Dr Oz questioned Gabby's parents and stepparents if they noticed any possible signs of abuse from Gabby's fiancé.

During the Dr Oz episode, which aired Tuesday, Mr Petito told the TV personality that Brian had ...all the hallmarks of an abusive relationship,... according to the Independent.

As Gabby's dad likened Brian to a typical domestic abuser, he said: ...The way the abuser works is to shame the victim.

Mr Petito added that when abuse victims are shamed, they're less likely to ...go out and tell you what’s going on....

...And continually shame the victim to where they start believing that shame is theirs to hold....

But ultimately, the family said they didn't see any ...red flags... in their daughter's relationship with Brian.

As Gabby's family continues to cope with their loss

...HER FINAL RESTING PLACE'

Gabby's family traveled to Wyoming where her remains were found near Grand Teton National Park on September 19.

...It almost felt like her home. Her final resting place,... said Mrs. Schmidt told Dr Oz.

...Such a beautiful, peaceful place to be. And we went there to bring her home and that’s what we did....

An autopsy showed that Gabby died via strangulation. Mrs. Schmidt said she knew her daughter was ...gone... when she learned that the van the couple was traveling in came back to Florida.

Following her death, on October 3, 2021, Gabby's family announced that they had launched the Gabby Petito Foundation in honor of their late daughter.

...The Gabby Petito Foundation is up and running!... a post on the foundation's Twitter page read. ...We have a lot of work to do, website is just starting out so be patient with us, we will get there. Thank you for all the support and love!...

The family then repeated a phrase coined by Gabby's dad in an Instagram post after her remains were found: ...She touched the world....

BRIAN'S AUTOPSY MYSTERY

Brian Laundrie was last seen by his family on September 13, days before Gabby's remains were eventually found. He wasn't reported missing until days later.

After a month's long search, Laundrie's remains were found on October 21, 2021, at Myakkahatchee Creek Environmental Park.

The FBI confirmed that Laundrie's bones were found, leading to much speculation about how the 23-year-old died.

The location where Brian's remains were eventually found had previously been submerged in four feet of storm waters for more than a month.

The advanced state of decomposition that his remains were found in means that they were likely feasted on by gators and other local wildlife, as five weeks wouldn't be long enough for a body to decompose that much naturally, experts told The Sun.

A cause, manner, and date of death have not yet been determined for Brian after an autopsy came back inconclusive late last month.
