Gabby Petito’s ashes scattered in Grand Teton National Park, dad suggests
A social media post from Gabby Petito’s father suggests his ashes may have been scattered throughout Grand Teton National Park, WABC-TV reports.
Friday, Petito’s father, Joseph Petito, posted on twitter an image of Wyoming Park showing a lake in the foreground and mountains in the background.
“I now know why you came here. #gabbypetito now has a great view. I love you and I miss you, ”the social media post read.
The post came two days after authorities announced the 22-year-old had died from strangulation. His body was found on September 19 in a camping area in the Bridger-Teton National Forest, along the park border, and had been there for several weeks.
Petito had traveled to the park with his fiance, Brian Laundrie, as part of a cross-country trip over the summer in an RV.
But Laundrie returned to her parents’ home in North Port, Florida on September 1 alone and refused to speak to police after Petito’s family reported her missing. Laundrie’s parents later reported their son missing, claiming he told them he was hiking in a nature reserve, but he has not been seen for a month.
A fundraising event for the Gabby Petito Foundation is scheduled for Sunday on Long Island, where Petito’s family lives, according to WCBS-TV. The rally would include a silent auction, 50/50 raffle, food, drink and live music from the Christian Cabrera Band.
The foundation is intended to help the families of those missing, WCBS-TV reports.
