Following last month’s unfortunate mix-up, Brian Laundrie doppelgängers are buying special
T-shirts online to ensure they’re not confused for the infamous fugitive.
The identity-solving couture surfaced on Etsytees and other online T-shirt bazaars as the search continues for the MIA boyfriend of murdered Rhode Island native Gabby Petito.
For just $22, the shorn-headed, beard-wearing men of the world can buy a T-shirt, hoodie or crewneck sweatshirt emblazoned with the phrase: “I’m just bald. Nope! I’m not Brian Laundrie.”
The confusion-clearing clothing comes in colors ranging from white to gold and fits anyone up to a 5XL.
It’s unclear how many of the shirts have been purchased. However, as of Thursday, the item was ranked among Etsytees’ hottest items, and 10 apparently concerned clones had it in their carts, the Sun reported. (Here’s hoping this Brian Laundrie facsimile was among them.)
The T-shirt trend comes as authorities enter week three of their manhunt for Laundrie, who disappeared a day before Petito’s body was found Sept. 19 at Wyoming’s Grand Teton National Park, where the couple had been traveling together.
This week, fresh remnants of a campsite were discovered at Florida’s sprawling Carlton Reserve where the fugitive allegedly told his parents he was going on a hike. Meanwhile, authorities have also investigated several reported sightings of the missing 23-year-old in North Carolina.
