Revealed: Jailed sex offenders sign up to dating websites while locked inside a secure hospital for mentally-ill prisoners – and one profile picture was taken…
FOLLOWERS of the Gabby Petito case have fumed she will never have her dream wedding or start a family after authorities confirmed her body had been found.
The 22-year-old had touchingly mapped out a design scheme and ideas for her big day on her Pinterest page, poignantly titled "life goals".
The vlogger embarked on a cross country road trip with her fiancé Brian Laundrie but was reported missing after he returned home without her.
A body found in Grand Teton National Park on September 19 has since been confirmed to be Gabby – while Laundrie himself vanished and is being hunted by cops.
Gabby had charted her inspirations for her nuptials on image-sharing app Pinterest since getting engaged to Laundrie in July 2020.
The pair had "put it on hold" according to Gabby's mom, Nichole Schmidt, as they set off on their cross-country adventure – but Gabby continued to carve out ideas for her dream wedding ceremony online.
The nature lover's Pinterest features tonnes of flower and forest-inspired designs as well as outdoor ceremonies – with one even showing potted plants as wedding favors.
Another of her pages – titled "Oh Baby" – tragically shows Gabby's desires to start a family – showing images of cute outdoors-loving tots.
Chillingly, the listed collaborators on Gabby's Pinterest page include her fiancé Brian as well as his mother, Roberta Laundrie.
One user commented: "She wanted a wedding, a baby, she wanted to have a family & a future. You deserved better than this Gabby, so much better."
Another said: "Just absorbing the #GabbyPetito news thinking of everything she could have had in her life. A man that loves her with all her quirks. Her wedding day with him. Their children."
"The most beautiful young woman, just starting her life," a third added. "My heart hurts so badly for people I don't know on the other side of the world. She had all of her hopes and dreams ahead of her stolen."
Now Gabby's supporters have expressed their sadness after delving deep into her online mood board, as her heartbroken family shared a touching tribute to their daughter depicted as an angel.
Digital artist Troy Austin created the stunning image by altering an image from Gabby's final Instagram post, where she poses in front of the Monarch mural in Ogden, Utah.
His TikTok video sharing the process was flooded with praise in the comment section before Gabby's parents later shared the picture on their FaceBook page dedicated to the search for their daughter.
They shared the angel illustration alongside the words: "#justiceforgabby".
LAUNDRIE'S "DISTURBING" POSTS
Social media users also spotted that Laundrie appeared to save a series of "disturbing" images on his Pinterest in the weeks before Gabby disappeared.
The 23-year-old has not yet been named a suspect in Petito's disappearance but is considered a person of interest.
The account, @blaundrie1197, is not confirmed to belong to Laundrie but does share albums with a page belonging to Petito and an account with the display name Roberta Laundrie, which is the name of his mother.
Amid his own disappearance, one of the posts now causing a stir online is a pin he saved a number of weeks ago titled "The Opposite Of Lost."
It features images of Petito modeling custom facemasks made by Bizarre Designs, which includes links to Laundrie's Instagram and Depop pages.
The image, saved to a folder titled "my Heart", features pale purple and pink clouds. Also written beneath are the words: "Don't try to find me. I have finally escaped my 'master's' wicked clutches.
"To the others I say: JOIN ME. Bite the hand that feeds you. Vive La Beberte – Pierre."
Also featured in the same folder is a series of quotes, including one from the movie Fight Club which reads, "It's only after we've lost everything that we're free to do anything."
A second, this one from Pokemon, says: "It hurt itself in its confusion."
Another post features artwork designed by Sacha Strange, and shows a cartoon gravestone with the words "My Baby" written across it.
The words "She'll never find a sweet man like me", and
"Let her go, let her go, GOD BLESS HER, wherever she may be" also appear around the headstone.
It comes after internet sleuths wildly claimed Gabby may have been pregnant before her death after delving into her baby-themed Pinterest board.
Online detectives even alleged they had spotted a "sonogram" on the dirt track near where her van was found parked in Wyoming.
One sleuth, who watched a video posted by travel bloggers Jenn and Kyle Bethune, shared an image that looks like a “sonogram”.
The "picture" was among several items by the roadside including what looks like a spiraled notebook.
It remains unknown if a "sonogram" was among the items found near the couple's van.
The claims that Gabby may be pregnant are purely speculation at this time.
It is not known if she was expecting a baby at the time of her disappearance.
Gabby also shared links to pictures that showed little girls dressed up as grapes and fairies as they wore fancy dress.
Social media users have speculated that the Pinterest board may have been a sign that Gabby wanted to become a mom at some point in her life.
