Petito and Laundrie

Brian Laundrie’s Dad Sued for Stealing Sign Not in His Yard: Court Docs

The father of Florida fugitive Brian Laundrie has been sued.

Plaintiff Andra Griffin filed a lawsuit against Christopher Laundrie at the North Port Florida, Court, after he allegedly removed a sign that was placed near his home on October 15. Court documents indicate that Laundrie walked out of his home, took the sign down, and walked back inside.

The sign in question read, “What if it was Cassie?” referencing Brian Laundrie’s older sister after and Gabby Petito, who was found dead last month in Wyoming.

Griffin is seeking $40 in damages and alleged that the sign was placed in the neighborhood as part of a peaceful protest. Christopher Laundrie is due in court on December 1 for a pretrial hearing.

As CrimeOnline previously reported, Brian Laundrie is wanted on a felony warrant following the death of Petito. Laundrie and Petito embarked on their cross-country trip in July, but by September 1, Laundrie returned to his parents’ North Port, Florida, home with Gabby’s van, but without Gabby.

On September 19, authorities found Gabby’s deceased body in a remote area at the Bridger-Teton National Forest in Wyoming. According to Teton County coroner, Dr. Blue, Gabby died from strangulation; her death has been listed as a homicide.

Authorities issued the warrant for Laundrie after he allegedly used a Capitol One Bank debit card without permission following Gabby’s death. Laundrie is said to have used the card between August 30 and September 1, “knowingly and with intent to defraud.”

Laundrie’s parents have insisted they have no clue where he is. They claimed he left their residence with a backpack on and headed to the Carlton Reserve on September 13. They reported him missing four days later.

Anyone with information on Laundrie’s whereabouts should contact the FBI at:, call 1-800-CALL-FBI, or 303-629-7171. Upload photos and videos to:
