Brian Laundrie's parents have been informed the remains found inside the Carlton Reserve this week belong to their fugitive son.
Reporter Brian Entin, who has been covering the case extensively, tweet, "Laundrie parents have been informed the remains are Brian's, according to their attorney."
A portion of the human remains found by the FBI this week included a skull. The bombshell revelation was reported by NBC's Pete Williams who claims sources close to the investigation spilled the details to him.
The FBI released a statement confirming the news. "A comparison of dental records confirmed that the human remains found at the T. Mabry Carlton, Jr. Reserve and Myakkahatchee Creek Environment Park are those of Brian Laundrie."
During a press conference, North Port Police Spokesperson said, "They are human remains, no doubt there. I would say that the remains were consistent with one individual, you know skeletal remains,"
The Laundrie family has yet to release an official statement on the matter.
The discovery of Brian's body brings an end to a month-long manhunt for the only person of interest in his fiancée Gabby Petito's murder. As we previously reported, Gabby and Brian left for a two-month cross-country road trip in July.
However, on September 1, Brian returned home in Florida without Gabby. He refused to talk to the police and hired a lawyer. He went for a hike on September 13. His parents told the FBI he never returned home.
A couple of days later, Gabby's remains were found inside Wyoming's Grand Teton National Park. The autopsy revealed her cause of death was strangulation and her body had been there for 3-4 weeks.
Gabby's family has yet to comment on the news of Brian's body being found. They recently picked up the slain 22-year-old's body from Wyoming and flew it back to New York.
