“We are praying for Gabby’s family as yet another day ends with seemingly more questions than answers though it does seem the search for Brian is indeed over,” Chapman, 68, told The Sun as he expressed gratitude towards authorities working the case.
From the beginning, Chapman speculated that Laundrie’s parents knew where their son was hiding and his alleged involvement in Gabby Petito’s murder.
“There will be time to ask questions such as what was the extent of the Laundries’ involvement in aiding Brian,” he said. “But now we wait.”
The FBI confirmed Wednesday that human remains were discovered in Carlton Reserve where Laundrie was thought to have been hiding out.
The remains have not been confirmed to belong to the 23-year-old but they were found near some of Laundrie’s personal items.
Chapman’s involvement in the case drew criticism from some including the Laundries’ lawyer Steve Bertolino.
