Breaking: Brian Laundrie Cause of Death Announced

( – BREAKING NOW: Just moments ago, it was announced that Brian Laundrie, the leading suspect in the murder of Gabby Petito, died from a gunshot to his head.

The manner of death is now officially listed as suicide.

An attorney who represents Laundrie’s parents said the following in a statement to the New York Post:

“Chris and Roberta Laundrie have been informed that the cause of death was a gunshot wound to the head, and the manner of death was suicide. Chris and Roberta are still mourning the loss of their son and are hopeful that these findings bring closure to both families.”

As most Americans recall, Gabby Petito’s death was ruled a homicide, and the cause of her death was reported to be “manual strangulation.”

Following Gabby’s disappearance and the discovery of her remains in Wyoming, Laundrie became the subject of an intense and massive manhunt led by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

However, Laundrie’s parents found his remains in a nature preserve not far from their Florida home.

This is a breaking news report, and it will be updated if more news develops.
