Brian Laundrie, the sole person of interest in the homicide of his girlfriend, Gabby Petito, doesn’t appear to have a great reputation, at least if what one of his former co-workers said is true.
According to the New York Post, Michael Livingston, a former co-worker of Laundrie’s at a nursery where the two worked, described Laundrie as the “kind of a guy who would get pissed off pretty quick,” adding that Laundrie’s hands always appeared to be clean even though he worked with plants and soil all day.
Livingston was careful in his recollection of Laundrie’s habits and personality in an interview with Fox News Digital, saying that while it’s impossible to know if he had the mind of a killer, some of his personality traits were unbecoming.
“He never came across as the kind of person that would be the killing type, but he did have that tendency to be — I don’t wanna say the wrong thing and make him sound worse than he already is — he was kind of a guy who would get pissed off pretty quick,” Livingston said.
Livingston went on to describe Laundrie’s personality as being that of a “chameleon,” adding, “I remember from back then he was a big yoga nut, always telling me, ‘I gotta worry about my zen.’ And I thought he was this weirdo.”
Notably, Laundrie’s former co-worker revealed that he’d once met Gabby Petito when she came to their work to visit Brian.
He noted that while it didn’t appear that Laundrie was abusive or mean to her, he reportedly would become jealous when she spoke with other men. “He would come over and do the boyfriend thing, put his arm around her, give her a kiss — very possessive.”
In a late-breaking update, it was revealed Wednesday that several items belonging to Laundrie were discovered at a Florida park where his parents had arrived the night before to search for him. Human remains were also discovered at the same site, and a coroner was dispatched to the scene, according to NBC News.
Depending on the results of tests the FBI will run on the remains, the search for Laundrie could soon come to an end. If the remains do not belong to him, the discovery of the items belonging to Laundrie could provide new clues as to his whereabouts.
