(CSU) Brian Laundrie died from a gunshot wound to the head. He killed himself. This was told to us by an attorney for Brian’s family. The attorneys for the Laundries have been told that the person who died had a gunshot wound to their head and that the death was suicide.
CSU has contacted the authorities for more information about the gun. They have also contacted Bertolino to find out how he got the gun.
Last month Laundrie’s remains were found in a Florida nature reserve after a manhunt that lasted for weeks. He disappeared just days before his fiancée Gabby Petito was reported missing.
The couple had been traveling around the country in a big van. They shared their trip on social media. Authorities were looking for them because they got a lot of attention from people online.
Laundrie went back to his parent’s house in Florida on September 1. He left without Petito on September 13 or 14, according to his parents. Police were trying to ask the family about Petito’s whereabouts when Laundrie disappeared after leaving home with a backpack, according to his parents.
Petito’s body was found in Wyoming on September 19. Her death was ruled a homicide because somebody choked her to death.
Petito’s family is aware of the situation with Laundrie. The officials are not making a comment because the US Attorney and the Teton County Prosecutor asked them not to.
The family was not allowed to say anything while the investigation into her death was ongoing. The statement said, “Don’t make any comments.” A Florida medical examiner confirmed Tuesday that Laundrie died of suicide by shooting himself in the head.
The office won’t release the autopsy report until the police investigation is finished.
We don’t know what led to her death. Agents said that he was a “person of interest” in the case, but they didn’t charge him. Someone said he used her account after she died. (He denies it.)
Laundrie’s remains were found in Carlton Reserve. He died when this area was underwater. Laundrie’s father found a notebook near where his son was. Experts said that the notebook could give us answers.
The notebook was wet when it was found. Officials have not yet said whether they have been able to find any information from it. Bertolini said that Laundrie’s parents talked about the possibility that he killed himself several times in October.
