A man by the name of Sam Bass has turned over footage to Florida cops of a man he said he believes is Brian Landrie, a person of interest in the murder of Gabby Petito.
Landrie, who was Petito’s fiance, was the last person to see her alive after he returned from a cross-country trip in mid August without her. Landrie immediately hired a lawyer and refused to cooperate with police after Petito’s family reported her missing on September 1.
Last week Landrie’s family reported their son missing and no one has seen or heard from him ever since — until today, allegedly. Bass has submitted a video to police that was taken by a trail camera in the wilderness in Baker, Florida. While there is no confirmation yet that it is Landrie, people have pointed out that the man’s backpack is similar. Also, Landrie’s parents told authorities their son was going for a hike last Friday and never returned.
It should be noted that Bass was never a suspect and only a person of interest in his fiance’s murder.
The couple had police called on them in Utah for a domestic dispute halfway into their trip where Petito can be seen visibly shaken and distraught after things had gotten physical. See the footage below and take our poll below to tell us what you think.

Yes, you read that headline correctly. Yesterday afternoon I was sitting on my couch minding my own black business when the unimaginable happened: an earthquake! The doors in my house began to rattle and at first I thought someone was trying to rob me, after all, this is Miami. Either that, or Casper the friendly ghost wasn’t so friendly. I got up the courage to go towards the garage and check it out. I know, it was very Caucasian brave of me, but I needed to know what was happening. As it turns out military officials said it could have been aircraft testing, and experts say they are unsure what the rattle was, but it was not an earthquake. But many local residents beg to differ, including myself. Y’all either way I am shooketh! See the WPLG news clip below.

It looks like the year 2021 told 2020 to ‘hold my beer’.
In just two short weeks, protestors terrorists have stormed the nation’s Capitol building, several government officials have resigned after working under President Trump’s administration, and now #45 is facing another impeachment. On the day of the riot at Capitol Hill, a woman was fatally shot by a secret service agent after the right-winged mob stood at the door of the meeting chambers of the House of Representatives and the Senate. Check out the video below.
Florida Data Analyst Rebekah Jones, who said she was fired by the Florida Department of Health for refusing to falsify Covid-19 statistics, is now suing the state for violating her first amendment rights.
Jones, who took upon the task to create a Covid-19 dashboard for the state and was thereafter fired back in May 2020, said she lost her job because she refused to manipulate data on the dashboard that suggested covid restrictions could be eased.
Jones told National Public Radio she was asked by a superior to change Florida’s coronavirus positivity rate from 18% to 10% so the state would appear to meet its target to reopen.
“When I went to show them what the report card would say for each county, among other things, they asked me to delete the report card because it showed that no counties, pretty much, were ready for reopening,” Jones added, “and they didn’t want to draw attention to that.”
Back in June a spokesperson for Florida Gov. Ron De Santis said the reason for Jones being fired is because she “exhibited a repeated course of insubordination during her time with the department.”
Governor DeSantis said Jones has “got issues” and said her ‘findings’ were unproven.
“This individual became known, because she alleged a conspiracy theory at the Department of Health, which is unfounded and never proven at all,” DeSantis said during one appearance. “She was fired because she wasn’t doing a good job. None of the stuff that she said was ever proven. You’d think that would be the end of it. Obviously, she’s got issues.”
Since being fired Jones had created a dashboard of her own and that’s when things got spicy.
Jones said the States’ coronavirus case numbers are misconstrued as any person who tests positive will be counted as a positive test only once, no matter how many times they test positive. But a person who tests negative will be counted over and over again each time they test negative for the coronavirus.
“They’re adding their total test figures instead of their total people, which makes their percent positive extremely low,” she said.
The Infamous Raid
Ultimately Jones’ home was raided where police confiscated her computer and cell phone. Jones alleges police pointed guns towards herself, her husband and children. What’s more is she is also accusing an unidentified agent — for now only named as John Doe — of battery for inappropriate touching during the raid.
“They took my phone and the computer I use every day to post the case numbers in Florida, and school cases for the entire country. They took evidence of corruption at the state level. They claimed it was about a security breach. This was DeSantis. He sent the ‘ gestapo’.”
Today Jones’ lawsuit, filed in Leon County circuit court, alleges violations of Jones’ First Amendment and due-process rights and alleges an unlawful search and seizure.
It names as defendants Florida Department of Law Enforcement Commissioner Rick Swearingen, Agent Noel Pratts and, of course, the pervert unidentified agent listed as John Doe.
The lawsuit seeks compensatory and punitive damages and an injunction that would require Swearingen to return property seized in the search. .
