During a recent interview with The Sun, Dog the Bounty Hunter proclaimed that Laundrie “of course” murdered Petito. “I think he called the mom and dad right from the scene and said, ‘OMG.’”
Dog the Bounty Hunter then noted Petito and Laundrie had lived with the missing 23-year-old’s parents for nearly two years. He also said the house isn’t huge, so the parents had to have heard Petito screaming. Dog speculated, “I think he said, ‘Mom, she was screaming. She was screaming so I put my hand over her mouth. And I helped my hand and she was screaming. When I took it away, she wasn’t breathing. And I tried CPR.’”
The reality TV star goes on to claim that Laundrie’s parents may have advised the 23-year-old to return home. The Laundrie’s attorney, Steven Bertolino, also told the media outlet that the couple will not be commenting on the claims that Dog has made.
Dog the Bounty Hunter Reveals Why Brian Laundrie Would Want to Return Home
Also during a recent interview with The Sun, Dog the Bounty Hunter said there’s a reason why Brian Laundrie would want to return home in Florida instead of Wyoming if something did happen between the 23-year-old and Gabby Petito.
“If it had been an accident like that, the parents would have said, ‘Listen, this is Wyoming,” Dog explaining. The reality TV star also said that Wyoming is one of the only states that still have the death penalty. “The only stance is the death penalty. It’s not a judge it goes to a jury.”
Dog then admitted he doesn’t think a jury would put a man to death if he went to keep his “woman quiet” and suffocated her. “But woe unto him if he did anything else. That jury in Wyoming is going to hang him.”
While commenting on Brian’s father joining in the search, Dog said, “It’s a little too late. Don’t you think? I have heard when [law enforcement] go get a parent… when the son is robbing a bank and they want to negotiate for the kid to come out. So they will get mom and mom talks to the kid.”
Dog also said he’s never heard of the police departments, but he’s sure it wasn’t the FBI that’s taking the “father on the ride-along.” He noted, “They must have some good friends.”
Bertolino has addressed why Brian’s father joined in the search. The relative was asked to point out any favorite trails or spots that Brian may have used in the Carlton Reserve in Sarasota County. “Although Chris and Roberta Laundrie provided this information verbally three weeks ago it is now thought that on-site assistance may be better.”
