BRIAN Laundrie had $ 20,000 in his bank account when he died, according to court records, although he allegedly spent $ 1,000 on Gabby Petito’s credit card after his death.
The 23-year-old was named a person of interest in Gabby’s murder in late August, but himself went missing and was found dead of an apparent suicide on October 22.
In July, vlogger Gabby, 22, embarked on an unforgettable journey as she drove across the country with her high school girlfriend and fiancee, Laundrie.
Still, Laundrie returned home alone in September in the van they were traveling in.
After hiring a lawyer and refusing to speak, he then disappeared as well – five days before Gabby’s remains were found in a shallow grave in Bridger-Teton National Forest, Wyoming.
While reported missing or potentially dead, it emerged that Laundrie allegedly used an “unauthorized” Capital One “debit card in the District of Wyoming.
He allegedly swiped the Capital One debit card, generating a balance of $ 1,000, from August 31, four days after Gabby disappeared, to September 1.
According to a charge, he was charged with using the “unauthorized access device” to “obtain something with a total value of $ 1,000 or more”, which is why an arrest warrant was issued against him .
But it turned out the laundry had $ 20,000 in the bank,
As he did not have a will, an expert explained in a previous interview with The Sun that his father Chris and mother Roberta had to go through the courts as part of a technical but common procedure in Florida.
According to court records obtained by Radar, Chris and Roberta filed a petition in Sarasota County court on December 8.
The couple are asking to become administrators of their estate.
Records show they submitted Brian’s death certificate to court along with information about his bank accounts and property.
Petito may have been last seen alive at a Jackson Hole restaurant on August 27.
He returned home to Florida alone in the couple’s van on September 1, about two months after the couple’s planned four-month trip across the country.
Laundrie immediately retained the services of a lawyer and refused to cooperate with the police.
Gabby’s mother said she pleaded with Laundrie for answers on her daughter’s whereabouts, but received no response.
She then reported Gabby’s disappearance to police on September 11.
Three days later, on September 14, Laundrie disappeared from his parents’ home after telling them he was going for a hike in the 24,000-acre Carlton Preserve.
On September 19, 2021, authorities in Wyoming announced that a body had been found in the area where the search for Petito was underway.
Petito’s attorney later confirmed on September 21 that the body was identified as Gabby’s.
On Wednesday, October 20, Laundrie’s personal items were found in Myakkahatchee Creek Park in Florida.
On Thursday, October 21, the remains found during the search for Laundrie were identified as his. The FBI made the announcement in a statement saying, “On October 21, 2021, a comparison of dental records confirmed that the human remains found in the T. Mabry Carlton Jr. Memorial Preserve and Myakkahatchee Creek Environmental Park are those of Brian Laundrie. “
