Gabby Petito told cops that Brian Laundrie hit her when Utah police responded to a domestic incident on August 12, shocking new body-cam reveals.
While the world has seen the first responding Moab officer's footage from his interview with the couple, Nation News Now reporter Brian Entin just released the video from the second cop on scene.
When police caught up with the couple, her relaxed fiancé seemed to pin the blame on Gabby. She was seen on camera bawling while taking fault for the argument, even admitting to hitting him.
She told the cops she suffered from OCD and anxiety. They chalked the whole thing up to a mental-health crisis and not a domestic incident.
The last time anyone reportedly saw Gabby alive was on August 27, where eyewitnesses claimed she and Brian had an "incident" at a diner in Wyoming.
In the newest body-cam footage, the second officer asks Gabby point-blank, "Did he hit you though?"

Through her tears, she responds, "I guess," before continuing to take the blame. "I guess, yea," Gabby continues, "but I hit him first."
The cop pried for more information. "Where did he hit you?" he asks. "Don't worry, just be honest." Her tune immediately changes and she backtracks to what she told the other officer, claiming Brian grabbed her face.
"Did he slap your face, or what?" the police officer responds.
"Well he like, grabbed me with his nail, and I guess that's why it looks, I definitely have a cut right here," she say, holding onto her cheek. "I can feel it, when I touch it it burns."
"Is there something on your cheek here?" the cop then asks. "Did you get hit on the face?"
"I’m not sure," Gabby responds.
The responding officers are currently being investigated for how they handled the situation. The couple was on a cross-country road trip when Brian returned home to Florida on September 1 in their van without Gabby.
Her parents reported her missing on September 11, one month after they were stopped by police.
Gabby's body was found on September 19 in Wyoming. The coroner ruled her death a homicide. Brian's family claims he disappeared on September 14 after taking a solo hike near their Florida home.
Brian's whereabouts are still unknown and the manhunt continues with Dog The Bounty Hunter joining the search force.
