Brian Laundrie’s dad Chris joined search of Carlton Reserve swamp ‘to avoid charges’ and ‘could be a ruse’
A former fugitive believes Brian Laundrie’s dad helping authorities search for his son could be a “ruse” and to “avoid charges.”
Seth Ferranti, who was on the US Marshals’ most wanted list, wondered if the Laundrie family helped their son go into hiding.
“Is it something that they even planned?” he asked during an appearance on Fox & Friends on Friday.
“I am kind of looking at that with some suspicion.”
The Laundrie family lawyer Steven Bertolino said in a statement that Chris Laundrie assisted police with the search effort at Carlton Reserve.
“The entire Laundrie family is grateful for the hard work of the dedicated members of law enforcement,” he said.
Hours later, Bertolino told reporters that Laundrie’s parents would not continue to help authorities in the search.
Laundrie is wanted by authorities in connection to the death of his fiancé Gabby Petito whose remains were found on September 19.
Laundrie was reported missing by family members two days before on September 17.
“You gotta face the music.”

If Laundrie had something to do with Gabby’s death, Ferranti says he needs to have his day in court.
“If you did do something to that girl, you gotta pay the price.”
