The family of the murderer Brian Laundrie demanded an apology from the celebrity version of “Jeopardy!” after the game show used a clue that referred to his death.
Laundrie’s remains were found in a Florida swamp during a police investigation into the death of his 22-year-old fiancée Gabby Petito during a cross-country road trip that they were documenting on social media in 2021. Police said he confessed to the murder of Petito in a message left in a notebook that was found near his remains.
The family of the murderer said they were “appalled” that the game show used the case to create one of its clues.
It was revealed that Brian Laundrie, a fugitive had ended his days at Florida’s Myakkahatchee Creek in 2021, where these long-eared and toothy creatures live.
The question was: “What are alligators?”
This clue was offensive to many viewers who took to social media to criticize the show and the clue.
“What is the matter with you?” ” Are you complete idiots? ”
The response was also received from the attorney representing Laundrie’s family.
The entire Laundrie Family was shocked by this incident and agreed with many of the comments on social media. Steven Bertolino is an attorney who stated that he believes an apology should be made.
Many have criticized the actions of the Laundrie family after Petito was reported missing because Brian Petito drove back to their home and stayed there for many days without answering questions about her disappearance. He then walked away from the home and hiked into the Myakkahatchee Creek Environmental Park where his remains were later found by police.
Investigators said that the man likely committed suicide through the use of a gun found nearby.
