Gabby Petito’s final text to her mother may have been a cry for help, online detectives have claimed.
Petito’s mother, Nichole schmidt, he received a strange message from his daughter on August 27 that said, “Can you help Stan? I keep getting his voicemails and missed calls.”
Stan is Petito’s grandfather’s name, but Schmidt told authorities that his daughter never called him “Stan.”
in a Facebook group dedicated to Petito’s disappearance, some speculated that Stan is actually an acronym that stands for “Send The Authorities Now.”
“What if she was scared? [but] He didn’t want Brian to get mad, so he added, ‘I keep getting his voicemails and missed calls,’ just to show him that I wasn’t asking for help. “
Others alleged that Stan actually refers to 2000 Eminem song in which a man named Stan kidnaps and kills his pregnant wife.
The hypotheses emerged a few days after an autopsy confirmed that Petito died of strangulation.
“The Teton County Coroner’s Office is [issuing] the following verdict: in the death of Gabrielle Venora Petito, we found that the cause of death is death by strangulation and the manner of death is death by homicide, ”said Teton County Coroner Dr. Brent Blue said during a conference release on Tuesday, October 12.
While Dr. Blue could not pinpoint the exact date of Petito’s death, he explained that it may have been “three to four weeks from the moment the body was found.” He was also unable to comment on the outcome of the toxicology report, but confirmed that “Gabby was not pregnant” at the time of her death.
Petito and her promised, Brian laundrieHe had been traveling in a white 2012 Ford Transit pickup from New York to the west coast of the United States, stopping to visit national parks along the way. Petito was last seen in Wyoming’s Grand Teton National Park after leaving a Salt Lake City hotel on August 24.
The 22-year-old Long Island native was reported missing on September 11. Laundrie, who is named a person of interest in Petito’s disappearance, has refused to speak to the police and is now missing.
Petito’s best friend, Rose davis, saying The Daily Mail that Laundrie supposedly has “these jealousy issues … She struggles with what Gabby called these ‘episodes,’ where she heard things and heard voices and didn’t sleep.”
“He was always worried that she would leave him. It was a constant thing to try to make us stop hanging out, ”he explained in more detail. “He demanded that she be home for dinner, he often shortened our time. She demanded that I pick her up at my house, even when I had a car and offered to drive me. “
“This is all so heartbreaking,” Rose added. “It’s so crazy and surreal.”
