In a new interview, Dog the Bounty Hunter believed that Gabby Petito’s fiance, Brian Laundrie, called his parents right after he “killed Gabby Petito” on the cross-country trip.

The reality TV star told The Sun that he thinks Laundrie, the sole person of interest, was encouraged by his parents, Chris and Roberta, to return to their North Port home immediately after her death.

“Of course he murdered her. I think he called the mom and dad right from the scene and said, ‘OMG!'” Chapman told the news outlet.

“Now we have to remember that they lived—Gabby and Brian—with his mom and dad for almost two years,” the bounty hunter went on. “And the house, I was there, it’s not a huge house, so I’m sure they heard, the parents probably heard Gabby screaming.

“I was told by a very close source that he was a gentleman,” he said. “I think he said, ‘Mom, she was screaming, she was screaming so I put my hand over her mouth, and I held my hand and she was screaming and when I took it away she wasn’t breathing and I tried CPR.'”

Steven Bertolino, the Laundrie’s attorney, also told the media outlet that the couple would not be commenting on Dog’s claims.

If something happened between Brian Laundrie and Gabby Petito, Dog the Bounty Hunter believes there is a reason why the 23-year-old would prefer to return home to Florida rather than Wyoming.

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

He explained that it is “one of the only states that still have the death penalty.”

“The only sentence is the death penalty, it’s not a judge it goes to a jury,” Dog noted.

“I don’t think a jury would put a man to death if he went to keep his woman quiet and he suffocated her but woe unto him if he did anything else. That jury in Wyoming is going to hang him.”

On Oct. 12, the Wyoming coroner announced that Gabby Petito, the fiance of missing man Brian Petito, had been strangled to death.

Petito, it was determined, had died three to four weeks before her body was discovered on Sept. 19 near a rough bush campsite on the border of Grand Teton National Park in a remote area of northern Wyoming, reports AP News.

“We hereby find the cause and manner of death to be, the cause, death by strangulation, and manner is homicide,” Blue said. “By Wyoming state statute, no other information will be released about the autopsy.”

Petito vanished in late August while on the fateful trip with Laundrie. Her parents reported her missing in Suffolk County on Sept. 11, more than a week after returning to his parents’ home without her.

On Sept. 19, her remains were found in a remote camping area in Wyoming.

Laundrie, 23, who has not been charged in her death, has been on the run for a month and is wanted for allegedly using Petito’s credit card illegally around the time she was last seen alive.
