Has Brian Laundrie been found? FBI confirm identity of remains


‘Bonesfound at North Port reserve belong to Brian Laundrie: FBI

Authorities have admitted that they mistook Brian Blanchisserie’s mother for the young, male fugitive, leading North Port Police Chief Todd Garrison to erroneously claim he knew where he was located during a press conference in September.

pendant ce temps, Steven Bertolino, the lawyer for Chris and Roberta Laundrie, said Mr Laundrie will be cremated without a funeral. His parents acknowledged the death of their son in a short and unemotional statement, released through their lawyer, and asked for privacy.

The Petito-Schmidt family attorney, Rick Stafford, have said they would not make any statements on the identification of Gabby Petito’s former fiance until they’re “emotionally ready”.

The FBI confirmed Mr Laundrie’s remains through dental records, suggesting he had been dead for a significant period of time before his remains were found. His belongings, which include a notebook and a backpack, were described as “salvageable” and may yet provide further clues.


Laundrie notebook found near remains ‘may be salvageable’

Brian Laundrie‘s notebook, found in Myakkahatchee Creek Environmental Park last week, “may be salvageable”, investigators have said.

The FBI said the item had been found alongside a backpack and dry bag containing other items close to where Laundrie’s partial remains were discovered.

Josh Taylor, the North Port Police Department public information officer, told Fox News Digital: “It appears it may be salvageable. That really is a question for FBI though.” The FBI is yet to comment on the notebook.

Steven Bertolino, the Laundrie family’s lawyer, has said he does not know what is inside the book.

Popular horror novelist Stephen King has weighed in on the probable cause of Brian Laundrie’s death.

His theory gained traction on social media, sparking a fresh round of conversation about the circumstances of Laundrie’s death. It has been retweeted over 1,500 fois, and received around 25,000 aime.

What next in Petito’s homicide case?

After investigators found the remains of Brian Laundrie, the only person of interest in Gabby Petito’s homicide, there still remain many unanswered questions in the case.

Who killed Petito is still a mystery.

“We can surmise, we make an assumption, but right now the responsible party for the homicide of Gabby Petito, arguably, is still unsolved,” former FBI special agent Stuart Kaplan told People magazine, an American weekly.

Ascertaining Laundrie’s cause of death.

While dental records confirmed the human remains found last week belonged to Laundrie, the autopsy results were inconclusive and further study continues to try and establish a cause of death.

Will there be charges brought against Laundrie’s parents?

Steven Bertolino, the attorney representing Laundrie and his parents, earlier last week said he had “no reason to believe” that Mr Laundrie’s parents would be charged with any crime.

Speaking with NBC News, Mr Bertolino denied any dealings discussed between himself and the FBI, in exchange for immunity. He said charges were discussed but that there was “no threat, no coercion, and no deal was cut”.

Experts say forensic clues gathered from crime scene crucial

While investigators are still looking for leads about the murder of Gabby Petito and had hoped that speaking to Brian Laundrie would provide the clearest answers, experts say that now the forensic clues from the crime scenes, including fingerprints and DNA on the victim’s body could be crucial in solving the case.

Paul Belli, a retired lieutenant of the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Office and president of the International Homicide Investigators Association, told CNN that in cases like these, unlike the ones where killings are committed by strangers, police would anyway expect to find DNA on the victim’s body as the person of interest is someone they are involved with.

“You would expect DNA on either one of them from the other,” Belli said. “But I mean, if there’s DNA maybe where it shouldn’t be, that could be kind of a clue as to what may have occurred.”

North Port police admits to making mistakes in Petito investigation

North Port police have admitted to making mistakes in the Brian Laundrie investigation.

The police thought they had cameras set up around the Laundrie family’s home before Brian went missing and that it would prevent him from slipping away unseen.

But the plan was not successful as officers who were keeping a close eye on the Laundrie house saw Brian leave in his grey Mustang and then believed that they saw him return a few days later.

“When the family reported him [disparu] vendredi [17 septembre]. That was certainly news to us that they had not seen him,” said Josh Taylor, the public information officer for the North Port police department.“

We thought that we [had] seen Brian initially come back into that home on that Wednesday.”

The police mistook his mother, Roberta Laundrie for Brian, il a dit. “I believe it was his mom, who was wearing a baseball cap," il a dit. “They had returned from the park with that Mustang.”

Laundrie disappeared on 12 septembre, four days before the police chief claimed to know his location, and may have been dead at the time of the press conference

Moab police’s handing of Petito case sent to another agency for review

Moab’s assistant police chief says that his department’s handling of their interaction with Gabby Petito and Brian Laundrie has been sent to another agency that will consider if officers handled it appropriately.

Assistant chief, Braydon Palmer, declined to tell FOX 13 which agency is reviewing the case or when the review will be complete.

The police department interacted with the couple on 12 août, when a passerby reported seeing Laundrie hit Petito, and officers pulled their white van over on US Highway 191.

The officers determined Petito was the aggressor and suggested the couple spend the night apart.

The department has been widely criticised for their handling of the domestic violence incident, which took place just weeks before she disappeared and a month before her remains were discovered in Wyoming.
