Gabby Petito’s boyfriend Brain Laundrie is still on the run.
It’s hard to believe that this guy slipped past the police and the feds and just went on a “stroll” without a care in the world, and now, as a likely murder suspect, he’s still creeping around the woods, God knows where…
CNN is reporting that a source close to the family of Brian Laundrie told CNN’s Chris Cuomo on Thursday that Gabby Petito’s fiancé, who is now the subject of a federal warrant, left his parents’ Florida home last Tuesday without his cell phone and wallet.
Laundrie’s parents were concerned that he might hurt himself, the source said. Laundrie has not been seen since that Tuesday and authorities have been searching a nature reserve in Venice, not far from the parent’s home in North Port.
Fox News reported that a second woman has come forward to say she gave a hitchhiking Brian Laundrie a ride in Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming on Aug. 29, two days after Gabby Petito was last seen.
The first woman, Miranda Baker, said in videos posted to TikTok on Sept. 17 that she and her boyfriend picked up Laundrie, 23, at 5:30 p.m. MST on Aug. 29 after spotting him hitchhiking on the side of the road. She said she spoke with police about the encounter.
Norma Jean Jalovec, a seasonal Wyoming resident from Florida, told Fox News Digital on Friday that after seeing Baker’s TikTok video, she realized she had also picked up Laundrie on Aug. 29 and dropped him off around 6:30 or 6:40 MST at the Spread Creek dispersed camping area, where Petito’s remains were discovered weeks later.
Jalovec said she spontaneously decided to visit a Catholic church called Chapel of the Sacred Heart in Grand Teton National Park that Sunday for its 5 p.m. MST service. The church is about 1.2 miles from Jackson Lake Dam, where Baker said she dropped Laundrie off after he “freaked out” and asked to get out of the couple’s Jeep.
Jalovec said she picked him up around 6:15 or 6:20 past the dam near Pacific Creek Landing. He was walking backward and holding out his thumb, like so many do in that area of the National Park, she told Fox News.
This is the hottest shirt on the market right now! Let your fellow American Patriots know where you stand! FJB!!! Get your shirt HERE before they run out!!
“I picked him up…” Jelovec said. “… Something just said, ‘Hey, ask him where he’s going.'”
Laundrie, who sat in the passenger seat of Jalovec’s 4Runner, asked if she was going to Jackson. When she told him no because she lives in the opposite direction, he asked her if she’d drop him off at the Spread Creek dispersed camping area, which she agreed to, Jalovec said.
Spread Creek is about a 20-minute drive from the dam.
But things got really weird at the end of the drive. As Jalovec got ready to drop Brian off at the campground. She offered to drive him to his camper, but he declined. At that point, Jalovec joked with Laundrie about him wanting to impress his fiancé by hiking into the campground rather than hitching a ride, but he only responded by insisting that he be let out of the vehicle.
Bizarre, to say the least.
If you ask me, when this lady happened upon Brian, he had already killed Gabby in the forest and was getting a ride back to his camper, and so he could leave and go back to Florida.
