Where were Brian Laundrie's remains found?

BRIAN Laundrie was named a person of interest in the case of Gabby Petito's disappearance.

Brian, 23, was wanted by the FBI for fraudulent bank activity after he allegedly used Gabby's bank cards after her death.

Where was Brian Laundrie found?

On Tuesday, November 23, 2021, the cause of death for Brian Laundrie was officially released.

According to Steve Bertolino, the Laundrie family lawyer, Brian died of a gunshot wound to the head.

“Chris and Roberta Laundrie have been informed that the cause of death was a gunshot wound to the head and the manner of death was suicide," he said.

"Chris and Roberta are still mourning the loss of their son and are hopeful that these findings bring closure to both families."

The official manner of death is listed as suicide, according to the lawyer.

Brian Laundrie's remains were officially identified on October 21, 2021, after an extensive search at Myakkahatchee Creek Environmental Park.

The FBI released a statement after it was confirmed on October 21 that the human remains found in the search for Brian were bones.

The statement read: "On October 21, 2021, a comparison of dental records confirmed that the human remains found at the T. Mabry Carlton Jr. Memorial Reserve and the Myakkahatchee Creek Environmental Park are those of Brian Laundrie."

Bertolino confirmed that Brian's parents were informed of the finding, saying: "Chris and Roberta Laundrie have been informed that the remains found yesterday in the reserve are indeed Brian’s.

"We have no further comment at this time and we ask that you respect the Laundrie’s privacy at this time."

The search for Brian was on its fifth week as authorities tracked down leads and attempt to find him.

Prior to being located, former US Marshal, Lenny DePaul, believed that Brian was "sleeping with one eye open" because "innocent people don’t run."

Authorities had investigated the Appalachian Trail while many still believed that he built a doomsday bunker and was hiding out under his parents' flower bed.

On October 17, 2021, Severin Beckwith claims US Marshals ambushed him on the Appalachian Trail. He believed it happened due to his resemblance to Brian.

However, on October 19, Brian's personal items were discovered near a trail in Myakkahatchee Creek Park, his lawyer confirmed.

His parents came to the scene to help with the search, while the Sarasota County Medical Examiners Office was also summoned to the park, they told The Sun.

Earlier in the week, Brian's friend claimed he has the resources to get out of US illegally and told The Sun exclusively that he could be headed to a number of different countries.

"I think he'd be able to put the resources together to get out of the country, either illegally or under some sort of a fake identification,” the friend told The Sun.

“He's the type of person that would be able to drop everything to secure his means of not being captured and to evade arrest or evade prosecution from what seems to be a pending crime."

He later added that Laundrie could be headed to New Zealand or even South Africa.

On October 21, it was confirmed that the human remains found in the search for Brian Laundrie were bones.

Local media has claimed that "skeletal remains" were found near a backpack and notebook belonging to Brian in the Myakkahatchee Creek Environmental Park.

What did Gabby's friend say about Brian?

In a TikTok video, Gabby's friend, Rose Davis, claims that she is scared Brian may "try to hurt" her while he was still on the run.

In the video, Davis said: "I don't have a fear that he'll come after me … but I do fear that if he's about to get caught … then maybe there's a possibility he'd try to hurt me."

She later added: "I just don't think he's that stupid."

Davis also went on to clear up some confusion about the condo that Gabby and Laundrie were living in before they embarked on their cross-country road trip but tried not to talk about him that much because she said if this goes to trial, "we need all our ducks in a line."

Did Dog the Bounty Hunter join the search for Brian Laundrie?

The search for Brian has grabbed national attention following Gabby's death and even celebrity bounty hunter Duane Chapman, who famously goes by Dog the Bounty Hunter, has joined in the case in hopes to find him by his 24th birthday in November.

Chapman's daughter was also on the case.

Despite being injured, Chapman is still on the case and revealed earlier this week that he plans on bringing him home alive.

"Turn yourself in, Brian. For once in your life, be a man," Chapman told The Sun.

The 68-year-old later claimed that Laundrie was "built to be a killer" because of the books that he read and the artwork he shared.

What was Gabby's cause of death?

On September 21, 2021, the Teton County Coroner Dr Brent Blue said Gabby died as a result of a homicide.

Almost a month later, on Tuesday, October 12, strangulation was revealed to be the cause of death. Teton County Coroner Dr Brent Blue added that Gabby's predicted death was three to four weeks before her body was found.

Dr Blue also confirmed that Gabby was not pregnant but wasn't able to go into much detail because of state laws.
