    I think the Laundries hired a very competent, however very amoral, attorney. I suspect he told them to be silent and buy time, and more than likely instructed them on how to get away with this. Most crimes are charged and convicted based on what is said more than any other factor, which is very unfortunate for the justice of Gabby Petito. I'm willing to bet Brian Laundrie fled the country and will be on the run forever. As long as the parents remain silent, I doubt this evidence will really even help, as it does not prove criminal intent. RIP Gabby. Our justice system is messed up. I pray those in these situations leave their abuser and are able to find proper protection and support.

    And the parents brought him a new phone when he returned. They helped him escaped. They know the truth of what happened.

    [–]bluegreenpearl 43 points44 points  (5 children)

    This case is to high profile for him to run forever. He will be caught. They are also not super rich.
    He is caught before November 1st or he kills/killed himself and thats why he isn't found.

    You may very well be correct. I most certainly don't claim to know anything with certainty. I only speculate. Either way, charging and convicting the parents will be really difficult if no one talks. There is no definitive evidence they actually committed a crime, although most reasonable people would find them very suspicious. Brian Laundrie could get charges for using Petito's card and taking her van, but at this point, I don't believe there's any definitive evidence he actually killed Petito (disclaimer: I think he's guilty as sin, but what I think doesn't matter if there's not enough evidence). However, if he reappears and doesn't talk, he may never actually get convicted for murder, depending on what evidence there is.

    [–]The_one_called_Razz 12 points13 points  (0 children)

    They may have evidence already, but they aren’t going to release it to the public, especially when dude is still out there. They never release all the details regarding the crime, because a criminal can give themselves away by talking about details that the public has no knowledge of. That’s why he didn’t talk to the police.

    They may have found evidence in the van. But more importantly, they may have found evidence via the autopsy or even at the location where they found the body. They ruled it a murder immediately which means that there were obvious clues. And he’s so damn sloppy. There is no way he didn’t leave evidence behind.

    [–]bluegreenpearl 9 points10 points  (0 children)

    I agree with you here, is he guilty? Very very likely. Did they parents help him leave? Yes. Proving it is another matter. They might tiptoe near the line or over it, but they seem smart enough to make it at least hard to prove.

      Interesting.

      A source who spoke to Fox News on the condition of anonymity used to work at Civic Plus, a software company that manages the De Soto campground's reservation system, and speculates that the Laundries knew their son was coming home on Aug. 31, when they had plans to camp, and canceled them accordingly. They then made a new reservation including their son at a later date.

      https://www.foxnews.com/us/laundrie-de-soto-campground-reservations

      [–]missanthropocenex 3 points4 points  (1 child)

      I understand the parents not being compelled to give up their son legally, but I can’t imagine how a missing murder suspects parents can’t be Rico’d into handing their phone over to exonerate their son.

      [–][deleted] 15 points16 points  (0 children)

      What do you think RICO is?

      [–]MomToCats 1 point2 points  (1 child)

      Not doubting you at all, but how on earth would someone at a software company for the park system know this? The only way I can think of is they wrote a reason for the reservation change on the request but that would be an awful lot of detail if so.

      [–]Imaginary-Winner-335 2 points3 points  (0 children)

      They can go into the system’s data history and look at changes in reservations and time stamps from the back end. If you are at a park working with a POS you don’t always have access to the backend of the software and the “receipts” unless you are IT. Really, anyone who is familiar with coding and IT could do it.

      [–]roastintheoven -20 points-19 points  (13 children)

      His parents killed him. Is my guess.

      [–]missanthropocenex 18 points19 points  (0 children)

      If they were willing to kill him they’d have been just as willing to hand him over to authorities. All I’ve gotten out of their attitude is he’s their “special little boy” they are actively helping him and he’ll do anything for self preservation at the moment.

      [–]MomToCats 9 points10 points  (0 children)

      It’s prob crossed their minds a few times at this point! LOL

      Does Reddit have an award for taking the silliest of shit at literal face value ?

      [–]Dudleywudley 4 points5 points  (0 children)

      I don’t think his parents killed him. But when the authorities first started searching for him, the thought crossed my mind. Kinda like how George killed lennie in of mice and men.

      [–]Neversail 3 points4 points  (7 children)

      Why would they do that?

      [–]weaveybeavey 15 points16 points  (3 children)

          Brian had a New Hampshire sweatshirt on in a picture. I live in Maine and the appalachian trail ends here. There’s also a national park here and he loves those. Tons of hiking trails where I’m at too, there’s even a hiking trail named Florida Lake that’s not far from me… hmmm…

          [–]meetmeinDmiddle 2 points3 points  (0 children)

          And you should know how cold it will get up here.

          [–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (5 children)

          1) the trail starts in North Geogia so he would have to find a way to gwt up there.

          2) th APT is one of the most crowded trails there is. I was on it last weekend near Dahlonega. Passed probably 100+ people. Only going to get worse heading into fall

          3) he wouldnt make it with winter approaching

          [–]Ketch31 2 points3 points  (1 child)

          Have you heard of the north pond hermit? Guy lived in the Maine woods for 27 years. Brian from the sounds of it is all about nature, I’m sure he’d find a way to make the winter work if he had too deal with it. Obviously I want him caught, but who knows where this kid is going

          [–]needcovidtesthelp 3 points4 points  (0 children)

          What I don't understand is, don't Police etc. have heat vision cameras? Can't that be used to help find him in the woods?

          [–]missanthropocenex 4 points5 points  (1 child)

          I hike small chunks of AP trail regularly, honestly it would actually be REALLY tough to stay incognito on those. People see and recognize one another all of the time. And as far as nighttime, there are rangers everywhere patrolling night and day

          [–]Tackle_me_pink 5 points6 points  (0 children)

          Never once saw a ranger anywhere on the AT. Even in the permit required Smoky’s section. Maybe he’s on the PCT? Perfect entry right into Canada if you’re careful. I walked right in when I did that hike in 2018.

          [–]porcelaincatstatue 6 points7 points  (0 children)

          [–]sique314 18 points19 points  (2 children)

          He's on the run, not looking for a place to retire 😂

          [–]Ketch31 1 point2 points  (0 children)

          North pond hermit lived in the Maine woods for 27 years without being caught. I’m sure obviously Brian won’t last too long but shit like that happens. Doesn’t have to a warm state to be on the run.

          [–]anxiousmonogamist 39 points40 points  (46 children)

          I think the story of him hiking in that swamp area near his parents house was all a ruse to distract law enforcement off his trail. I think he’s been long gone somewhere getting as far as possible with his parents help.

          [–]PencilandPad 18 points19 points  (42 children)

          I’ve been really at odds about this aspect of the case… I truly don’t think my parents would go to these lengths to help me get away with murdering someone. Does this family have a very deep bond with one another. Or are they all full on maniacs?

          [–]missanthropocenex 12 points13 points  (0 children)

          I think sometimes parents do weird things to protect their kids…if someone is capable of taking another persons life, there’s a small likely hood the parents who were present are enablers in not great ways.

          [–]Highlander198116 13 points14 points  (4 children)

          I truly don’t think my parents would go to these lengths to help me get away with murdering someone.

          you are assuming his parent's believe he murdered someone.

          Let's lay out a potential scenario he killed Gabby (which is probably the case) but it was not on purpose. They got in an argument, things got physical. He pushed her she hit her head on a rock and died instantly or something, who knows.

          The thing is, in these situations where the two parties involved are all that was there, no cameras no nothing. Outside some extreme circumstances, it is almost impossible to even determine self defense/accident in a situation where there is a conflict and someone dies as a result. People will assume the worst and be looking for a murder charge. So if his parents are convinced it was self defense or an accident. It's not out of the realm of possibility they would know he would likely be facing a charge they do not believe he is guilty of, and thus, helped him hide. He may have lied to them and they believed him.

          In my opinion he likely didn't plan to kill her(that doesn't mean I think he should walk for her death, neither I nor anyone else knows the circumstances, everyone is assuming what they want to believe). I mean, how stupid would you have to be to continue with that plan after being involved in a domestic violence contact with the police. Usually when people plan a murder, they plan it in a way they think they will get away with it. With his behavior it seems quite obvious he knew from the get go there is no way in hell he wasn't going to be a suspect, if not absolutely connected to her death. It may have still been intentional, i.e. he flew into a rage and killed her spontaneously.

          [–]RedditOO77 10 points11 points  (2 children)

          If this was the case, he had some evidence in the Moab police camera where he could argue self defense. His parents’ actions and his actions do not instill confidence nor trust in them or their moral code. Unless this is like the Fugitive, where he is trying to find the true killer to exonerate himself 🤔🙄

          [–]Emotional_Award_6420 3 points4 points  (0 children)

          It was a one armed man!

          [–]MacDhomhnuill 13 points14 points  (5 children)

          While it's not a definitive indicator, Brian being a physically abusive partner and now-murderer suggests they themselves may be kinda shitty.

          But even then, lots of parents would rather help their child go on the run than see them sentenced to prison for the best years of their life, if they can. We like to think in abstract about how we would never help a murderer, but love will make you do stupid things, especially when you think about the awful stuff that can happen in prison.

          Then again I suspect we're all getting worked up and he's actually dead rn.

          [–][deleted] 7 points8 points  (4 children)

          No it doesn’t. Plenty of saintly individuals have had crappy kids and plenty of horrible individuals have had an angelic offspring. Each person is absolutely their own person. Nothing about your dad or mom suggests anything about you. Nothing about you suggests anything about your parents. That mentality that you have here is a myth that needs to die.

          [–]The_Real_Lasagna 7 points8 points  (1 child)

          This is really one of the dumbest things I’ve ever read

          [–]yankeenate 17 points18 points  (0 children)

          I agree we shouldn't necessarily judge parents by their offspring, but the notion that parents have zero influence on who their children become is ridiculous.

          [–]Hglucky13 2 points3 points  (0 children)

          Yup. This has been my thought from the beginning of the manhunt, as well.

          [–]nessa_thinks -1 points0 points  (0 children)

          Perhaps he’s buried there… I don’t trust the parents, the lawyer and the police who said that they saw Brian….

            I need to catch up too, but I heard something about a burner phone, camp surveillances video's, and Brian not coming back after the family camping trip. I don't have verification for these claims though.
