Search For Brian Laundrie And Gabby Petito Leads To Discovery Of At Least Three More Bodies

The massive operation to find Gabby Petito and hunt down Brian Laundrie has resulted in the discovery of three other bodies.

Petitio and Laundrie were on a large road trip across the United States and were documenting the journey on social media.

However, the trip turned sour and Gabby, 22, was strangled to death and her fiancé was named as a person of interest in the homicide.

However, Laundrie disappeared after returning from his trip in early September, which sparked one of the biggest manhunts in recent US history.
