Gabby Petito update – Brian Laundrie confirmed dead as body parts found are identified as YouTuber’s fugitive fiance

BRIAN Laundrie was confirmed dead on Thursday as the human remains found at a Florida reserve on Wednesday were identified as YouTuber Gabby Petito’s fugitive fiance.

The FBI revealed on the evening of October 21, 2021, that “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.”

Following the news of Brian Laundrie’s remains, the attorney for Gabby Petitio’s family said: “Gabby’s family is not doing interviews or making a statement at this time. They are grieving the loss of their beautiful daughter.

“Gabby’s family will make a statement at the appropriate time and when they are emotionally ready.”

The findings come after Brian Laundrie was named a “person of interest” in Gabby Petito’s murder for the first time after finding a notebook near where his remains were found.

Tampa special agent Michael McPherson told reporters: “The FBI and the North Port Police Department, and our law enforcement partners have been searching the area of the Carlton Reserve for Brian Laundrie, a person of interest in the murder of Gabby Petito.”

This is thought to be the first time that FBI agents have used the word “murder” in this case.

Gabby’s body was found in Grand Teton National park on September 19, eight days after her family reported her missing.
