Dog the Bounty Hunter fears Gabby Petito was killed 'brutally' because of crucial clues in autopsy


DOG the Bounty Hunter has said he fears Gabby Petito was killed "brutally" because of crucial clues in her autopsy.

In an exclusive interview with The Sun, Dog said: "I have never seen the findings of an autopsy to take this long to announce."

Reality TV star Dog – real name Duane Chapman – said: "If there was a brutal murder…people are going to go crazy."

And while Dog was keen to stress he "can't speculate" about the manner of Gabby's death, he added: "I have heard that she had been there a few days before they found her.

"So I know that area's got a lot of animals and predators and wildlife so, but I am just like everyone else I'd like to know how she passed. "

Gabby's body was found in a Wyoming national park on September 19.

The manner of her death was ruled a homicide though a cause of death has not yet been confirmed, pending the release of an autopsy report.

Days earlier her fiance Brian Laundrie was reported missing by his parents after returning home from the couple's cross country trip alone on September 1.

Dog is now on the hunt for Brian after the FBI launched a million dollar search for him. On Thursday Brian's dad Chris joined that search.

Recalling his own daughter's death an emotional Dog told The Sun: "I know that my daughter was killed at the same age.

"And for a few weeks they didn't tell me that the car actually rolled over on my daughter's skull, I’m going to cry.

"And when I heard that it was like oh my god. So I remember these exact points of time when Barbara Katy passed away.

"So, I'm glad I didn't hear that right away."

Dog believes the delay in releasing the findings of the autopsy may be an "act of mercy."

He added: "So I think it's more of mercy from the federal government and coroner to go out very slowly.

"I think if she was suffocated they would have announced that right away.

"I think it's more than that."

Internet sleuths have theorized that Gabby was pregnant when she was killed.

While there is no evidence to suggest that she was, some claimed to have spotted a sonogram in a YouTube video showing the couple's repurposed van "abandoned" at the roadside on the day Gabby was last seen alive.

The FBI is currently withholding the results of the autopsy for reasons unknown.

Famed forensic pathologist Dr. Michael Baden told Fox News on Tuesday that withholding the slain vlogger's cause of death is "unusual" and only typically happens when investigators are "missing something."

Dog on Thursday wildly speculated that Gabby's fiance Brian Laundrie could be a “serial killer” and is obsessed with the “dark side” after claiming to unearth the fugitive’s “demonic past."

The TV star said that he and his team build a profile of the fugitive they are trying to catch, honing in on their interests and hobbies.

He told The Sun: “I’m thinking more and more about him being maybe a serial killer, not just a killer of Gabby. The books he read are unbelievable.”

Dog recalled that he would get “mad” at his kids for reading the Dungeon and Dragons stories as he’s a believer in Jesus.

The reality TV star claimed: “A couple of the books that he's been reading are 10 times worse than Dungeon and Dragons. This kid, Brian has taken those books, obviously to heart.

“And this is what happens when your kid is looking at those kinds of things.

“He just overnight just didn't become a killer. A killer is made, and he is built to be or she, a killer.

“He built himself to be that by looking at that kind of, let's say the dark side stuff. There are pictures of demons all over it."

The FBI issued an arrest warrant, accusing Brian of swiping a Capital One debit card between August 31 and September 1.

Brian remains at large but there have been a series of alleged sightings in parts of Florida, Mexico, Canada, and along the Appalachian Trail. Most potential leads have led to dead ends.

He is considered a person of interest in Gabby's death but has yet to officially be named a suspect.

Exclusive footage obtained by The Sun on Thursday shows Dog as he was served with a $1.3million lawsuit accusing him of “racist and homophobic behavior."

The lawsuit accuses him of “racist and homophobic behavior" before and after filming his axed reality show Dog Unleashed.

Footage shows as the reality star is approached with the court documents during his search for Laundrie in Florida.

Dog has vehemently denied the allegations.
