A Florida judge recently approved Petito and Schmidt’s request Steven Bertolino for their lawsuit against the Laundries.

The lawsuit was filed earlier this year by Gabby’s parents, who claim the Laundries knew more about her death and that their son Brian had killed her.
The lawsuit also alleges that the Laundries knew where they hid his body but refused to talk and helped Brian flee the country.
Bertolino’s September 14, 2021 statement on behalf of the Laundries is vital evidence at the heart of Petito and Schmidt’s lawsuit.

The statement he shared expressed hope that Gabby would be found alive and reunited with her parents.
The statement came five days before Gabby’s body was found in Grand Teton National Park.
Petito and Schmidt’s attorney, Pat Reilly, said WFLA“We believe that when the statement was issued on September 14, 2021, Laundries and Steven Bertolino knew that Gabby Petito passed away, and under the circumstances the statement was callous, cold-hearted and outrageous.”
Gabby’s parents ‘finally get justice’
Gabby’s parents are “delighted” that Judge Danielle Brewer approved their request to amend their lawsuit to add Bertolino.
Grayling WFLAReilly said: “They’ve been through a lot. They had to listen to Mr. Bertolino make many statements on behalf of the family, sometimes hurtful statements. And so they believe that by involving Mr. Bertolino, they will finally get justice for what happened.”
In an interview Fox News Digital, Reilly said, “The decision was not unexpected. This incident, like all others, will eventually be resolved. This or that way.”
In a series of notebook entries, Laundrie admitted to killing his fiancée.
The killer also sent text messages between his and Petito’s cell phones in the days after he was strangled to death.
It was an attempt to “deceive law enforcement into the impression that Ms. Petito was still alive,” according to the Denver FBI’s latest investigative update.
“All logical investigative steps in this case have been closed,” said Michael Schneider, special agent in charge of the FBI’s Denver division. “The investigation has not identified anyone other than Brian Laundrie directly involved in the tragic death of Gabby Petito. The FBI’s primary goal in the investigation was to bring justice to Gabby and her family. The public’s role in this endeavor was invaluable, as the investigation was covered by the world’s media. On behalf of the FBI, I want to express my deepest appreciation to the public for the thousands of tips received during this investigation, and to our local, state and federal law enforcement partners for their work during this investigation.”
The FBI opened an investigation into Gabby’s disappearance on September 12, 2021, after her mother reported her missing on September 11.
On September 19, 2021, Gabby’s remains were found at the Spread Creek Dispersed Camping Area in Wyoming.
According to the investigative report, “Ms. Petito was found about three weeks after her last known communication.
The Teton County Coroner’s Office concluded that Gabby died of blunt force trauma to the head and neck caused by manual strangulation.
