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.

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."
