10 a.m., Oct. 28: MEMORIAL TO GABBY PETITO REMOVED FROM OUTSIDE LAUNDRIE HOME

Officials from the city of North Port, Florida, removed a makeshift memorial to Gabby Petito from outside the home of Brian Laundrie’s family on Wednesday night.

City spokesman Josh Taylor on Thursday told Fox News that the memorial—which included signs, flowers, stuffed animals and other items—was removed ahead of severe weather. He said the city had “received several complaints about signs” on the Laundrie’s street.

“Per City Sign Code and storm water code, these signs are in violation and are not allowed in the road right-of-way,” Taylor said.
