Social media lit up after a limb was discovered floating near McKay Bay on Thursday. A hiker was reportedly the lucky one who came across the detached body part.

A dive team is continuing to search the waters for more remains.

WFLA Now anchor JB Biunno revealed the bizarre discovery. "We don’t know if this is a partial leg or a fully-intact leg,” he said. “We just know it is a human leg."

Law enforcement told The Sun, they have yet to make an identification. "It has not been determined whether the leg belonged to a male or female. Additional information will be released when it becomes available," police reportedly stated.

As Biunno pointed out, the limb was "nowhere near" Fort De Soto, the campground Brian visited with his family when Gabby Petito was missing. Last month, a gun was found in the water of an area where the Laundrie's frequented.

While there is no evidence the leg belongs to Brian, sleuths are running wild with conspiracy theories.

"I commented that maybe a gator dragged a bag of dirty Laundrie out the Carlton reserve, then accidentally dropped a leg off at McKay bay," one person wrote online. "Oh my, wonder if it's Brian's," added another. "Brian, is that you?" shared a third.

As Radar reported, skeletal remains — including a skull — were found at the Carlton Reserve last month. After a five-week manhunt, it all came to a halt when the coroner revealed the remains belonged to Brian. He was only identified because of dental records.

Due to able to the level of decomposition, officials have been unable to determine a cause of death. Brian's remains are undergoing "further evaluation" with an anthropologist.

A former cop believes Brian was most likely torn apart by alligators, crabs, and other swap-like creatures.

According to retired NYPD commander Tom Joyce, Brian's remains "a lot of post mortem predation."

"If the remains are skeletal, that means the tissue has been pulled away from the bones," Joyce said. "Most likely by alligators, crabs, fish and stuff like that."

Gabby's body was found in Wyoming on September 19 near a campground she reportedly visited with Brian. The coroner revealed her death was a homicide, later confirming she was manually strangled.

In an eerie post, Brian shared chilling artwork showing a squirrel violently choking another that many say mirrors what happened to Gabby.
