Brian Laundry is interested in strangling his fiancee Gabby Petito
Brian Laundry had the personality of a “chameleon” who sometimes lost his temper and always kept clean hands despite working with plants and soil, according to a former coworker from his native New York.
Michael Livingston, 23, who worked with Laundry for parts of 2017 and 2018, told Granthshala News Digital, “He never came across as the kind of person that would be the sort of murder.” “But he had that tendency—I don’t want to say the wrong thing and make it worse than before—he was the kind of guy who got the p-ed up too quickly.”
Livingston, 31, was a landscaper for the Long Island Garden Center, where laundry worked on the sales counter and did other odd jobs, he said.

“I remember from behind that he was a big yoga nut, always telling me, ‘I have to worry about my zen,’” Livingston said. “And I thought that was this weird.”
Speaking at a fundraiser for the recently established Gabby Petito Foundation, Livingston said he got to know Pettito briefly from his regular visits to see the laundry. So he showed up at 89 North in Patchogue, New York, on Sunday to pay his respects and support the cause that Pettito’s family had set up to help other families face some hardship.
He said he never saw Laundry being mean or abusive with his deceased ex-fiancée, 22-year-old Gabby Petito, but he was jealous if he saw her talking to other people.
“He would come and talk about the lover, put his hand around her, give her a kiss, very possessive,” she said.
An attorney for Laundry, who is wanted on a federal warrant for debit card fraud and whose whereabouts have been unknown for more than a month, declined to comment.
“He was a good employee who knew how to talk to people,” Livingston said. “He knew how to make people like him, he knew how to please people, and he knew how to get people to buy the product we had, honest. He had that kind of air. was what you would be taught if you worked in a dealership.”
A person answering the phone at the facility confirmed that the laundry worked there.
Livingston said, Petito would visit two or three times a week, and she would ask staff how they were doing and talk about road trips she wanted to go or plans to take. Used to talk

“Gabby, she was always a sweetheart, very peaceful,” Livingston said. “She was always very nice to me, and she was really outgoing.”
But on September 11 this year, Petito’s mother reported her missing from a cross-country road trip that began with laundry in early summer. His remains were found eight days later by an FBI-led search and rescue team near a Wyoming campsite it shared with laundry. Teton County Coroner Dr. Brent Blue later found his death to be homicide by hand strangulation.
Without Petito, Laundry returned to his parents’ home in Florida on September 1, according to officials. Last month, the FBI announced a federal indictment accusing him of withdrawing more than $1,000 from bank accounts he was not authorized to use.
“Once I realized that the person who was missing was really what I knew, it hit me like a tidal wave,” Livingston said.
He also said that Laundry made money by selling pictures and he talked about visiting the country’s national parks.
“I think the only reason for him to settle down was that he wanted to travel,” Livingston said.
