Brian Laundrie, who officials had claimed could be able to fill in some of the gaps concerning Gabby Petito’s final days, has been confirmed deceased.
Laundry’s body was discovered Wednesday in a Florida reserve that investigators had been searching for more than a month. The pair took a cross-country road vacation over the summer, and Laundrie returned home alone to their North Port, Florida, home on September 1, according to authorities. Petito’s parents reported her missing on September 11th. Laundrie left his home on September 13 without speaking to authorities during Petito’s disappearance and was never seen again, according to his parents.
Laundry’s remains were subjected to an autopsy. Petito’s remains were recovered in Wyoming on September 19. A coroner ruled she died by strangulation But little else is known at least to the public about what led up to her death.
