A prominent Florida attorney is now offering a $20,000 reward to anyone who can provide information that leads to the whereabouts of Brian Laundrie, a person of interest in the Gabby Petito homicide, according to The Daily Wire.
Tatiana Boohoff, a well-known Florida attorney, indicated that the baffling case is personal for her. As a mother of two, she said that “a missing child is every parent’s worst nightmare” and, accordingly, that she wants to “get some answers and get justice for Gabby.”
Boohoff has revealed that she has already received numerous tips, which she says she forwarded to the FBI. She is urging anyone with information, though, to contact the FBI directly.
“We want to do what we can to help find answers and get justice,” Boohoff said, according to Fox News.
So many questions
As of Sunday morning, Laundrie remains missing amid a massive search spearheaded by federal, state, and local law enforcement.
According to Fox, Laundrie’s parents last reported seeing him on Sept. 14. They claim that he fled to the Carlton Reserve, a 24,000-acre park in Florida, but authorities still have not been able to find him despite their best efforts.
Laundrie, apparently, had been in contact with his parents between Sept. 1 and Sept. 14. Sept. 1 is the day that he returned home in Petito’s van without Petito. This van was found by authorities at the Laundrie family home, and it has since been taken in as evidence. Authorities also reportedly searched the Laundrie’s residence.
The trustworthiness of Laundrie’s parents has been called into question for several reasons, including the fact that they didn’t report their son missing until police showed up on Sept. 17, three days after they claim he left. Also, it has been revealed that Laundrie’s parents picked up his car from the Carlton Reserve – without him in it – on Sept. 14.
Person of interest
Laundrie, according to authorities, is a person of interest in the homicide of Gabby Petito, a travel blogger. The last time that Petito was seen alive was on Aug. 27 in a Wyoming restaurant. Petito and Laundrie were a couple, and they were witnessed being kicked out of the restaurant after Laundrie got into a fight with a waiter.
Prior to that, there are reports that Laundrie was caught slapping and hitting Petito in broad daylight. Police responded to the incident but no arrests were made.
Petito was reported missing by her family on Sept. 11, and her body was finally located on Sept. 19 at an undeveloped campsite in Grand Teton National Park. The coroner has listed her death as a homicide.
There is currently an arrest warrant for Laundrie, as Fox reports, but the warrant, for now, is for credit card theft.
