The human remains found yesterday in a Florida nature reserve are the boyfriend of Gabby Petito, a young influencer murdered a few weeks ago in the United States, federal police announced on Thursday.

“A comparison of dental prints confirmed that the human remains discovered “in the reserve” are from Brian Laundrie“, Indicated the FBI through its Twitter account. The young man disappeared after returning without Petito from a trip they had undertaken together through the country.

Authorities had found human remains in a Florida nature reserve where they were looking for the missing boyfriend of Gabby Petito, the FBI said.

Police also found a notebook and backpack belonging to Brian Laundrie, whom officers considered “a person of interest” in the investigation into the death of the young woman who documented her travels on Instagram.

Laundrie y Petito left New York in July to tour the western United States in a van for four months, after she quit her job.

For days, they shared images of them smiling on social networks, on a trip that seemed idyllic.

But September 1st, Laundrie returned alone to his home in North Port, Florida, where he lived with his family and Petito.

The case of the 22-year-old has been the subject of enormous media coverage in the country since the announcement of her disappearance.

His corpse appeared on September 19 in Wyoming’s Great Teton National Park. And on October 12 it was announced that she had been strangled to death.

Shortly after his return home, Laundrie, 23, disappeared after refusing to answer police questions.

A disturbing video

Petito’s family had reported her missing on September 11, assuring that they had not seen her since the end of August.

A video released in September by police in Moab, a small town in Utah, raised suspicions around Laundrie.
