Doug the Bounty Hunter, who is on his quest to locate the absconding boyfriend of deceased YouTuber Gabby Pettito, has said that the best decision for Brian Laundry now would be to turn himself in.
Wyoming officials confirmed Tuesday that Petito’s cause of death was strangulation. The remains of the 22-year-old social media personality were discovered on September 19 in Wyoming’s Grand Teton National Park after a week-long nationwide search.
Mr. Laundry has been named a person of interest in the case.
Teton County Coroner Dr. Brent Blue revealed that Petito died three to four weeks before his body was discovered. The coroner said Tuesday that under Wyoming state law he could only state the manner and cause of death. All other details related to the autopsy are not open to the public.
The American TV personality, whose original name is Duane Lee Chapman, said the coroner’s statement “set up a timeline that looks worse for Brian Laundry.”
“His relentless evasion of law enforcement makes him feel guilty,” he said. Sun. “I can’t understand how Brian’s parents can keep up with themselves, how they have stoned the Petito family. They need to do more to signal Brian to stop running. “
Mr Chapman speculated on Monday that Mr Laundry’s parents encouraged him to return to the family’s North Port home in Florida after Pettito’s death, even though they have no evidence to support their claims. .
After a week-long investigation, Mr. Chapman returned to Colorado earlier this week after suffering an ankle injury.
Petito and Mr. Laundry were on a two-month-long cross-country road trip to the United States. However, on September 1, he returned to his family’s home. After Pettito’s family was unable to contact their daughter for several days, she was declared missing on September 11.
The couple had hit a rough patch during their travels and were embroiled in an altercation in August, after which the couple had to be separated for a night in Utah by police.
Mr. Laundry has been non-cooperative throughout the investigation into this matter.
His family reported him missing on September 17 because they had not heard of him since September 14, when he went for a “huge and unforgiving” hike to the 24,565-acre Carlton Reserve. Since then, the police have launched an operation to trace the absconding man in the crocodile-infested nature reserve.
