(RepublicanInformer.com)- The neighbors of the family of Brian Laundrie, the man wanted by the police in connection to the murder of YouTube star Gabby Petito, are reportedly cashing in off the media frenzy over the story by charging various news outlets as much as $3,500 per week just to camp on their front yard.
TMZ reported that ABC News, Fox News, and CBS News are among the networks paying money to the family to camp out next to the property where Laundrie was last seen.
The reporters are still camping outside of the North Port, Florida home in the hopes of catching sight of police officers returning to the property, or even Laundrie himself going back home.
There’s been some shock about the story and debate about whether it’s ethical, but we’re sure you’ll agree that average people raking in money from the mainstream media outlets is usually only a good thing…
Even if it is pretty distasteful.
22-year-old Gabby Petito was tragically discovered dead after being reported missing on September 11. Her body was discovered on September 19 in Wyoming and a post-mortem revealed that she was murdered. As it stands, missing Laundrie is the only person of interest in the case.
The police still pay close attention to parents Christopher and Roberta Laundrie, and have questions about what they may know about their son’s whereabouts.
