PETITION is calling for an investigation into the North Harbor Police as they handle the Gabby Petito-Brian Laundrie case.
Released a month ago, appeal has nearly 5,000 signatures.
Started by Gabby’s Safe Haven 2.0, the petition is intended to reach the Governor of Florida Ron DeSantis.
“In particular, the handling of the case by the North Harbor Police Department, North Port City Public Information Director Josh Taylor, and North Harbor Police Chief Todd Garrison.
“The inconsistency the public received in this case was beyond puzzling, even before Gabby Petito was officially declared missing.
“The North Harbor Police Department was incompetent in handling both Gabby Petito’s missing person case and Brian Laundrie’s missing person case.
“Millions of taxpayer dollars have been spent on this investigation over a period of over a month with little or no result.
“Within a day of the search area being reopened to the public, it was the parents of the person interested who discovered their son’s belongings.
“The handling of the evidence and the chain of custody is highly questionable,” it stated.
“Even after Brian Laundrie’s remains were discovered and confirmed, the search area was reopened to the public again within 24 hours of discovery.
“The whole investigation is a testament to the complete incompetence of the North Harbor Police Department and should be thoroughly investigated internally.
For the petition group, Gabby’s Safe Haven 2.0 has a Facebook Groups with nearly 700 members.
One of the group’s rules reads: “We’re all here for one reason only, justice for Gabby.”
By group Change.org Profile, their mission is “Helping people who have been or are experiencing situations of domestic violence.”
Laundrie, 23, and his 22-year-old fiance, Petito, were walking down the street when she mysteriously disappeared, leading to the case attracting national attention.
Her body was found in Wyoming on September 19, after Laundrie returned home alone to Florida on September 1.
Her death was treated as a homicide by strangulation.
Laundrie’s body was also found in a Florida park last month.
On November 23, Laundrie died by suicide of a head wound.
It is not yet clear what might happen next in this case, as there are some reports that Laundrie’s Parents may face charges of tampering with evidence.
Laundry know a gun is missing from their collection when their son went missing, according to reports.
While Laundrie has not been charged, nor is it made public, as a suspect in connection with Petito’s death, he is the only one who cares in case.
