In the US-Naturreservat
When searching for KP Petito’s friend: Police found human remains and personal belongings
The mystery of KP Petito’s death continues to plague the United States. One of those expecting answers was her boyfriend. But that hope may now be shattered – because investigators have made another horrific discovery.
New twist in the murder case of Gabby Petito: Investigators have found human remains in the search for a 22-year-old friend. FBI investigator Michael McPherson said a natural reserve was discovered Wednesday in Florida, USA. Police have been searching for the 23-year-old for several weeks and he is thought to be the “interested person” by authorities in the Pettito case. According to McPherson, investigators found the teenager’s laptop and a bag. All of these were in an area that was under water until recently.
The Petito case has caused a stir internationally
Gabby Petito, 22, did not return from a trip through the United States with her boyfriend this summer. The case is gaining attention in the United States and internationally – not because the Florida couple shared many pictures and videos of their trip on social media. After an intensive search, Pettito’s body was finally found in Wyoming in September. Petito had traveled there as part of his American road trip. According to the coroner, the young woman was strangled.
Pettito’s friend had just returned from a trip with a 22-year-old man in September. Shortly afterwards, his parents reported him missing. Police have been searching for the man ever since. Authorities issued an arrest warrant against him in late September for bank fraud. “I know you have a lot of questions, but we don’t have the answers to all of them,” said analyst McPherson. “The task force is on site and examines that area using all available forensic evidence.” It will probably take several days.
U.S. media have reported that 23-year-old parents previously met with investigators at the Miyakhatzi Creek Ecological Park to locate their son. After a brief search of the path frequented by Pettito’s friend, some items were initially found, citing the family’s attorney. The area was later searched by sniffer dogs. The park is close to the northern port city, with walking paths and a camping area. The park is connected to the Carlton Reserve, which is a large natural reserve that was part of the explorers’ primary search.
Review of the report
Pettito and her boyfriend released pictures and videos from the van that were converted during their trip. After that the two were always happy. However, the picture taken by the body camera of a police officer made a completely different look than these pictures. In mid-August, police were called to the couple’s vehicle in connection with a domestic violence case. The media reported that the caller had complained to the police that a man had beaten a woman. In the video you can see Pettito dissolving and crying. In it, she claims to have slapped her boyfriend.
Over the past few weeks, there has been repeated criticism of the scope and seriousness of Pettito’s coverage of the disappearance on American media and social networks. There was talk of a so-called missing white woman syndrome. This refers to the over-reporting of missing young white women. After the review, some media outlets began to report briefly on other cases related to the disappearances. About 90,000 reports of disappearances across the country were considered active by the end of last year, according to officials. These cases did not receive as much attention as Pettito.
