The submitted claim stated, "The basis for the claim is possession or control of personal property of Gabby Petito. The amount of the claim is unknown and is both now due and will become due on the release of personal property."

"The claim is contingent or unliquidated because it is unknown if the decedent's final photos, videos and words are contained in the property," the filing read.
