In the late summer of 2021, the story of 22-year-old Gabby Petito's disappearance spread quickly across social media and throughout the media. Headlines put a spotlight on the missing 22-year-old "van life'" video blogger, and on her fiancé, Brian Laundrie, who had returned home to Florida without her. Gabby's body was eventually found near a Wyoming campground, and a month later, Brian's remains were discovered in a Florida nature reserve. In a notebook found near Brian, he claimed responsibility for Gabby's death.

Now "48 Hours" investigates if Gabby's death could have been prevented in: "Gabby Petito: The Untold Story." CBS News national correspondent Jericka Duncan, takes a deeper look into the life and death of Gabby Petito, and the steps that her parents have taken to seek justice on behalf of their daughter.
