Meanwhile, Laundrie stated he “didn’t have time” to defend himself from allegations he’d struck his fiancée.

“I pushed her away,” he tells the officer. “She gets really worked up, and when she does she swings and she had her cell phone in her hand. So I was just trying to push her away.” 

A 911 name from Aug. 12 – first reported by Fox News Digital earlier this month – illustrated what specialists have flagged as a doubtlessly abusive relationship between Petito and Laundrie. Fox News beforehand obtained a distinct officer’s bodycam video, however it seems that the police performed separate interviews.

“Did he hit you though?” the officer asks Petito.

“I guess,” she replies – though she nonetheless seems to downplay the incident to the second officer and tries and assume blame herself.
