New witnesses claim Brian Laundrie acted aggressively
The Independent, says the new witness claims that Brian Laundrie and Gabby Petito were seen in a small restaurant in Jackson Hole, Wyoming on August 27. They were there between 1 pm and 2 pm. According to the report, Laundrie was arguing with the servers. His body language was described as aggressive. It was noted that Gabby apologized to the staff for Laundrie’s behavior.
The witness said they could not hear why Brian was arguing with the servers. However, she believed the argument had something to do with money. The little restaurant called Merry Piglets is about 40 miles from Spread Creek, in the Bridger-Teton National Forest where their van was seen that evening.
If this report is proven to be factual, they were some of the last people to see Gabby Petito alive. The incident was reported to the FBI. Staff at the restaurant claim summer is extremely busy so they do not remember that particular incident. However, the witness produced a receipt to prove she was there at that time. It wasn’t until she saw news reports that she realized who she had seen arguing.
