Questions have swirled about how police have handled Gabby Petito ’s case, including why they allowed her boyfriend to disappear.
found and her death declared a homicide, police have faced questions and criticism for how they handled the case.Many are asking why Florida’s North Port Police Department didn’t obtain a search warrant for her boyfriend Brian Laundrie’s home before he disappeared, for instance, or immediately interrogate him.
Walter Zalisko, a former New Jersey police officer and Florida police chief, said the criticism is warranted “to an extent.” He said North Port police “did a poor job of investigating” Laundrie initially.“Once they believed he was a possible suspect, or a person of interest, they should have stationed a police officer at his house for 24 hours a day until they had more evidence to secure a search warrant,” said Zalisko, president of investigative agency Global Investigative Group. “They should have at least had him under surveillance in a secret capacity. They have made a few mistakes in the initial steps of this investigation.”
A spokesperson for North Port police, Joshua Taylor, said in a statement: “There will be a time and place to explain why things were done and why and when.”“This is an ongoing investigation and our obligation is to protect its integrity,” he said. “We cannot release details of our investigative steps at this time. Please understand, it is a process that has to be followed to ensure justice.” headtopics.comRead more: Yahoo Singapore »
