The FBI has confirmed what most people connected to the Gabby Petito murder investigation already suspected: The human remains discovered in Florida on Wednesday are, in fact, Brian Laundrie’s.

The remains — which investigators describe as “skeletal” — were found alongside a notebook and backpack belonging to Laundrie, who’d been on the run since September 14th. Agents at the FBI’s Denver office say a positive ID was made by comparing dental records.

Laundrie and Petito, who were engaged, were on a cross-country trip when Petito’s parents reported her missing on September 11th, nearly two weeks after Laundrie returned home without her.

After Petito’s body was found on September 19th, a medical examiner determined she’d be strangled to death three or four weeks earlier. Authorities then named Laudrie “a person of interest” in the case.

Laundrie was last seen on September 13, after refusing to speak to the police when returning to his parent’s Florida home.

According to CNN, FBI Special Agent Micheal McPherson mentioned that during the search for Laundrie they did discover a  backpack and notebook in Carlton Reserve. Although the notebook was found outside of the bag, it could be deemed as salvageable in this continued invetigation.

When the question of a weapon being located, North Port Police spokesperson Josh Taylor said, ” no comment”.

Was Laundrie missing long enough for his remains to be “skeletal?” Can you come up with a possible explanation for that?
