“Unfortunately St. John Health had told me I cannot use my personal computer at work even though other doctors do plus it is critical for my Coroner responsibilities. They have essentially forced me to resign effective February 10 due to this prohibition,” he wrote on Facebook.

The decision to force the doctor out of his role comes only days after he appeared on television to reveal Gabby's cause of death. He revealed she had been strangulated to death and determined her body had been inside Wyoming's Grand Teton National Park for three to four weeks.

As we previously reported, Brian returned home from a two-month cross-country road trip on September 1. The only problem was his fiancée was not with him. He decided to hire a lawyer and refused to speak with the police. A couple of days later, Brian went missing after telling his parents he was going for a hike at the Carlton Reserve.
