Brian Laundrie biography: 13 things about Gabby Petito’s boyfriend from North Port, Florida

Advertisements

Brian Laundrie was a white man from Florida, United States. He is Christopher John “Chris” Laundrie and Roberta Maria Vinci Laundrie‘s son and Cassandra “Cassie” Laundrie‘s brother.

Brian lived with his parents in North Port, Florida. He met Joseph “Joe” Petito and Nicole Schmidt‘s daughter Gabrielle “Gabby” Petito in Bayport-Blue Point High School in Bayport, Town of Islip, Suffolk County, New York, USA.

A self-described nature enthusiast, Brian wrote in his Instagram bio that he believed that bug bites are better than being brainwashed by the media. Here are 13 more things about him:

  1. When he started dating Gabby in 2019, she moved with him in his family home in North Port. (a)(b)
  2. In July 2020, he proposed to Gabby and she said yes. In the same month, he hiked in Colorado, USA. (c)(d)
  3. On October 28, 2020, he took to Instagram to share photos of him and Gabby with a caption, “Never got around to posting these! I’d die just to watch all of our memories on repeat, never loved anyone as much as this girl.” (d)
  4. In April 2021, he and Gabby visited Blood Mountain in Georgia, USA. (d)
  5. On June 17, 2021, he and Gabby went to her hometown Blue Point, Suffolk County to attend her brother’s high school graduation. (a)(e)(f)
  6. On July 2, 2021, he and Gabby left from Blue Point for their cross-country camping trip. The couple travelled across the U.S. in her white 2012 Ford Transit van with a Florida license plate and spent time in Colorado and Utah, USA. (a)(b)(e)
  7. On August 12, 2021, a witness saw him and Gabby arguing over a phone while her 2012 Ford Transit van was parked near Moonflower Community Cooperative in Moab, Utah. The responding Moab City Police Department officers determined that insufficient evidence existed to justify criminal charges. He told one of the officers that Gabby tried to slap him because she thought he was going to leave her in Moab without a ride. That night, he stayed in a hotel while Gabby stayed with her van. (g)
  8. On August 17, 2021, he took a commercial airline flight from Salt Lake City, Utah to Tampa, Florida and on August 23, 2021, he took a return flight to Salt Lake City to rejoin Gabby, his family’s attorney Steven Bertolino said on October 5, 2021. On August 24, 2021, he and Gabby left Salt Lake City for Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming, USA. On August 25, 2021, her 2012 Ford Transit van was spotted at the park. (a)(b)(h)
  9. On August 29, 2021, he was hitchhiking in Colter Bay, Wyoming when he was picked up by Miranda Baker and her boyfriend and he offered to pay $200 for the ride before getting in the car, according to Baker. Less than 30 minutes after being picked up, he got out near the Jackson Dam near Alta, Wyoming. (i) 
  10. Between August 30, 2021 and September 1, 2021, he allegedly used a Capital One Bank debit card and personal identification number for accounts that did not belong to him for charges over $1,000. On September 1, 2021, he drove Gabby’s 2012 Ford Transit van back to North Port and stopped by his sister Cassie’s home. On September 10, 2021, the van was recovered at his family’s home. He stayed in Fort De Soto Park in Pinellas County, Florida from September 1-3, 2021 and from September 6-8, 2021, according to a tip Duane “Dog the Bounty Hunter” Chapman received on September 27, 2021. Cassie joined the family at the campground for a day on September 6, 2021, according to Bertolino. On September 11, 2021, Schmidt reported Gabby missing to the Suffolk County Police Department. (a)(b)(e)(g)(i)(j)(k)
  11. After Gabby was reported missing on September 11, 2021, he hired an attorney and refused to speak publicly about her whereabouts, according to her family. On September 14, 2021, he left their North Port home with a backpack to go to the T. Mabry Carlton Jr. Memorial Reserve near Venice, Florida, according to his parents. On September 15, 2021, the North Port Police Department named him a person of interest in the investigation and said he is not cooperating with authorities. On September 17, 2021, his parents summoned the police to their North Port home and told them that they had not seen him since September 14, 2021. (g)(k)(m)(n)
  12. On September 19, 2021, Gabby was found deceased at the Spread Creek Dispersed Camping Area in the Bridger-Teton National Forest on the east boundary of Grand Teton National Park, which is near the area where Baker and her boyfriend picked her up on August 29, 2021. On September 23, 2021, he was charged with unauthorized use of a debit card and an arrest warrant was issued for him. On September 25, 2021, Chapman announced he was entering the search for him. (i)(l)
  13. On October 5, 2021, his sister Cassie was interviewed on “Good Morning America” and said she does not know where he is and if she did, she would turn him in. On October 21, 2021, a comparison of dental records confirmed that the human remains found on October 20, 2021 at the T. Mabry Carlton, Jr. Memorial Reserve and Myakkahatchee Creek Environmental Park in North Port are those of him. He committed suicide by shooting himself in the head, the District 12 Medical Examiner’s Office in Sarasota confirmed on November 23, 2021. (o)(p)(q)

    • Disagree! My speculation is her non communication with family is intentional on her part for whatever reason. Obviously something occurred which ended their intended destinations and the boyfriend returned home which from what I’ve read was also her home as she had lived in Florida the past two and a half years. Appears the two families aren’t the best of friends but neither is saying anything bad about the other either. The mother has even slammed internet trolls who are focusing on the boyfriend telling them this isn’t about him. The boyfriends attorney made a public statement and I’m certain he has also been in touch with police. The police are saying at this point there is no indication of a crime having been committed. When this is all cleared up I think it will be revealed the disappearance was intentional and the boyfriend is at least in part knowledgeable of whatever is going on in Gabby’s mind if not where she is.

Brian’s parents used his car and the Myakka park as a red herring while they enabled him to run and keep hiding. Another case of parents not teaching their children there are consequences for all of their actions, good and bad. That you need to face up and take responsibility for your own actions and not place blame for decisions you made.

    • cameras in gas stations will show she never got out of the car after a certain point. Obviously he did it as the love of his life is missing, he was probably the last one to see her, and he will somehow claim she fell off a mountain or was alive when he left her. If he had nothing to hide he would be more open. His stance has the police focused on him and he is about to have a very complicated life-until it ends. Oh-and for mom and dad of the perpetrator? That scumbag attorney that you think might get your loser kid off is going to change your style of living. You will go broke defending a non-defensible case. Don’t count on having any friends in the neighborhood and the cops will be watching you and your punk.When the body is found it won’t be more than 48 hours before he never sees the outside of a jail cell.

    • Both seem to be spoiled brats. Go on several cross country trips without any clear source of income? Have your father order uber eats to her location instead of driving to pick up on her own?Gabby and Brian were spotted fighting on August 12 in front of the Moonflower Co-Op, while Kylen Schulte and Crystal Turner went missing on August 13, just a day later. Schulte used to work at Moonflower Co-op as a cashier for four years. After she and her wife were found murdered, the Moonflower community mourned their deaths on social media.

Apparently she worked in a fast-food joint before moving in to live with Brian Laundrie’s family at 18. No mention of Brian ever worked, he lived with his parents pretty well all his life.

  1. Quite strange. I do think he had something to do with her disappearance. How could he not? They were together the whole time. He drove home (clear across many states) without her. He never told anyone she was missing. That is the really suspicious part.

  2. No, she was a popular youtuber. Something happened between both of them and I bet
    he is claiming it was an accident. His parents believe him and hired a lawyer to protect
    him. Reminds of a series I recently watched on showtime. Just a matter of time before
    they have proof. Video from a gas station or someone that saw the van parked.
    Search dogs are very good at tracking as hone in on the location. Brian won’t stay quiet for long.
    He drove over 500 miles knowing what happened to her. Why would he leave a woman
    he supposedly loved ? It had nothing to do with the parents.

    REALITY IS ALL WE HAVE.

    ANYTHING ELSE IS JUST LIES!

    BRIAN IS NOT THE VICTIM!

    THE ONLY VICTIM IS GONE.
    HUMAN BEINGS DON’T JUST DISAPPEAR!!!

    YOUNG PEOPLE ARE BEAUTIFUL FOR A SHIRT PART OF LIFE,
    BUT THEY CAN BE INCREDIBLY NAIEVE AND TOO TRUSTING.
    THERE IS NEVER A PERFECT CRIME. THERE ISN’T ANY SUCH THING IN 2021 THAT HIGHLY INCRIMINATING EVIDENCE WON’T EMERGE. VIDEO CAMERAS ARE EVERYWHERE, WITNESSES CAN EMERGE FROM ANYWHERE, FINGERPRINTS, CELLPHONE LOCATIONS, CREDIT CARD USAGE DOCUMENTED, HAIR, BLOOD DNA ELEMENTS AND MANY OTHER TECHNOLOGIES WILL CLOSE IN ON THE PERPETRATOR(S) IN AN UNENDING NIGHTMARE OF THEIR VERY OWN MAKING.

  8. This sissy boy weirdo brian killed her. His defense will be she left him. He looker for her for hours maybe days but couldn’t find her. He never notified the police. He never notified the family. He just drove HER car back to FL Not normal. Not kosher. Not responsible. Very suspicious. If she was ‘just’ missing she would have been found by now and have contacted her family. If she had an accident and he was not responsible he would have attempted to get her help at that time. His actions are those of a criminal. She already told police she was afraid of him leaving her stranded on the road. His actions are those of a criminal. They need to check phone tower records to get more evidence of where he traveled . They need to see if he ever took the van into Yellowstone. I believe he disposed of her strangled body into one of the cauldrons where her body is and would be almost 100% unrecoverable and unidentifiable. Such a beautiful woman with a beautiful spirit is now filled with joy and living happy in the presence of the Lord. May her parents, siblings and friends find comfort and peace in the painful days ahead and may we all be protected from those that do the work of the evil one.

  10. I don’t understand why both parents supported this trip when they knew they broke up and got back together like a bad habit. I am sure another fight broke out and there was some kind of physical contact that is why he was seen hitch hiking on August 29th. He was picked up and wanted to go to Jackson Hole. He was trying to leave and Gabby was not with him. He said he and Gabby were camping along the Snake River and Gabby was with the van during this time that is why he was alone without transportation. He was picked up at 5:30 pm and dropped off at the dam around 6 pm. He probably returned to the van and whatever happened maybe she went looking for him or he hurt her but he took the van and came home.

  11. I now believe that the newlyweds could have been killed for calling the police on this young couple who were fighting. I do not trust Brian. If he can be silent while the family is worried, he is capable of great cruelty and has no conscience.
    His parents know things about him and yet they are the ones who were there when his malformed conscience was developing. Sorry but there is a lot to glean from what we see in silence and what we know about behavior.
    May God help Gabby Rest In Peace if she is dead. May God help this guy who is running away and who may have been gone running a longer time ago.
    I agree with another poster here that he knows he is unworthy of her and it really bothered him.

  12. Are people of color allowed to refuse speaking with investigators when police and detectives are at mommy and daddy’s front door? Guess a knock on the door in certain Florida neighborhoods means “alrighty then” and nobody in the Florida home gets shot or roughed up. Utah responders seem just as oblivious to evidence right in front of their eyes. How many dead bodies has this scumbag family-created Laundrie cretin left in his murderous wake? Apparently another dead body may be found – the get-away van’s been dragged out of a Florida swamp. Hoping Brian’s a goner in that van, but that demise is too good for vermin like him. Rot in jail, then rot in Hell.

  13. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-9990665/Mother-missing-Gabby-Petito-says-boyfriend-family-IGNORED-desperate-texts.html
    Read from the Daily Mail who talked to Gabby’s mom. The Laundries apparently got rid of all Gabby’s things in their FL home during the time they got that small truck camper, then went camping trip for 3 days, believe that was 9-3 thru 9-6/7.. Gabby’s mom was upset to hear about this as it happened before she finally was able to file a Missing Person form on her dtr, Gabby. And she got no further responses from Brian or his mom, Roberta., who still is an “office worker” in Suffolk County NY. However, she is not a lawyer or paralegal. She only holds a BA in business., and I believe she still works as office staff and made $50k for 2020. . And Brian’s parents started a business in 2015/16 “Juicer Services” that they incorporated in 2017. They sell & repair commercial grade juicers. The house in FL had been trashed by the time the bank got & sold it in “as is” for $120k. Other properties in the area went for twice that min., so after a lot of work, it’s now worth ~$300-310k or was.
    They know Brian is probably a part of Gabby’s death & I don’t know how they found his car rather easily& left it there for a couple days, then waited an additional day to supposedly file a missing person form on him 9-17, which is only 5-6d vs Gabby’s parents 10days as the NYPD May them wait til the 11th, but I believe Suffolk County took a report 9-2. Tho Brian returned to FL in the very early hrs of 9-1, when Gabby’s mom tried to get the police looking on 9-1.
    Yet the North Port PD didn’t verify Brian was in his parents home on 9-11. They just took the piece of paper with supposedly Brian’s lawyer’s name & number on it, from the mother. So this bought him more days to run, think like 9-10 days now.
    Fyi The Federal Arrest warrants are just for the use of Gabby’s Bank of America, ATM, card in WY and now in CO/Colorado.
    The forensics team did retrieve an external hard drive from the Transit Van and yest, the FBI went back to the Laundries to get some of Brian’s DNA & clothes.
    The forensic autopsy is still going on, as to exactly how Gabby died, as Brian could of let her get out of the van during an argument and then he just left her out there w/o anything. Not even her phone to call him to come back & get her.
