BRIAN Laundrie’s parents sell their Florida home after an autopsy confirmed that their son killed himself with a bullet in the head.
The couple were pictured for the first time since the travel vlogger’s cause of death was revealed when they ventured into a Walmart store on Tuesday.
A For Sale by Owner is now located outside the North Port house where Chris and Roberta lived with Brian and girlfriend Gabby Petito.
The house was built in 1991 and has three bedrooms and two bathrooms. It has a screened canopy on the porch and a swimming pool that was built in 1992.
Detectives have repeatedly speculated that the flower bed in the house was the focus of the case.
FLOWER BED REQUIREMENTS
They wildly claimed that Brian’s parents “hid a gun under a flower bed” in their garden after his suicide was confirmed.
And they had previously suggested that Brian hide in a doomsday bunker in the yard.
There is no evidence for any of these claims.
Brian’s parents were also spotted hiking in the woods of the Myakkatchee Creek Reservation Tuesday morning.
They returned from their three hour walk through the police station and held hands.
Laundrie’s skeletal remains were found in Florida’s Carlton Reserve on October 20.
His parents were at the scene when the remains and personal belongings were found, their attorney Steven Bertolino said after telling the attorney that they wanted to join the search.
Brian was the only person interested in the murder of his 22-year-old fiancée Gabby, who was found strangled in Wyoming in September.
The couple had been on a road trip when she mysteriously disappeared, which led to the case attracting national attention.
Following the publication of Brian’s autopsy report, the Laundrie family attorney Steven Bertolino told The Sun, “Chris and Roberta Laundrie were informed that the cause of death was a gunshot wound to the head and that the death was suicide.
“Chris and Roberta still mourn their son and hope that these discoveries will close both families.”
Bertolino did not reveal where the gun Laundrie used to kill himself came from.
However, it was later reported that the laundries knew a firearm was missing from their collection when their son went missing.
Laundrie’s remains were found near a notebook and backpack belonging to him on October 20 when his parents were raiding the Carlton reservation.
He was last seen alive on September 13th when he told his parents that he was going on a hike on the reservation.
Gabby had been reported missing by her parents days earlier after failing to reach her or Brian on their travels.
Her body was found on September 19 in a Wyoming national park.
The FBI issued an arrest warrant for Brian on September 24th for misusing a bank card that Gabby’s family had confirmed to be theirs.
PRESS AND PROTESTS
Since Gabby was reported missing, the press and protesters have camped in front of the laundry house and watched her every move.
People stood with signs on Gabby’s face and shouted megaphones around the clock. Sometimes the incidents have developed in physical form as some neighbors and protesters fight over the circus that has formed in the area.
In September a neighbor confronted a protester named Jon Riches.
The neighbor can be seen on a video screaming inaudibly at Riches in the street, while Riches and a woman accompanying him stand several meters away and try to record the interaction.
“Where’s your property?” Riches asks the neighbor, who is now only a foot from Riches face.
“Don’t worry,” replies the neighbor. When Riches takes out his cell phone, the neighbor swings with an open hand towards Riches, who is walking away from it.
The woman who accompanies Riches yells “Hey” and the neighbor replies with a swear phrase: “F – k you too. Get off my property.”
NIGHT COLLECTION OF POST
Due to the constant media circus, laundries have moved to pick up their mail at night to avoid cameras and reporters.
Fox News footage has shown Chris sneaking out in the middle of the night to snag her mail while ignoring a reporter’s questions.
Internet detectives and ex-refugee Seth Ferranti initially believed that Laundrie could have written letters to his family and used “code words” to evade the authorities.
“It’s a way of keeping up communication and letting your parents know he’s okay,” said Ferranti, who was on the run for two years between 1991 and 1993.
