Brian Laundrie died by suicide, family attorney says

NORTHERN PORT

Brian Laundrie died by suicide, according to the attorney representing his family.

Laundrie, 23, is one who cares about the death of his 22-year-old fiancée Gabby Petito.

Laundrie’s attorney Steven Bertolino said: “Chris and Roberta Laundrie have been informed that the cause of death was a gunshot wound to the head and that the mode of death was suicide.

Laundrie returned home September 1 after taking a cross-country road trip with Petito in a converted camper van. He returned to his parents’ home in North Port without Petito.

Petito was reported missing on September 11 after her family failed to contact her.

Her remains were found in Grand Teton National Park on September 19.

Laundrie was last seen September 13 after his parents said he went hiking in the 24,000-acre Carlton Preserve in Sarasota, Florida.

Laundrie’s remains were found on October 20 in a nature park in North Port, where authorities spent most of their time searching for him.

Bertolino said: “Chris and Roberta are still mourning the loss of their son and hope that these findings will bring the family to an end.
