Laundrie’s remains were discovered last month at a nature reserve in Florida.
He disappears during a nationwide manhunt for his fiancé, Gabby Petito.
Petito’s body was later found in Wyoming, and the coroner ruled her death a homicide by strangulation.
Laundrie is described as someone interested in the case.
