“They were talking aggressively [at] each other [and] something definitely seemed off,” the witness, identified only as Christopher, wrote. “At one point, they were sort of fighting over a phone – I think the male took the female’s phone. It appeared that he didn’t want her in the white van.”
The male, believed to be Laundrie, got into the driver’s seat, according to Christopher, and the woman, believed to be Petito, followed. It happened outside the Moonflower Cooperative – an organic grocery store in downtown Moab.
“I heard her say, ‘Why do you have to be so mean?’” the witness wrote.
