It is not any secret at this level that the seemingly good relationship between Gabby Petito and Brian Laundrie was something however a dream, as mates and extra have come ahead to explain their “toxic” romance for the reason that starting of the investigation.
Recently, nonetheless, much more chilling particulars have been revealed by Gabby’s greatest pal, who claims he skilled “episodes” during which he would hear voices and lose sleep.
In an interview with DailyMail.com, Rose Davis described the 23-year-old particular person of curiosity as usually having controlling and manipulative moments, recalling an occasion during which he stole his fiancée’s ID to cease her from going out to bars. Ugh. And that controlling nonsense wasn’t even near the most important pink flag:
“He’s got these jealousy issues, and he struggles from what Gabby called these ‘episodes,’ where he would hear things and hear voices and wouldn’t sleep.”
That was apparently simply as scary for Gabby because it sounds. These moments have been typically so unhealthy that Gabby would disguise out at her pal’s house to get away:
“Gabby had to stay at my house a bunch of times because she just needed a breather and didn’t want to go home to him.”
Okay, this actually makes us have a look at the bodycam footage of police pulling them over for a possible home violence dispute in an entire different gentle. How can we not surprise if Brian was having one in every of his “episodes” that day? Or the day she disappeared??
While the pair by no means fought in entrance of Rose, she says she at all times knew after that they had argued. In the primary 12 months of their friendship, she claimed that Gabby spent someplace between 7 and 10 nights at her home after they got here to blows:
“I do believe that their relationship as they kept going on was getting more problematic. It just seemed like there was more and more arguments. Everything she did, I feel like he thought was wrong.”
But that’s not all. When the 2 mates tried sharing their areas on their telephones simply “in case we got lost,” Laundrie had compelled Gabby to finish it. Very suspicious looking back!
His controlling nature was to the purpose the place Rose believed he turned jealous of her and Gabby’s friendship and tried to maintain them away:
“Brian has a jealousy issue. I’m her only friend in Florida to my knowledge and that’s not because she can’t make friends, he just didn’t want her to have friends. He was always worried she was going to leave him. It was a constant thing to try to get us to stop hanging out.”
He “didn’t want her to have friends”?? Oh man, if that isn’t an emotionally abusive relationship, we don’t know what’s.
The final time Davis spoke to Petito was in early August once they planned on meeting up in Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming for her birthday on August 29. However, she by no means went after by no means listening to again from Gabby. And when Brian returned house from their cross-country street journey on September 1 with out Gabby, and he or she was later reported lacking by her mom, Davis couldn’t assist however surprise if he had snapped:
“When I saw that Brian was back from the trip, that was the first thing that popped into my mind — that Brian had one of his episodes — and I was just hoping he didn’t have a snapping moment.”
And as everyone knows, issues got here to a heartbreaking conclusion. Gabby’s physique was present in Wyoming, and her death was later ruled a homicide. Authorities are additionally trying to find Laundrie, who went lacking final week and has been named an individual of curiosity within the case.
