The announcement made today comes after a number of case developments. On September 22, the FBI in Denver officially confirmed that the bones discovered in Wyoming’s Bridger-Teton National Forest were to Petito, a 22-year-old woman who vanished while traveling with her fiancé, Brian Laundrie, to national parks.
Anyone with information about Mr. Laundrie’s involvement in this case or his whereabouts today should get in touch with the FBI, according to Special Agent in Charge Michael Schneider.
Laundrie had been traveling with Petito when she vanished. Local and federal officials have sought him in a 25,000-acre Florida wildlife reserve. For Laundrie’s actions following Petito’s passing, a federal arrest warrant was issued, the FBI reported in late September.
Autopsy Showed Gabby Petito’s Body Was “Out in the Wilderness” for Weeks
The Wyoming County coroner ruled that Gabby Petito, a 22-year-old Long Island woman, was murdered by strangulation about three to four weeks prior to her body being found.
At the time of the event, she was allegedly camping nearby with her then-fiance, Brian Laundrie. Additional proof would show that Laundrie was the murderer.
Petito’s remains yielded DNA, according to Dr. Brent Blue of the Teton County coroner’s office. However, he remained silent on the matter, omitting to address whether the sample matched the victim’s DNA or identified the perpetrator.
He stated the body had been “out in the wilderness” for a few weeks, but he refrained from answering questions regarding whether or not it had been buried.
The autopsy, according to the coroner, was extensive and included a toxicological evaluation, tests performed by pathologists and forensic experts, and a whole-body CAT scan.
According to sources, Dr. Blue reported that she passed away somewhere around August 27, which corresponds with the period when officials assert that her phone stopped working.
Two days prior to her purported death, Gabby Petito had her last conversation with her mother. As to a report dated October 13, 2021, he stated,
“We were very exact in our examination and the detail by which the examination was done. We were waiting for various specialists to come in and help with the investigation, waiting on toxicology to be returned, and it was just a matter of making sure we had everything right.”
Petito Family Reaction
In a recent interview, when they discussed the day they learned of their daughter’s passing, Gabby’s parents stated that they continue to hold onto the hope that Brian is still alive.
Brian “didn’t tell us” that he went back to his house in North Port with her van and without Gabby, according to her father, Joe. Joe added that the parents started messaging and calling Brian’s parents anxiously, even initially believing that Brian was also missing.

“One of the texts, I mean, I was going to call the police. You know, ‘Just letting you know because we have no idea, no responses,’” Joe Petito said. “A normal parent, when you text someone that they’re going to call the cops because you can’t find your child, they would reply.” Joe Petito said, “I do,” when asked if they believed “100%” that Brian Laundrie was hiding.
“Because he’s a coward. Flat out. I could use some other words, but I can’t use them on your show. Coward,” he said. Coward, he uttered. “Anyone who resided in the house is a coward and unable to defend their behavior.
The bones of Petito were still being kept in Wyoming as of Friday. Blue claimed that the family was planning her return to Long Island. “Bringing her home is the family’s top priority,” her parents’ lawyer Richard Stafford told Fox News.
