AT&T Records Requested by Roberta and Brian Laundrie’s Lawyer
North Port, Florida (WFLA) — The attorney representing Gabby Petito’s parents has filed a request with AT&T for phone records from Brian Laundrie and Roberta Laundrie in North Port, Florida. Their lawsuit accuses Brian Laundrie and Roberta Laundrie of knowing about his son killing Gabby but failing to inform authorities or withdraw statements made on their behalf during searches that she was dead or where her remains had been discovered. Steven Bertolino issued statements as searches took place while knowing of Gabby’s death and where her remains were being located – charges which the Laundries deny.
AT&T records would include any communication between family and police; this request forms part of a civil lawsuit filed against the Laundries that will go on trial later this year.
The lawsuit accuses Chris and Roberta Laundrie of disregarding pleas from Gabby’s family to assist them in finding her, even while traveling together. Additionally, it states they went camping with their son after his initial arrest knowing about his alleged plan to kill Gabby and dump her body in Wyoming. Furthermore, it alleges obstructing searches in New York by their refusal to speak with media representatives was “beyond outrageous”.
A judge has already decided that Roberta Laundrie’s letter instructing her son to burn it after reading will be used against the Laundries in court proceedings against them. Petito’s lawyers claim this proves they knew about Gabby’s killing and offered assistance covering up her demise; Roberta Laundrie’s counsel however claims it’s undated and doesn’t pertain to Gabby at all.
WFLA attempted to reach Roberta Laundrie for comment but did not receive a response. Meanwhile, Bertolino has been served with the lawsuit and added as a co-defendant against both Roberta Laundrie and Bertolino.
Gabby’s parents have filed a $300k lawsuit against The Laundries alleging pain and suffering, mental anguish, inconvenience and loss of enjoyment of life among other damages. According to their attorney, this will not be contested.
