Gabby Petito Case: Brian Laundrie Found Dead After Month-Long Manhunt

After a month-long search, Brian Laundrie has been found dead. 

The human remains discovered in Florida on Oct. 20 have been confirmed to belong to the 23-year-old fiancé of late influencer Gabby Petito, FBI Denver said on Twitter.

“A comparison of dental records confirmed that the human remains found at the T. Mabry Carlton, Jr. Memorial Reserve and Myakkahatchee Creek Environmental Park are those of Brian Laundrie,” the authorities wrote.

On Oct. 20, a notebook and backpack belonging to Laundrie were found near a trail he frequented in Myakkahatchee Creek Environmental Park in North Port, Fla., spurring a thorough investigation of that area, Laundrie family attorney Steve Bertolino said.

Law enforcement officials said at a press conference that partial human remains were discovered in Florida’s Carlton Reserve, at a location previously underwater. A spokesperson for the North Port Police told NBC News the remains were “skeletal.” 

On Sept. 1, before going missing, Laundrie returned home alone from a cross-country trip that he and Petito had taken. Petito’s parents reported her missing on Sept. 11, and just days later, Laundrie’s family said they had not seen him since Sept. 14, police said. He did not speak with police before his disappearance, and he was not a suspect in her death.
