QUESTIONING AUTHORITIES’ DUE DILIGENCE
50 Cent, whose real name is Curtis James Jackson III, shared an article on Instagram discussing other missing people who have been found dead in the hunt for Gabby Petito.
“So nobody was looking for the other 9 mother f***ers Gabby got everybody skeletons coming out,” he said.
The case has turned up at least seven bodies since Gabby disappeared, and many are questioning why authorities aren’t giving the same attention to others who have been reported missing.
MISSING REMAINS FOUND
Seven bodies were found during the search for Gabby, but authorities have located the bodies of two other women in unrelated searches.
Emily Ferlazzo was reported missing on Monday, in a case that is being closely compared to the Petito case.
Both women were 23 and Emily, like Gabby, was traveling in a van with her new husband, Joseph Ferlazzo, 41.
Her body was found on Wednesday in the couple’s camper van after her husband confessed to the murder.
Ferlazzo confessed to shooting his wife twice in the head while she slept before he dismembered her body. Police found Emily’s remains in the bathroom and Ferlazzo was charged with murder.

Ferlazzo plead not guilty on Wednesday, although authorities say he had already admitted to the crime.
The body of 19-year-old Miya Marcano, who went missing two weeks after Gabby Petito, was found hanged on September 27.
Miya’s family attorney told Insider the police didn’t prioritize her case as they did with Gabby’s, although he did not negate that Gabby’s case deserved the attention it has had.
“I think it’s very interesting that we have two of these cases happening pretty simultaneously. And I think what it does is it really gives the world an opportunity to see sometimes some of the differences that you have in the coverage that each case receives,” attorney Daryl Washington said.
50 Cent’s post sparked fierce debate.
“How the first detectives ain’t find s**t, but THESE guys find 9+ bodies ALL unrelated to their case‼️‼️ SOMEONE wasn’t doing their jobs,” one person commented.
Those found during the search for Gabby included a married couple found to have been murdered in Utah, a Colorado woman, Sara Bayard who had been missing since July 2021, and 30-year-old Lauren Cho who has garnered perhaps the most attention for her case.
Lauren’s case gained attention as it was compared to Gabby’s disappearance, and law enforcement was criticized for not giving her case more attention. Lauren is of Asian descent, and critics say her case would have been taken more seriously if she was white.
Gabby Petito’s Case
Gabby Petito was reported missing on September 11 after her fiance, Brian Laundrie, returned from a cross-country road trip without her.
Authorities scoured the country in search of Gabby’s body, and Brian remained a person of interest in her disappearance.
Gabby’s body was found in Wyoming, and her death was eventually ruled a homicide by strangulation.
Brian was reported missing on September 17, three days after he told his parents he was going to Carlton Reserve.
Human remains were found at the reserve on Wednesday, and the Laundrie’s attorney says there is a strong possibility it is Brian.
A backpack and notebook were found near the remains. Investigators have not yet identified the remains.
