(FreedomBeacon.com)- The FBI has reportedly seized footage of Brian Laundrie, the boyfriend of murdered YouTube star Gabby Petitio, which shows him purchasing a burner phone from an AT&T store in his hometown of North Port, Florida on the day that he went missing.
FBI agents reportedly seized the footage from the store after learning that Laundrie may have visited the store while in the company of an older woman on September 14. That’s the same day that Laundrie reportedly went on a hike, leaving his parent’s home and not coming back.
Laundrie went missing three days after his girlfriend Gabby Petito was reported missing.
FBI agents are still being assisted by internet sleuths who noticed that changes were made to Laundrie’s social media accounts, and as TV’s “Dog the Bounty Hunter” announced that he was on the case looking for the man. The daughter of Dog the Bounty Hunter, Lyssa Chapman, confirmed to the press that the FBI believes that Laundrie’s mother is also using a burner phone and may be communicating with her son.
Steven Bertolino, an attorney representing the Laundries, said that the family did purchase a new phone but that they believe it is the one left behind at their home by Brian, and that the FBI is already in possession of it.
Bertolino made similar comments to the Insider, too, claiming that investigators already own the device, which he claims was left by Brian Laundrie along with his wallet at his family’s home before abandoning the building on September 14.
Fox reported that surveillance footage from Fort De Soto Park was also seized.
Laundrie is not wanted on charges of murder but is considered a person of interest in the case. And let’s face it, they’re not going to admit he’s wanted for murder, are they?
That would make it virtually certain he’ll never turn up again.
Dog the Bounty Hunter claims that the area is the perfect place for Laundrie to hide, given the five interconnected islands and 1,136 acres of parkland.
Could he be out camping in the woods, getting help from someone through the use of his burner phone?
