Brian Laundrie ( social media influencer ) boyfriend died from a gunshot wound to the head and his manner of death was suicide, his family’s attorney said on Tuesday 23rd Nov. His body was found on Oct. 21 at the Carlton Reserve in North Port, Florida. The Sarasota County medical examiner did not conclude a manner or cause of death at that time, Laundrie’s remains were brought to a forensic anthropologist for analysis. Gabby Petito last saw him at Grand Teton National Park in late August. Petito’s family was aware of the circumstances surrounding Laundrie’s death but won’t be commenting on new details at the request of the United States Attorney’s Office and the Teton County Prosecutor’s Office.
The family was asked not to make any comments and let the FBI continue their investigation. The family was asked to wait for the United States Attorney to make a determination on whether any additional individuals will be charged. When that determination is made, we will have a statement. Laundrie disappeared on Sept. 14, three days after Petito was reported missing by her family. He named a person of interest in her disappearance the next day. Petito’s remains were found on Sept. 19 in Bridger-Teton National Forest in Wyoming, nearly a month after she was last seen in public.
She and Laundrie had set off on a cross-country trip to visit national parks in June and documented the trip on social media platforms such as Instagram and YouTube. Federal and state investigators believe Petito disappeared between Aug. 27 and Aug. 30. Laundrie returned to Florida, to the home the couple shared with his parents, on Sept. 1 with Petito’s van, which she had converted for the journey. Petito’s family founded the Gabby Petito Foundation to address the needs of organizations that support locating missing persons and to provide aid to organizations that assist victims of domestic violence situations.
