Michael Livingston, a landscaper who says he worked with Laundrie at a nursery between 2017 and 2018, spoke with Fox News Digital on Sunday and described what he remembers of the 23-year-old fugitive who has been missing for four weeks.

"He never came across as the kind of person that would be the killing type, but he did have that tendency to be — I don't wanna say the wrong thing and make him sound worse than he already is — he was kind of a guy who would get pissed off pretty quick," Livingston told the outlet.

"I remember from back then he was a big yoga nut, always telling me, 'I gotta worry about my zen.' And I thought he was this weirdo," Livingston added.

The former coworker also said that he remembers Laundrie having "the volatile personality of a chameleon."

Livingston spoke with Fox News Digital on Sunday during the first official fundraiser for The Gabby Petito Foundation in Patchogue, New York. He told the digital publication that he once met Gabby Petito when she visited Laundrie at the nursery where they were both working a few years ago.

He recalled Laundrie becoming defensive and jealous when he happened to notice Gabby being friendly and talking to other guys at the nursery.

"He would come over and do the boyfriend thing, put his arm around her, give her a kiss — very possessive," Livingston said.

And by the sane token, he remembers Laundrie having good charisma.

"He knew how to make people like him, he knew how to make people happy, and he knew how to make people buy the product that we had, honest," Livingston said regarding Laundrie's silver tongue. "He had the same kind of air you would be taught if you worked at a dealership."

When the outlet asked Livingston about his time meeting Gabby, he had nothing but positive things to say about her.

"Gabby, she was always a sweetheart, very peaceful. She was always really nice to me, and she was really outgoing," he said.

"Once I realized that the person who was missing was somebody I actually knew, it hit me like a tidal wave," he added. "I think the only reason why she settled for him is he wanted to travel."

This all comes in the middle of the fourth week of the manhunt for the missing fugitive. Although Laundrie hasn't been named a suspect in Gabby's homicide, he is wanted by the FBI for allegedly stealing and using her credit card after she disappeared in Grand Teton National Park. Her remains were found in that same park on Sept. 19, and just last week it was confirmed that her cause of death was due to manual strangulation.
