Heightened media attention gripped the country in August after the disappearance and death of 22-year-old YouTuber Gabby Petito in Wyoming. At about the time of Petito's disappearance, her fiancee, Brian Laundrie, became a person of interest and an ensuing manhunt followed, ending with his remains discovered in a Florida reserve in October.

The attention on the case has not completely subsided, as some reports have shifted their focus to Laundrie's parents, Chris and Roberta Laundrie. The Daily Mail, New York Post, The Sun, People, Fox News and others have extensively covered the Florida couple.

Chris and Roberta have reportedly been assisting investigators. From having their home declared an “active crime scene” to turning over their firearms to the police, the couple remain in the spotlight several weeks after Brian's death.

Chris, 62, and Roberta, 55, are small business owners living in North Port, Florida, on the southwest coast of the state. They opened Juicer Services in 2017, a company that sells commercial juicing equipment. The business is listed as “temporarily closed.”

Roberta is listed as working for the Suffolk County Government in Long Island, New York, from 2011 to 2020, in an office position. She is also the vice president of her juicing business. Chris is the president of Juicer Services.

The couple also have a 32-year-old daughter, Cassie, who has appeared on ABC's "Good Morning America" to discuss Brian.

Chris and Robert put their 10,000-square-foot house for sale weeks after Brian's death.

The family's attorney recently revealed that they also turned over their firearms to law enforcement when they realized there was one handgun that was not in its case. This was the same day authorities found out Brian’s whereabouts were unknown.

Chris and Roberta have not yet faced any charges. Laundrie’s family attorney has also repeatedly dismissed conspiracy theories claiming the two were involved in covering up their son’s death.
