FBI Calls Petito Death ‘Murder’ Following Recovery Of Laundrie Notebook, Backpack

FBI Calls Petito Death ‘Murder’ Following Recovery Of Laundrie Notebook, Backpack

 Police tape restricts access to Myakkahatchee Creek Environmental Park on October 20, 2021 in North Port, Florida.

After finding possessions, such as a notebook, belonging to Brian Laundrie and possibly his remains, the FBI on Wednesday said that the 23-year-old is a person of interest in the murder case of his girlfriend Gabby Petito.

Last month, Laundrie was named a person of interest in the homicide of Petito.Fox News reported that the FBI confirmed to reporters that investigators found “personal items, such as a backpack and notebook belonging to Brian Laundrie.”

Petito was reported missing more than a month ago. As the search for the travel blogger intensified, Laundrie was reported missing, too.

The 23-year-old was named a “person of interest” in the case and his family home was raided by the FBI and reportedly declared a “crime scene.” An arrest warrant was issued for Laundrie on September 23, not for Petito’s death but for allegedly using stolen bank cards.

It’s unclear when Petito was last seen, but a couple came forward in late September claiming they witnessed Petito and Laundrie having a “full-blown incident” at a Jackson Hole, Wyoming, restaurant. The Daily Wire reported:

Nina Celie Angelo and boyfriend Matthew England said they saw an “agitated” Laundrie arguing with a waitress at Tex-Mex restaurant Merry Piglets between 1 and 2 p.m. Petito and Laundrie were eventually “kicked out of the restaurant,” Angelo said via social media.

Merry Piglets confirmed on Instagram that the pair were indeed at the spot on August 27. “Yes, we can confirm Gabby and Brian were in Merry Piglets…We have already notified the FBI and they are aware. We are letting them do their jobs and we are respecting Gabby’s family and have nothing further to comment,” the restaurant said.

… Angelo believes Laundrie was arguing over the bill or money more generally. “She described his body language as ‘aggressive’ and said he left and returned about four times,” the report noted, adding, “Petito came inside and apologized for Laundrie’s behavior” at one point and “looked visibly upset.”
