Robert Lowery, a missing hiker discovered dead near Gabby Petito’s remains in Wyoming, committed himself, according to authorities. Lowery died by suicide from a gunshot wound to the head, according to the Teton County Coroner’s Office in Wyoming. Lowery, a Houston father of two, was discovered on September 28 near the Black Canyon Trail in the Bridger-Teton National Forest, near where Petito’s corpse was discovered on September 19.
Gabby Petito’s remains were discovered in an area of Grand Teton National Park and Bridger-Teton National Forest after she went missing while on a cross-country vacation with her boyfriend, Brian Laundrie, after days of searching. Robert Lowery, who was last seen at the end of August, and Cian McLaughlin, who was reported missing in mid-June, were two additional persons who went missing in or around Grand Teton National Park that summer.
Officials claimed in a statement that “widespread press coverage of the Gabby Petito search helped draw awareness to Lowery’s case, and resulted in at least two members of the public phoning local authorities this past weekend with new information concerning his probable last seen position.” Lowery was last seen wearing a black baseball cap and carrying a Nike duffel bag on the Black Canyon Trail. A dog team located the hiker’s body off the route on a steep, forested slope. During the hunt, up to 25 people trekked nearly 75 kilometers.
