Conspiracy theorists on social media are on a roll vis-a-vis Long Island native Gabby Petito's puzzling disappearance during a cross country trip to Oregon with her boyfriend, Brian Laundrie. Gabby Petito, who was constantly posing pictures on social media throughout her trip, stopped posting on August 25 and also lost contact with her family. Petito's last text to her mom was on August 30, which her mom believes was NOT sent by her. Brian, on the other hand, returned to Florida without Petito on September 1, in the van the couple was using, immediately lawyered up and refused to speak to the authorities about Petito's whereabouts. Brian Laundrie's 'remain in background' stance while a full-fledged investigation is going on has raised eyebrows as he's now named 'a person of interest' in the missing case.

Considering inexplicable circumstances leading to Petito's disappearance, be it the Utah couple, 24-year-old Kylen ‘Ky’ Carrol Schulte and 38-year-old Crystal Michelle Turner's double murder around the same time when Petito and Laundrie were in Moab, or Moab police reporting an 'incident" involving Petito and her boyfriend; social media sleuths have come up with theories on 'what could have gone down in Gabby Petito's disappearance'. Have a look at some of these.

'The boyfriend did it'

The most common and widely speculated theory is that Gabby Petito's boyfriend, Brian Laundrie killed her or 'tied her up and threw her', which, the social media surmises is the reason Brian is not cooperating in the search. Raising questions on Brian Laundrie's 'silence', people posted tweets like, "So if your significant other was missing, you would just go home and do nothing? Bullshit. He definitely did it. #GabbyPetito" One person wrote, "i’m sorry but how does your fiancé go missing and you just casually go back home and scratch your balls like nothing happened? Brian 100% did this."

Another tweeted, "OBVIOUSLY the fiancé killed her. that’s a given. if not killed her, then tied her up and threw her down a hole or something and left." One tweet read, "Boyfriend not cooperating is a huge red flag. Imagine just for one second you were the last person to see your loved one and they were missing, and you refused to say where you last saw them. That’s not normal. That’s not normal AT ALL. #GabbyPetito" Another person said, "Bro...you literally have to be born with a cold, loveless, evil, disgusting heart to not even say where you left her, when you know the whole world knows that you know! There is no excuse for his silence! He is guilty 10000% #GabbyPetito"



 



 



 



 



 

 

'Brian Laundrie and Gabby Petito are faking it to become famous'

People are not ruling anything out in this 'bizarre' case. Conjectures of Gabby Petito faking the whole thing with her boyfriend, Brian Laundrie also floated on social media. "Listen i hope she’s ok. But something about all this feels very staged. Like something a blogger would do to get attention. Maybe they’re working together to make this national news. He’s not talking bc maybe she’s ok and will turn up eventually. By then they will be famous, " one person wrote on Twitter. Another tweet also read, "I must admit that I thought the same thing. Like she will come back just fine, and be like oh we needed a break from each other. They are getting subs and views now like crazy. But that would be a terrible thing to do all around especially to their family."



 



 

 

'Brian Laundrie killed the Utah couple and then Gabby Petito because she was a witness'

Analysing the 'Moab couple double murder' around the same time when Petito and Laundrie were in Moab, along with the "incident" reported by Moab police involving Petito and Laundrie, some people also theorized that Laundrie killed the couple, and then Petito because she was a witness or vice versa. One user explained the whole theory in detail and tweeted, "but why? that was the supposed love of his life. i think that he had been abusive behind the scenes the entire time. they had a domestic disturbance call on them august 12th when they were in Moab, Utah. A couple, Kylen and Crystal were also camping in Moab, Utah. Kylen’s aunt told reporters that a creepy guy was at their campsite. Investigators were informed that Kylen had mentioned to her friends that if something happened to them, that they were murdered. Kylen had continued by saying there was a ‘creepy man’ around their camp and they had been intimidated by him. I think Brian was that creepy male. i think A. he snapped on their trip, killed gabby, then the couple. or B. killed the couple and then ended up killing gabby because she was threatening to turn him in."
