PREVIOUS REPORT: Timeline: The murder of Gabby Petito and the death of Brian Laundrie
Petito was reported missing on September 11. Ten days later, her human remains were found during a field search in Grand Teton National Park and the Bridger-Teton National Forest.
The Teton County Coroner announced that her official cause of death was manual strangulation/suffocation and her manner of death was homicide, said Coroner Dr. Brent Blue. He believes Petito died about three to four weeks after her body was found.
On October 20, 2021, the remains of Brian Laundrie were found on the Carlton Reservation in North Port, Florida. Anthropologists determined that Laundrie died of a gunshot wound to the head, which is considered a suicide.
In January, the FBI found Laundry’s notebook, which revealed he had confessed to killing Petit before taking his own life.
