring justice for Gabby Petito and her family.
What else we know. It appears that Brian Laundrie’s parents have been misleading with what they know and possibly sent police on a wild goose chase looking for their son in the wrong area, in order to buy him some more time to hide.
This case is just distributing for so many reasons one being because there is police footage of an altercation between Brian Laundrie and Gabby Petito and she appears visibly scared, distraught and extremely upset, shaking and crying. Did the police in this case do the right thing? Both Gabby and Brian make it look like the whole incident was the fault of Gabby whom he claimed “got him with her phone”. It’s been reported that Brian said to the officer that pulled them over that day that Gabby was “toxic”. Could things be a classic case of ongoing domestic abuse and battered woman syndrome? Where there red flags friends and family may have missed?
Having been in this situation myself I see myself in her. I knew if I didn’t get away that my name would have been on the news. When you pass out a couple days after giving birth and instead of your significant other calling you an ambulance and helping you, he screams that you are “ruining his life”. In that moment I knew I had to get out! Sometimes all it takes is one moment to define your life forever.
