I kind of pictured it that way, sadly. I thought that it was going to be a very intimate method, given they were on the road together making each other nuts riding around in close quarters.
The Teton County Coroner kept the presser brief, revealing Gabby died by strangulation … while maintaining her death is a homicide. He also estimates the time she was killed might’ve been 3 to 4 weeks before her remains were found.
As for why it took so long to come to this conclusion … the coroner says they were waiting on toxicology, as well as for certain specialists — like an anthropologist, who was apparently consulted for this — to weigh in … saying they wanted to be exact and get it right.
The coroner also noted … Gabby was NOT pregnant.
