Gabby was a 22 year old girl on a road trip with her Fiance. The case blew up all over the media when he came home alone and she was reported missing. Everyone on social media took it upon themselves to become a detective. Posting videos from her Spotify playlists to spying on Brain Laundries families backyard. DO you think its ok for everyone to all of a sudden to become a self proclaimed journalist? What made these people think involving themselves was ok? Was all the media being posted okay or should most of it been held private between the families and the police. It is also upsetting how the case blew up, but there are almost 800,000 people that go missing a year.
