Brian Laundrie shot himself in the head, confirms family lawyer
Gabby Petito’s fiancé, Brian Laundrie, shot himself in the head, showing autopsy results.
Laundrie had been the subject of a manhunt for more than a month as investigators searched for clues in Ms Petito’s death during their van ride across the country.
Laundri family lawyer Steven Bertolino said his parents had been informed that the cause of death was a gunshot wound to the head and the manner of death was suicide.
Laundrie’s remains were discovered by his parents and the FBI in Myakkahatachee Creek Environmental Park on October 20th.
The remains, which included part of a human skull, were found along with a backpack and notebook in an area of the park that was previously submerged in water.
Authorities have also tried to repair a personal notebook retrieved from a dry bag near his body as part of their investigation into the death of his girlfriend Gabby Petito.
Crucial to their investigation will be Laundry’s digital communications, including his texts and emails, use of social media and internet browser history before his death.
However, the Bounty Hunter is questioning the latest news about Brian Laundrie
The bounty hunter Dog, however, has questioned the latest details released about Brian Launrie’s autopsy results, suggesting he believes the refugee could still be alive.
Just hours after the news came on Tuesday that Laundrie had died of suicide, Duane ‘Dog’ Chapman appeared on Fox News to give his bid on the case.
During his interview with the channel, Mr Chapman spoke about the refugee, as if there was still some doubt that the human remains found last month in Florida did not belong to him.
“If he’s alive, he’s going to be arrested,” Mr Chapman said before adding, “Right now it looks like he committed suicide.”
“It’s a tragedy for both families,” he said.

Outrage that FBI ‘hides’ that Brian Laundrie was ‘armed’
The FBI is being criticized for “hiding” the fact that he was “armed and dangerous” after it was revealed that Brian Laundrie had shot himself in the head.
Steven Bertolino, the lawyer representing Launrie’s parents, had previously said that one of the laundry’s weapons could not be found at the time their son disappeared.
He was quoted as saying Daily mail: “We did not want the public to go crazy with it. I do not think they considered him dangerous to anyone he met on the street. ”
The family had tried to keep it a secret.
Investigators are still searching for the gun.
Now people are furious at the FBI for hiding that Laundrie was “armed” and “dangerous.”
On social media, several observers asked “Why do we have an FBI at all?” and others said, “What is the FBI hiding?”
A user following the Tessarossa handle on Twitter said, “Wow. I saw the update on the news, and this obviously obvious question did not even occur to me. None of this makes sense. What is the FBI hiding?”
There was outrage over the fact that the FBI was trying to hide the “important information.” A social media user commented that law enforcement and the FBI have a lot to answer for in the Gabby Petito and Brian Laundri case “knowing he had a firearm when he disappeared and did not notify the public of an armed and dangerous person.”
