Breaking news: new developments in the hunt for suspect Brian Laundrie, wanted in the murder of Gabby Petito. Dog the Bounty Hunter claims he found a “fresh campsite” clue. Plus, the FBI checks out AT&T store, the fight, and more.
Dog the Bounty Hunter–whose real name is Duane Chapman–said he has “snagged a fresh bite”, reportedly finding a “fresh campsite” at Shell Island, a Florida island park, the Daily Wire reported.
Chapman and his team found a fresh can of Monster Energy Ultra Gold in the park, showing no faded colors or rust while tracking 23-year-old fugitive Brian Laundrie. He is suspected of the murder of his fiancée Gabby Petito, the New York Post reported.
However, Chapman’s team found no conclusive evidence that Laundrie was still on Egmont Key, Fox reported.
On the same day authorities declared Brian Laundrie to be a person of interest in the case of the then-missing Gabby Petito, eyewitnesses claim to have seen him buying a cell phone at an AT&T store near the family’s home in North Port, which is also the same day he was allegedly lasting by his family, the Daily Wire reported.
The attorney for the Laundrie family, Steven Bertolino, told TMZ that a new phone was bought at the store, but said the phone is reportedly the same one that the FBI already has in its possession.”
The Deseret News reported: “FBI agents visited an AT&T store near Laundrie’s family home in North Port, Florida, to look at any surveillance footage.”
Roberta Laundrie, the mother of fugitive Brian, made reservations for two at the Fort De Soto Park Campground in St. Petersburg between Sept. 1 and 3, but changed them on Aug. 31 for three people for the weekend of Sept. 6-8, according to documents obtained by Fox News.
The Florida park is about a 75-mile drive north of the family’s home, the New York Post reported.
Dog the Bounty Hunter said he learned Laundrie’s parents spent the night in Fort De Soto Park with Brian twice in early September from Sept. 1 to 3 and Sept. 6 to 8.
However, an attorney for the Laundries originally dismissed Dog’s claims, but he later told local media that “the family camped out on Sept. 6 and 7 and that ‘they all left the park.'”
in the midst of the media circus that has erupted around the family home of Brian Laundrie, tensions boiled over as a neighbor fought with the protester for allegedly trespassing on his property in New Port, Florida, Fox reported.
Two protesters with megaphones who have yelled at the Laundrie family home for the past few days from morning to evening reached a boiling point, as a neighbor came out of his house and appeared to push a male protester.
“You can sit here all you want with your megaphone,” the neighbor allegedly told the protester. He threatened violence if they returned to his property.
The protester allegedly threatened to call 911.
The neighbor then pulled out a cell phone to capture proof the protester came on his property before walking away.
According to North Port Police Department, they arrested the neighbor later in the evening and charged him with battery.
