Gabby Petito Case: New Body Cam Video Provides Clues to Brian Laundrie Dispute
In that footage, Gabby tearfully admits to slapping Brian. When an officer asks her whether the man hit her, muffled audio makes it difficult to hear her answer in full. On Friday, Oct. 1, the department released a new body cam video, in which the sound is clearer.
The video, posted on Fox News, shows an officer asking Gabby if Brian hit her. She responds, “I guess, I guess, yeah, but I hit him first…he like, grabbed my face, like, I guess…He didn’t like, hit me in the face. He didn’t, like, punch me in the face or anything.”
She continues, in more audio made clear in the new video, “He, like, grabbed me with his nail, and I guess that’s why it looks…definitely I was cut right here, [points to cheek] because I can feel it. When I touch it, it burns.”
The 911 caller had told police that “the gentleman was slapping the girl,” adding, “They ran up and down the sidewalk. He proceeded to hit her, hopped in the car and they drove off.”
