Injured Duane Chapman says Brian’s father’s involvement suggests Brian is “guilty” and criticizes his addition to the search as “too late”.
The FBI has not yet named Brian Laundrie as a suspect in Gabby Petito’s death, but that hasn’t stopped Dog the Bounty Hunter from pleading his guilt. In his most recent interview, the wrestler, whose real name is Duane Chapman, said the inclusion of Brian’s father, Chris Laundrie, in the effort “fits into the MO of most people … guilty”.
Chapman was injured while searching for Laundrie on October 10, forcing him to personally give up his efforts and return to Colorado. The injury comes just days after he was served papers on a $ 1.3 million lawsuit relating to his now-canceled show “Dog Unleashed”. Even so, he’s still pretty much involved in the hunt for Laundrie, which has garnered a lot of attention and even some TV deals in the past few weeks.
Champan compares Brian to Scott Peterson
Since joining the hunt, Chapman has made some discoveries but has mostly captivated people with his comments on the case. He previously described Brian’s Instagram as “demonic” and even said he believed Brian was “not suicidal”. In his latest interview with The Sun, Chapman criticized Chris’s involvement and also compared Brian to the infamous woman killer Scott Peterson.
Speaking to The Sun, Chapman said, “Most of the guys who kill their wives and their families go into hiding for three or four days and then the protesters start and the rumors start.” Then he added, “And people are, ‘Well, Scott Peterson, if you don’t know where she is, why don’t you help out there?’” He noted that public pressure made Brian’s father, Chris, “in one To ride golf around “. Car and show the cops what to do. “
Chapman also noted that it was very unusual for a parent to be involved in this way. As we reported, Chris joined the FBI on October 7th when they searched the vast Carlton Reservation for Brian. He was seen driving around in a golf cart and even sharing a joke with an officer who looked a lot like Brian. “I’ve never heard of it in the 41 years I’ve hunted bounties,” said Chapman. He added, “I’ve never heard of the police and I’m sure it wasn’t the FBI that took the father away.”
He called Chris’s involvement “a little late”. Brian has been missing since at least September 13th, but his parents didn’t get in touch until September 17th to check in. In addition, the family changed their timelines on various reports weeks after they refused to testify to the press or police. It is unclear where he is currently as sightings are reported across the United States and as far as Canada and Mexico.
For those of you who need a refresher, Peterson was notoriously sentenced to death in 2005 after convicted of the murder of his eight month pregnant wife in 2002. In 2020, his death sentence was overturned, but his conviction was confirmed. California Superior Court Judge Anne-Christine Massullo has planned that Peterson will be sentenced again to life imprisonment with no parole in November 2021.
