Searchers: Petito news leads to man’s body in unrelated case
Teton County Search & Rescue officials say the body found Tuesday in the Teton Pass area matches the description of 46-year-old Robert Lowery, of Houston, who went missing Aug. 20.
The body of 22-year-old Gabby Petito was found Sept. 11 near Grand Teton National Park.
She’d gone missing on a road trip with her boyfriend. Investigators say news coverage of Petito that mentioned Lowery prompted tips about Lowery.
Lowery’s sister tells the Jackson Hole News & Guide he was “a sweet, sweet kid.”
