Two days after the last time the social media influencer spoke to her mother, Laundrie was spotted causing a stir at the Merry Piglets restaurant in Jackson Hole, Wyoming.
The person of interest was reportedly seen "aggressively" arguing with employees of the restaurant over what seemed to be the bill on Friday afternoon, August 27. He allegedly left the building and returned multiple times throughout the argument, and was so rude that Petito later apologized to the staff for his behavior.
Nina Celie Angelo witnessed the incident alongside her boyfriend, Matthew England, but she didn't realize at first that the couple at the Merry Piglets were the same ones splashed all over every news channel until England brought it up to her.
"He goes, ‘Nina, that was the couple fighting at the restaurant. And it stopped me in my tracks," The witness explained. "I felt like the blood left my body. I was like, ‘Oh my God, I completely forgot about that incident.’"
"I have chills right now," Angelo went on as she recalled that day. "It’s crazy because it wasn’t just like we passed them on the street. It was a full-blown incident."
England also added that the potential suspect was being verbally aggressive with only women on staff including a hostess, a waitress, and the restaurant manager.
The 23-year-old returned to his parent's home in Florida less than a week later without his girlfriend, and refused to cooperate with police after she was reported missing.
On September 19, an unidentified body was found in Wyoming and following an autopsy was later confirmed to be the rising TikTok star.
As OK! previously reported, the search for Laundrie continues. As of September 22 he has been MIA for over a week.
