The Federal Bureau of Investigation has given no new information on Gabby Petito's murder investigation in over a month. It appears the law enforcement agency has gone radio silent with updating the public on possible leads or new evidence.

The last new information released was Brian Laundrie's cause of death on November 23. As reported, the Florida District 12 Medical Examiner’s Office concluded that Laundrie died from a gunshot wound to the head.

As WFLA points out, the FBI has left the invested public on the edge of their seats about Gabby's homicide. The 22-year-old vlogger was found dead on September 19 near Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming.

She had been on a cross-country road trip with her fiancé (Laundrie) when he mysteriously returned to his parents' Florida home on September 1 in Gabby's van without her.

10 days later, her parents reported her missing, and a manhunt went underway.

According to the Teton County Coroner Dr. Brent Blue, Gabby's body had been "outside for three to four weeks” before it was discovered. He determined her cause of death as manual strangulation.

Laundrie was the sole person of interest in Gabby's homicide, but he disappeared without a trace as police searched for her. At that point, law enforcement didn't know if she was dead or alive.

After a five-week manhunt, partial remains were found at Myakkahatchee Creek Park in Florida. Based on dental records, they were later confirmed to belong to Laundrie.

It took weeks to uncover the cause of death. On November 23, his family's attorney made the shocking announcement — Laundrie had shot himself in the head. That was over one month ago, and the public is left with a slew of unanswered questions.

Earlier this month, Laundrie's parents filed a petition asking to be the administrators of his estate. They included his Bank of America account that showed he had $20,000 in his checking and savings, despite being charged with using an "unauthorized" Capital One debit card linked to Gabby in the days following her death.

In response to the Laundrie family's estate request, Gabby's mom filed her own petition demanding her daughter's possessions from the their North Port, FL, home. Gabby lived with the family for two years prior to her homicide.

The FBI reportedly assures WFLA that Gabby's murder investigation is ongoing and suggested the public check the FBI Denver and FBI Tampa Twitter accounts for updates.
