Brian Laundrie’s autopsy is INCONCLUSIVE: Remains found in Florida reserve sent to an anthropologist

BREAKING NEWS: Brian Laundrie’s autopsy is INCONCLUSIVE: Skeletal remains found in Florida reserve will be sent to an anthropologist to try and determine a cause of death for Gabby Petito’s fiancé

  • Brian Laundrie’s remains were found on Wednesday at a Florida nature reserve
  • On Thursday the FBI used dental records to confirm that it was the missing man
  • On Friday authorities said that the autopsy was inconclusive and further tests needed to determine how he died 


Brian Laundrie‘s autopsy is inconclusive, Florida authorities have said, and the remains are now being sent to an anthropologist to try and determine how he died. 

‘No manner or cause of death was determined, and the remains were sent to an anthropologist for further evaluation,’ said Steve Bertolino, the Laundrie family lawyer, speaking to The New York Post

Laundrie’s remains were found on Wednesday in the T Mabry Carlton Jr Memorial Reserve.

The 23-year-old was last seen on September 13, his parents said, when he left to go for a hike.

Laundrie was the sole ‘person of interest’ in the murder of his fiancee, Gabby Petito, who was found dead in Wyoming.

The pair had been on a road trip and documenting their travels on social media. 

Laundrie vanished on September 13, six days before the body of his fiancee Gabby Petito was found in Wyoming. She had been missing since August 26 

An extensive manhunt was staged for four weeks, with a particular focus on the Carlton Reserve because Laundrie’s Ford Mustang was parked at the park, and he was known to go hiking there.

But the search was incredibly difficult due to the swampy conditions, with the park full of alligators and snakes, and much of it underwater. 

Laundrie’s remains – said to include part of a skull – were found in an area of the swamp which until recently were under several feet of water.

It had been expected that pinpointing his cause of death would be complicated, because the body had reportedly lain in the water for some time.
