VIDEO footage shows two people beating on the door of the home of Brian Laundrie’s parents and shouting “you guys like to strangle people” and “dirty Laundries.”
In the footage, taken just after 8:30pm in the Laundries’ North Port neighborhood, the pair can be seen peering in the house’s front windows, while one person records on a phone.
“You guys like to strangle people with your little b***h a** son. It’s time to wake up and face the consequences,” one can be heard saying.
As the pair walk away, one shouts, “we’ll be back,” adding “better speak up soon.”
After they leave, Christopher Laundrie comes to the door briefly before police arrive, Stephanie Pagones reports for Fox News.
Following the release, the Laundrie family’s attorney released a statement, reading: “Gabby Petito’s death at such a young age is a tragedy.
“While Brian Laundrie is currently charged with the unauthorized use of a debit card belonging to Gabby, Brian is only considered a person of interest in relation to Gabby Petito’s demise.
“At this time Brian is still missing and when he is located we will address the pending fraud charge against him.”
Gabby’s mom, Nicole Schmidt, slammed the comment, fuming: “His words are garbage. Keep talking.”
Brian has been missing since September 13, after he allegedly told his parents he was going for a hike in the Carlton Reserve.
He is wanted for questioning as a person of interest in the death of Gabby Petito, but has not been charged in relation to the murder.
A warrant was issued for Brian’s arrest on September 24 after a grand jury charged him with misuse of a bank card that was later revealed to be Gabby’s.
Gabby was last seen in a restaurant in Wyoming with Brian on August 27 during the couple’s road trip to Grand Teton National Park.
Police camera footage shows Utah officers pulling over the pair’s van in response to a domestic violence complaint after a 911 caller said he saw Brian slapping Gabby in front of a local restaurant.
In the video, first released last month, a tearful Gabby recalls the clash, explaining that their morning had been “stressful.”
She tells officers that she had apologized to Brian for the behavioral effects of her OCD.
Gabby alleged that Laundrie had grabbed her face, left a “burning” gash on her cheek and red marks on her arm as cops notice some bruises.
She told cops: “Well, he like grabbed me, like, with his nail, and I guess that’s why it hurts. I definitely have a cut. Like, I can feel it.”
Brian remained comparatively calm, telling police: “She (Gabby) gets really worked up, and when she does she swings and she had her cell phone in her hand. So I was just trying to push her away.”
On September 1, Brian returned home to Florida in Gabby’s van alone and hired a lawyer.
Gabby was then reported missing by her mother on September 11.
