Friends, Family Flock on Long Island to mourn Gabby Petito

Holbrook, NY mourned the death of 22-year-old Gabby Petito on Sunday, whose death on a cross-country trip caused a stir for her boyfriend.

Among those who gathered in Holbrook, about five miles east of New York City, were family members, friends, colleagues and people who were touched by Petito’s story even though they did not know him.

“He was a beautiful soul; he was full of life, always smiling” He gave you love. He was just a beautiful soul. He touched everyone like now. ”

Two fire trucks were parked on either side of the funeral home, each with its escalators extended, and firefighters were seen entering a line building. Across the street, a chain link fence was adorned with posters with pictures of Petito and messages such as “She has touched the world.”

Petito was missing on Sept. 11. He and Brian Laundry went to West Park when his parents did not respond to calls and texts for several days.

His body was found last Sunday in a remote area of ​​northwestern Wyoming. Laundry and Petito grew up on Long Island but moved to Florida in recent years.

Lexi Ruiz recalls working with Petigo at a cafe in nearby Patchug that Ruiz operated.

“He’s always willing to help someone else,” Ruiz said. “She was just such a light. The room lit up wherever he went. It’s nice to see so many people get together and support her family. ”

Inside the funeral home, dozens of floral arrangements and pictures of Petito’s childhood lined the walls, some capturing his travels. A bouquet sent from Norwich, Connecticut reads, “I don’t know you but your story broke me.”

The mourners were greeted with a placard, a poem entitled “Let It Be”, which began with the line, “Do not grieve for me because I am free.”

Petito’s death has been classified as a homicide, meaning he was killed by someone else, but medical examiners in Wyoming did not reveal how he died in order to obtain an autopsy.

The couple posted online about being converted to their camper in a white Ford transit van. They got involved in a physical altercation on Aug. 12 in Mota, Utah, prompting police to stop for a possible domestic violence case. Eventually, the police there decided to separate the quarreling couple for the night. But no charges were filed, and no serious injuries were reported.

Investigators are searching for Laundry in Florida and searching her parents’ home in North Port, about five miles south of Sarasota.

On Thursday, federal officials in Wyoming accused Laundry of unauthorized use of a debit card, alleging that Petito went missing while making unauthorized withdrawals or charging more than 1,000 1,000 using a Capital One bank card and someone else’s personal identity card. They did not say who the card was.
