Steven Bertolino, a lawyer for Laundrie’s family, revealed in an interview with CNN that the probability that the body found in the Florida nature reserve corresponds to his client is very high, since he was lying next to a backpack and a notebook that belonged to the young man.
“It is very likely that it is Brian’s remains, but we are going to wait for the forensic results to arrive to verify it,” he said.
The lawyer explained to journalist Chris Cuomo that Brian’s parents are heartbrokenWell, although it has not been confirmed that it is him, they are very sad because their son’s belongings were there, along with the remains. “That has to be heartbreaking,” added Bertolino.
The communicator questioned him about what will happen if it is confirmed that it was Laundrie, “Will her parents say what they know (about Gabby’s death)?”, He asked. However, the family lawyer declined to answer and said that it was not time, as he himself recommended not to do so.
Account of the Gabby Petito case
It is worth remembering that search for Brian Laundrie, fiancee of Gabby Petito, began in mid-September, just days after the young woman’s family reported her disappearance and accused that earlier that month her son-in-law had returned alone from the trip he undertook with his daughter and that he did not want to talk about the topic.
Gabby and Brian undertook a trip through several natural areas aboard a white van, the journey was documented on YouTube and Instagram, and although on the screen everything seemed happiness, then videos from various sources came to light that showed that they had a relationship violent and toxic.
Although the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI, for its acronym in English) does not consider Brian Laundrie a suspect in the disappearance and murder of the 22-year-old, it does have him in the category of ‘person of interest’ in the case, in addition that on it weighs a arrest warrant for using bank cards that weren’t hers before Gabby’s death.
Brian disappeared right in the middle of September, and on the 19th it was revealed that a body that could be Petito’s had been found in a Wyoming nature reserve; The next day it was confirmed that it was the influencer and youtuber.
At the beginning of October, the result of the autopsy was released: Gabby died of strangulation about three or four weeks before his remains were found.
