DOG the Bounty Hunter has urged Brian Laundrie to “turn yourself in” after it was revealed the Gabby Petito was strangled to death.

Dog, whose real name is Duane Chapman, has been hunting for Brian Laundrie for weeks.

Speaking exclusively to The Sun this week, Dog told Gabby Petito‘s missing fiance that running “makes you look guilty”.

“His best decision now would be to turn himself in,” Dog exclusively told The Sun, adding that Laundrie’s parents “need to be doing more to signal Brian to stop running.”

The comments came after Gabby’s cause of death was revealed as homicide by strangulation on Tuesday.

The Teton County Coroner held a press conference on the 22-year-old vlogger’s full autopsy in which the cause and manner and death were confirmed.

Gabby’s body was found in Grand Teton National park on September 19, eight days after her family reported her missing.

  • WALMART SURVEILLANCE

    Dog said he’s spent a substantial amount of time collecting surveillance video evidence that could help locate Laundrie.

    On Friday, he visited a Walmart where the manager granted him access to a 24-hour surveillance camera, he said.

    He did not specify if anything significant was found on that footage, but described a trash can located under the camera as a “criminal smorgasbord.”

  • DOG CLAIMS GABBY COULD BE HEARD YELLING

    The 68-year-old TV star alleged in an exclusive interview with The Sun that he knew Gabby was “very verbal” and that her fiancé would try to physically keep her quiet.

    “I know that she was very verbal because as they were arguing one time, the vacationers around them heard her yelling,” he said.

    It is unclear which vacationers he is referring to and if it was the argument on August 12 in Moab, Utah, where onlookers called the cops to respond after Laundrie reportedly hit his fiancée in the street.

    “I know that he calmed her down usually by grabbing her mouth like this because when you grab someone’s mouth like that you know she was verbal,” Dog continued, grabbing his own face to demonstrate.

  • IS DOG THE BOUNTY HUNTER MARRIED?

    Dog is currently married.

    On August 23, 2021, TMZ reported that Dog, also known as Duane Chapman, was engaged to Francie Frane.

    They got married in Colorado on September 2, 2021.

    Previously, Chapman was married to Alice Elizabeth “Beth” Barmore.

    Beth died in June of 2019 after battling cancer for years.

    He’s also been married to La Fonda Sue Darnell, Ann Tegnell, and Lyssa Rae “Big Lyssa” Brittain.

  • DOG’S DAUGHTER IS WAITING TO SHARE INFORMATION

    She tweeted Sunday: “Hi guys, I was locked out of Twitter due to account security.

    “Just got back in. A lot of people asking about my last tweet with big news.

    “I’ve been asked to not share active information due to the large amount of media surrounding the case.”

    She uploaded an image of a black background with the caption: “I know I disappear a lot, I don’t text back consistently and I’m distant. The truth is, I’m a superhero.”

  • HOW DID DOG’S DAUGHTER DIE?

    Dog’s eldest daughter Barbara Katy died in Alaska in 2006 aged 23 on the eve of his wedding to his fifth wife, Beth Smith.

    According to News9, Barbara was killed when the stolen SUV she was in rolled and crashed into a tree.

    The driver, Scott Standefer II, also died in the accident.

    She was the eldest of the bounty hunter’s twelve children.

  • NOT SUFFOCATION

    Speaking exclusively to The Sun last week, the 68-year-old claimed that the Teton County coroner’s office showed “mercy” to the Petito family by “slowly” revealing more information.

    “I have never seen the findings of an autopsy take this long to announce.” Dog said.

    “I know that my daughter was killed at the same age and for a few weeks, they didn’t tell me that the car actually rolled over on my daughter’s skull.

    “I remember these exact pieces of time when Barbara Katy passed away so I’m glad I didn’t hear that right away.

    “It’s more the mercy of the federal government and the coroner really to go out very slowly.

    “If she was suffocated they would have announced that right away,” Dog added of Gabby’s autopsy. “I think it’s more than that.”

  • DOG ON AUTOPSY RESULTS

    Dog says the autopsy results look very bad for the Laundrie family.

  • DOG THE BOUNTY HUNTER’S DAUGHTER ASKS FOR TIPS ON BRIAN LAUNDRIE HUNT

    In a series of tweets, Duane Chapman’s daughter Lyssa wrote: “The Hunt for Brian continues. We let all the bad information cycle out. Remember we are still in need of your tips ! 833-TELLDOG.”

    “We have a ton of information we are sorting thru. Due to all the media coverage, we have had to let things cool down and allow the REAL leads come back in.”

  • DOG’S PERSONAL HOTLINE

    Thousands of tips have been sent as the bounty hunter’s personal hotline 833-TELLDOG has been flooded with potential leads.

    But Dog warned that some of the leads they are receiving are “fake” to “get us off the track.”

    He said: “There are leads that are coming in that are beautiful and there was a lead that came in that showed a picture of him.”

    “We googled the guy that sent that in and he went to high school with Brian.”

  • DOG THINKS FOR BRIAN LAUNDRIE, SUICIDE ‘VERY LIKELY’

    Dog – real name Duane Chapman – told Newsweek: “We need to run his record. We need to see what his background is, as far as domestic violence or anything else.”

    Chapman said Laundrie “isn’t an experienced runner or criminal” and it’s possible “he’s right there in his hometown.”

    But he added: “Suicide is a very likely possibility.”

  • DARK INSTAGRAM POSTS PART 2

    Laundrie also bragged on the platform about reading ‘Lullaby’, a horror-satire novel by Chuck Palahniuk, as well as ‘Rant’, a novel in the form of an oral biography, to Gabby shortly before she was killed.

    He wrote on Instagram: “The f**king craziest out of all of Chuck’s books on my shelf, I can’t fathom how he must have written this one! I’d love to preach all of the insane twists and turns but all I can say is that I’ll never forget the name Rant Casey. Or Green Taylor Simms.

    “Me and my fiancé read this one out loud together and boy oh boy I can’t believe some of the stuff coming out of our mouths.”

    On Petito’s 22nd birthday, the couple went hiking and in a photo she posted on her Instagram profile, Laundrie can be seen slicing an apple with a copy of Lullaby balancing on his legs.

  • DARK INSTAGRAM POSTS

    As previously reported by The Sun, in the months before Laundrie and Gabby embarked on their ill-fated adventure, he shared a series of disturbing images and artwork to his Instagram and Pinterest accounts.

    One such post, uploaded to Instagram on July 15, 2020, is captioned “Grim Reaper leading sheep to the slaughter” and shows a herd of sheep surrounded by ghoulish figures wielding scythes.

    Some of the reapers have been carved into mousetraps and outlined in red.

    A second work, uploaded a week earlier, shows what appears to be a man wearing a wolf mask, sat in a chair and holding a blood-soaked knife, with red splatters up his arms and legs.

  • WHEN DID DOG JOIN THE SEARCH?

    On Saturday, September 25, Dog the Bounty Hunter, also known as Duane Chapman, announced he was joining the search for Brian Laundrie.

    Chapman started his search at Laundrie’s parents’ house, believing them to know of Laundrie’s whereabouts.

    The parents called the cops on Chapman, who left the property on his own accord.

    Chapman insists he wants to speak to the father of Laundrie, because he understands what the parents are going through right now as he was once convicted of first-degree manslaughter in 1976.

  • BRIAN LAUNDRIE COMPARED TO WIFE KILLER SCOTT PETERSON

    Dog the Bounty Hunter has compared Brian Laundrie to wife killer Scott Peterson and revealed why he thinks the fugitive is guilty.

    The reality TV star said that Chris Laundrie joining the hunt for his son last week “fits the MO of most people that…are guilty of something.”

    Dog told The Sun: “Most of the guys that kill their wives and their family, they hide up for three or four days and then protesters start and the rumors start.

    “And people are ‘Well, Scott Peterson if you don’t know where she’s at why aren’t you out there helping?’”

    Peterson was found guilty of murdering his eight-month pregnant wife Laci and unborn son in 2002.

    “I remember these exact pieces of time when Barbara Katy passed away so I’m glad I didn’t hear that right away.”

    “It’s more the mercy of the federal government and the coroner really to go out very slowly.”

  • BRIAN’S FACEBOOK PAGE

    Dog collected more useful information by trawling Laundrie’s Facebook page, where he discovered posts he described as “dark” and “demonic.”

    “What [my wife] Francie and I found on that Facebook is absolutely, I can say, terrifying,” he said.

    He continued: “There are pictures of demonic angels standing there with the sword, and the throat bleeding. There is blood squirting from their eyes.”

    He said when his wife Francie saw Laundrie’s posts, they gave her “goosebumps.”

    “I hope the jury that sentences him does get a chance to see what he’s like,” he added.

  • DOG ADDS $10K TO REWARD

    Last week, Dog chipped in $10,000 to the reward being offered in the search for Brian as an incentive for people to continue sending him tips.

    Most of the reward money has been donated by individuals to the Petito family.

  • DOG’S ‘DEMONIC’ CLAIM ABOUT BRIAN

    Dog the Bounty Hunter revealed he believes Brian Laundrie posted “demonic” things on his Instagram account.

    Dog, real name Duane Chapman, joined the hunt for 23-year-old Laundrie last month at the behest of his fans shortly after Gabby’s remains were found at a Wyoming campsite on September 19.

    As previously reported by The Sun, in the months before Laundrie and Gabby embarked on their ill-fated adventure, he shared a series of disturbing images and artwork to his Instagram and Pinterest accounts.

    One such post, uploaded to Instagram on July 15, 2020, is captioned “Grim Reaper leading sheep to the slaughter” and shows a herd of sheep surrounded by ghoulish figures wielding scythes.

  • BEST DECISION WOULD BE FOR BRIAN LAUDNRIE TO ‘TURN HIMSELF IN’

    “His best decision now would be to turn himself in,” Dog exclusively told The Sun, adding that Laundrie’s parents “need to be doing more to signal Brian to stop running.”

    “The coroner’s statement has established a timeline that looks worse for Brian Laundrie,” Dog added.

    The bounty hunter also said that Brian’s “continued evasion of law enforcement makes him look guilty.

    “I can’t fathom how Brian’s parents can live with themselves.”

    “They need to be doing more to signal Brian to stop running,” Dog said.

  • DOG IS NOT SHARING TIPS WITH POLICE

    The reality TV star says he hasn’t been sharing tip-offs with law enforcement.

    There have been several alleged sightings of Laundrie since he was reported missing.

    Neighbors allege that Laundrie was spotted running from his home in North Port on September 17.

    Dozens of alleged sightings have been reported in North Carolina along the Appalachian Trail, cops say.

  • HOW MANY BODIES HAVE BEEN DISCOVERED AMID BRIAN LAUNDRIE MANHUNT?

    At least six bodies have been discovered around the US amid the manhunt for Brian Laundrie.

    Authorities nationwide have been on high alert for Laundrie sightings for nearly five weeks since he was reported missing in Florida just two days before his fiancee Gabby Petito was found dead in Wyoming.

    While Laundrie remains at large, at least four other people have been found dead under suspicious circumstances during that period near areas where police were searching for him or Gabby.

    An additional two bodies found before Laundrie disappeared were initially probed as potentially being linked to the case because they were discovered near where he was road-tripping with Gabby.

  • DOG HOPES TO FIND BRIAN ALIVE

    Chapman has stated that he wants Laundrie to be found alive, hoping to solve the case well before November, when the missing fugitive turns 24.

    Chapman uploaded a video on Sunday, October 3 with an update on the search.

    “The search has continued throughout the weekend on the islands off the west coast of Florida,” he wrote.

    The post also included a video of Chapman with a team appearing to search in a swamp.

    Chapman has since returned to Colorado, after suffering an ankle injury during the search for Brian.

  • DOG CLAIMS PARENTS WOULD’VE TOLD LAUNDRIE TO ‘GET HOME’

    Dog claimed that Brian Laundrie’s parents would have told their son: “Ok, son, get home right now.”

    Chris and Roberta Laundrie’s attorney Steven Bertolino told The Sun that they would not be commenting on the claims.

    Speaking to The Sun last week, Dog claimed that he thought this was the story in the beginning but he has since changed his mind after reviewing the timeline of Laundrie’s actions.

    “If it had been an accident like that, the parents would have said, ‘listen, this is Wyoming.’

  • HOW DID DOG GET INTO BOUNTY HUNTING?

    Chapman has been bent on doing the right thing ever since that conviction in 1976.

    Dog wrote in his book, You Can Run but You Can’t Hide: “I have been misjudged, misinterpreted, and misunderstood for most of my life.

    “I have spent the last twenty-seven years trying to be one of the good guys.

    “In spite of those efforts to be seen as a moral man of virtue, I am still viewed as an ex-con, a criminal, a killer.

    “I am many things, including those just mentioned. Put it all together and you will see: I am Dog.”

  • BRIAN RUNNING MAKES HIM ‘LOOK GUILTY’

    He previously told The Sun that Brian running from police makes him “look guilty”, adding that Laundrie’s parents “need to be doing more to signal Brian to stop running.”

    “I can’t fathom how Brian’s parents can live with themselves,” Dog added.
