Gabe Pettito News – Latest Update: Autopsy rules murder as police force to deny Brian Laundry rumor
Police continue to search for Brian Laundry
Police in Sarasota had to deny their reported arrest of Brian Laundry sometime Tuesday night. On Wednesday, the FBI said an autopsy confirmed that the remains found Sunday in a remote area of Wyoming were that of missing woman Gabi Pettito.
Dr. Brent Blue, the Teton County Coroner, confirmed that the remains belonged to Gabriel Vinora Pettito, date of birth March 19, 1999. Coroner Blue’s initial determination of the method of death was murder. The FBI said on Twitter that the cause of death was still pending final autopsy results.
Police searching for Brian Laundry on the 25,000-acre Carleton Preserve in Sarasota County, Florida, canceled their search for that day on Tuesday evening, but plan to return and continue their search on Wednesday. They are now asking the public to help with the chase.
Earlier, an eyewitness claimed to have seen Brian Laundry “acting strangely” in the Spread Creek portion of the Bridger-Teton National Forest while she was vacationing in Wyoming. The woman, Jessica Schultz, reported her encounter to the FBI, which helped them narrow their search area to Spread Creek. Police investigated trail camera footage that likely took a picture of Brian Laundry hiking, but determined there was no connection.
An examination of the remains, discovered Sunday in a remote area of Bridger Teton National Forest, in western Wyoming, was announced as police continued their search for Pettito’s fiancé, Mr. Laundry. Investigators have described him as a “significant person” in the case.
Officers spent much of Monday searching the Laundry family home and were photographed loading cardboard boxes into a truck and towing a silver Ford Mustang. His parents claim that they have not seen their son for more than a week.
Police received a tip-off that Laundry, 23, may have been seen near Mobile, Alabama, on Monday. They have yet to confirm whether the bullet is legitimate.

This was the news that no one wanted to hear, but most of them were probably expecting.
The FBI has announced that the remains found over the weekend at the North Jackson, Wyoming camp site were indeed those of Gabe Pettito, and that the coroner believed her death was a homicide – that is, she was killed by someone else.
After an autopsy that lasted several hours, in which a forensic pathologist assisted in an examination led by Teton County Coroner Brent Blue, the FBI said additional tests could continue to try to determine the exact cause of death for the missing 22-year-old.

Experts say searches in the wild are especially difficult
Police are looking for Brian Laundry at Carleton Preserve, a 25,000-acre nature reserve and wilderness near the Laundry family’s home in North Port, Florida.
Places like the nature reserve are hard to find people in, Chris Boyer, executive director of the nonprofit National Association of Search and Rescue (NASAR) told CNN.
He explained that foliage and a lack of sunlight affect visibility, while those trying to evade authorities may be more likely to wear clothing that helps them blend in with their surroundings.
Mr. Boyer added that in order to avoid helicopters or drones, an individual could crawl into the creek beds and avoid leaving traces behind.
The NASAR director suggested that technology such as the use of night vision goggles, drones and thermal sensors could help track Mr. Laundry.
“It’s really hard to find people even when they want to find them,” he told CNN on Monday.
“The search area starts to grow every hour he can be in the car or on foot,” Boyer added. “To be honest it becomes very daunting.”
