Is Brian Laundrie hiding at his sister Cassie's house? Dog the Bounty Hunter may know
Dog the Bounty Hunter claimed that Cassie Laundrie certainly knows more about Brian Laundrie's disappearance
Despite his ankle injury, Duane Chapman aka Dog the Bounty Hunter is still continuing his hunt for Brian Laundrie. According to the latest reports by TMZ, Dog showed up at Brian's sister Cassie Laundrie's house and "knocked like crazy." He later revealed to the media outlet that he strongly believes Cassie has more information about Brian Laundrie's disappearance.
Earlier in October 2021, Cassie Laundrie and her husband interacted with a group of protesters outside their home where she admitted having no clue about her brother's whereabouts. She also added that her parents Christopher and Roberta Laundrie might have more insights about Brian's disappearance following the death of his fiancee Gabby Petito. Recently, Cassie also revealed that she had received death threats from angry protesters, who threatened to kill her family and abduct her kids.
Meanwhile, the cause of Gabby Petito's death was ascertained to be manual strangulation, as announced by coroner Dr. Brent Blue. Sharing his opinion on the same, Dog the Bounty Hunter insisted that Gabby's strangulation was not an accident. "Brian's only chance is to turn himself in," he said, alleging that "the Laundrie's have stonewalled Gabby's family because they knew what Brian had done and it looks like they've helped him run." He further added that despite his initial plans to give up on Brian Laundrie's search due to injury, he "couldn't bring himself to leave" after Gabby Petito's cause of death was revealed. Presently, he appears to have doubled down on Cassie Laundrie, to get more information about Brian from her.
Dog has not made any specific speculation regarding Brian Laundrie hiding at his sister's place, but he expressed his certainty about Cassie knowing more than she has revealed till now. On October 13, Dog arrived at Cassie's house and b-lined to the front door. TMZ also spotted him knocking like crazy on the main door, but no one answered even after a long time. However, Dog refuses to give up and will probably return sometime soon to confront Cassie Laundrie again.
It must be noted that so far the FBI has not listed Brian as a suspect in the case, but is still treating him as a "person of interest". Likewise, the Laundrie family has not been named in any capacity so far — so Dog's statements about Gabby Petito's murder must be considered opinion, not fact. Until the FBI officially declares Brian as a suspect, or files charges against him in the death of Petito, he will remain a person of interest. So far, Brian is only facing a charge of unauthorized use of a debit card, for which an arrest warrant has been issued.
