‘Justice 4 Gabby’ banner flown over Brian Laundrie’s parents’ house

One TikTok user thinks it’s high time Brian Laundrie’s parents got the message.

A single-engine plane flew a banner over the Florida fugitive’s parents’ house Monday with a simple message: “Justice 4 Gabby – TikTok Times up.”

The display was the brainchild of TikToker Justin Shepherd and his social media supporters.

“It came up on one of my TikTok videos and my followers wanted to do it,” Shepherd told WFLA-TV. “All of a sudden, Venmo donations started coming in.”

The stunt is the latest dig at Laundrie’s parents, who have been hounded ever since their 23-year-old son fled authorities who seek to question him in the disappearance and death of his girlfriend, Gabby Petito.

Protesters have paraded outside the North Port home for days and Petito supporters from around the country have buried the Laundries with flower deliveries and cards in memory of the slain 22-year-old Long Island native.

Shepherd said it cost him $2,550 to rent the plane for two hours and have the banner flown over the house, with donations from supporters helping to foot the bill.

Petito and Laundrie were on a cross-country trip when she vanished in late August.

Laundrie returned home in Petito’s white 2012 Ford Transit van without her on Sept. 1, and quickly lawyered up and refused to talk to police.

On Sept. 19 authorities found Petito’s remains at a remote Wyoming campground — two days after Laundrie’s parents reported him missing.

He’s now the subject of a massive FBI-led manhunt.

A Wyoming coroner ruled Petito’s death a homicide but has not released her cause of death. Laundrie has not been charged in her death but is sought on an arrest warrant on federal fraud charges for using someone else’s bank card.

The FBI has not said if the card belonged to Petito.
