According to her family’s lawyer, Gabby Petito’s bank card was used in Wyoming just three days after she was killed.
Gabby Petito, 22, went missing while on a cross-country road trip in a converted camper van with Brian Laundrie. She was reported missing by her parents on Sept. 11 after she did not return calls or texts for many days. Days later, her body was discovered near Grand Teton National Park.
Petito family attorney Richard Stafford said about Brian Laundrie, “He ran, he stole her credit card, he used her credit card to get home, and then ran from the police,” Stafford said. “That’s going to show a lot of what he was thinking back then.”
Laundrie is wanted by the FBI for the “use of an illegal access device” in connection with his actions after Petito’s death.
According to the FBI, he accessed two bank accounts using a debit card and a PIN on Aug. 30 and Sept. 1.
On Sept. 23, federal authorities in Wyoming issued an arrest warrant for Laundrie for allegedly using a stolen card “on or about Aug. 30, 2021, through and including on or about Sept. 1, 2021” and “obtained objects of value totaling $1,000 or more.” reported NY Post.
Brian Laundrie’s parents now say they last saw him on Sept. 13 while he was heading to the Carlton Reserve in Florida for a hike. However, they did not report him missing until a few days later.
Laundrie’s lawyer Steve Bertolino claims that the parents have changed their story and now claim their son vanished on Sept. 13.
The Laundries did not report their boy missing until the following week, on Thursday.
“The Laundries were basing the date Brian left on their recollection of certain events,” their lawyer, Steven Bertolino, told NewsNation. “Upon further communication with the FBI and confirmation of the Mustang being at the Laundrie residence on Wednesday Sept. 15, we now believe the day Brian left to hike in the preserve was Monday Sept. 13. “
