From the very moment we learned that Brian Laundrie returned home to Florida without Gabby Petito, many Americans began to suggest that something fishy was going on. Of course, Brian and his parents’ refusal to assist investigators in locating Petito only added to our suspicion.
Then, to top it all off, Brian went missing just hours before authorities discovered Petito’s body near a campsite that the two had shared some weeks earlier during their cross-country road trip.
Now, with Florida authorities still hunting for Laundrie is an enormous swamp near his parents’ home, some officers are growing uneasy about the family’s assertions.
Police searching for Brian Laundrie said that there are inconsistencies and “oddness” in the stories told by his parents.
Laundrie, 23, is currently the sole person of interest in the murder of his fiancée Gabby Petito, and he has been missing since September 17.
“What the family has told us is that he drove out to the park and walked out into the woods,” North Port Police spokesperson Josh Taylor told NewsNation.
And that’s not all…
“I don’t necessarily know what to believe anymore. I think it’s certainly possible that they’re expressing what they know, but we’ll see. This is an ongoing investigation that will continue to evolve.”
The interviewer questioned the fact that Laundrie reportedly drove his Mustang to the nature reserve, and his parents reportedly drove it back.
“We’ve said from the beginning there’s a lot of oddness here, a lot of things that just didn’t make sense,” Taylor said.
“I mean your son walks out there, now they’re saying on a Monday, you know, to report that on a Friday, and then be confused on what day that was. I mean there are a lot of things that are odd there.”
We’re certain that the legions of internet sleuths seeking justice for Gabby Petito would agree.
