Gabby Petito autopsy: Wyoming coroner to give update today
Teton County, Wyoming, coroner Brent Blue is holding a virtual press conference Tuesday regarding the final autopsy report for deceased Gabby Petito, officials said.
The FBI on Sept. 19 discovered Petito’s remains at a dispersed campground in the Bridger-Teton National Forest. Blue later identified the remains and ruled Petito’s death a homicide in his preliminary autopsy report.
The press conference will be held at 12:30 p.m. MT and is limited to members of the press, according to a Teton County spokesperson.
The final autopsy report will likely include Petito’s time and cause of death, which may help investigators determine who killed her.
Salt Lake City-based private investigator Jason Jenson, who visited the scene where Petito’s remains were discovered over the weekend, told Fox News Digital that he believes Blue will also discuss the results of a post-mortem toxicology test, which detects drugs in a person’s system.
Jenson added, however, that he also believes Petito was not using drugs at the time of her death.
Petito’s parents reported her missing eight days before her remains were discovered. The 22-year-old was traveling cross-country in a Ford transit van with her fiancé, Brian Laundrie, when she went missing. CLICK HERE FOR MORE ON OUR TOP STORY.

San Diego plane crash: At least 2 dead, including cardiologist
At least two people were killed Monday in a small plane crash in a San Diego suburb—including a cardiologist based out of Yuma, Arizona, a report said.
Dr. Sugata Das, who worked for the Yuma Regional Medical Center, was identified as one of the victims in the Santee crash, KYMA reported, citing the facility. He was remembered as an “outstanding cardiologist and dedicated family man.”
Earlier on Monday, UPS confirmed that one of its drivers died in the crash.
“We are heartbroken by the loss of our employee, and extend our deepest condolences to his family and friends,” the company told Fox News in a statement. “We also send our condolences for the other individuals who are involved in this incident, and their families and friends.”
The plane, which was identified as a two-engine Cessna C340, crashed into the residential neighborhood at about 12:15 p.m. The damage was extensive and two others were rushed to nearby hospitals. The National Transportation Safety Board said it is investigating the crash. One fire official said it was a “brutal scene.”
The plane, which was reportedly owned by Das, had departed from Yuma and was scheduled to land at Montgomery-Gibb Executive Airport in San Diego.
The National Transportation Safety Board and the Federal Aviation Administration are handling the investigation. CLICK HERE FOR MORE.

Jon Gruden resigns as Raiders head coach after homophobic, misogynistic emails revealed
Jon Gruden informed his staff he will resign as head coach after a series of emails showed him delivering racist, homophobic and misogynistic comments in emails during his time at ESPN. Gruden later announced through the Raiders he was resigning.
“I have resigned as Head Coach of the Las Vegas Raiders. I love the Raiders and do not want to be a distraction. Thank you to all the players, coaches, staff, and fans of Raider Nation. I’m sorry, I never meant to hurt anyone,” he said in a statement.
A bombshell report from the New York Times on Monday night revealed Gruden, while he was a commentator at ESPN, sent homophobic, misogynistic and other distasteful emails to former Washington Football Team president Bruce Allen between 2010 and 2018. The back-and-forth came before Gruden signed a 10-year, $100 million contract with the Las Vegas Raiders.
Gruden in at least one email, according to the Times, called NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell an anti-gay slur and a “clueless anti-football p—y” and argued that Goodell shouldn’t have allegedly pressured then-St. Louis Rams coach Jeff Fisher to draft “queers,” in reference to former NFL defensive lineman Michael Sam, who was the first openly gay player to be selected in the draft.
Gruden said he didn’t have a racist bone in his body and apologized in a statement to the Wall Street Journal. He admitted to ESPN on Sunday that there were also emails that included vulgar remarks about Goodell.
When asked about the emails again on Sunday night, Gruden pushed back and said he wasn’t a racist. CLICK HERE FOR MORE.

SOME PARTING WORDS
Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich argued Monday that the “disasters” in Democratic states are going to get worse – while the “crisis of the American system” is whether “big government socialism” can be eliminated over the next few years.
“Well, I think it’s the President, but I also think it’s the Congress. I also think it’s governors and state legislatures. You know, we are a remarkable country and allowing people to be engaged in self-government. And what you’re seeing is an amazing split. You have California doing insanely stupid things, driving people out of California toward states that have rational government,” Gingrich said on “Hannity.”
