GRAND TETON NATIONAL PARK, WYOMING: With Gabby Petito confirmed dead and her fiance Brian Laundrie still missing, the FBI has launched an elaborate search operation for the 23-year-old man, who has been declared a 'person of interest' in the case. Meanwhile, the shocking case has created a stir among social media users, who are floating bizarre theories around the young couple. Some evidence and clues found by internet sleuths have proven to be crucial in tracking the progress of the investigation.

Now, netizens have speculated that Gabby Petito might have been pregnant at the time of her death. While the autopsy results are yet to confirm the exact manner of her death, online evidence found on her social media profiles has prompted many followers to assert that she was expecting a child with Brian Laundrie, which might have led to a dispute between the couple. 


Followers have found links between Gabby Petito's Pinterest account and her final texts to the family, as well as sightings of a possible sonogram report near their transit van — all of which indicate the possibility of a pregnancy. 

Gabby Petito and Brian Laundrie shared a common Pinterest board with the title 'Oh Baby', which was a part of a larger board called 'Life Goals'. The theme of 'Oh Baby' centered around anything and everything related to a newborn baby. They had saved photos of baby clothes, cribs, and other baby products as well as photos of pregnant mothers and toddlers. Aside from the couple, the board was accessible by Brian Laundrie's mother Roberta, and perhaps Petito's mother Nicole. 

Another theory that has surfaced is based on a possible sonogram photo found near their 2012 Ford Transit Van. The sonogram photos can be spotted in one of their YouTube vlog footages, lying on the side of the road on top of a log. When zoomed in, the series of photos appear to be from an abdominal ultrasonogram, which is generally done in case of pregnancy.

In addition, shortly before her death, Gabby Petito had posted a photo on her Instagram account where she was reading the book 'Lullaby' by Chuck Palahniuk. The book is an eerie thriller about a man who unintentionally kills his wife and their infant child by singing them a lullaby. Then he sets out on a cross-country road trip with other characters who try to abuse the song's murderous power. The uncanny similarities between the storyline and the circumstance of Gabby Petito and Brian Laundrie's case have not escaped the keen eyes of the internet sleuths.

Some have even speculated that Gabby's odd last text about 'Stan' might have been a code word to alert her parents. While Petito's mother Nicole has shared that Stan was the name of Gabby's grandfather, some users reminded that Stan is also a song by Eminem who shuts out his pregnant girlfriend.

"My theory is #GabbyPetito was pregnant with #BrianLaundrie’s child. That he murdered her because of it, I am basing this off of her Pinterest. #justiceforgabbypetito," a Twitter user said. 

Another person suggested, "@ChrisCuomo There's a reason why Gabby Petito used "Stan". Stan is a code. It's also the name of a song by Eminem in which a woman is pregnant, and the baby daddy shuts her out and is obsessed with contacting others. Not every guy wants his parents to know if his GF is pregnant."

A third user tweeted, "Just informed by a very reliable source close to the investigation that #BrianLaurie demanded #GabbyPetito get an abortion when she told him she was 8-9 weeks pregnant. She tearfully refused and slapped him, unleashing his murderous strangulation rage against the diminutive GP."

"I got a #GabbyPetito theory. She told Brian she was pregnant, Brian didn't want the responsibility of supporting a child and so he killed her," wrote another.
