Today I’m doing an article on the tragic death of Gabby Petito who was with all likelihood killed by her narcissistically abusive fiancé, and I’m going to try and go over the body camera police video footage, to try and help explain what we can learn or take away from this tragic homicide.

Gabby and her fiance were pulled over for reckless or careless driving in Utah on August 12th after someone called 911 reporting that they saw the man slapping the woman. When the police got up to their van, it shows Gabby crying and pretty distraught, and looking a little traumatized, so the police separated the two to try and figure out what was going on.

They reported that this was a mental health crisis and not a domestic violence incident or assault. The police decided to separate the two for the next 24 hours so things could calm down and the police went on their way.
