Brian Laundrie, the man wanted for questioning in the murder of his girlfriend Gabby Petito, has been confirmed dead. The Denver FBI confirmed on Twitter that remains found on Wedneday match his dental records. Petito’s disappearance during a camping trip with Laundrie caused a media firestorm in recent weeks, which escalated when her body was found in Wyoming’s Bridger–Teton National Forest on Sept. 19, and an autopsy concluded she died by homicide.

Laundrie and Petito embarked on a cross-country van trip in July 2021 that was set to last for four months. After multiple eyewitness reports of altercations between the couple, Laundrie flew from Wyoming to his family home in Florida on Sept. 1 without speaking of Petito’s whereabouts or cooperating with police. On Sept. 14, his parents claimed that he had gone hiking without a phone or a wallet, and hasn’t been spotted since. Though he has not been charged in the murder of Petito, the FBI has since issued a warrant for his arrest on charges of fraud via unauthorized use of a debit card.

Petito’s murder quickly became a top story on cable news channels, as well as TikTok, with amateur sleuths trading theories. The case also drew media criticism due to a lack of comparable coverage of missing women of color. Dog the Bounty Hunter also started a high-profile hunt for Laundrie.
