by Samantha Whidden

As law enforcement continues to search for Gabby Petito’s fiancee Brian Laundrie, reality TV star Dog the Bounty Hunter is now sharing how he would be tracking down the missing 23-year-old male. 

While discussing the Gabby Petito Case with Newsweek, Dog the Bounty Hunter advised law enforcement to look more into Laundrie’s record. “We need to see what his background is, as far as domestic violence or anything else.”

Gabby Petito’s fiance is currently a person of interest in the disappearance and now the murder of the 22-year-old Florida resident. Dog the Bounty Hunter also told the media outlet that a lot of circumstances point towards Gabby Petito’s finance as being the defendant in the case.

“To look at the case, so far, I haven’t got any inside info yet,” the bounty hunter explained.

While also chatting with Newsweek, Dog the Bounty Hunter revealed that in order for him to find Gabby Petito’s fiance, he would need to learn more about Laundrie’s background. He also looked back on the 23-year-old’s actions. “He went straight home to tell his parents what happened. And then he took off. So we got to look at his background.”

Dog the Bounty Hunter also stated that Gabby Petito’s fiance is obviously not an experienced runner or criminal. The experienced bounty hunter also said that suicide is a very likely possibility for Laundrie. “And it seems like he’s kind of an outdoors kid.”

The bounty hunter further explained that when he searches for people, they usually end up not far away, but closer to home. “A lot of times they say he’s out of state. When he’s right there in his hometown, you know,” he said.

The reality TV star goes on to add that law enforcement needs to start with Laundries friends and family members. “Find out where are they gone? When’s the last time they saw him? What kind of vehicle is he in? There’s all kinds of ways to track that vehicle.”

What Happened To Gabby Petito?

Gabby Petito was filed as a missing person on September 11th. She and Laundrie were on a cross-country road trip since June 2021. The 22-year-old last spoke to her parents on August 25th, just a couple of weeks after she and Laundrie were questioned by police about a domestic dispute, which resulted in Petito allegedly slapping Laundrie numerous times. No charges were filed at the time of the incident.

Gabby Petito’s body was recovered on Sunday in the Grand Teton National Park. Her death has been ruled as a homicide by the FBI. After Laundrie refused to answer any questions from law enforcement about Petio’s disappearance, he also went missing on the 14th.
