Brian Laundrie is now a wanted man by the feds … an arrest warrant has been issued — but NOT for Gabby Petito‘s death.
A Federal Grand Jury indicted Laundrie for the crime of Use of Unauthorized Access Devices. Specifically, prosecutors claim Laundrie used a Capital One Bank debit card. The document does not say it’s Gabby’s card, but that doesn’t seem like much of a leap.
The indictment gives a timeline for the alleged unauthorized use of the card … it was used from August 30 to Sept. 1 to purchase items totaling at least $1,000.
What’s significant … he returned to his parents’ Florida home Sept. 1. And, the FBI first asked the public for assistance with Gabby’s case around Aug. 28. She would later be reported missing on Sept. 11.
It’s interesting … the feds aren’t linking the homicide to Laundrie, at least not yet. That’s probably because there are still loose ends … namely, there has to be probable cause to get a warrant for her death, and it’s unclear if there’s physical or other evidence at the crime scene linking Laundrie to the homicide. But, the indictment allows the feds to take Laundrie into custody … that is, if they can find him.
The preliminary autopsy report has not been released, but it’s expected any day. The manner of death will be critical in the investigation.
