Gabby Petito’s family announced a $50 million wrongful death lawsuit against Utah police on Monday, alleging that cops failed to recognize their daughter was in a life-threatening situation last year when officers investigated a fight between her and her boyfriend.
The notice of claim alleges that officers in the tourist town of Moab failed to recognize that the 22-year-old was a victim of domestic violence at the hands of her boyfriend, Brian Laundrie, when they encountered the couple on Aug. 12, 2021.
The officers allowed the couple to leave after requiring them to spend a night apart.
The fight happened just weeks before Laundrie killed Petito as they continued on a cross-country van trip.
