  • The father of Brian Laundrie was captured in photos removing protest signs from his front yard.

  • New York Post obtained images of Chris Laundrie in front of his Florida home on Saturday.

  • Laundrie was reportedly removing a sign that read: “What if this happened to Cassie?”

The father of 23-year-old Brian Laundrie was captured removing protest signs from his front yard on Saturday, the New York Post reported.

Photos obtained by the outlet show 62-year-old Chris Laundrie taking the sign from his lawn that referenced his daughter, Cassie. According to the report, the sign which was placed next to a photo of Petito read: “What if this happened to Cassie?”

Cassie Laundrie, Brian’s sister, has recently broken her silence since he disappeared in mid-September. As Insider’s Natalie Musumeci reported, Cassie said her family has received death threats, resulting in multiple police visits at their Lakewood Ranch, Florida home. She also previously addressed protesters who were on her lawn, telling them she had no idea about Petito’s disappearance when she was with the family at a campground on September 6.

Her brother returned home to North Port, Florida following a cross-country road trip without Petito on September 1. Petito’s mother reported her missing 10 days later and he was named a person of interest by police shortly after.

Authorities have been desperately searching for her brother in Florida’s Carlton Reserve after he was reported missing on September 17. Earlier this month, Chris Laundrie joined law enforcement in the manhunt to locate his son, but made “no discoveries.”

Petito’s body was discovered near Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming on September 19. A Wyoming coroner determined that the cause of death was manual strangulation. Brian has not been charged in connection to her death, but the authorities issued an arrest warrant alleging he used an “unauthorized” credit card.

The Laundrie home – where the couple lived – has been swarmed by protesters since the case garnered national media attention. Last week, two protesters were caught on video banging on their door, calling the family “dirty Laundries.”
