Gabby Petito Case: Experts Sound Off on Brian Laundrie Garden Bunker Theory

by Jacklyn Krol

Is Brian Laundrie hiding out in a bunker amid the Gabby Petito case?

Social media users have created a theory based on a few video clips shared on TikTok. A drone was able to go over the backyard of Brian’s parents’ home. The couple, Chris and Roberta, were seen gardening in their yard.

Firstly, next to the patches of garden across the yard is something that looks similar to an entrance to a bunker or an ornate display of some sort. When the two see the camera in the sky they quickly flee into their house.

The CEO of Atlas Survival Shelters, Ron Hubbard, spoke to Fox News about the possibility of Brian Laundrie hiding out underground. He said that even with the wet Florida soil, it is easy to create a chamber underground.

“It’s not a problem,” Rising S Company’s Gary Lynch added. “You just have to make them heavy enough that they don’t float out.”

However, when it comes to Brian actually being in a bunker in the backyard, it seems unlikely. Brian being a fugitive for federal bank fraud and a person of interest in his fianceé’s death, would be too easy.

Furthermore, Hubbard said that the chance is “about zero.”

“They would have figured that out by now,” he explained. It’s important to note that police have already completed a search warrant on their land.

Secondly, Lynch said that people have hidden bunkers inside flower beds but that doesn’t seem to be for the Brian Laundrie yard.

“The possibility of having a bunker there, his parents having a bunker, is absolutely 100% plausible,” he admitted. “However, that being said, it didn’t look anything like if a hand came out of the bunker to me.”

Roughly one percent of United States citizens own bunkers to begin with. Some people go as far as to put them in without neighbors knowing and without permits. Reports suggest that Brian fled and went hiking to escape.

“My own opinion is he’s gotten as far away from Florida as he could possibly go,” he added.

How Dog the Bounty Hunter Got Involved With the Brian Laundrie Case

Finally, Dog the Bounty Hunter is on the hunt for Brian Laundrie. He was on his honeymoon in Florida when the case gained media attention. He has been on the hunt ever since. Dog recently had to head home to Colorado after sustaining an ankle injury.

“DOG. Just got an update from Dog the Bounty Hunter’s team. They say he’s headed back to Colorado soon to meet with his doctor after injuring his ankle in the search,” a reporter tweeted. “He’s also raising funds to continue what he calls an ‘expensive search.’”

Although Dog is out of state, he is still on the prowl. He created a local “Florida Team” that will do the ground work. Meanwhile, Dog will be processing leads at home while recovering.
