GABBY Petito's friend said she fears Brian Laundrie may "try to hurt" her if he is about to get captured by authorities.
During a TikTok Live session, Gabby's pal, Rose Davis, said that she did worry about what the fugitive would do if he became desperate.
"I don't have a fear that he'll come after me … but I do fear that if he's about to get caught … then maybe there's a possibility he'd try to hurt me," Davis said.
She added: "I just don't think he's that stupid."
While Davis did clear up some confusion about the condo that Gabby and Laundrie were living in before they embarked on their cross-country road trip this summer, she mostly steered clear of answering questions about Laundrie.
"I don't really want to talk about Brian because when this goes to trial we need all our ducks in a line," she explained.
During the live session, she also revealed the struggle of being thrust into the public eye, including having to deal with a stalker.
Davis also assured commenters that she was confident in the law enforcement officers handling Gabby's case.
"The FBI is doing their job," she said, suggesting that there were aspects about the case that could not yet be made public.
Davis is Gabby's friend who was planning to meet up with the couple at some point during their road trip.

She spoke about the plans briefly during the live session, noting she was expecting a call from Gabby on her birthday, August 29.
"We made plans for after my birthday to go to Yellowstone," Davis explained. "…but when you're living van life, you can't always have a set plan.
"So, she was gonna call me on my birthday … but she did not call me on my birthday."
She said she wasn't initially worried about the missed phone date because things naturally pop up during a cross-country road trip.
WHEN DID GABBY GO MISSING?
Petito's family last heard from her during the final week of August.
They believed that she was in the area of Grand Teton National Park.
They received a text from her phone on August 30, but the family do not believe the message was from Gabby.
Laundrie returned alone to the couple's home in North Port, Florida, on September 1.
Gabby was officially reported missing 10 days later on September 11.
Less than a week later, Laundrie's parents told police that he had also vanished — and they had not seen him since September 14. He has not been seen since.
Gabby's body was found in Grand Teton National park on September 19.
On September 21, the Teton County Coroner Dr. Brent Blue confirmed that she died as a result of a homicide.
This week, the official autopsy report was released by Teton County, revealing that Gabby's cause of death was strangulation.
Special Agent Michael Schneider issued a statement after, asking for anyone with information on where Laundrie is to contact the FBI immediately.
Meanwhile, a friend of Laundrie's told The Sun that the fugitive had plans of living outside the US since high school and revealed the countries he may try to escape to — including South Africa and New Zealand.
