Unfortunately, the results have not been what we wanted them to be.
Too bad Brian Laundie, Dog the Bounty Hunter is in the case and puts together clues and follows clues in what he hopes will end up capturing Laundrie so the whole story of what happened to Gabby Petito can be solved. Dog is on the hunt and we can imagine time running out for Brian Laundrie.
Gabby Petito tragedy
It’s officially a month ago that twenty-two-year-old Gabby Potato was first reported missing, only to be found dead shortly afterwards in an act of violence as sad as it is angry. The primary suspect is her boyfriend, Brian Laundrie, who was famously seen during a split police interaction when both he and Gabby Petito were pulled over after a worried citizen saw the couple fight.
The caller reported to police that they had seen Laundrie slap Petitio, forcing police to investigate the situation themselves and recording every second of it via body cameras. In the video, we see and hear the police address the physical injury to both Petitio and Laundrie, with Petitio crying and clearly in some distress. Unfortunately, the police struggled to see the signs and eventually let the couple go their day.
Petito’s body was found shortly after the incident on September 21, 2021, and it was confirmed as Gabby’s body a few days later. Now, with Brian Laundrie as the primary suspect, a nationwide hunt was officially launched in Florida, where Brian is still suspected to be as the media keeps an eye on his family’s home thanks to the supportive and business neighbors seeking answers like the rest of the world.
The hunt is on
Nearly a month of searching for Brian Laundrie, and still Florida police say there are no signs of the missing girlfriend. The search is centered in the Carlton Nature Reserve near his home in North Port, where Laundrie’s parents believe he left before disappearing. As the search for Gabby Petito’s fiancé approaches its fourth week, there was no police activity on Friday in the 25,000-acre nature reserve.
New details emerged about the period after Laundrie returned home from a cross-country ride in Petito’s white van, without Petito, on September 1, and before leaving his parents’ home on September 13. Petito’s family refers to Laundrie as the “missing piece of the puzzle” about what really happened to their daughter, while Laundrie’s family just hopes their son is still alive.
Of course, many close to the case have argued that if Brian Laundrie really hides in this nature reserve, he will survive “hell on earth” given the dangerous wildlife lurking among those acres. Similarly, Laundrie’s case became so nationwide that even the former reality star Dog the bounty hunter joined the search, and recently he found a campsite that he believes was Laundrie.
Duane “Dog” Chapman, who has been working to confirm a tip about a recent Laundrie sighting near the Appalachian Trail, handed over some items found on one of the islands near Fort De Soto Park, according to his publicist. “Tracking a refugee is a marathon, not a sprint,” Dog said. “We continue to search for Brian Laundrie. The longer he is on the run, the more dangerous it becomes. ”
