Dog the Bounty Hunter says that Brian Laundrie’s parents might face prison if they assisted their son in eluding capture.
“You don’t know if he’s standing in the park across the street or behind the golf course,” Dog said of Chris and Roberta Laundrie in an exclusive interview with The Sun.
“But if you’re sending someone to take him some clothes and food.
“Pretty soon,” Dog said, “the lies come back to bite you.”
There’s no reason to suppose Brian’s parents have helped him continue to elude investigators. Still, Dog claims that the fugitive might take advantage of any parental support he may have gotten if they did.
The reality TV star who joined the hunt for Brian last month added: “You know what these guys do when they get caught? They got authors that come to them in prison and go ‘Listen you’re all done and you need commissary money. You’re going to tell us what really happened, we’re going to write your autobiography.”
And 99.9% of these criminals tell the truth. ‘Oh, my mom and dad helped me out, but I made them.'”
The TV star also claimed that if Brian received help, then “he’s gonna rat off Mom and Dad. If he’s going to kill his girlfriend, who he loves—he’s going to tell on mom and dad.”
Chris and Roberta Laundrie have maintained that they do not know their son’s whereabouts, but Dog believes that the FBI may coerce them into divulging that information if they do.
“One of these days the men in black are gonna knock on that door and say ‘Excuse me, Mr. Chris, but we have a United States warrant for your arrest.'”
“And if they don’t find him in a couple of days, that’s exactly what the feds are going to do.”
Dog alleged that the FBI could go to the parents and say: “When you guys can figure out where he might be—you give us a clue, we may be able to set you a bond, and you get to go home.’
“And I think that’s exactly what’s happening.”
After Laundrie, 23, left his family’s home in Florida just days before Gabby’s body was discovered, the FBI launched a million-dollar search for him.
Brian’s father, Chris, joined the hunt for his son on Thursday, Oct. 7.
