Worst ending to tv series since the Sopranos. 

Ho Hum

Depends if he killed himself and how, or if an alligator or snake, or starvation, or something else killed him.  Actually I'm glad this story is over.

Makes you wonder how many bodies are scattered about the oceans without anyone having a clue.

Have his parents come out yet to declare "he was always such a good boy, he never hurt nobody....."?

You're saying her story in unique?

Can you name another scenario where two barely-adult people are traveling cross-country in a van, one of them simply returns home without the other, offers no explanation, missing girl’s parents wait 10 days to report and the one who is alive disappears without ever speaking to police— who don’t even know he’s gone until 3 days have passed?

I can tell you about quite a few.  I know for a fact that my family members and friends (who are police officers and child service workers), can tell you a lot more than I can and give you much greater detail.  But for some reason, and @edjr is right on this - that they're all not pretty little blonde girls, the media doesn't mention them.  Now, are those scenario's exactly the same, no... but they're close enough.  For example, brother and sister go out of state to a wedding, only the brother comes back.  After 4 days, brother goes missing and no one has heard from either since (3 years now).  Another was a husband and wife go away for a 4-day weekend, wife comes back alone.  Two weeks went by before they found his body.  Wife is in prison now.  I've heard plenty of stories like that.

Just go look up missing person's reports.  Willing to bet you find TONS of scenario's very similar to Petito's.  There's even a tv show, called Unsolved Mysteries, that has tons of examples like this, that were never a media sensation, until they appeared on the show some 5, 10, even 20 years after the fact.

Anyone think it's possible they were able to fake his death and he's still alive somewhere?

I think so. There was a movie years back called Teenage Dirtbag that delved into that topic. But yeah, I think there is likely a way to do just this....

I would have loved it if there was a note nailed to a tree next to the body saying "I didn't kill Gabby, I ran to save my own life as the killer was after me too. I know who the killer is. It was someone I thought I could trust in life. Their name is... (rest of the paper was torn off).

:lol:

Blah blah blah. I’m very well aware of all you mentioned and described.  True Crime is my main genre.  Doesn’t change My previous answer to your question.  Those unusual details, NOT RACE, explain the public interest.  Even if race was the explanation, so what?  What’s the point or purpose behind arguing that?

 If you wanna talk about stories that don’t get much play, and I’d be happy to do that, the widespread corruption of PD detectives is way more compelling.

Sounds good.  Glad you're enthralled with this nonsense.
