In the midst of the scourge of femicide – from which no country is exempt – the case of Gabby Petito caused a media stir in the United States after she disappeared in the middle of a trip she had undertaken with her boyfriend to travel the west of that country for four months in a van.
In a trip that seemed like a dream, the 22-year-old influencer uploaded content to her social networks until the beginning of September when nothing else was heard from her. Since August 27, there was no reliable record of her, which unleashed a mystery about where she may have been until the moment that her disappearance was reported, on September 17.
Meanwhile, on the first day of that month, her boyfriend and traveling companion returned on his own to North Port, Florida, where his parents live and where he himself had lived with his girlfriend before the trip, which raised suspicions of the police who had already been alerted by Petito’s lack of contact.
After refusing to answer police questions, on September 13 Laundrie fled and he was singled out as the main suspect in Petito’s disappearance. Suspicions about Laundrie grew as the days passed, it was even suspected that Petito’s last communication with his family was his idea.
