Dog the Bounty Hunter has decided to put his expertise into the search for Brian Laundrie while the FBI also tries to find him following the death of Gabby Petito. And Donald Trump Jr. jumped on Twitter to put his faith in Dog, whose real name is Duane Chapman.
On September 29, retweeting a link to a Fox News report about the manhunt, Trump Jr. wrote, “I have much more faith in Dog The Bounty Hunter finding this scumbag than the FBI.” And on September 30, Trump Jr. posted a poll on Twitter, asking: “Who do you think will find Brian Laundrie first?” with two response options: “Dog the Bounty Hunter” or “The entire FBI.” A full 97,227 people participated in his poll, with 93.5% voting for Dog and 6.5% voting for the FBI.
Chapman announced that he was getting involved because he lost his daughter to a car accident when she was 23. She was just about the same age as Petito, who died at 22. “Because I lost a daughter at about the same age, I know what the parents feel like,” he said to Fox News. “And you want justification. You want the guy behind bars.”
Announcing his arrival in Florida, Chapman added a video to Twitter on September 29, saying: “[E]arlier today we launched an active and specific search in a key area based on the intelligence we are receiving and researching.”
