Deceased 22-year-old Gabrielle “Gabby” Petito’s mother, Nichole Schmidt, has joined Twitter in an attempt to reach out directly to her daughter’s missing fiancé, Brian Laundrie.
As of Sunday morning, her newly created feed contained one original tweet and one retweet.
“Mama bear is getting angry! Turn yourself in! … @josephpetito agrees. #justiceforgabby #americasdaughter,” the original tweet read.
Posted around 4:00 pm Saturday afternoon, the tweet sat underneath a retweet from Petito’s father, Joseph Petito.
The retweet from Joseph was itself a retweet of Petito’s step-mother, Tara Petito.

Hey Nichole I would love to let you know that your daughter has inspired me to get help to safely leave my abusive relationship of 12 years. Gabby is a beacon of light to so many of us and will continue to inspire many to make massively important changes. From Wales, UK ❤️

I’m so very sorry for your loss. Gabby was a beautiful, sweet, kind soul that was clear to the world.
I don’t know if it’s something you might be interested in looking into, but maybe this is something John Edwards or Theresa Caputo might be able to assist with? #justiceforgabby

Note what the latter Twitter user wrote: “She has touched many hearts and here in Australia we hope BL is caught and faces justice.”
BL is short for Brian Laundrie.
Though Laundrie hasn’t yet been named an official suspect in Petito’s death, despite a strong sentiment among the public and her family that he is indeed her killer, a warrant was issued for his arrest late last month.
The warrant pertains to his illegal use of Petito’s debit/credit cards following her disappearance.

Laundrie indicted on federal charges.
The search for him is now a manhunt. @FBI say he was indicted for “Use of Unauthorized Devices” meaning they have evidence he used #GabbyPetito credit or debit card after her death. pic.twitter.com/48Tafo5oXb

Laundrie has himself been missing since mid-September, when he reportedly told his family he was going hiking but never returned.
Prior to his own disappearance, he refused to cooperate with the authorities, lending even more credence to the theory that he’s the killer.
The evidence against him includes reports that he was abusive. Before Petito’s disappearance, she and Laundrie had a “disorderly conduct incident” involving domestic violence in Moab, Utah, during what was a 4-month-long road trip.
On Aug. 12th, local authorities “responded to a ‘domestic problem’ that day involving the couple that was later categorized as a disorderly conduct incident,” as reported by The Salt Lake Tribune.
“No one was charged in relation to the incident, but an officer separated the couple for the night, driving Laundrie to a hotel and leaving Petito with the camper van so they could ‘relax their emotions.’”
The authorities were reportedly called to the scene by bystanders who’d witnessed Laundrie slapping Petito.

According to renowned criminal profiler John Kelly — who’d previously worked on the Golden State Killer, Long Island Serial Killer and Green River Killer cases — Laundrie shows the telltale signs of a domestic abuser and control freak.
And he likely hates women.
“These guys cannot take criticism. And usually if their issues are with the female, they cannot take criticism from a female,” he told Fox News last week.
Kelly cited the examples of Laundrie not only slapping Petito but also reportedly losing his temper on restaurant workers.
Two weeks after the domestic incident in Maub, he was spotting arguing with wait staff at a restaurant in Jackson Hole, Wyoming.
“It’s crazy because it wasn’t just like we passed them on the street — it was a full blown incident,” a witness later told Fox News.
Petito’s close friend, Rose Davis, has likewise described Laundrie as extremely controlling, manipulative and potentially nuts.
“He’s got these jealousy issues and he struggles from what Gabby called these ‘episodes,’ where he would hear things and hear voices and wouldn’t sleep. Gabby had to stay at my house a bunch of times because she just needed a breather and didn’t want to go home to him,” she told the Daily Mail last month.
