Almost two weeks ago, the FBI revealed that they had found human remains during their search for Brian Laundrie in Florida’s Carlton Reserve.
Michael McPherson of FBI Tampa also said in the press conference that along with the human remains, which they do not know who they belong to, personal belongings of Laundrie’s were found, “such as a backpack and notebook.” The area where the remains and the belongings were found had previously been underwater.
On October 21st, the FBI put out a press release with the news that the remains in fact did belong to Brian Laundrie.
According to the Daily Mail, Sheriff Kurt Hoffman said in a public community meeting that Brian “by all accounts probably committed suicide.” And it probably took place before the search for him even began.
Experts have said that it will be difficult to “pinpoint a cause of death” because his body was likely under water for several weeks, so we may never know.
