    Would they be able to tell if she was strangled by hands or by something else?

    I wonder if the coroner determination of 3-4 weeks is because they are fairly certain it was 3 weeks, but being exposed to the elements for so long is making it more difficult to state an exact time.

    That’s probably in the investigation and he won’t talk about it.

    Is it typical for the coroner to not answer the bulk of the questions being asked and instead refer to LE/FBI? It seems like he is only reiterating that she was left in the wilderness for weeks. Just trying to get an understanding of what they can and can not say. /jw

    Is it the “elected official” vibe?

    Which would be easy, because she was young and trusting and she loved him.

    Well, I don’t know about the rest of you but as much as I’ve enjoyed batting ideas around with you all, and still do, this is suddenly “all too real”. Poor Gabby had to look her killer in the eyes whilst her life was slowly taken from her, either by someone she knew & loved, or a stranger.

    That’s a horrible, personal way to die. Her poor parents, I just can’t imagine (& hope I never have to).

    RIP Gabby, and much love to your family x

    Strangulation only takes a few minutes. People driving by couldn’t stop it. Moab Police saw the toxic relationship and couldn’t stop this from happening. Unless Gabby had gotten away from BL right then, and for good, this was a tragedy waiting to happen. IMO

    It cuts the time frame we had before in half. It's not unhelpful.

    UPDATE: Oct 12, 2021 / 02:44 PM EDT

    Teton County Coroner Dr. Brent Blue has confirmed Gabby Petito’s cause of death to be strangulation. It is believed she died three to four weeks before her body was found.

    Blue said Wyoming state law does not allow any other information regarding the body’s trauma to be released.

    He did not comment on the body’s condition at the time of discovery. While Blue did say the body was outside, he could not say if it was buried or exposed, explaining that the FBI would have to give the answer.

    The coroner said DNA samples were taken by law enforcement.
