Judge Denies Motion to Dismiss Petito Parents' Suit Against Laundries

VENICE, FL -- A Sarasota County circuit judge has rejected a motion by the parents of Brian Laundrie to dismiss the civil suit filed by the parents of Gabby Petito.

Nicole Schmidt and Joseph Petito claim that Chris and Roberta Laundrie knew their son had killed his fiancee and created anguish by not sharing that information. This ruling means Petito's parents can continue their case.

Investigators believe Brian Laundrie killed Gabby Petito in Wyoming in August, based in part on the confession he left in his notebook before taking his own life.
