Human remains have been found nearby to a notebook and backpack that is believed to belong to Brian Laundrie.
This shocking discovery comes in the middle of the intensive search for Laundrie as authorities attempt to uncover what happened to 22-year-old Gabby Petito who was found dead by strangulation after travelling with Brian this summer.
He was named a “person of interest” in the case but remained missing.
The FBI have now confirmed that partial human remains have been found in Myakkahatchee Creek Environmental Park.
Brian‘s family lawyer, Steven Bertolino, told CNN that “the probability is strong that it is Brian’s remains, but we’re going to wait for the forensic results to come in and verify that.”
Steven also shared that the Laundrie family are “heartbroken” at the discoveries.
“It’s quite sad, you can imagine as a parent, finding your son’s belonging alongside from the remains. That’s got to be heartbreaking. And I can tell you that they are heartbroken.”
A medical examiner reported that it may take some time for the identity of the body to be confirmed.
