Gabby Petito's parents speak out about her relationship with Brian Laundrie in trailer for shock new documentary

GABBY Petito's parents speak out about her relationship with Brian Laundrie in the trailer for a shocking new documentary.

The case of Gabby, 22, made international news earlier this year after she vanished in August 2021 while on a cross-country road trip with her fiancé Brian Laundrie.

The 22-year-old was reported missing on September 11 after her Laundrie returned to his parent's North Port, Florida home alone.

Gabby's body was found on September 19 in Grand Teton National Park, and her cause of death was revealed to be strangulation.

Now, in their first documentary interview, Gabby's parents are set to speak out on their daughter's relationship with Laundrie.

The Murder of Gabby Petito: Truth, Lies and Social Media will be available to stream on Peacock starting Friday, December 17, and it will give insight into Petito's story, the unanswered questions about her case and the devastating conclusion.

Gabby's parents and stepparents reflect on the life of the 22-year-old, including sharing childhood memories and details that have never been seen before.

"It was like every parents' nightmare. Just like, in a flash of second. She's gone, she's missing," Gabby's stepfather, Jim Schimdt, recalls in the trailer.

“The thoughts that were going through my head is something – something really bad has happened to her. It's still unbelievable. I don't understand it," Gabby's mom, Nichole Schmidt, says in the trailer.

Petito’s father, Joseph, and stepmother, Tara, appear in the trailer as well and describe the time their daughter was missing as “horrific” and “a blur”.

“Her bright, beautiful light touched a lot of people,” Tara says in the trailer.

Laundrie, 23, was named a person of interest in the disappearance and went missing himself as the search for Petito continued.

On October 21, the FBI announced remains found at the T. Mabry Carlton Jr. Memorial Reserve and Myakkahatchee Creek Environmental Park belonged to Laundrie.

Coroners determined Laundrie died from a gunshot wound to the head, ruling his death a suicide.

Since their son's suicide ruling, Laundrie's parents, Chris and Roberta, were pictured walking in the woods where his remains were found.

Exclusive pictures obtained by The Sun show Chris and Roberta back out in the woods of the Myakkatchee Creek Reservation on November 30, over a month after they found a white bag filled with their fugitive son's items.

The couple were pictured carrying a backpack as they marched into the same campgrounds that investigators and volunteers intensely combed through during the search for Laundrie.

Following a three-hour morning journey deep into the backcountry, Chris and Robert reemerged, holding hands as they walked back to their car.
