SALT LAKE CITY — Newly revealed footage shows Gabby Petito shopping with Brian Laundrie at a Whole Foods Market in Wyoming just before her death.
The surveillance video, released by the Town of Jackson Police Department, shows Petito alive on Aug. 27, 2021, as the pair parks and walks inside the store.
They shop for about five minutes before returning to their van and leaving the store.
Petito was reported missing in September 2021 after she was seen traveling through Utah and Wyoming. Laundrie and Petito had been traveling across the country in a van since early July 2021.
The lawsuit alleges that Laundrie killed Petito later that day.
Petito’s body was found on Sept. 19 near Grand Teton National Park, and her disappearance and the subsequent search for Laundrie attracted national attention.
The FBI said Laundrie wrote he was responsible for Petito’s death in his notebook, and a Florida medical examiner confirmed Laundrie died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

FBI Denver Division Special Agent in Charge Michael Schneider said the bureau’s investigation did not identify any other individuals involved in Petito’s death.
A lawsuit filed by Petito’s parents that claims Laundrie told his parents he had killed Petito when he returned home alone from their trip will head to trial in 2023.
Lifetime announced plans to film a movie in Utah based on the case, saying “The Gabby Petito Story” will be made as part of their Stop Violence Against Women public affairs initiative.
