The story surrounding the disappearance of Gabby Petito just keeps getting stranger, and likely more tragic as well.
Petito and her fiancé, Brian Laundrie, were on a cross-country road trip when she went silent on social media. Days later, Laundrie returned home to Florida without Petito, and he has refused to cooperate with authorities who are investigating her disappearance.
This has incensed the local community, and many are now planning for protests outside of Brian’s home, hoping to compel him to share what he knows.
Concerned parents in North Port, Fla., are set Friday to protest outside of the home of Brian Laundrie – the person of interest in Gabby Petito’s disappearance – urging him to speak out and cooperate with investigators.
The demonstration planned for 5 p.m. local time comes as the family of the missing 22-year-old has made repeated pleas for Laundrie to reveal more information.
“We’re all trying to find the answer and the only person who knows it is sitting over in their house,” Gabby Petito’s father, Joe, said on “Hannity” Thursday night. “You can’t have a more frustrating situation… Look where we are. Everyone’s sitting here trying to bring Gabby home and the only one who doesn’t care is the one who’s supposed to care about her the most.”
Laundrie’s silence does not bode well for Gabby’s well-being, and is only creating more pain for her loved ones.
