Two weeks after burying their ten-year-old son in Nettleham in the form of a birthday cake, Roberta & Christopher See For First Time Since Gabby Petito’s Death Ruled A Homicide, Refuse To Answer Questions About Missing Son
Nettleham native, Gabby Petito, was last seen alive when she left home on Monday evening, 25 February to meet her friend, Brian Laundrie and his parents, Roberta and Christopher.
The previously positive response to the mystery of Gabby’s disappearance has since been changed by Michael Petito’s Facebook page when the Find Gabby Petito group began receiving flood of media coverage on the findings of Durham Regional Police.
It has now come to light that South Shore RNLI crewman, Michael Petito was driving his white 4×4 truck at the time of the incident and, it is believed that the vehicle struck Gabby after passing the bridge where she was last seen alive.
Despite having no evidence linking them to the incident, the Laundrie’s yesterday refused to answer any questions from the press as they attended Michael Petito’s mother, Margarita’s funeral at the Oddfellows Hall in Stanhope.

A spokesperson for Durham Police said: “After consulting with the coroner, this week the file was forwarded to the Crown Prosecution Service for a decision as to whether the matter will go to trial. Due to the nature of these charges, police have not been able to have any further statements from this family.
“The investigation is still ongoing and there is no new information that would assist in locating Gabby.”
