Gabby Petito Foundation to re-record Sandy Hook tribute song ‘Irreplaceable’ that featured murdered 22-year-old vlogger

A SANDY Hook tribute song called Irreplaceable is to be re-recorded to raise money for the Gabby Petito Foundation set up after the 22-year-old vlogger was murdered. 

Songwriter Deb Henson said the song had taken on a new meaning because it featured Gabby when she was 14-years-old.

Gabby was reported missing September 11 by her parents after she failed to respond to calls and texts for several days while she and Brian Laundrie visited parks in the West.

Her body was discovered last Sunday in a remote area in northwestern Wyoming while Laundrie, 23, was reported missing on September 17 and remains at large as police continue to scour a 25,000-acre nature reserve in Florida.

In light of the tragedy, Ms Henson, a talent manager based in Nashville, said one of her artists, Gabrielle “Gabby” Mooney, is going to re-record the song

It is hoped it will raise money for the foundation which will be dedicated to finding missing children. 

Henson told the Sun Online: "The lyrics are almost eerie now.

"It's ironic and tragic that she's in this video and that this happened to her."

She said she was inspired to write the song “Irreplaceable” after the “horrific” 2012 school shooting in Newton, Connecticut which claimed the lives of 20 children and six teachers.

Gabby features in the original video drawing under the tree in the video.

Ms Henson said she had been torn watching the video again since Ms Petito went missing late last month.

She said she was also in talks to hold a charity concert in New York for missing children.

In the other developments, Dog the Bounty says Hunter Laundrie could be moving from island to island in a canoe through a Florida park as he evades arrest.

Dog, real name Duane Chapman, revealed on Monday he received a "hot lead" that Brian and his parents went into Fort De Soto Park in early September, and only the parents returned.

Anyone with information about the case is urged to call the FBI's tips line on 1-­800-­CALL-­FBI (225­-5324).
