The case of missing New York woman Gabby Petito has taken a number of wild turns over the last week, as the nation watches in bewilderment.
Petito and her fiancé, Brian Laundrie, were on a cross-country van trip when the young woman went missing – unbeknownst to anyone at the time. Laundrie soon returned home to Florida, sans Gabby, and proceeded to refuse to cooperate with authorities in her disappearance.
Then, unforgivably, Laundrie himself was allowed to disappear from his parents’ home after telling them that he was going “hiking” in a nearby wildlife preserve.
With Brian still missing, Gabby’s body was presumed to be found, (with confirmation likely coming during a Tuesday autopsy), triggering the FBI to raid the Laundrie home.
Now, a lawyer for the Laundrie family is making a sudden change of plans.
The lawyer representing the family of Brian Laundrie said he’s no longer holding a press conference Tuesday after speaking with the FBI, severaloutlets reported.
The press conference had been scheduled for 1 p.m. on Long Island, New York. The lawyer, Steven Bertolino, did not give any more details on the cancellation or his communication with the FBI.
The FBI searched Laundrie’s home in North Port, Florida, on Monday.
Authorities have named Laundrie, who has been missing since last Tuesday, a person of interest in the disappearance of his 22-year-old fiancée, Gabby Petito. The two traveled together on a road trip in August, but Laundrie returned to his family home on September 1 without her. Petito’s family reported her missing September 11.
The case has captivated the nation, with many believing that Laundrie’s refusal to cooperate, (and his parents’ unwillingness to help), indicates that some guilt exists within that bubble.
Police have reconvened at the wildlife preserve on Tuesday, after suspending their search of the alligator-infested location on Monday.
