Remains of Brian Laundrie found in Florida Swamp

Remains found in a rural area of Florida swamp has been identified as Brian Laundrie, the person of interest in the stranging death of social media influencer Gabby Petito. 

Laundrie’s death means that he’ll never face justice in a court of law for the death of his fiance, Gabby Petito.

According to a report in The DailyMail Online the remains found at Myakkahatchee Creek Park were confirmed as Laundrie, the boyfriend of Petito and thought to have been the last person with the no deceased influence. 

The DailyMail cited FBI agents from Denver that confirmed Laundrie’s identity using dental records. The information released included that the remains were found in shrubs, and were found with a notebook and a backpack that belonged to Laundrie. 

Laundrie, 23, was the only suspect in Petito’s murder after the young woman disappeared in late August in Utah. Her body was later found in Wyoming, six days after Laundrie left their van trip to make a trip home to Florida. 

Laundrie later returned to the western United States and came home from his cross-country van trip, supposedly, without telling his family where Petito was. 

Lack of knowledge of her whereabouts was particularly curious considering that Petito is believed to have lived with Laundrie and his family in the months leading up to their van trip. 

However, Laundrie went on a camping trip with his parents shortly after returning to Florida, and before going on the lamb by himself. Laundrie’s family was harshly criticized for not speaking to police or the media since Petito’s story began to get national attention.

The Laundrie attorney Steven Bertolino told NBC News on Wednesday they are angry at the speculation that Chris and Roberta Laundrie may have planted evidence that it was Brian’s remains.
