North Port, Fla. – When protesters left several baskets of laundry in the front yard of Brian Laundry’s home in North Port, his parents came out overnight to remove them.
In exclusive video obtained by Granthshala News, Brian’s parents were seen on Sunday night cleaning the front lawn of white laundry bins that were left there in an apparent protest. He also removed a tribute poster dedicated to Gabby Petito.
He also received a package in his mailbox. At one point, the father said, “Just let me do it.”
The home in Sarasota County has been the focus of media attention in the weeks since Gabby’s disappearance. In addition to being the only person interested in his case, Brian is wanted on federal bank fraud charges.
The Laundry family has faced public scrutiny over claims they may know more about their son’s whereabouts than they are giving. Last Thursday, Brian’s father, Chris spent three hours with investigators at Mayakahatchi Creek Environmental Park, where the family thinks Brian was going before he disappeared.
Via text messages, Chris Laundry’s attorney, Steven Bertolino, said Chris was asked to show him law enforcement trails and places his son was frequently known to. He said that Chris and his wife had verbally provided those details to the FBI, but it was thought that on-site assistance might have been better.
“It’s interesting, it’s a little confusing. Always, in a case like this, whether it’s a search for a missing person or a suspect, initially you want to include the family,” explained Ed Hartnett, Edmund. Founder of Hartnett Risk Management and a retired NYPD deputy chief with 32 years of law enforcement experience.
Hartnett says that law enforcement would welcome help, but notes that the Laundries did not help locate Gabby Petito, Brian’s fiancée, who went missing and later Gabby after Brian returned from Wyoming to Florida. was found dead driving the van.
Investigators are still asking the public Help Brian locate you. They say he is a white male, 5 foot-8 and weighs 160 pounds. She has brown eyes, very short brown hair, cropped facial hair, and was last seen wearing a hiking bag with a waist strap.
Anyone with information is asked to call 1-800-CALL-FBI.
