Swamp Search Intensifies as Missing Influencer Confirmed Dead

Will Brian Laundrie be found in the muck at the bottom of the Carlton Reserve?

The parents of Gabriel Petito are in mourning, officially now, as authorities have confirmed that their daughter is now deceased.

Petito’s body was found over the weekend in Bridger-Teton National Forest after an improbable tip by a fellow YouTube vlogger led police to her body, which appeared to have been placed about 900 feet away from where her van was parked.

This is, of course, the same van that her fiancé Brian Laundrie returned to Florida in on September 1st, sparking a national firestorm over his unwillingness to cooperative with authorities investigating her disappearance.

Now, with Petito’s fate confirmed, (and with the coroner calling it a “homicide”), Laundrie remains missing, possibly within the vast and wild Carlton Reserve in Florida.

Search crews headed back to the Carlton Reserve in Venice to look for the 23-year-old on Wednesday morning. Around noon, the Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office SURF (Sheriff’s Underwater Recovery Force) team pulled up to the Carlton Reserve as the search continued.

“To confirm, yes, members of our Sheriff’s Underwater Recovery Force have responded to Carlton Reserve. This in addition to our Emergency Response Team, Air-1 & patrol,” the sheriff’s office tweeted. “SURF Team members are divers called upon to search bodies of water for evidence. These highly-trained deputies work in the most difficult and challenging environments imaginable. They are on call 24/7/365.”

Laundrie’s disappearance has infuriated those who’ve been following the case, especially as his parents refrained from reporting him missing from Tuesday to Friday of last week, giving what some online commenters considered a “head start” to escape.

Secret Service Shamed After Drunk Agents Assault Cab Driver in South Korea

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations.

You can tell a lot about a White House by the extracurricular nonsense that hits the press surrounding it.

For instance, after one of President Joe Biden’s dogs began biting random people on the grounds, we started hearing murmurs of just how terse and stressful the place had become, with dog behavior experts suggesting that the mood at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue might have a lot to do with the aggression.

This week, the Biden administration beget more bad behavior, but this time it wasn’t from one of the First Pets.

Two U.S. Secret Service agents in South Korea were sent stateside ahead of President Biden’s arrival following their involvement in an off-duty alcohol-related incident.

The two agents, whose identities have not been made public, are on their way back to Washington, D.C. where they will face disciplinary action, a source familiar with the matter told Fox News.

Both agents apparently became intoxicated while not on duty. One of the agents then got into an altercation with a cab driver.

There could be more trouble coming, as well.

In South Korea, officials send mediators to the scene of low-level disputes and then determine if criminal charges would be filed.

One of the agents was interviewed by authorities and no charges have been filed.

The government released one of its usual, dry, boilerplate-esque missives.

“The Secret Service is aware of an off-duty incident involving two employees which may constitute potential policy violations,” USSS chief spokesman Anthony Guglielmi told Fox News. “We have very strict protocols and policies for all employees and we hold ourselves to the highest professional standards.”

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations, with a notable incident having occurred in 2012, involving Barack Obama’s agents and a Colombian prostitute.
