FBI issues arrest warrant for Brian Laundrie for using Gabby Petito’s credit card AFTER she went missing
The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has issued an arrest warrant for Brian Laundrie for fraudulently using Gabby Petito’s Capitol One Bank credit card.
The FBI said Laundrie is wanted for ‘use of unauthorized access device’ related to his activities between August 30 and September 1, following Petito’s homicide.
The statement was released today by the Bureau’s Denver desk, reading: While this warrant allows law enforcement to arrest Mr Laundrie, the FBI and our partners across the country continue to investigate the facts and circumstances of Ms. Petito’s homicide.
‘We urge individuals with knowledge of Mr Laundrie’s role in this matter or his current whereabouts to contact the FBI.’
Gabby Petito was last seen alive on August 27 in Jackson Hole, Wyoming trying to defuse a heated argument between fiance Brian Laundrie and a hostess at a Tex-Mex restaurant, according to a witness – shifting the timeline of when the 22-year-old ‘van lifer’ was spotted.
Investigators were initially operating under the assumption that Petito, whose body was found at Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming on Sunday, was last seen alive on August 24 leaving a Salt Lake City hotel with Laundrie.
