Hours after the Wyoming coroner revealed that Gabby Petito died of strangulation, two protesters were captured on TV beating the door of her fugitive boyfriend Brian Laundrie’s parents in Florida and yelling, “You guys like to strangle people!”
The footage posted by Fox News shows a man hurling a verbal attack outside the North Port home of Chris and Roberta Laundry.
“Come on, dirty Laundries!” he shouted. “Come on, you guys like to strangle people!”
He urged the couple to “speak up soon” and promised to be back later.
After the protesters left, Chris was seen behind a screen as he appeared to lock the door, according to Fox News.
A few minutes later, a vehicle passed the property and the driver honked the horn. Police arrived at the address a short time later.
The Laundries’ home has become something of a tourist attraction amid the sensational case of the young couple’s ill-fated cross-country trip, which ended in Petito’s strangulation death.
Laundrie returned home without her on Sept. 1, nearly three weeks before her body was found at a Wyoming campground on Sept. 19. He disappeared last month after his parents claimed he went for a hike at the Carlton Reserve, where authorities have been searching since Sept. 18.
The fugitive has not been charged in Petito’s death but is named on a federal arrest warrant for allegedly using her stolen bank card after she disappeared.
Reporters have been camped out at his parents’ home, where a steady stream of protesters and gawkers have passed through in the past few weeks. Some motorists snap photos of the single-level home as they drive by, the International Business Times reports.
Journalist Jonathan Lee Riches posted a video on Twitter of a woman driving back and forth in front of the house, playing the 1984 song “Somebody’s Watching Me” by Rockwell.
“All I want is to be left alone in my average home, but why do I always feel like I’m in the Twilight zone? And I always feel like somebody’s watching me and I have no privacy (ooh ooh),” the lyrics say.
