Brian Laundrie's parents told cops where to find their son in exchange for immunity, his close friend believes
BRIAN Laundrie’s parents may have told cops where to find their son in exchange for immunity, his close friend has speculated.
Laundrie’s long-time pal told The Sun exclusively that they believe “Brian’s parents made a deal with the district attorney for immunity.”
The tipster, who wishes to remain anonymous, revealed the information came from someone who knows Laundrie's family and is a close friend of the pair.
They said: "We believe his mom and dad struck some sort of secret deal of immunity between either the Florida DA or the FBI.
"Obviously, they want to save themselves and every little bit they have left."
The friend said that the agreement most likely would require the parents to "provide the necessary evidence to close the case" and help investigators find their son in exchange for "immunity for all charges of harboring, assisting, or whatever it might be."
The friend said that Laundrie's notebook could contain clues to solve Petito's death, whom a medical coroner determined had died due to strangulation.
"I think this is the outcome we expected," the friend told The Sun after Laundrie's remains were found and subsequently identified.
"I don't know if it's the one we would ask for," the friend.
‘MADE A DEAL’
The revelation comes after web sleuths have similarly speculated Laundrie's parents "made a deal" with the FBI to reveal what they know about where the location of his body might be on the condition they were free from prosecution.
In a TV interview, the lawyer for Laundrie's family said "conversations were had with respect to certain charges” insisted "no deal was cut" after claims were put to him.
But internet detectives believe there were "clearly negotiations" that they claim led to Laundrie's parents telling authorities information related to where their son's body was – in exchange for immunity from being prosecuted.
