Brian Laundrie Confirmed Dead
Brian Laundrie’s family has been notified that the bones found in Florida swamp next to a notebook belonging to Laundrie are his.
The FBI confirmed to reporters in Florida Wednesday that investigators found what appear to be human remains, “along with personal items, such as a backpack and notebook belonging to Brian Laundrie,” just hours after Laundrie’s parents searched the Myakkahatchee Creek Environmental Park. Those remains are now confirmed to belong to the fugitive.
The remains found near the Carlton reserve belong to Brian Laundrie, a missing 23-year-old wanted in connection with the murder of his fiancée, Gabby Petito.
Law enforcement had been searching for Laundrie since his parents, Chris and Roberta, reported him missing on September 17. His disappearance came days before Gabby’s remains were found in Wyoming, where the couple had been visiting during a months-long trip cross country that they documented on social media.
A large-scale manhunt for Laundrie yielded minimal results until Wednesday when his parents joined the search. During a search of the Myakkahatchee Creek Environmental Park, the couple, along with law enforcement, found a backpack and notepad belonging to Laundrie. Human remains were later found near Laundrie’s belongings and on Thursday, officials confirmed the remains were linked to the 23-year-old.
The FBI in Denver confirmed in a release that dental records matched those of Brian, adding that they were “grateful” for the work of every agency involved with the search.
The Carlton Reserve and nearby area became a central focus point in the search for Brian, as it’s the last place he was believed to have gone. His parents told police he embarked on a camping trip at the reserve days before they reported him missing.
Despite repeated searches of the area, nothing was found until Brian’s parents headed to the area, sparking increased suspicion of their potential involvement. However, officials noted that the area had been underwater until recently, accounting for why nothing was found earlier in the search.
