Gabby Petito’s Family Announces Lawsuit Against the Moab Police Department

It was announced yesterday that Gabby Petito’s parents are seeking $50 million in a wrongful death lawsuit against the Moab Police Department. The family alleges that Moab Officers Eric Pratt and Daniel Robbins failed to properly handle a 911 call in which a witness claimed he saw Brian Laundrie hitting Petito and trying to steal her phone and drive off without her in the middle of downtown. About two weeks after that encounter, Laundrie was believed to have bludgeoned Petito and strangled her to death in the Bridger-Teton National Forest Campground in Wyoming.
