Brian Laundrie autopsy reports are finally out. As per the reports, Laundrie took his own life using a gun.
According to a forensic anthropologist, Brian Laundrie committed suicide, he disclosed the details to Laundrie’s attorney on Tuesday. As Laundrie’s parents, Chris and Robert are still grieving the loss of their beloved son and they hope that the proceedings will help in closing the gap between both families.
The Florida District 12 Medical Examiner said on Thursday that the agency finished their investigation through a scene response & a thorough examination of skeletal remains. The examination of dental records by a forensic odontologist, the comparison of the remains by a forensic anthropologist, and the analysis of the DNA were also conducted.
How was Laundrie?
In September 2011, Laundrie was listed as a person of interest in connection with the disappearance and homicide of his former fiancée, Gabby Petito. That tragedy captivated the nation for more than a month after Petito’s family reported her missing.
Later on, at the Myakkahatchee Creek Environmental Park in North Port, Florida, authorities recovered Laundrie’s partial skeletal remains, his backpack, and other personal items. After comparing dental records, the agency identified the remains as Laundrie’s the following day.
After the conduction of an initial autopsy by the medical examiner’s office in late October, but the results were inconclusive. A forensic anthropologist then examined the remains.
Forensic anthropologists analyze human remains, do DNA tests, and look for any weapons to help determine how someone died.
But the remains weren’t the only thing they were able to discover. Police say they also find Laundrie’s notebook, which may be salvageable, on Oct. 20. However, it is still unclear what is inside.
On Sept. 1, Laundrie returned to his parents’ house without her (Gabby Petito). Ten days later, Petito’s family reported her missing. On Sept. 17, a report by Laundrie’s parents reported him missing but later clarified that the last time they saw him was Sept. 13.
After searching the Myakkahatchee Creek park for more than a month, the North Port Police Department and the FBI were finally able to discover Brian’s remains and personal items with help from Laundrie’s parents in an area that was underwater.
According to Petito-Schmidt family attorney Richard Stafford, “The family is aware of the circumstances surrounding the suicide of Gabby’s sole suspect” and “will not be making any further statements at this time at the request of the United States Attorney’s Office and the Teton County Prosecutor’s Office.”
“The family has to stay silent and allow the FBI to continue their investigation. We will make a statement when the United States Attorney’s Office decides whether to charge any additional individuals.”
Following the above-mentioned scenario, parents have been quite concerned regarding the safety of their children.
