It's now clearer what happened to Gabby Petito while her fiancé Brian Laundrie is still on the loose.

On Tuesday, Teton County Coroner Dr. Brent Blue ruled that Petito's death was a homicide, and though the cause of death was revealed, he didn't provide further details about the autopsy or the potential suspect.

Petito's body was said to have been outdoors for three to four weeks in a national park in Wyoming just before it was discovered on Sept. 19.

The coroner didn't also comment on Laundrie and if he will continue to be named a suspect in Petito's case.

Laundrie is the person of interest in the case after returning home alone on Sept. 1 from their planned cross-country trip.

He later disappeared two days after Petito's family reported her missing on Sept. 11.

Gabby Petito Cause of Death

According to Dr. Blue, Gabby Petito's cause of death was due to strangulation due to homicide.

There are three types of strangulation, according to The Sun.

The first is hanging, which means suspension from a cord wound around the neck.

The next is ligature strangulation, which is a type of strangulation without suspension using a cord-like object like a garrote.

The third is manual strangulation, which is strangulation by using the fingers or other extremities.

While the third is most likely the type of strangulation done to Gabby Petito, Brian Laundrie fans believe that she might have died while in an intimate act with her fiancé.

Gabby Petito Strangulation Theory

In a subreddit r/FriendsofBrian, one Redditor believes that Gabby Petito was strangulated from kinky sex.

The OP discussed that Petito had beat up Laundrie, and the police confronted her about it and, later on, was forgiven by Laundrie.

The OP further claimed that "Maybe Brian had kinky makeup sex with gabby and she died after asking him to choke her. This lines up with the police and maga trying to hunt Brian down because Brian is sex positive and bloomph supporters are not."

Meanwhile, the comments section had further shocking claims, with one poster saying Petito wanted to star in an adult movie and was making cruel demands from Laundrie as she "cuckolded him with male actors."

Another commented that Laundrie is completely innocent and that another person strangled Petito, particularly a POC.

"Given Gabby's well known history of fetishisation of black males and her abject racism: she was probably strangled by a man of color, during coitus, after she called him the n-word."

Another said that perhaps Petito cheated on Laundrie before her death because he was in Utah at the time.

"gabby was using this opportunity to cheat on him. she had sex with the wrong rando."
