lawyer says initial autopsy inconclusive – .

Brian Laundrie committed suicide with a gunshot wound to the head, a Laundrie family lawyer told CNN on Tuesday.

“Chris and Roberta Laundrie have been advised that the cause of death was a gunshot wound to the head and the type of death was suicide,” said attorney Steven Bertolino.

Laundrie’s remains were found in a Florida nature reserve last month after a weeks-long manhunt. He went missing just days after his fiancee Gabby Petito went missing.

The couple had traveled across the country in a converted van and documented their travels on social media. The case gained national attention as authorities searched for the two.

Laundrie returned to his parents’ home in Florida on September 1 without Petito. As police attempted to question the family about Petito’s whereabouts, Laundrie went missing on September 13 or 14 after leaving the house with a backpack, according to his parents.

Petito’s remains were found in Wyoming on September 19. His death was considered a homicide by manual strangulation.

Laundrie’s remains were found in an area of ​​the park that had been underwater in previous searches at the 25,000-acre nature reserve in North Port, Florida.

This is a developing story and will be updated.
