Gabby Petito’s remains found, authorities search fiance’s home
On Sunday, authorities apparently discovered Gabby Petito’s body at Grand Teton National Park, and police searched the Florida home of her fiance, Brian Laundrie, on Monday.
Video footage showed at least a dozen officers serve a search warrant to Laundrie’s parents and enter their house in North Port.
In July, Petito, 22, and Laundrie, 23, embarked on a cross-country road trip to visit national parks. Utah police released bodycam footage in which they had pulled the couple over during an argument.
Authorities found remains, which the FBI said were most likely Petito’s, in Bridger-Teton national forest on the east boundary of Grand Teton National Park. The FBI’s Charles Jones said the body resembled Petito’s description, but a cause of death was to be determined.
“On behalf of the FBI personnel and our partners, I would like to extend sincere, sincere, and heartfelt condolences to Gabby’s family,” Jones said. “As every parent can imagine, this is an incredibly difficult time for the family and friends. Our thoughts and prayers are with them. We ask that you all respect their privacy as they mourn the loss of their daughter.”
