One year after the tragic murder of 22-year-old Gabby Petito, her family continues fighting for justice.
"Petito's suspected killer, 23-year-old ex-fiance Brian Laundrie, refused to cooperate with police, then ran away and took his own life days after she was declared missing. A little more than a week later, the FBI found her remains in the Bridger-Teton National Forest north of Jackson, Wyoming," reported Fox.
"Three lawsuits related to her death, one naming Laundrie’s parents and another a Utah police department that allegedly mishandled a domestic violence call involving the couple two weeks before the murder, remain pending," Fox reported.
Petito's parents and stepparents, Joseph and Tara Petito and Nichole and Jim Schmidt, are making efforts to raise awareness for domestic violence victims through the Gabby Petito Foundation.
The family established the Gabby Petito Foundation in her honor.
"I think Gabby's story touched a lot of people, and she's saving lives," said Nichole Schmidt. "I get people messaging me all the time that they were inspired by her to get out of a relationship. I know that we can use this tragedy to help save so many. It's her legacy."
