Brian Laundrie's family attorney Steven Bertolino pushed back speculation about the search for his remains.
Father Chris Laundrie led the authorities to the remains hours after joining the week-long search.
The idea that Chris Laundrie knew where the remains were "not too bright," Bertolino said.
Brian Laundrie's family lawyer vehemently denied widespread speculation about the circumstances in which the 23-year-old's remains were found, saying that "the public does not understand the simplicity".
Brian Laundrie's remains were found Wednesday in Florida's Carlton Reserve, completing a five-week search of the vast area.
He's been missing since he went hiking there in mid-September. His parents initially said he was missing on September 14, but later said he disappeared on September 13.
When the FBI found his remains, the FBI named Laundrie a person interested in the murder of his girlfriend Gabby Petito, who was found strangled near a campsite in Wyoming on September 19.
The couple had been on a road trip across the country together all summer, but Petito was declared missing 10 days after Laundrie returned to her Florida home alone from the trip on September 1.
The subsequent refusal by Brian and his parents Chris and Roberta to help authorities find Petito sparked widespread outrage and speculation about her death.
There is also speculation about how the five-week search for Laundrie Hours ended after Chris Laundrie joined the search at the Carlton Reserve.
Laundrie family attorney Steven Bertolino told Insider's Azmi Haroun and Natalie Musumeci that parents “advised” authorities where to look when they joined the search shortly after the park reopened.
Bertolino was visibly frustrated when he spoke to NewsNation's Marnie Hughes on Thursday night.
"It's not about knowing exactly where to go," he told Hughes, saying the logic is just "starting at the beginning" of the starting point.
The same area had already been searched by teams from the police, FBI and later a body tracking dog. The North Port Police had also used airboats, ATVS and Sarasota's mobile command unit, according to CBS subsidiary WINK News.
A YouTube video was posted by the North Port authorities of this search:
But in September the area where Laundrie's remains were found was under water, FBI special agent Michael McPherson said at a news conference Wednesday.
A September 24 tweet from North Port Public Information Officer Josh Taylor about the search illustrates the floods:
On Thursday, Bertolino said it was because of this that Chris Laundrie was able to find his son's white bag, which authorities led to his remains.
K-9 handler and former cop Kyle Heyen questioned this, telling NewsNation on Wednesday that it was "very suspicious" for a dog to miss it.
"If the corpse had been there when they went by with corpse dogs, and the corpse had been there for more than two or three minutes, the smell would have come through the water," Heyen said.
Bertolino was visibly frustrated when he pushed for the find on Thursday. "It just so happened that Brian was there," he said. "Well, my thought would be that anyone who questions this is not too smart."
"The public doesn't understand the simplicity," he also said.
Addressing rumors on social media that the laundries could have planted the remains, Bertolino said the find was witnessed by the FBI, police and the press.
“When do you think these items were planted? he said.
"And if I'm the only one who says it's rubbish because I don't want to say the word rubbish, I'll say it. It's rubbish."
