This month marks the one-year-anniversary since the disappearance and tragic death of Gabby Petito.

She was on a cross-country road trip with her fiancé, Brian Laundrie, at the time of her death.

Her mother, Nichole Schmidt, reported her missing on September 11, 2021.  

Days before she was reported missing, Laundrie returned to his parent’s North Port, FL. home in Gabby’s white conversion van without his fiancé. 

Sadly, her remains were discovered in Wyoming’s Bridger-Teton National Forest on September 19. 

he was declared to have been dead for at least three weeks prior to the discovery. 

Gabby’s death was ruled a homicide by manual strangulation. 

Laundrie admitted to killing his loved one in a journal entry. He said it was the “merciful” thing to do. 

Now, exactly one year after Gabby’s tragic passing, a new missing person case is making headlines.

A 16-year-old female named Kiely Rodni has been missing since August 6.
