Brian Laundrie – Update: Boyfriend Claims Gabby Petito’s Fiancé May Have The Resources To Leave The US Illegally

Watch live as the coroner reports on Gabby Petito’s autopsy

As the search for Brian Laundrie goes into day 30, a longtime friend said it was possible he had the funds to leave the United States illegally.

The friend, who had known Mr. Laundrie from an early age, told the story The sun that Brian was a good planner who could execute his plans precisely.

“I think he could get the resources together to leave the country, either illegally or under some sort of fake ID,” said the friend.

Meanwhile, the North Port Police reported that they had not found any new evidence of Mr. Laundrie’s whereabouts on the Carlton reservation on Friday. Police and FBI have been searching the 25,000-acre nature reserve where Mr Laundrie reportedly hiked alone since Jan.

Authorities previously said there is a 50 percent chance that Mr Laundrie is still alive.

Freund claims Brian Laundrie may have the resources to leave the US illegally

A longtime friend of Brian Laundrie’s has said it is possible that he had the means to leave the United States illegally.

The friend, who had known Mr. Laundrie from an early age, told the story The sun that Brian was a good planner who could execute his plans precisely.

“I think he could get the resources together to leave the country, either illegally or under some sort of fake ID,” said the friend.

“He’s the kind of person who would be able to drop anything to make sure he wasn’t captured and avoid arrest or prosecution for an apparently pending crime.”

The friend also said that Mr Laundrie had spoken about New Zealand many times and that if he had the means he would likely try to reach the oceanic country.

“I’m sure if he had the time and resources in a few years and he really had to get away from this problem, he would probably end up there,” a friend of Mr. Laundrie told the newspaper.

The battle for a restaurant in Wyoming is key to Petito’s fate, says the FBI behavioral analyst

The altercation between Gabby Petito and Brian Laundrie, which was spotted near the Merry Piglets Tex-Mex restaurant in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, in late August, could be key to Ms. Petito’s death, a behavioral analyst said.

Dr. Ann Wolbert Burgess, pioneer of the FBI’s Behavioral Science Unit, told Fox News Digital, “The restaurant incident … is the second and most important” of two events that raised red flags prior to the 22-year-old’s death.

Nina Celie Angelo, a witness to the incident, said she believed Mr. Laundrie had argued with staff about the bill and described his body language as “aggressive”. At one point Ms. Angelo said that Ms. Petito apologized for his behavior.

“The way she apologizes for his behavior is kind of characteristic and that probably makes him even more angry because he wants to act a certain way,” said Dr. Burgess.

Dr. Burgess added that the other incident that indicated serious problems in their relationship was the fight between Ms. Petito and Mr. Laundrie, which police were called to on August 12 in Moab, Utah.

Petito case still years away from a cold, says the crime scene investigator

Sheryl McCollum, a crime scene investigator and director of the Cold Case Investigative Research Institute, said the Petito case was far from getting cold.

“If this is a cold case … it’s a department by department definition, but generally people accept three to five years with no new evidence, no new evidence, no new nothing (until it gets cold). and that’s far from where we are, ”she told CNN.

“That is not the case here at all. Local departments where they believe there has been a sighting usually keep that person on the forefront of their minds for years, ”she added.

The memorial bench is to be erected in front of North Port City Hall

A memorial bench for Gabby Petito will be erected in front of North Port City Hall, where an improvised memorial for the murdered 22-year-old was up until the beginning of this week, the city has confirmed.

The three-person bench will be made of steel and will be bright, colorful and inviting, Fox 7 News reported.

Aaron Betzner, bank designer and owner of A Squared Fabrication metalworking company, said he wanted to help when he heard that a memorial to Ms. Petito would become permanent.

He told the point of sale that he was working with a member of the Petito family to make sure the final piece was in line with the family’s vision for the memorial.

“Butterflies were the biggest and number one biggest thing,” said Mr Betzner, confirming that the bank would contain 15 butterflies, in addition to features that should attract the beautiful winged insect.

He added that the bank would be “some kind of little haven” where people “could come and sit, think about their own lives, think about Gabby”.

The final version will be white with colorful butterflies. Delivery is expected at the end of November.

Why did the authorities conduct “training drills” on Friday at the Carlton Reserve?

Officers participating in a training activity for a “Special Response Team” were seen on Friday as they entered the Carlton Reserve armed with rifles.

Former FBI agent Dennis Franks told NewsNation Now that he found the training “interesting, but not necessarily unusual,” adding that it might even be an economic vehicle to continue the search.

“If you spend a lot of resources on something, you have to put a lot of money and resources into it. It wouldn’t be uncommon to include training at the same time, ”he said.

He added that the training could have been planned in advance and those in charge decided to conduct the training in the reserve to aid the ongoing search.

Mr. Franks suggested that the FBI and North Port Police likely had additional information that is not publicly shared and that has focused their investigative efforts on the reserve.
