Laundry was interested in the murder of his fiancée Gabby Petito and wanted to make purchases between August 30 and September 1 with a fake debit card worth about $1,000.

The US District Court of Wyoming issued a federal warrant for Laundry’s arrest on September 23. Petito’s parents accused the laundry of “stealing” their daughter’s credit card.

Laundry and Petito were traveling cross-country in a Ford Transit van before the 22-year-old woman went missing. Laundry returned to his Florida home, where he lived with his parents and Pettito for almost a year without him on September 1. His parents say the laundry stoned them and eventually reported Petito’s disappearance on September 11.

Laundry’s parents had already held attorney Steven Bertolino with them by the time Florida police arrived at their door. The Laundries reported Brian’s disappearance on 17 September, but later clarified that he had last seen his son on 13 September.

FBI Tampa Special Agent Michael McPherson said Thursday that laundry-related items were “found in an area that, until recently, was under water.”

Geragos questioned the timeline of events between Laundry’s parents telling law enforcement they were going to search for Brian and his belongings.

“Supposedly, within a very short period of time, they found not only a backpack and a notebook, but their remains,” the criminal defense lawyer said. “…it’s going to rekindle doubts for me as to what their involvement may or may not have been.”

“In the criminal justice system, coincidence is always bad, and it’s a very strange coincidence.”

He added that if he had been in the laundry position, he would “lie down on the floor” and make no further statements.

If officials believe that Laundry’s parents “did anything to assist the flight” after a Wyoming court issued a warrant for their son’s arrest, “there is a risk, potentially, Geragos said.

Additionally, if Laundry confessed to his parents “before escaping,” it could also potentially be “problematic,” Geragos said. However, such an outcome is purely speculative, the lawyer insisted.
