New report details mistakes made by Moab, Utah police during call in Petito, Laundrie


Utah State Police have released the results of an independent investigation into how Moad, Wyoming police handled a possible domestic violence case between Brian Laundrie and Gabby Petito in August 2021.

One of the most important findings from the 102-page report is that the Moab City Police Department failed to cite Gabby Petito in the family case with Brian Laundrie.

The report from an independent agency said officers responded to the call, “A number of unintentional mistakes were made.” The report says that it is hard to blame the incident other than who is directly responsible for Gabby Petito’s death.

The report also recommends improvements to both the training and policy of the Moab police department, providing additional training on domestic violence.

Investigators are recommending probation for both officers. If they are already on probation, they suggest an extension.

Gabby Petitio went missing in September 2021 after her mother had not heard from her since August. Petito was found dead later that month near Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming.


Brian Laundrie became a person of interest in her death, and a warrant was issued for the unauthorized use of Petito’s debit card after her death.

Laundrie was reported missing from his family home in North Port in September. His remains were found in the Carlton Reserve. Police say he died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
