The cause of the death of Brian Laundrie has still to be determined, weeks after his bones were discovered at Myakkahatchee Creek Environmental Park.
Laundrie’s body was taken to a forensic anthropologist to examine, and his cause of death should be confirmed by the end of November.
The contents of Laundrie’s notebook have not yet been revealed, but a friend of Brian’s told The Sun in an exclusive interview that the notebook could hold clues to Gabby Petito’s death.
According to 7News, criminologist Casey Jordan said a notebook “pointed to the possibility” of a suicide note.
Law enforcement sources confirmed Wednesday, Oct. 20, that they found ‘human remains‘ near some belongings of fugitive Brian Laundrie wanted for the possible murder of his girlfriend, Gabby Petito, in Florida’s Myakkahatchee Creek Environmental Park.
Police officials confirmed to the news outlet that hunting dogs, trained to track dead bodies, found what appear to be human remains on the same day and within hours of Brian Laundrie’s parents attending the scene with police officers. In addition, the Laundries recognized some of their son’s belongings, his backpack, and notebook.
On Thursday, Oct. 21, the FBI confirmed the partial human remains belonged to fugitive Brian Laundrie, 23, who had been missing for more than a month.
The deceased Brian Laundrie, Petito’s boyfriend, remains as the only person of interest in her death.
Petito, 22, traveled cross-country with her fiancé, Laundrie, in a converted white Ford Transit to tour the country’s national parks. Petito dreamt of becoming a vlogger influencer.
However, on Sept. 1, Laundrie returned to his North Port home without his fiancé.
On Sept. 19, investigators searching the area in and around Wyoming’s Grand Teton National Park discovered Petito’s remains. A coroner later ruled that she’d been strangled to death by “human force” three to four weeks earlier.
