Global News published this video item, entitled “Police bodycam footage shows Gabby Petito, fiancé pulled over before her disappearance” – below is their description.

Utah police have released body camera footage from Aug. 12 that shows Gabby Petito and her fiancé Brian Laundrie talking to officers after being pulled over, a month before she was reported missing.

The 22-year-old woman was declared missing by her family on Sept. 11. Laundrie is refusing to speak to police about what happened after he returned home early from their months-long road trip across the United States, in an adventure that they had documented on Instagram and YouTube.

In the video, police were responding to a domestic abuse call when they pulled over the couple’s white van outside Arches National Park in Moab. Petito appeared distressed and emotional, telling officers that she and Laundrie had a fight that morning.

Petito admits to officers that she slapped Laundrie repeatedly as well as caused him to be distracted while driving. Laundrie later tells officers he locked her outside of the car at one point because she had, in his opinion, become too agitated.

Police in North Port, Fla., have confiscated the couple’s van and are treating Laundrie as a person of interest in the case. The search is still ongoing for Petito.

Viewer note: The hour-long bodycam footage released by police was condensed for brevity.

  • In This Story: Utah

    Utah is a state in the western United States.

    The territory of modern Utah has been inhabited by various indigenous groups for thousands of years, including the ancient Puebloans, the Navajo, and the Ute. The Spanish were the first Europeans to arrive in the mid-16th century, though the region’s difficult geography and climate made it a peripheral part of New Spain and later Mexico.

    Disputes between the dominant Mormon community and the federal government delayed Utah’s admission as a state; only after the outlawing of polygamy was it admitted as the 45th, in 1896.

    A little more than half of all Utahns are Mormons, the vast majority of whom are members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church), which has its world headquarters in Salt Lake City. Utah is the only state where most of the population belongs to a single church. The LDS Church greatly influences Utahn culture, politics, and daily life, though since the 1990s the state has become more religiously diverse as well as secular.

    The state has a highly diversified economy, with major sectors including transportation, education, information technology and research, government services, and mining and a major tourist destination for outdoor recreation.

    A 2012 Gallup national survey found Utah overall to be the “best state to live in the future” based on 13 forward-looking measurements including various economic, lifestyle, and health-related outlook metrics.
