Sometimes the good PI’s get into legitimate disagreements. Duane Chapman a/k/a Dog the Bounty Hunter lent his world class fugitive-hunting skills to the massive manhunt for Brian Laundrie. Accused of killing his girlfriend Gabby Petito, Laundrie disappeared into the woods. An experienced outdoorsman, Laundrie has proven to be elusive quarry for law enforcement and its drones; helicopters with infrared sensors; and trained police dogs.
Florida PI Bill Warner said that Dog was engaging in a publicity stunt. We respectfully disagree with Mr. Warner. Dog has tracked down about 10,000 fugitives in his illustrious career. You want Dog’s expertise and the FBI welcomed it. In any case, Dog badly injured his ankle in tracking Laundrie and had to return to Colorado for treatment. We wish Dog the best in his recovery.
We also join Gabby Petito’s parents in wanting to see their daughter’s alleged killer captured and brought to justice.
