Fox Nation host and former Fulton County, Georgia, special prosecutor Nancy Grace offered her analysis on ‘America Reports’ Tuesday of Wyoming authorities’ declaration that the cause of death for Gabrielle Petito – a Long Island woman who was on a trip through the Mountain West with her boyfriend – was homicide caused by strangulation.
Brent Blue, Teton County Coroner, announced Tuesday that Petito’s remains were left to decompose in the wilderness for several week. However more details about the case were kept secret by Wyoming law.
Grace stated, “It is significant that we learn the cause of death. The fact that it’s a strangulation to my mind makes Brian Laundrie even more suspect.”
Laundrie, officially considered a person in interest in the case, hasn’t been seen since September 13th. However, a hiker who was in the Smokies said that he saw Laundrie near Interstate 40 in Tennessee between North Carolina and North Carolina.
According to the witness, the man claimed that he wanted to visit his girlfriend in California and told him that he needed to travel to California. However, despite his request to take I-40 to Barstow, he refused to listen to his suggestion.
Grace said that experts had predicted Petito would die from blunt force trauma or strangulation.
She said, “It’s known as a sweetheart murder.” In other words, it is when the perpetrator gets close to the victim and becomes intimate. This is a common theme in domestic homicides.

It’s a clear indication of a crime committed in passion. It was either strangulation, supplication, or blunt force trauma during a fit or rage. We find Gabby alone in the wild with Brian Laundrie. Many people just said to her that she should reconsider the relationship and we can tell this is what she was thinking.
Grace stated that a woman who is contemplating breaking up with her boyfriend can be “statistically” the most dangerous moment for her.
“I’m really … relieved that they could even determine a cause of death due to potential discomposure of Gabby Petito,’ Grace concluded.
