911 caller says he saw Brian Laundrie “slap” Gabby Petito


A recent 911 call made the news as investigators continue to investigate what happened to Gabby Petito.

Based on audio obtained by E! News, a man called 911 on August 12 to report a dispute between the 22-year-old influencer and her fiance Brian Laundry, 23 years. “We walked past and the gentleman slapped the girl in the face,” said the unknown caller.

When the dispatcher asked to clarify if he was “slapping her”, the caller replied, “Yes, then we stopped. They ran down the sidewalk. He started hitting her, jumped in the car and they left. “

After calling 911, the couple were arrested by police in Moab, Utah. Their interaction with officers was captured on body camera footage and has since been made public via the City of Moab Police Department.

In footage obtained by NBC News, Gabby could be seen wiping away tears as she told the responding officer that she had mental health issues. “I’m sorry,” she told authorities. “We just got into a fight this morning. Some personal issues.”
