Dog said he believes Laundrie – the fugitive fiance of slain hiker Gabby Petito (pictured together) – may be a ‘serial killer’[/caption]
Describing posts on Laundrie’s Facebook, Dog said: “There are pictures of demonic angels standing there with the sword, and the throat bleeding. There is blood squirting from their eyes”[/caption]
“I’m thinking more and more about him being maybe a serial killer, not just a killer of Gabby,” Dog – real name Duane Chapman – said of Laundrie.
Dog explained that he relies heavily on social media profiles when tracking down fugitives.
In Laundrie’s case, he said: “What [my wife] Francie and I found on that Facebook is absolutely, I can say, terrifying.”
He continued: “There are pictures of demonic angels standing there with the sword, and the throat bleeding. There is blood squirting from their eyes.”
He said when his wife Francie saw Laundrie’s posts, they gave her “goosebumps.”
Dog said he also pays close attention to the books a fugitive reads.

Laundrie, he claimed, is a big fan of “serial killer books.”
“The books he read are unbelievable,” he said. “This kid Brian has taken those books, obviously, to heart.”

Internet sleuths previously uncovered Laundrie’s apparent interest in the “dark side”[/caption]

“This is what happens when your kid is looking at those kinds of things, it catches on, and it’s demons and it’s blood and it’s this and it’s that, look what that led to.”
Dog said he believes Laundrie “didn’t just become a killer overnight,” but rather through a culmination of “demonic” things he was exposed to.
“A killer is made, and he is built, to be a killer,” he said. “He built himself to be that by looking at the dark side stuff.”
While Laundrie is considered a person of interest in Gabby’s death, he has not officially been named a suspect by authorities.
Internet sleuths previously uncovered Laundrie’s apparent interest in the “dark side”.
The fugitive wrote in an Instagram post that he and Gabby read the horror-satire novel Lullaby by Chuck Palahniuk.
He said: “Reading is different than any other consumption of media, it takes more effort than staring at a screen half alive, it allows you to use your brain rather than melt it, and there is no author more stimulation to me than Chuck Palahniuk.”
Lullaby, published in 2002, tells the story of journalist Carl Streator, who is writing an article about crib death when he notices a strange connection between the deaths of the babies and those of his own wife and infant.
He then finds out that his wife and child had died after he read them a “culling song” from a book.
Streator unintentionally memorizes the rhyme and becomes a serial killer who kills people over minor annoyances.
And online sleuths also discovered a series of chilling artworks on his social media pages.
One haunting piece shows what appears to be a man wearing a wolf mask holding a blood-soaked knife.
Another post dated July 15 2020 is captioned: “Grim Reaper leading sheep to the slaughter” and shows a herd of sheep surrounded by ghoulish figures wielding scythes.
Laundrie was reported missing by his parents on September 17 – days after allegedly telling them that he was going for a hike in the Carlton Reserve in Sarasota, Florida.
Dog has continued to scour the Fort de Soto campground and its surrounding islands after receiving a tip-off that the Laundries had camped there on September 6.
The reality TV star’s daughter Lyssa Chapman says “big news” on the hunt for Laundrie could be revealed today.
She tweeted: “I’m hoping tomorrow I’ll be able to share some BIG news with you guys.
“Having to stay tight-lipped for now… trust the process.” She ended the post with a crossed fingers emoji.
The tweet sent internet sleuths crazy as Twitter “detectives” speculated “something is happening.”
Cops and FBI agents continue to scour the Carlton Reserve.
But, investigators appeared to refute the alleged findings.
Josh Taylor, a spokesperson for the North Port Police Department, told CNN: “No campsite was found out there.
“Is it possible that they thought that there might be a campsite out there or something they may have seen from the air but when they got on the ground that’s not what it turned out to be? “Sure I think that’s a possibility.”
There have been a number of alleged sightings since Laundrie was reported missing, including in parts of Florida, Mexico, Canada, and Montana.
Dog has been served with a $1.3million lawsuit accusing him of “racist and homophobic behavior” before and after filming his axed reality show Dog Unleashed. He vehemently denies the allegations.
