Now, avid followers of the case can get a deeper look into Gabby and Brian’s tumultuous relationship in the new Peacock documentary, “The Murder of Gabby Petito: Truth, Lies and Social Media.”
The documentary premiered on the streaming platform on December 17.

People react to Gabby Petito documentary
One horrified fan tweeted, “OMG I was this #GabbyPetito doc on Peacock last night. I kept throwing things at the TV every time that low life Brian was speaking on the footage they showed. It was hard, for real. So senseless. She was failed by so many people who should’ve known better”
Another reacted to the doco tweeting, “Watching this Gabby Petito doc on Peacock. This some sick stuff.”
“Watching this Gabby Petito doc and BRUH… that whole s**t was sketchy AF,” someone wrote.
On September 11 Gabby was reported missing and a week later, their worst nightmare became a reality.
“The thoughts that were going through my head were something, something really bad has happened to her,” Nichole Schmidt, her mother, recalled.
Gabby’s remains were discovered in Bridger-Teton National Forest on September 19, two days later, the remains were identified as the 20-year-old.
Laundrie was the only person of interest in her disappearance and death.
Unfortunately, he took his own life in October leaving this tragedy an open-ended mystery.
Since Gabby’s passing, her parents started the Gabby Petito Foundation.
Gabby’s parents continue to fight for their daughter
“No one should have to find their child on their own. We are creating this foundation to give resources and guidance on bringing their children home,” Joe wrote on Twitter when he announced the foundation.
In November, Gabby’s parents gave their first live interview with WFLA NOW and spoke about their plans for the foundation.
“For me, preventing this from happening to someone else, if we can try and make that change, that’s justice for me. It’s helping others,” Nicole said. “It’s about the changes we can make. We can’t change the past, but we can change the future.”
Gabby’s mother, father and stepmother discussed how they’re working to create a type of AMBER Alert for domestic violence victims and missing persons for people aged 18-64 years old.
Joe expressed this type of alert should be on a national level, but currently isn’t.
Nichole added that if a family knows their loved one is missing, the alert can help people start looking for them immediately.
In fact, Joe Petito, Gabby’s father, has gotten involved in helping bring home two missing Long Island teens who went missing earlier this month.
On December 13, he tweeted, “These are just kids. #VincentAbolafia, #KaileightCatalano needs to be found. Please, remember what they look like. Share this if you can. If you see them, please call SCPD.”
