Brian Laundrie’s parents remove protest laundry baskets from their lawn

Brian Laundrie’s parents emerged from their Florida home Sunday night to remove protest laundry baskets from their front lawn – as well as a tribute poster dedicated to the fugitive’s late girlfriend, Gabby Petito.

Chris and Roberta Laundrie, who cleared about 10 white laundry baskets from their North Port property, refused to answer questions from the assembled media, according to video posted by Fox News.

“Just let me do it,” said Chris, who last week joined the weeks-long search at a sprawling nature reserve for his 23-year-old son — the sole person of interest in Petito’s disappearance and death.

Last week, a Pennsylvania woman dropped off a laundry basket and a sign reading “Dirty Laundrie come clean” on their lawn. The display — which included the sign, a box of detergent, and a bottle of bleach — stoked outrage online.

Marissa Zdazinsky, 46, of Hershey, told The Sun that she was only sending a message to Laundrie’s parents to cooperate with law enforcement.

Police and FBI continue to hunt for Brian Laundrie, who is wanted for questioning regarding the death of his girlfriend, Gabby Petitio.

Laundrie disappeared last month after his parents claimed he went for a hike at the 25,000-acre Carlton Reserve, where authorities have been searching since Sept. 18.

His parents initially told cops their son left the house on Sept. 14 — but they waited three days to report him missing despite the notoriety surrounding him.

Last week, family attorney Steven Bertolino said in a statement that the Laundries had been mistaken and said Brian actually left the house on Sept. 13.

Laundrie had returned home without his 22-year-old girlfriend on Sept. 1, nearly three weeks before her body was found at a Wyoming campground on Sept. 19.

Meanwhile, Petito’s family visited a makeshift memorial for the slain woman at North Port City Hall, where they picked up some of the items before it is removed Tuesday, according to News Nation Now.
