We now know a little more about the death of Gabby Petito.

On Tuesday, the Teton County, Wyoming, medical examiner presented the findings of the autopsy, which had already called the death "homicide" in late September.

According to Brent Blue, the young woman was killed "by strangulation".

According to forensic analyzes, the death dates back to "three or four weeks" before the discovery of his remains on September 19.

Gabby Petito and her fiancé Brian Laundrie crisscrossed the United States all summer in a converted van, documenting their trip on Instagram and YouTube under the hashtag #vanlife.

But after Brian Laundrie returned alone at the wheel of the couple's van on September 1, the girl's parents reported her missing to authorities.

Her fiancé, who is walled in silence, has not been seen since September 13.

The young woman's body was discovered on September 19 in a Wyoming national park (see timeline in box).

An arrest warrant was issued against Brian Laundrie by the American justice at the end of September, but not directly in connection with the death of Gabby Petito: Brian Laundrie was charged with bank fraud, for having used the credit card of the young woman after his death.
