Just released autopsy results from the remains of Brian Laundrie have now officially determined that the main suspect in the death of Gabby Petito committed suicide while camping in the wilderness of Florida.
As Fox News reports:
Deceased fugitive Brian Laundrie died of suicide, a forensic anthropologist told Laundrie family attorney Steven Bertolino on Tuesday.
Laundrie took his own life with a gunshot wound to the head, Bertolino said.
“Chris and Robert are still mourning the loss of their son and are hopeful that these findings bring closure to both families,” he said.
Authorities recovered Laundrie’s partial skeletal remains, along with a backpack and other personal items belonging to Laundrie, on Oct. 20 at the Myakkahatchee Creek Environmental Park in North Port, Florida. The following day, after a comparison of dental records, the agency confirmed the remains as Laundrie’s.
Authorities in Florida also recovered Laundrie’s notebook which they described as possibly salvageable, a lead which may yet prove decisive in determining what exactly happened to Gabby Petito.
