GABBY Petito’s family have shared nine chilling signs of domestic abuse after the contents of Brian Laundrie's bombshell notebook became public.
The tragic vlogger's family posted to her foundation's Facebook page detailing how to "survive a toxic relationship."
They shared the image on Tuesday, four days after it emerged Brian had insisted in his journal that he took girlfriend Gabby's life because she had an injury and refused to let him get help.
Gabby's parents noted that warning signs to look out for include intensity, criticism, control and gaslighting.
Isolation, blame, anger, sabotage and jealousy are behaviors that should also be flagged, according to the post written by a survivor.
Gabby's loved ones wrote: "IF YOU OR SOMEONE YOU KNOW, NEED DOMESTIC VIOLENCE HELP PLEASE CALL 1-800-799-SAFE."

Gabby was reported missing by her parents on September 11 after they failed to reach her or Brian and his family; her body was found on September 19 in Grand Teton National Park.
Brian, 23, then disappeared on September 13 but was not reported missing by his parents until days later. A warrant was then issued for his arrest on September 23; his remains were found on October 21.
Pat Reilly, the attorney who represents Gabby's parents, Joe and Nichole, issued a statement condemning the release of the notebook by the Laundrie's lawyer, Steven Bertolino.
And he alleged they have omitted to release further information about Gabby's tragic murder amid a lawsuit against them.
Reilly told WFLA: "I find it ironic that Mr Bertolino says he was, in full transparency, releasing this.
"Well, someone should ask him why he doesn't release the entire notebook – but more importantly, ask him why he doesn't release Roberta Laundrie's letter to her son."

Gabby's parents, Joseph Petito and Nichole Schmidt, are seeking more than $30,000 in damages in a lawsuit claiming the Laundries knew their son had murdered the 22-year-old.
They are not being investigated by police and insist they fully cooperated with authorities.
The March filing alleges that Christopher and Roberta helped Brian hide Gabby's murder and were going to help him flee the country, which they vehemently deny.
The complaint claims the response to their son's actions was "shocking, atrocious, and utterly intolerable."
It also alleges that instead of helping search for Gabby, they ignored her family and went on a camping trip with Brian.
Roberta also supposedly avoided contact with Nichole by blocking her Facebook profile and cell number, as she desperately tried to find her daughter.
"Christopher Laundrie and Roberta Laundrie exhibited extreme and outrageous conduct which constitutes behavior, under the circumstances, which goes beyond all possible bounds of decency and is regarded as shocking, atrocious, and utterly intolerable in a civilized community," the filing reads. .
On October 12, 2021, Teton County Coroner Dr Brent Blue confirmed Gabby died by strangulation.
Laundrie wrote in his journal: "From the moment I decided to take away her pain, I knew I couldn't go on without her.
"I've lost our whole future together, every moment we could have cherished.
"I am ending my life, not because of a fear of punishment but rather because I can't stand to live another day without her."
The 23-year-old, who fatally shot himself amid a manhunt, also alluded to seeing his family after killing the young vlogger.
"I rushed home to spend any time I had with my family. I wanted to drive north and let James or TJ kill me but I wouldn't want them to spend time in jail over my mistake, even though I'm sure they would have liked to," Laundrie is believed to have written.
"I am ending my life, not because of a fear of punishment but rather because I can't stand to live another day without her.
"I've lost out whole future together, every moment we could have cherished. I'm sorry for everyone's loss. Please do not make life harder for my family, they lost a son and a daughter. The most wonderful girl in the world. Gabby I'm sorry."
