CHARLOTTE, N.C. – The attorney representing Brian Laundrie and his family is lashing out at reality TV star Dog the Bounty Hunter and America’s Most Wanted host John Walsh. Steven Bertolino reportedly told TMZ he thinks they’re using the Gabby Petito case to fuel their egos and to regain popularity. Both Dog and Walsh have now joined in on the massive manhunt for Brian Laundrie, who is the sole person of interest in Petito’s disappearance and death.
Bertolino told TMZ, “Dusty relics like that Dog and John Walsh need a tragic situation like this so they can clear the cobwebs off their names and give their publicity-hungry egos some food.”
Dog fired back at Bertolino in a statement Thursday, saying isn’t it ironic he would criticize the people trying to find Laundrie unless he didn’t want him found.
Our question of the night: do you think Dog the Bounty Hunter and John Walsh are doing more harm than good?
