As reported, Gabby's dad and mom are suing Christopher and Roberta, accusing Brian’s parents of knowing their son killed her and withholding the information during the critical time in the grueling search.

They also claimed that a statement delivered by the Laundrie family's attorney on Christopher and Roberta's behalf gave them false hope that Gabby was still alive.
