Petito went missing last month during a month-long cross-country van trip by the couple. Petito has recorded her experience on blogs, online videos and social media.
The couple left New York in July. On August 12, police encountered a couple after witnessing a bystander fighting at a convenience store in Moab, Utah. Body camera footage of the incident showed Petit to be emotional, and she and her fiancé told officers that they were “fighting all morning.”
Laundry also told police that the two were fighting. There were scratches on his face, he said, due to a physical conflict with Petit.
Police refused to prosecute in this case, and when the couple agreed to spend the night in different places, they only classified it as a “mental health crisis.” Police say Petit stayed in the van while Laundry was getting a hotel room.
Petito’s family says they last talked to her on August 25th. At that point, Petito said she was in Grand Teton National Park.
Laundry vaned back to his home in Florida on September 1st without petite. She was declared missing on September 11. Before he disappeared, Laundry refused to tell the police about the incident.
