Gabby Petito’s legacy continues.
The 22-year-old’s life was tragically cut short in August 2021 at the hands of her fiancé Brian Laundrie.
Her family has been remembering the good times with their daughter ahead of the one-year anniversary of her death next month.

Gabby’s parents recently scored a massive victory in court against Chris and Roberta Laundrie.
Earlier this month, the Laundrie’s were DENIED a dismissed lawsuit brought upon them by Joseph Petito and Nichole Schmidt.
Judge Hunter W. Carroll DENIED Brian Laundrie’s parents, Chris and Roberta Laundrie, a trial dismissal.
The Petito-Schmidt families are suing the Laundrie family for knowing more about their daughter’s death and assisted Brian in trying to flee the country.
She was reported missing on September 11, 2021 and her remains were found in a Wyoming National Park on September 19.
Her death was ruled a homicide by Teton County Coroner Dr. Brent Blue, and was reported to have been dead for weeks. Her death is suspected to have happened in August.
