why is this gabby petito story everywhere

Humans in space suits make monkeys nervous

Postby auspice » Sun Sep 19, 2021 9:13 pm

is it just because she's a white girl and news media always blows up missing white girl cases?

edited original thread title because it was dumb and unfunny

It’s like a true crime show…but in real time.

Been seeing this supposed footage from when they found her today. Not yet verified. Spoiler-tagging.

I mean yeah but I'm having a real hard time imaging this playing out the way it has with a POC protagonist.

I guess the #vanlife component makes it sorta uniquely of the moment, but otherwise...

Like how many women go missing in this country on a daily basis.

Probably lots, since most violence against women is perpetrated by domestic partners they're close to as opposed to strangers. It just...dosent seem unique in that sense, other than the fact its affecting a photogenic young white woman. Which is par for the course in every other example the media has crafted into a similar real time narrative

Like, you think the FBI/local PD mounts this kinda response when a minority goes missing in a poor neighborhood? It dosent even make the morning after news feed.

yeah I'll admit this one certainly had seasoning as far as these things go given the girl was doing a travel vlog before things got sad.

other details like a TikToker unwittingly picking up the fiance as he was hitchhiking away from the scene of the crime are definitely out there. wonder how long the true crime podcasters are gonna wait before they pounce on it

next big question will be how many news outlets show the fiance's mugshot when he's arrested instead of the happy photos of them together

Personally? I’m pretty invested because she owes me $20.

boyfriend absolutely did it, true crime show watchers know

my uh… what’s the word. cynical take is that the media attention is because it is very obvious her boyfriend did it and everyone already ate up that true crime thing where the guy killed his wife and kids to be with his mistress or whatever so they know this one has legs

so far ive only watched one little news snippet about this a couple days ago and i was very very surprised at the tone it had towards her boyfriend, like he was just some normal boyfriend that didn’t… very obviously kill his gf

like who wants to bet me $200 that the boyfriend did it!!! i’m calling it rn

it’s similar to the watts family thing also in that the wife did a bunch of vlogs and apparently so did this girl
