Gabby Petito update – FBI press conference names Brian Laundrie as ‘person of interest’ after Myakkahatchee Creek ‘find’


THE FBI has named Brian Laundrie a “person of interest” in Gabby Petito’s murder for the first time after finding a notebook in a Florida reserve along with “remains” on Wednesday.

Tampa special agent Michael McPherson told reporters: “The FBI and the North Port Police Department, and our law enforcement partners have been searching the area of the Carlton Reserve for Brian Laundrie, a person of interest in the murder of Gabby Petito.”

“Earlier today investigators found what appears to be human remains along with personal items, such as backpack and notebook, belonging to Brian Laundrie.”

This is thought to be the first time that FBI agents have used the word “murder” in this case.

Partial human remains were found in the reserve Wednesday, and a spokesperson for the Sarasota County Medical Examiner told The Sun that they were also called to the scene.

The remains have not been identified.

“What appears to be partial human remains have been found in the Carlton Reserve in an area previously underwater,” a producer with NBC News was told.

Gabby’s body was found in Grand Teton National park on September 19, eight days after her family reported her missing.
