Gabby Petito’s best friend provides more case information

In a recent interview with Daily Mail, Rose Davis described herself as Gabby Petito’s friend of around two years after meeting on Bumble BFF, a networking app for friendships.

Rose Davis got to know Gabby’s partner, Brian Laundrie and would visit the couple’s home in North Port, Florida.

However, Davis claimed Brian had a jealousy issue and explained her ‘problematic’ relationship with Gabby’s Fiancé.

Laundrie was travelling with Gabby on a hiking trip out west while filming their adventures for a ‘van life’ YouTube channel she was creating.

Brian then returned home to Florida alone on September 1st 2021, while Gabby was reported as missing and her body was later found by officials.

Rose Davis reported that Gabby’s ID was allegedly hidden by Brian in the past to prevent her from going out to a bar and told Daily Mail on Friday:

“He’s got these jealousy issues and he struggles from what Gabby called these ‘episodes’ where he would hear things and hear voices and wouldn’t sleep.”

In reference to Brian’s return from the trip, Rose quoted:

“When I saw that Brian was back from the trip, that was the first thing that popped into my mind – that Brian had one of his episodes – and I was just hoping he didn’t have a snapping moment,”

Since Rose lived half an hour away from Gabby and Brian’s home, she had last spoke to Gabby in early August and was planning to meet her in Wyoming’s Yellowstone National Park in September 2021.

Although Rose had reportedly requested time off work in preparation for the trip, Gabby had never called to confirm.

When describing Gabby’s boyfriend, Davis suggested there was ‘something off’ in her statement:

“He had this composure as a sweet, nice, caring guy. But you could tell he’s a little off, a little weird. Like, he’d set up our hammocks when we’d go to beach, but wouldn’t sit with us, which I found bizarre.”

Rose also stated that as Gabby’s only friend in Florida, Brian did not want his girlfriend to have friends.

However, Rose didn’t take up the issue because she didn’t want it to cause an argument with Brian.

Brian would also allegedly demand Gabby home for dinner and cut their time as friends spent together short.

In reference to previous body camera footage that indicates Gabby’s feeling of threat, Rose stated that knowing her friend suffers from anxiety, something had to trigger the anxious feelings to act up.

The body camera footage reportedly reminded Rose of the hidden ID episode from Florida and confirmed that she believes their relationship was getting more problematic due to the continuous arguments.
