Search warrant for computers found in couple’s van highlights ‘odd text’ Petito’s family received

The search warrant issued for computers and hard drives found in Gabby Petito’s and Brian Laundrie’s van highlights and odd text Petito’s family received.

“On August 27th, 2021 the subject’s mother, Nichole Schmidt, received an ‘odd text’ from the subject. The text message read, ‘Can you help Stan, I just keep getting his voicemails and missed calls.”

The document goes on to explain that referring to Stan, Petito’s grandfather, by name was unusual behavior for Petito. The exchange led the mother to begin having concerns for Petito’s well being.
