National security expert expects Brian Laundrie’s parents to be 'summoned to the grand jury' momentarily

Frank Figliuzzi was a former FBI counterintelligence assistant director. He predicted that Brian Laundrie’s parents would soon be summoned before a grand jury.
Figliuzzi stated, "I would expect this to happen momentarily. They will be brought before a grand jury. If they refuse to cooperate, they could face contempt or obstruction charges." "There is no parental child privilege and I thought we would see them summoned before the grand jury. It's a federal case. We now have an indictment.

CNBC did not reach out to the attorneys representing the Laundrie family.

After the death of Gabby Petito, Brian Laundrie was indicted by a federal grand jury. Laundrie wasn't indicted for the murder of Petito, but rather for the unauthorized use a debit card that she had after her death.

Indictment claims that Laundrie used a Capitol One Bank debit credit card for purchases exceeding $1,000 between Aug. 30th and Sept. 1 without authorization.

Figliuzzi stated on CNBC's "The News With Shepard Smith” that the use of "unauthorized usage" in the indictment was revealing.

Authorities are certain that Gabby wasn't able to authorize Gabby to use her credit card. This means that they are closer to fixing Gabby's death date. That's why you're seeing 'unauthorized usage,' which indicates she was likely deceased at the time," Figliuzzi (NBC News national security analyst) said.

Laundrie has not been seen since September 14, when he said to his family that he was going on a hike in Florida’s Carlton Preserve.
