RELATED VIDEO: Brian Laundry’s Search Intensifies
A hiker claims to have witnessed Brian Laundry, the boyfriend of 22-year-old travel blogger Gabby Pettito, whose death was ruled a murder by authorities in a case that gripped the US.
Dennis Davis, a Florida engineer, said he believed he spoke with Mr Laundry on a road near the Appalachian Trail in North Carolina – close to the border with Tennessee.
“There’s no doubt in my mind that I spoke to Brian Laundry – nothing,” he added New York Post.
Mr Laundry, who was sought by police in connection with his death during his cross-country road trip, was charged last week with fraud using his bank debit card.
The couple began their journey in their van in June, posting the video on social media.
A search warrant was issued for Mr. Laundry, 23, after a grand jury in Wyoming indicted him on the same count of illegally using the card and Ms. Petito’s personal identification number. His death was not charged.
Hiker Claims He’s Seen Brian Laundry
A Florida man claims to have spoken with Brian Laundry on a deserted street near the Appalachian Trail in North Carolina.
Engineer Denise Davis, 53, said that “there was no doubt in my mind” that he had seen Gabby Petito’s boyfriend.
“Dog the Bounty Hunter’s daughter sent me an audio file of Brian’s voice and the voice was exactly what I heard,” he told the New York Post.
“He said ‘Man, I’m lost.’ I said ‘What are you trying to find?’ And he said ‘My girlfriend and I got into a fight but she called me, told me she loved me, and I had to go to California to see her.’
“I said ‘Okay, I-40 is right there and you can take it west to California’ and he said, ‘I’m going to take this road to California’.
“He was worried and didn’t understand.”
