Now we know Brian Laundry is dead. But the matter is not over yet. For Gabby Petito’s parents, it will never end – because with or without answers, they will never get their beloved daughter back.
While we’re sure that news of the identity of Brian’s remains is affecting people differently, we’re most interested in the reaction of Gabby’s family.
His father Joseph Petito, mother Nicole Schmidt, as well as stepmother Tara Pettito and stepfather Jim Schmidt, have been active, courageous and empathetic during this nightmare. So now that they find out that Brian is gone, what do they have to say?
His lawyer issued a statement saying:
“They are grieving the loss of their beautiful daughter. Gabby’s family will make a statement at the appropriate time and when they are emotionally ready.”
Fair enough, and in keeping with the constant message he always stood behind – he loved his daughter dearly.
We envision that eventually we will get a longer, more in-depth response to disturbing news. Hopefully by that time we will have more answers than just the finality of this news.
