The Sun spoke to a spokesperson at the funeral home who confirmed there is a memorial visitation scheduled for Sunday but would not confirm the name.

The outlet claims the family will cremate the remains in Wyoming, where she was found in Grand Teton National Park, before transporting the ashes to New York.

The FBI did not comment when contacted by The Sun for confirmation if the coroner had released Gabby’s body to the family. Earlier this week, the FBI Denver Division confirmed the autopsy was complete and the official manner of death was a homicide.

As Radar previously reported, Gabby and her 23-year-old fiancé Brian Laundrie left for a two-month cross-county road trip on July 2. They were traveling in a 2021 Ford Transit van.

Brain returned home to Florida on September 1 but without Gabby. Gabby’s family reported her missing on September 11. Brian refused to speak to the police and is currently on the run from justice.

The FBI is making moves to find Brian. A judge issued a federal arrest warrant against him “pursuant to a Federal Grand Jury Indictment related to Mr. Laundrie’s activities following the death of Gabrielle Petito.”

Federal documents accuse Brian of using an unauthorized Capital One Bank card between August 30 and September 1, pulling out more than $1,000. The FBI charged the ‘person of interest’ with intent to defraud.

They released a statement reading, “While this warrant allows law enforcement to arrest Mr. Laundrie, the FBI and our partners across the country continue to investigate the facts and circumstances of Ms. Petito's homicide. We urge individuals with knowledge of Mr. Laundrie's role in this matter or his current whereabouts to contact the FBI."

Despite numerous alleged sightings of Brian, the various law enforcement agencies searching for him have yet to track him down.
