Forensic expert Brent Blue had previously announced that Petito was strangled to death and her lifeless body was found 3-4 weeks after her death. Gabby Petito went on a RV trip in July with her 23-year-old fiancé, Brian Laundrie, and disappeared mysteriously after that trip.
Laundrie returned to his home Florida on September 1st, but had not contacted his fiancee’s family or the police. After Petito’s family reported that their daughter is missing on September 11th, a wide-ranging search was launched across the United States. Laundrie, who was identified as the suspect in the lawsuit, refused to cooperate with the police and disappeared after a while.
Brian Laundrie and Gabby Petito was formerly reported to the police on the account of violence in August, and they had a traffic stop by the Utah police. During this investigation, Petito told the police that she had an argument with her fiancee and that she had psychological problems by crying. Petito also stated that she slapped her fiancee after the argument, but she did not want to harm him.
Brian Laundrie was held as the prime suspect of Petito’s murder
Laundrie was identified as the prime suspect in Petito’s death. An investigation by the FBI special agent found human remains, along with personal belongings of Laundrie, in a park. Forensic examination will reveal who the remains belong to. The search continues for Brian Laundrie, the fiancee of 22-year-old Gabrielle Petito, who has been missing since September 13th.
FBI Special Agent Michael McPherson announced that a search of a park in Florida’s Carlton Reserve area by police found human remains thought to be Laundrie’s. McPherson stated that there were personal items such as a backpack and notebook belonging to Laundrie next to human remains. The agent stated that the items were found in an area that was submerged until recently.
Officials noted that it has not yet been determined who the remains belong to, and that the search continues in the area. Confirming that Laundrie’s parents, Chris and Roberta Laundrie, had visited the park earlier in the day, officials said the couple would await forensics to determine who the human remains belonged to.
