Severin Beckwith has the misfortune of resembling Brian Laundrie, who continues to elude the authorities searching for him in connection with the murder of Gabby Petito. Beckwith, meanwhile, is currently hiking the Appalachian Trail with his girlfriend, and while they were taking a break two miles off the trail at the Lodge at Fontana Village Resort in North Carolina, someone knocked on their door and then kicked it in before Beckwith, who had been napping, unlocked it. It was US Marshals, pointing guns at him, Beckwith tells the New Yorker. He says they handcuffed him, while he was still in his underwear, and fingerprinted him before ultimately realizing he wasn't Laundrie. See the New Yorker for the full story.
Meanwhile, the real Laundrie's father was on Monday summoned to court, the Independent reports. Protesters who suspect Laundrie's parents of helping him evade authorities have descended on the family home, and Laundrie's father is accused of trashing one of their signs that was left on his Florida lawn, the New York Post reports. Protester Andra Griffin filed the complaint, saying she helped pay for the sign, which asked "What if it was Cassie?" who had gone missing. That's a reference to Brian Laundrie's sister.
