To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act, I hereby request the following records:

Any and all records mentioning or describing Gabby Petito (March 19, 1999 - late August 2021) also known as Gabrielle Venora Petito.

In August 2021, Gabby Petito, an American woman, was killed by her fiancé, Brian Laundrie, while they were traveling together on a vanlife journey across the United States. The trip began on July 2, 2021, and was planned to last four months; however, Petito disappeared in late August.

On September 19, Petito's remains were found at Bridger–Teton National Forest in Wyoming. The FBI later announced that Laundrie admitted to killing Petito in his notebook, which was found near his remains.

Media articles establishing that Gabby Petito has passed away are available here:

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 20 business days, as the statute requires.
