(UnitedVoice.com) – On Sunday, September 26, Gabby Petito’s family held a memorial service to say goodbye to the young woman who lost her life during a road trip with her boyfriend, Brian Laundrie. On the same day, the FBI once again visited his parent’s home.
Two FBI agents went to Laundrie’s parents’ house on Sunday morning. Video taken at the scene showed the agents enter the home while a North Port police officer stood guard at the front door. The agents reportedly collected items belonging to the missing boyfriend for DNA samples.
The FBI entered the Laundrie house for 3 minutes. According to their attorney: The FBI requested some personal items belonging to Brian Laundrie to assist them with DNA matching and Brian’s parents provided the FBI with what they could.

The family’s attorney said the FBI wanted the items for DNA matching. It’s not clear whether authorities found foreign DNA on the young woman’s body during the autopsy.
The FBI issued an arrest warrant for Laundrie last week. Authorities accused him of using Petito’s debit card in the days after she went missing.

Petito’s parents reported her missing on September 11, after they didn’t hear from her for more than a week. Laundrie refused to cooperate with the police before he, too, went missing. Sarasota County deputies have been searching a wildlife reserve for signs of him after his parents say he went hiking in the park. However, he has not been found yet, and authorities scaled back the search on Monday.
The FBI is asking anyone with information about the case to contact them at 1-800-CALL-FBI.
