Parents Claim Son Is ‘Unavailable’ To Speak To Police After His Girlfriend Goes Missing During Road Trip

The parents of a man whose girlfriend mysteriously disappeared during a road trip the couple was on together have claimed that their son is “unavailable” to speak with authorities about the matter. Gabby Petito, 22 and from Long Island, was last seen in Wyoming’s Grand Teton National Park in late August with her boyfriend, Brian Laundrie. However, after her family filed a missing person’s report on September 11 after not hearing from her in 13 days, Laundrie suddenly left their 2012 Ford Transit van with Florida plates behind, flew home, got a lawyer, and has refused to speak with authorities.

Laundrie’s father, Christopher, won’t even say where he is. Approached on Monday, September 13, Christopher refused to comment on his son’s whereabouts. Brian is apparently “unavailable” to answer any questions about the circumstances around Petito’s disappearance and won’t do so willingly, if at all.

The North Port police aren’t exactly doing anything to force the issue. As a spokesperson for the force, Josh Taylor, said: “We have not talked with him, we would love to talk to him. He is under no obligation to talk to us – and he has not. And we don’t even know yet if a crime happened.” However, they did admit in a separate statement that “the circumstances are odd.”

Petito’s mother is hopeful that her daughter will come home safely. “I believe a mother’s instinct is the most powerful,” Nicole Schmidt said during a press conference, as per the New York Post. She added: “As a mom, I had concerns about a daughter going on a road trip in general, but I felt safe, they were together. They had a plan, an itinerary, and we were excited for them. Everyone wanted to be doing what they were doing.”

Schmidt last heard from her daughter on August 30. She told Fox News that she’s unsure of whether Petito ever left Grand Teton or if the last messages she received from Gabby were actually from her. “I don’t know if she left Grand Teton or no. I did receive a text from her on the 27th and the 30th, but I don’t know if it was technically her or not, because it was just a text. I didn’t verbally speak to her,” she said.

Petito’s family is urging Brian Laundrie to speak to police. As Schmidt said in a statement released via her lawyer on Wednesday, September 15: “Brian claims he wants to sit in the background while we search for Gabby in the wilderness of the Grand Teton and Yellowstone national parks. Brian left Gabby in the wilderness with grizzly bears and wolves while he sits in the comfort of his home. In his home! Brian, how could you do this to Gabby? Brian, whatever happened in Wyoming, happened. The only thing you can control is what you do now. Tell us where Gabby is.” Sadly, I feel that plea will fall on deaf ears.

Demi Lovato Says We Should Stop Calling Extraterrestrials ‘Aliens’ Because It’s Offensive

Published

Demi Lovato has some very… interesting opinions that they’ve been voicing lately, but their latest outcry is perhaps one of the most bizarre yet. The ‘Dancing with the Devil’ singer is campaigning against the idea of referring to extraterrestrial beings as “aliens” as they believe it’s extremely offensive to those who visit us from other planets. This despite the fact that the term has been used for many decades and is referring to beings that arguably don’t even exist.

Yes, calling other human beings “aliens” can be offensive. Referring to immigrants or refugees as “aliens” has a certain connotation that can be offensive as it implies that they don’t belong and are “othered.” However, using this term for, you know, mythical creatures of which there’s no proof they even exist (don’t tell Demi Lovato that) is a whole other matter.

Demi thinks we just need to call them extraterrestrials or ETs. When discussing visitors to Earth from other planets, we should welcome them by simply referring to them with more neutral language rather than using the term “aliens” even though any beings from other planets likely won’t even know what the hell “aliens” means or even think or speak in the same way we do here on Earth.

So why does Demi feel this way? As they told Pedestrian.TV in a recent interview, Demi said they think that the word “alien” is derogatory in any context, so it should be avoided at all costs. “I really think that if there was anything out there that would want to do that to us, it would have happened by now,” they said. “But, I think that we have to stop calling them aliens because aliens is a derogatory term for anything. That’s why I like to call them ETs! So yeah, that’s a little tidbit. A little information that I learned.”

By the way, Demi has a new TV show about extraterrestrials coming out. It’ll be on Peacock TV and it’s called Unidentified with Demi Lovato. The show follows Demi and their friend Matthew and their sister Dallas while they look for “the truth about the UFO phenomena.” Hopefully, if they find anything, the ETs will be impressed at their welcoming, inclusive language.

Woman Says Her Pet Toucan’s Extreme Separation Anxiety Means She Can’t Ever Go On Vacation

Published

A woman who adopted a pet toucan two years ago has admitted she struggles witn looking after the bird at times. Janelle Tsao, 35, took Touki into her home in Los Angeles but the animal’s severe separation anxiety has meant that she can’t leave him alone in the house and hasn’t been on vacation since she got him.

Toucans only bond with one human. As birds, toucans are monogamous both in terms of mating and the humans that they bond with. This means that whenever Janelle leaves the room, Touki will “croak call or screech loudly” until she comes back, however long it takes. “It can be very annoying, like a screaming parrot,” she said.

Having Touki is like having a child. Toucans aren’t small birds, so having such a large one in the house poses its challenges. “It’s like having a child, he’s beautiful, intuitive and always curious,” Janelle explains. “These birds are like flying toddlers or monkeys – they will get into everything. Yesterday, I was chopping tomatoes and placed them in a bowl with a lid, which he isn’t allowed to have, they’re too acidic. He flies down to the counter and lifted the lid and stole a tomato, then he flew up to the second floor of our loft and quickly swallowed it before I could even start climbing!”

His diet is pretty expensive. Touki doesn’t just eat plain birdseed – he eats lots of fresh and exotic fruits and vegetables including blueberries, palm dates, lychee, and sweet potatoes. This ends up costing about $80 a month.

Oh, and he poops a lot too. Apparently, toucans poop every five to 10 minutes, which is crazy! Touki tends to do it while he’s flying around the house, and Janelle shares it can be “any color of the rainbow.” This means they’ve had to poo-proof most of the house. “We plasticize all of our couches, clean up any poops that don’t make the designated liners,” she said. “Caretaking for a toucan is high maintenance!”

Janelle wouldn’t recommend a toucan as a pet, but she loves Touki. She and her girlfriend, 40-year-old Arielle Zarutsky, saw him at a breeder’s in 2019 and fell in love with him. “Our hearts just melted. He was very quiet and I guess shy in the cage,” she recalled. “I think it’s because he was injured and he had scab like things in his feathers. I made the commitment right there, that I would do whatever it took to love and care for him. It was always a dream of mine to care for a toucan.”

Police Find And Arrest Prosthetic Leg Thief With Stolen Limb Strapped To His Head

Published

An Oklahoma man was arrested for armed robbery, the Tulsa Police Department said, after he reportedly stole a prosthetic leg from the victim. As Fox25 reports, Kevion Hooks approached the man with a large metal spike in his hand before taking his backpack and limb and asking how much both were worth. It didn’t take officers long to catch up with him and put him behind bars.

Hooks gave no reasoning for his robbery of the leg. However, given his curiosity as to the worth of the item, it’s clear he had an intention of selling them on for money. Thankfully, he never got that far.

When police found Hooks, he was wearing the prosthetic leg. He actually had it strapped to his head when they arrested him. It’s again unclear what made Hooks do this, but from the looks of his mugshot, it seems safe to say that drugs likely played a part in what went down.

Police removed the leg from Hooks’ head. They then returned it to the rightful owner, they say. It was not mentioned whether or not the backpack and its contents were found and returned as well.
