FBI confirms remains found in Wyoming are Gabby Petito's

The FBI confirmed on Tuesday that the remains found in Wyoming are those of Gabby Petito, the 22-year old girl who was reported missing earlier this month while on a trip with her boyfriend.

The FBI office in Denver, Colo., said Teton County Coroner Dr. Brent Blue’s initial determination on the manner of Petito’s death is a homicide, but the final cause of death is still pending until the final autopsy results are available. 

The announcement from the FBI comes as authorities continue to seach for Brian Laundrie, Petito’s fiancé who was seen by his parents last week. 

“The FBI’s commitment to justice is at the forefront of each and every investigation,” FBI Denver Special Agent in Charge Michael Schneider said in a statement.

“The FBI and our partners remain dedicated to ensuring anyone responsible for or complicit in Ms. Petito’s death is held accountable for their actions. Mr. Brian Laundrie has been named a person of interest. Anyone with information concerning Mr. Laundrie’s role in this matter or his current whereabouts should contact the FBI,” he added.
