Attorney Steve Bertolino spoke out for the laundries after Gabby’s parents filed a lawsuit against them

The parents of Brian Laundrie, who were responsible for Gabby Petito’s death, have claimed through their lawyer that they “did everything right” as the sensational case unfolded last year. Attorney Steve Bertolino told NewsNation’s ‘Banfield’ on Wednesday evening, June 22: “What I knew or what Chris and Roberta knew we didn’t need to disclose to anyone, particularly law enforcement or the Petito family. I did everything right. We don’t regret it. The parents did everything right and they have no regrets.”

Bertolino’s statement came hours after Gabby’s parents filed a lawsuit against the late Brian and his parents – Christopher and Roberta Laundrie – over their deaths. In their civil lawsuit, Nichole Schmidt, 41-year-old mother of the Van Life blogger, and her former husband Joseph Petito, 42, have accused the laundries of hiding the truth about their daughter’s death, alleging they “acted intentionally or great indifference”.

Her lawyer, Patrick Reilly, claimed in court, as The Daily Mail reported: “This case is not just about the silence of Robert and Christopher Laundrie, who knew their son had brutally murdered Gabby Petito. It is about behavior they committed when they learned on August 28, 2021 that their son had brutally murdered Gabby Petito.”

On Wednesday morning, Gabby’s parents sued the laundries, who then filed for a dissolution. Bertolino repeated what he had previously said: “I don’t know exactly what Brian said to his parents. I had said publicly that what Brian told me was a privilege. I wouldn’t share it. I’ve had conversations with Brian. I had talks with Chris and Roberta. I had conversations with them separately and I had conversations with them together. So it’s not my place to comment at this point on what Chris and Roberta knew,” before adding, “I can tell you what I knew… maybe, one day, what Brian knew, but none of that will be in tonight.” happen on this show.”

The attorney also dismissed claims that Brian’s parents helped him escape. He explained: “Chris and Roberta have done nothing but stay at their house. There was speculation that there were burner phones, that we would dress him up in funny outfits and send him across the Mexican border, send him across certain waters to other countries in the Bahamas, or maybe the Appalachian Way. All of this was backfill work for the networks, which had to schedule some time 24/7.”

On the other hand, Gabby’s relatives said in response to the laundries’ request: “It is believed and therefore alleged that on or about 28 August 2021 Brian Laundrie informed his parents Christopher Laundrie and Roberta Laundrie that he was married to Gabrielle Petito has murdered. On the same day, Christopher Laundrie and Roberta Laundrie spoke to attorney Steve Bertolino and sent him an advance on September 2, 2021.”

“While Gabrielle Petito’s family was suffering, the Laundrie family vacationed at Fort DeSoto Park on September 6-7, 2021. They went on vacation knowing that Brian Laundrie had murdered Gabrielle Petito. It is believed that they knew where her body was. In order to avoid any contact with Nichole Schmidt, on or about September 10, 2021, Roberta Laundrie blocked Nichole Schmidt on her mobile phone so that neither phone nor SMS could be delivered and she blocked her on Facebook,” the legal team added.

Meanwhile, Sarasota Circuit Court Judge Hunter W. Carroll, who heard both sides, has reportedly said he will announce his decision in a few days, and if it’s in favor of Gabby’s parents, it’s likely next year a process take place.
