Brian Laundrie's parents are "tortured" by protesters outside their Florida home.
"They are being tortured by these protesters outside in their own homes," lawyer Steven Bertolino told Insider.
It goes on all the time. "They have no idea whether their son is alive or not," said Bertolino.
Brian Laundrie's parents are "tortured" by protesters who have been staying outside their Florida home for weeks since their son - the only person interested in Gabby Petito's disappearance and killing - disappeared, the family's lawyer said on Tuesday.
"They are being tortured by these protesters outside in their own homes," lawyer Steven Bertolino told insiders of Laundrie's parents Chris and Roberta Laundrie.
Protesters have been showing up regularly at the Laundrie family's home in North Port for weeks, mocking parents and leaving signs on their lawn, including photos of Petito, who was strangled by a coroner sometime in late August.
Most recently, a Florida woman filed a lawsuit against Chris Laundrie claiming he stole a $ 40 sign that was posted near his home on October 16.
The sign said, "What if it was Cassie?" regarding Cassie Laundrie, the daughter of Chris and Roberta Laundrie, according to court documents.
Chris and Roberta Laundrie "are being tracked for doing basic tasks like grocery shopping," Bertolino told Insider.
"They are being pestered with lawsuits about a $ 40 sign that was most likely on their property and should be considered trash," Bertolino said.
The lawyer added, "And all of this happens when you have no idea whether your son is alive or not."

The parents reported Brian Laundrie missing to the Florida police on September 17, more than two weeks after the 23-year-old returned from a country road trip that he had with Petito, his fiancée, without her and in the van they had been, had undertaken to enter.
Chris and Roberta Laundrie told investigators that their son went on a hike on September 13 on the nearby Carlton Reservation - where police were looking for him - and never returned home.
Petito's body was discovered in a remote Wyoming campsite on September 19, and the 22-year-old woman's death was later classified as murder.
Brian Laundrie, who remains the subject of an FBI-led manhunt, is being wanted by federal authorities on a bank card fraud charge for allegedly using Petito's debit card after her death.
He does not face any further charges.
Meanwhile, Bertolino told Insider Tuesday that Brian Laundrie's parents are "hopeful" that their son will be found.
