Gabby Petito: Haunting songs on love and 'self-consumption' appeared on her Spotify
In a new twist to the head-scratching case of Gabby Petito, it has been reported that a series of haunting songs appeared on her Spotify account on September 1, which is ten days before she was reported missing by her mother. Also, August 30 was the day when her mom Nicole Schmidt received text messages from her daughter’s phone. However, it’s not been confirmed yet if Gabby sent those messages.
The 22-year-old woman’s last known location was at Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming in late August. She was on a cross-country trip with her boyfriend, Brian Laundrie, in a converted van. But Brian returned to his home on an unknown date without Gabby, making the case more complicated. He has also declined to directly help authorities in finding her and instead hired an attorney.

According to recent reports, the Spotify account of Gabby, which she apparently shared with Brian centered around love and heartache. One of those songs included Matt Berry’s: “Your woman is your angel, is your left side, is your whole life; easily the most beautiful thing in the world. She’ll soothe you She’ll accuse you She’ll confuse you She’ll lose you But always be the best friend you have in the world.” Other songs on the list were, “Take My Hand,” and “The Badger’s Wake”. Also, on August 30, a new list was created that was named, “Selfconsumption”.
Meanwhile, it has been said that Gabby’s stepdad, James Schmidt, has reached Wyoming to search for her alongside authorities. She has been described as a White woman of height nearly 5 feet, 5 inches, and weighing around 110 pounds. The young woman’s mother, Nicole, said: “He’s not leaving until he brings Gabby home. Now we have eyes, ears, feet on the ground… in both her home states and where she was last seen.”
The devastated family has also slammed the Laundrie family for not cooperating in the search efforts. They said, “The Schmidt and Petito family are going through the worst moments of their lives. Their beautiful 22-year-old daughter is missing and the one person that can help find Gabby refuses to help. Brian is refusing to tell Gabby's family where he last saw her. Brian is also refusing to explain why he left Gabby all alone and drove her van to Florida.”
They also requested the 23-year-old man to come forward and directly get involved in finding Gabby. The family said, “The Schmidt and Petito family beg the Laundrie family to not 'remain in the background' but to help find who Brian referred to as the love of his life. How does Brian stay in the background when he is the one person that knows where Gabby is located? The Schmidt and Petito family implore Brian to come forward and at least tell us if we are looking in the right area.”
Police named Brian Laundrie a person of interest on Wednesday, September 15.
