Human remains found in a Florida park on Wednesday were confirmed to belong to the missing boyfriend of a murdered blogger, the FBI says.
Brian Laundrie’s body, who has been missing for over a month, was identified using dental records.
Laundrie, who was a person interested in Gabby Petito’s death, returned to Florida last month from a joint trip without her partner.
His body was later found in Wyoming, where the couple had traveled.
“On October 21, 2021, a comparison of dental records confirmed that the human remains found at the T Mabry Carlton Jr Memorial Reserve and the Myakkahatchee Creed Environmental Park are those of Brian Laundrie,” the FBI said in a statement Thursday.
A lawyer representing Mr. Laundrie’s parents released a statement, saying, “Chris and Roberta Laundrie have been informed that the remains found yesterday on the reservation are indeed Brian’s.
“We have no further comments at this time and we ask that you respect the privacy of laundries at this time.”
On Wednesday, officials said the remains were discovered in a part of the park that was underwater until recently. Other items were also found during the search, including a backpack and notebook belonging to Brian.
