Photo with Gabby Petito could be key in case

A smiling Brian Laundrie was captured behind bars — in a photo with Gabby Petito at a Florida campsite that Dog the Bounty Hunter believes could hold the key to finding the dead woman’s fugitive beau.

The image — which was posted on Petito’s Instagram page in February — is tagged at the Fort De Soto Historical Fort, Fox News reported.

Laundrie, 23, who is being sought by authorities, hasn’t been accused of the Long Island native’s death but is wanted for allegedly using someone’s bank card in Wyoming in late August.

In the photo, the grinning man appears to be wearing a T-shirt featuring the Marvel character Hellboy as Petito smiles at him.

Laundrie and Petito later posted a review of the campsite in an account on The Dyrt, credited to “Gabby & Brian V.” Despite the wrong initial for Brian, the profile appeared to have been started and operated by the couple in July.

The couple described the venue as a “really nice campground, beautiful area with many hikes and easy walks, the beach, historic sites, really nice camp store and well-maintained sites,” Fox News reported.

Online sleuths noted the irony of the image showing Laundrie grasping bars.

“Wow he predicted his future,” one user wrote, The US Sun reported.

“This is exactly where you will end up,” another said.

“He better get used to that view,” a third person added.

Meanwhile, Duane “Dog” Chapman told Fox News he received a tip that Laundrie and his parents camped together at the Pinellas County site in early September.

He claims the family took two trips to Fort De Soto, from Sept. 1-3 and Sept. 6-8.

But on the Laundrie’s second trip, three people came into the park and only two left, he said.

“They were registered, went through the gate,” he said. “They’re on camera. They were here.”

Laundrie’s parents, Chris and Roberta, have denied any knowledge of or involvement in his disappearance.

Dog, who joined the hunt for Laundrie on Saturday, was seen banging on the door of Laundrie’s parents’ home in North Port, Florida before Robert called the cops — despite the fugative chaser’s vow to find their missing son.
