Just a little over 24 hours after the FBI confirmed the remains found in the Carlton Reserve were identified as Gabby Petito’s missing boyfriend, Brian Laundrie, it has been revealed that authorities actually installed surveillance around the Laundrie family home.
In a new Twitter post, News National Now correspondent Brian Entin reveals a video that shows multiple cameras near the Laundrie family’s home. “One of the things I held off on reporting. But now will because Brian Laundrie is confirmed dead. Police installed hidden cameras around the house. Including this camera in a neighbor’s yard behind the house. This particular camera was installed after Brian went missing.”
Entin also revealed that the North Port Police talked to him about the cameras near the Laundrie’s home. “They say there are other cameras that went up sooner — before Brian disappeared.”
Entin previously confirmed that the notebook near Brian Laundrie’s remains is salvageable. The authorities also noted they believe is purely a coincidence that the Laudnrie found the 23-year-old’s personal items at the reserve. “Police never followed Brian in the Mustang when he went to the reserve. “Also, they are disputing Laundrie attorney Steven Bertolino’s timeline about when he told police Brian was missing.”
Brian Laundrie went missing on September 13th after reportedly going on a hiking trip in the Carlton Reserve. This was days before the remains of Gabby were found in the Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming. The former couple set out on a cross-country road trip earlier in the summer. Laundrie returned at the beginning of September without Petito. He refused to speak to anyone about her whereabouts.
Laundrie’s Attorney Confirms that FBI Has Everything They Need For Gabby Petito Case
During an interview with Fox News Digital, the Laundrie family’s attorney, Steven Bertolino, confirms that the FBI now has everything they need in regards to the Gabby Petito murder investigation.
The lawyer also shares that he spoke to Brian Laundrie on September 12th and 13th right before he left to go for a hike. Although he previously stated that Laundrie was grieving and upset right before the hike, Bertolino now says that he used the wrong term. But he could have used a better choice of words.
“I still stand by that Brian was upset. He was out of sorts,” the Laundrie family lawyer states. “At the time, Chris said, ‘I couldn’t stop him. He was going.’ And that seems to be something that we wished he didn’t do.”
Meanwhile, Bertolino explains that along with Petito’s disappearance, a lot of things were happening around the Laundrie’s home. “They were getting phone calls over the weekend. He needed to get out and clear his head.”
In regards to why neither he nor the Laundries followed up with authorities about Brian’s whereabouts, Bertolino added that blame “could go on either sides.” The lawyer has also cleared the air between him, the North Port Police Department, and the FBI.
