Two people threatened to return to the Laundrie home to protest
Two irate protesters were filmed confronting Brian Laundrie’s parents after an autopsy on Gabby Petito’s body revealed that the YouTuber was strangled to death.
At around 8:30 p.m. Tuesday, two people knocked on the front door of the Laundrie home in North Port, Florida , shouting provocations at the family. The incident was caught on camera.
“You like to strangle people with your little son of a bitch. It’s time to wake up and face the consequences, ”the two can be heard shouting.
“We will be back. Better talk soon,” they added.
After they left, Christopher Laundrie, Laundrie’s father, 23, was briefly at the door before police arrived.
The Laundrie family has faced similar protests since Petito’s family reported him missing on September 11. She was on a trip across the country with her boyfriend Laundrie when she suddenly stopped answering phone calls.
Two people apparently tried to confront Chris & Roberta Laundrie at their home just after 8:30pm, banging on the door repeatedly. One of them was shouting, “Come on, dirty Laundries,”“Come on, you guys like to strangle people,”“We’ll be back,”& “Speak up soon.” #BrianLaundrie pic.twitter.com/oBW7kLlZvw

Laundrie returned home without his girlfriend of 22 years on September 1 after they left Long Island, New York, on July 2 on a month-long trip across the country. Petito’s body was discovered on September 19.
Laundrie has escaped the authorities and is the target of massive persecution across the country. He is a person of interest in the murder case, while the FBI issued a warrant against him after indicting him for fraudulently using Petito’s debit card after his death.
In a significant development in the case since Petito’s remains were discovered last month, Teton County Medical Examiner Dr. Brent Blue revealed on Tuesday that Petito died of strangulation and confirmed the death as a homicide.
He revealed that the decomposition of the body suggested that he had been in the desert for three or four weeks and added that Petito was not pregnant. He alluded to domestic violence, but declined to elaborate on the injuries found on Petito’s body, the condition his body was found in, or if toxicology tests revealed any drugs in his system.
The Laundrie family’s attorney issued a statement following the autopsy report, saying, “Gabby Petito’s death at such a young age is a tragedy. While Brian Laundrie is currently charged with unauthorized use of a debit card belonging to Gabby, Brian is only considered a person of concern in connection with Gabby Petito’s disappearance. At this time, Brian is still missing and when he is located, we will address the pending fraud charge against him. “
Petito’s mother, Nicole Schmidt, criticized the comments saying, “His words are rubbish.”
