“I’m our society, all too often, violence against women is glorified with salacious true crime fascinations. Can you name off the top of your head any of Ted Bundy’s victims? Probably not. … GABBY is changing that narrative,” mural artist Theresa “Tess” Parker wrote on Instagram.

Parker is currently finishing the mural on Long Island.

Wyoming restaurant fight is key to manhunt, FBI behavioral analyst says

Dr. Ann Wolbert Burgess, who pioneered the FBI's Behavioral Science Unit, says the argument between fugitive Brian Laundrie and Gabby Petito that witnesses observed at a Wyoming restaurant on Aug. 27 may be the key to Petito's tragic fate.

One of the last times Petito, 22, was seen alive involved an explosive argument between Laundrie, 23, and wait staff at a Jackson Hole restaurant called Merry Piglets, witness Nina Celie Angelo told Fox News Digital in September.
