Laundrie is wanted for questioning in the death of YouTube star Gabby Petito. Her body was discovered on Sept. 19 at a campsite near Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming. The 22-year-old’s family had reported her missing eight days prior — after a months long cross-country road trip.
From The New York Post:
Partial human remains were reportedly located in a Florida nature park where authorities have searched for Brian Laundrie, and a medical examiner has responded to the area, in the search for the fugitive wanted in the Gabby Petito case.
The discovery of remains comes after some items belonging to Laundrie were found in the Myakkahatchee Creek Environmental Park.
Law enforcement sources told NBC News that the remains were found in a section of the Myakkahatchee Creek Environmental Park that had previously been underwater due to heavy rains.
A cadaver dog also has been deployed to the scene, CNN reported. A tent was set up in the area, according to chopper video posted by a reporter for News Nation Now.NY Post
FBI spokesman: The backpack and notebook "were found in an area that up until recently, had been underwater…I know you have a lot of questions, but we don't have all the answers yet."https://t.co/ibzNBSAYBH pic.twitter.com/hPhnW06QGn— Breaking911 (@Breaking911) October 20, 2021
