Officials believe a body found in Bridger-Teton National Forest in Wyoming, is missing 22-year-old YouTuber Gabby Petito.

An autopsy is currently underway, Teton County coroner Brent Blue confirmed to Fox News Digital. The body was found on Sunday by a search team with the aid of bloodhounds.

Authorities say the human remains fit the description of Petito, whose mysterious disappearance generated headlines all over the world.

The “Van Life” vlogger was last seen in August in Grand Teton National Park with her fiancé, Brian Laundrie, 23, who is considered a “person of interest” in her disappearance.

The couple traveled from New York to Wyoming on a cross-country road trip in August. Laundrie raised suspicion when he showed up alone in Petito’s van at his parents’ home in Florida on Sept. 1.

Police discovered Petito’s 2012 white Ford Transit parked outside the Laundrie home on Sept. 11, after Petito’s mother reported her missing.

Laundrie quickly lawyered up and refused to speak to police.

On Friday, Laundrie’s lawyer reported him missing. However, Laundrie’s family insisted he was “in hiding” due to the growing crowd of news media and curious onlookers outside the Laundrie home.

Laundrie was last seen at the home on Tuesday, Sept. 14.

Inside Edition aired police bodycam footage that shows a distraught Petito moments after a heated argument with Laundrie during their road trip in Utah.

A witness spotted the couple arguing at a grocery store and called 911. Police pulled the van over outside Arches National Park.

“We’ve just been fighting all morning,” Petito said in tears in the bodycam video on August 12. The officer asked her to step out of the van and she complied.
 

 
“I just quit my job to travel across the country, and I’m trying to start a blog — a travel blog. So I’ve been building my website, so I’ve been really stressed,” Petito said.

“She just gets worked up sometimes,” said Laundrie who was observed with fresh scratches on his face.

Petito told the officer she was diagnosed with obsessive compulsive disorder. She said she feared Laundrie was going to drive off and leave her stranded at the grocery store.

Laundrie told the officer she scratched him when he pushed her hand away.

A family of travel vloggers believe they spotted Petito’s van parked off the road in Grand Teton National Park on August 27, around the time it is believed Petito went missing.

Jenn Bethune shared footage of the van on YouTube. She spoke with Petito’s mom who thanked her on Sunday for sharing the footage.

The video footage was the lead that prompted authorities to search the park for Petito.

Katie Peterson: 5 Things To Know About Jesse McCartney’s New Wife

Jesse McCartney is a married man! The actor and singer tied the knot with Katie Peterson in a romantic ceremony, so here’s what you need to know about his new blushing bride.

Andy from Greek is all grown up. Jesse McCartney married Katie Peterson on Saturday (Oct. 23) in a “romantic, rustic-chic ceremony at the Santa Lucia Preserve in Carmel, California,” according to PEOPLE. Jessie and Katie, both 34, reportedly exchanged vows they wrote themselves in a ceremony officiated by Jesse’s uncle. The newlywed’s dog, Bailey, served as a flower girl. Katie wore a Galia Lahav couture dress and champagne-colored Jimmy Choos. “It felt very rustic, and almost like my dress is coming out of the woods as well,” she told PEOPLE.

 “It’s breathtaking,” Katie told PEOPLE about the wedding venue. “It’s extremely whimsical and like a fairytale, truly. You’re in the middle of the redwoods, and these trees are like, 800 years old, and they’re massive. It’s a very special place.” Among the 147 guests who witnessed this “fairytale” wedding was Hunter Hayes, who Jessie met on The Masked Singer, his Young and Hungry co-star Jonathan Sadowski, and his Greek co-stars Paul James and Jacob Zachar. As the couple enjoys the bliss of their new marriage, here’s the scoop on Katie.

1. Katie Peterson Is An Actress

Like her new husband, Katie is a performer, one who has appeared in television series and movies. She has starred in films like Girls Goen Dead, The Row, and Step Up Revolution. She has also appeared on Major Crimes, Graceland, Victorious, and Happily Divorced.

2. Katie Has A College Degree

3. Katie Appeared In One Of Jessie’s Music Videos

Jesse released “Friends” in 2020, along with an animated music video. The visual saw him reunite with his former Greek castmates — Scott Michael Foster, Jacob Zachar, and Paul James – and featured a special appearance by both Katie and the couple’s dog.

The song was written well before [COVID-19], and, you know, they were not in any way connected,” he said during an appearance on the HollywoodLife podcast. “I just wanted to write a song that was romantic about friendship because I don’t think you hear that a lot in pop. Sure, you hear about relationships that are great or aren’t great. But it was just like kind of a new idea of talking about how great it is to have friends in your life. And then when I took on this whole new meaning with the pandemic, it then became nostalgic for people like, ‘oh, my gosh, I can’t see my friends again.’”

4. She Is Active On Social Media

Katie has a presence on Instagram, with over 34k followers. One month ahead of her and Jesse’s wedding, Katie celebrated the third anniversary of their engagement. “Jesse first played me #PartyForTwo on the night he proposed, 9.13.19,” she captioned the mirror selfie of her and Jesse. “It will forever be the most special song to me. I hope it gives you all the feels it gave me. I love you, J.” She also added, “How am I suppose to write vows when my fiancé can do this?!?”

5. She First Met Jesse In A Bar

Jesse and Katie first met in 2012 when she was tending bar, and he came in to celebrate a friend’s birthday, per PEOPLE. “I was sort of trying to sweet-talk her,” he said. “I found her incredibly attractive and was just trying to charm her, but she wasn’t having it. I eventually left my number on a napkin and she said, ‘You didn’t write your name down on it!’ And I was like, ‘Oh, of course, she probably got a million of these tonight.’ I had to write my name down on the napkin and then eventually the rest is history!” The couple went on their first date at The Cut in Beverly Hills, the site where he would propose in 2019.

I found someone who wholeheartedly loves my babies and who Tay and Bray adore. We are so much better as one, and I am so proud to call you MY WIFE.”

One day after the wedding, Heather shared another image from her big day, which featured her husband planting a kiss on her cheek.

“I’m a WIFE!!! Yesterday feels like a dream… so perfect, filled with so much love and magic. Truly everything I’ve ever wanted and more. I love you so much @therealtarekelmoussa and now I get to say we’re officially MARRIED!!” she exclaimed.

Qué Lástima: J Balvin Apologizes For Walking Black Women On Leashes In Controversial “Perra” Music Video

Qué Lástima: J Balvin Apologizes For Walking Black Women On Leashes In Controversial “Perra” Music Video

J Balvin has been at the receiving end of some serious backlash for weeks now, but after trying to ignore it for a while, he’s finally issued an apology.

In September, J Balvin released a music video for his collaboration with Tokischa, “Perra.” The song’s title translates to “female dog” in Spanish, and the lyrics for the song are about just that, referring to dogs in heat, among other things.

While the lyrics are your reggaeton subject matter, the problem arose when the pair released a video for the track, which showed the Colombian singer walking with two Black women on leashes. His collaborator, who is Dominican and has a fairly dark complexion, was also seen posing in a dog house for the video. 

Fans were responding negatively to the video for weeks with no response from Balvin, and last week, the visual was quietly removed from Youtube with no word from the musician or his camp. Over the weekend, though, he finally issued an apology, posting an apology video to his Instagram Stories.
