Dog the Bounty Hunter is 'obstructing' Brian Laundrie search, PI claims as internet mocks him for Monster can 'evidence'September 30, 2021
DOG the Bounty Hunter is guilty of an "obstruction of justice" in his search for Brian Laundrie as the internet mocks him for finding a Monster can as "evidence," a private investigator claims.
Bill Warner, who runs a PI service close to the search area in Florida, blasted it as "one big publicity stunt" as he claimed that Dog is taking legitimate tips away from the FBI.
Dog, whose real name is Duane Chapman, began searching for 23-year-old Laundrie on Saturday, arriving at his parent's house before the cops were called.
He is currently leading a search in Fort De Soto Park in Flordia, 75 miles away from the Laundries' home, after receiving a tip that Brian is in the area.
Dog has suggested that Laundrie is moving from island to island in a canoe as he evades arrest and questioning over the disappearance and death of his fiancee Gabby Petito.
He also claims he believes Laundrie is alive and he is close to catching him.
Yet Florida PI Warner says that Dog'sinvolvement in the case is "outrageous."
"He's doing a lot of harm here," Warner exclusively told The Sun on Thursday.
"He's telling people on social media to call him, that's obstruction of justice to call him instead of the FBI.
"All over his wanted poster is 'call Dog the Bounty Hunter, I want to take care of this.'

"You can't do that.
"You're taking all the possible real, legitimate tips away from the FBI to Dog the Bounty Hunter. And what's he gonna do with them?"
Warner said he was glad to see that law enforcement isn't "biting what he's giving out."
"I hope not. Because it's gonna cost a lot of money."
"I think this is all one big publicity stunt by Dog the Bounty Hunter," he added.
"And that's outrageous. Outrageous that he's calling all this attention to himself and to Fort De Soto when Brian left there on the eighth of this month.
"He's not in the park."
'HE CAME BACK'
It was revealed earlier this week that Laundrie and his parents visited the park in early September, where he also traveled with Gabby earlier this year.
Dog claimed that the three of them went into the park but only two came out.
However, Warner noted that there was a witness who saw Laundrie outside his home after this.
Warner has claimed that he does not believe Laundrie is in Fort De Soto Park but has instead fled to the Appalachian Trail.
"There were several reports from eyeball witnesses who live across the street from the Laundrie home that Brian was there between the eighth and the fourteenth [of September]," he said.
"And this is from a verified neighbor who lives directly across the street. So he [Laundrie] was there from the eighth to the 14th. He didn't stay at the edge of Fort De Soto park with his parents.
"He came back."
NEW DOG SHOW
And Warner slammed Dog again after news broke on Wednesday night that he had pitched a new TV show.
Variety reported that Thinkfactory Media is currently shopping a new series starring Dog.
The production company is also behind the reality shows Marriage Boot Camp, Mama June: From Not to Hot, and Rat in the Kitchen.
"I think his production company is behind the money for this whole scenario with Dog the Bounty Hunter out on the islands," Warner insisted.
Yesterday the Dog and his crew sniffed out a fresh Monster Energy Ultra Gold can at the site deep in the woods of Shell Island near Fort De Soto Park.
The Monster drink appeared to show no signs of rust or faded colors suggesting it had just recently been discarded, according to Fox News.
The find has not been confirmed to be Laundrie's.
DOG SLAMMED ON SOCIAL MEDIA
It comes as social media users slam Dog over the case and the can "discovery" in particular.
Some branded him "Dog the publicity hunter."
"DOG, go home….get your publicity elsewhere….this thing is tragic!" one person wrote.
"Literally touching potential “evidence” without a glove…? I’m dead," another said of the picture of the can.
Others claimed that it was obvious the can was not Laundrie's.
"He wouldn't litter. If anyone knows him he is an environmentalist," one user said.
"Nothing about that makes sense plus he ate healthily and wouldn't be drinking monster."
Dog has high-profile backers including Donald Trump Jr., however.
"I have much more faith in Dog The Bounty Hunter finding this scumbag than the FBI," he tweeted on Wednesday.
FBI AT LAUNDRIE HOME
On Thursday, FBI agents arrived at Brian Laundrie's North Port home to "collect personal items for K9s to track his scent" as the search for Gabby Petito's fiancé intensifies.
The news comes as the FBI is said to be investigating reports of a burner phone bought on the day Laundrie went missing.
"The FBI is at the Laundrie home today to collect some personal items belonging to Brian that will assist the canines in their search for Brian. There is nothing more to this," Laundrie family attorney Steven Bertolino said about the FBI's visit on Thursday.
Laundrie reportedly purchased a phone at the AT&T store on September 14 with an "older woman."
That's the last day Laundrie's parents Chris and Roberta, say they saw their son when he went off for a hike and he didn't return.
Authorities had already seized Laundrie's cell phone, but mystery surrounds Gabby's mobile.
The 23-year-old has continued to evade federal authorities since he was reported missing on September 17.
Laundrie's parents previously said they fear their son may hurt himself after leaving their Forth Port home without his personal belongings.
Warner branded Laundrie a "mastermind" for leaving behind his wallet, ID, driver's license, and credit cards, claiming he appeared "well aware of law enforcement tracking techniques."
"This is usually what people on the run do," he told The Sun about Laundrie's disappearance.
"They just go dark, hide everything. They don't take a car, they don't take a phone. They don't take any ID, but they can't be identified."
Warner said that there is the possibility that "he's dead in the Carlton Reserve, that he went in there to kill himself.
"But that doesn't seem to be true either. Because they've searched through every inch of the Carlton Reserve for over a week and they found nothing, even when there were dogs.
"If you're on the run, you want to go someplace you feel comfortable with, someplace you've been before, someplace you may be able to get help," he said.
"He knows where all the little places are to camp out [on the Appalachian Trail]. It's it just makes sense.
"Brian has expertise. He's an elite hiker right up his alley.
