Gabby Petito’s remains found in Wyoming, FBI confirms ‘murder’
The FBI confirmed Tuesday afternoon that 22-year-old Gabby Petito, a remains investigators discovered Sunday in the Teton-Bridger National Forest, was missing.
The FBI and local law enforcement agencies were searching for Petito over the weekend in a remote campsite area bordering the National Forest and Grand Teton National Park. The remains found on Sunday were taken to Blue’s office for an autopsy, which he did on Tuesday. Neither the final report nor the exact cause of death has been released.
“The FBI’s commitment to justice is at the forefront of every investigation,” Michael Schneider, special agent in charge of FBI Denver, said in a statement. “The FBI and our allies are dedicated to ensuring that anyone responsible for or involved in Ms. Petito’s death is held accountable for their actions.”
Petito and his 23-year-old fiancé, Brian Laundry, were traveling from New York to Oregon in a white 2012 Ford Transit van, which they converted into a camper. Tipster has suggested that the pair were last seen together in Wyoming near Grand Teton National Park in late August.
Pettito’s family reported her missing on September 11, when she last spoke to her mother in late August. Click here for more on our top story.

House passes bill to increase debt limit to prevent shutdown, but next step is Senate
The House of Representatives voted Tuesday night to pass an ongoing resolution to fund the government and raise the $28 trillion debt limit by December 3.
HR 5305, which passed in a party-line vote of 220-211, would require the support of at least 10 Republicans to pass in the Senate.
Nearly every Republican in the Senate has expressed opposition to tying a debt limit to a bill that funds the government, citing opposition to President Joe Biden’s agenda. If Congress does not reach a consensus by the September 30 deadline, the federal government will face a possible shutdown on October 1.
The government expects to reach the debt threshold by mid-October, which Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen wrote in a recent Wall Street Journal op-ed that could lead to “economic devastation.”
“The bill that Speaker Pelosi is bringing this week will not become law,” said House Minority Whip Steve Scalis, R-La. “They have to go back to the drawing board.”
Sen. John Kennedy, R-La., is the only Republican who has said he would “happily vote” for the bill, which includes $28.6 billion in natural disaster relief funds for states like Louisiana, which recently hit hurricanes. Was devastated by Ida. Click Here For More.

Biden refuses to meet US journalists, while Britain’s Boris Johnson appears in court with Brits
President Joe Biden on Tuesday refused to call American journalists after British Prime Minister Boris Johnson questioned United Kingdom reporters during an Oval Office meeting.
After a brief conversation with Biden, which touched on issues ranging from climate change and transport infrastructure to lifting restrictions on British beef, Johnson opened the stage to journalists in his country.
“Would it be okay if we only have a few questions, just a couple?” Johnson asked, looking at Biden, who replied, “Good luck.”
The press pool was forced out of the Oval Office after Johnson took several questions to British journalists while Johnson was mid-sentence, prompting a flurry of shouting questions from journalists.
As he exited the pool, Biden appeared to briefly respond to a shouted question, “Violence is unacceptable.” It is not clear what the question was.
White House reporters complained of no formal questions being received at the White House while the British press asked them. Click Here For More.

some parting words
Government Greg Abbott was a guest on Tuesday’s “Hannity,” where he dubbed the Biden administration’s approach to securing the southern border a “disaster.”
“You use a word that really captures it — and that word is ‘chaos,'” the Texas governor told the Granthshala News host. “It’s almost like a third world country in this small area that Biden has put all these migrants in, and it’s a disaster.”
