New Peacock Documentary Promises New Insight Into The Gabby Petito Case

“The Murder of Gabby Petito: Truth, Lies and Social Media” will examine "Gabby’s life through the curated lens she created and immerses the viewer in the world of social media sleuthing that was crucial to the case," according to Peacock.

The Gabby Petito saga has been, without question, one of the biggest true crime cases of 2021. In an upcoming documentary special, Peacock attempts to separate fact from fiction in Gabby's life and untimely death. 

“The Murder of Gabby Petito: Truth, Lies and Social Media” will examine "Gabby’s life through the curated lens she created and immerses the viewer in the world of social media sleuthing that was crucial to the case," according to Peacock.

The 22-year-old travel blogger vanished in early September while on a road trip with her boyfriend Brian Laundrie, kicking off a national search that attracted worldwide interest. Her family had reported her missing more than a week after Laundrie, 23, left the couple’s cross-country trip and returned to his parents' home in North Port, Florida without her. A few days later Laundrie, who was classified by police as a person of interest in Petito's disappearance, also vanished.

Petito's remains were found in Wyoming on Sept. 19 and an autopsy revealed that she had been strangled to death, likely weeks before she was found. When investigators later found Laundrie's body in a Florida nature preserve in October following weeks-long manhunt, they determined he died from a self-inflicted gunshot.

“The Murder of Gabby Petito: Truth, Lies and Social Media,” produced by ITN Productions, will feature Petito's parents in their first documentary interview as they "reflect on the life of their daughter, sharing childhood memories including exclusive photos and details that we never knew before," according to Peacock.

The film promises to give a "fresh take on the case that captivated millions," including interviews with journalists who covered the case and social media users "who crowdsourced their time and uncovered new information and clues to help law enforcement."

"From the TikToker who debunked false theories in the search, to the YouTubers who realized they had filmed Gabby and Brian’s van purely by coincidence, the film leaves no stone unturned."

"The Murder of Gabby Petito: Truth, Lies and Social Media" will air on Oxygen on Monday, January 24 at 9/8c. It's also available to stream on Peacock now.
