Petito Vs Laundrie

Joseph Petito and Nichole Schmidt, the parents of Gabby Petito, have filed a lawsuit, claiming that Brian Laundrie's parents, Christopher and Roberta Laundrie, went on vacation with their son while knowing he had murdered 22-year-old Petito and refusing to disclose the location of her remains. The lawsuit also claims Laundrie's parents knew all along their son murdered Petito and sought to help him flee the country. The five allegations listed in the lawsuit are: a). An allegation of failing to inform Gabby's parents she was deceased; b) An allegation of failing to inform Gabby's parents of the location of her body; c) Taking a family vacation while allegedly knowing Gabby's parents were desperately seeking her whereabouts; d) An allegation of blocking access to their phones and Facebook page; e) Issuing a statement of 'hope' while allegedly knowing Gabby was deceased. The lawsuit has 4 counts: Count 1: Joseph Petito v. Christopher Laundrie; Count 2: Joseph Petito v. Roberta Laundrie; Count 3: Nichole Schmidt v. Christopher Laundrie; Count 4: Nichole Schmidt v. Roberta Laundrie. Steven Bertolino, the long-time lawyer for the Laundries in New York, has called the allegations 'baseless'.
