The FBI has confirmed through dental records that the human remains found in Florida are that of Brian Laundrie, the man who was a person of interest, in the case of Gabby Petito.
Petito who was 22, died three to four weeks before her body was found Sept. 19 near an undeveloped camping area along the border of Grand Teton National Park.
A coroner ruled she was strangled to death.
Laundrie and Petito were traveling cross country, however Laundrie returned to Florida in early September without his fiancée.
She was reported missing Sept. 11 by her parents after she did not respond to calls and texts for several days while the couple visited parks in the West.
Federal officials in Wyoming last month charged Laundrie with unauthorized use of a debit card, alleging he used a Capital One Bank card and someone’s personal identification number to make unauthorized withdrawals or charges worth more than $1,000 during the period in which Petito went missing.
They did not say to whom the card belonged.
Laundrie’s cause of death has not yet been determined.
