Gabby Petito’s mother, Nichole Schmidt, turned on Hulu to discover a 20/20 documentary special about her daughter was a recommended watch.
Schmidt was heartbroken to see that, but it also served as a call to action.
Petito’s mom shared this news on Twitter, and motivated her followers by saying the Gabby Petito Foundation will work hard to help others.
The 20/20 special aired on ABC – the reporting detailed why the world watched Petito’s case so closely.
Stories are also included from those who met Petito and Brian Laundrie on their expedition before her death.
The special mentioned that Petito’s case showed the need to give more attention to the murders of people of color.
Joseph Petito, Gabby’s father, took that lesson and has been helping missing women of color.
Joseph posted about a missing woman a few days ago, and was able to share that she was found.
Petito’s family is extremely focused on providing resources to organizations that find missing persons, and preventing domestic violence.
