A search warrant filed by Florida law enforcement agencies last week to search Brian Laundrie's computer indicated the emergence of "mounting tension" between Gabby Petito and Laundrie in texts and telephone conversations between Petito and her mother, Nichole Schmidt.
"During the trip, the person sent several text messages and had many conversations with her mother, Nichole Schmidt, via cell phone," the warrant said. "During these conversations, there seemed to be increasing tension between her and Laundrie."

The warrant was filed by the North Port Police Department after Laundrie was named a Person of Interest after the disappearance of his 22-year-old fiancée Gabby Petito in late August while they were on a trip across the country.
The Florida police arrest warrant adds that Schmidt said she had received "strange texts" from Petito, including the last one on April 27 that someone else might have used Petito's phone.
The tenor of the news, and later Petito's lack of communication, prompted her mother to contact the authorities, according to the arrest warrant.
The warrant was filed to gain access to Laundrie's computers and electronic equipment.
Separately, on Monday the FBI carried out a warrant to search the home of Laundrie's family in North Port, Florida, declaring the site a crime scene.
"The FBI is today executing a court-approved search warrant of the North Port, FL laundry facility relevant to the investigation into Gabrielle" Gabby "Petito," the FBI office in Tampa said in a tweet.
The Laundrie family home was declared a crime scene in Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming the day after a body that could be Petito was found. An autopsy will be performed on Tuesday, September 21st, to determine if this is Petito.
