The human remains of Petito’s fiancé Brian Laundrie were found at a Memorial Reserve in Sarasota County, Florida.
FBI Tampa Division agent Michael McPherson, announced in a press conference earlier today, that pieces of the human body and other items are those of Brian Laundrie, the only suspect of killing Gabby Petito in mid-September while traveling on a trip visiting national parks in the western states.
“Earlier today, investigators found what appeared to be human remains, along with personal items, such as a backpack and notebook belonging to Brian Laundrie,” he said. “These items were found in an area that up until recently, have been underwater.”
In a press release later today, the FBI office in Denver, confirmed that a comparison of dental records matched those with Brian Laundrie’s DNA.

Despite the official statement from authorities, the family members of Brian Laundrie are still uncertain about what really happened with their loved one.
And now the family’s attorney Steve Bertolino has said that the autopsy results given by authorities tend to be “inconclusive.” The reason for that is because it is very difficult to identify human remains the way they found those of Brian.
Those remains are now being taken to anthropologists and experts who are going indeed investigate deeply to find the cause of Brain’s death, but the process could take weeks until they get close to 100 percent accurate results.
Nonetheless, the largest Britain’s newspaper The Sun is reporting that Laundrie could have killed himself near a creek where he knew he would then be eaten by an alligator.
The speculation comes after Brian Laundrie shared an eerie image on Pinterest of an alligator attacking a man.
