New gruesome details have just been revealed about Brian Laundrie’s death and the days following.
Laundrie died due to a self-inflicted gunshot wound to his head.
His remains were discovered in October 2021 and confirmed by dental records. He was discovered in the Carlton Nature Reserve near his parent’s home in North Port, Florida.
New Autopsy Reveals Gruesome Details About Laundrie’s Death
Brian is responsible for the death of his former fiancé, Gabby Petito. He strangled her to death while they were on a cross-country National Parks road trip tour. Her body was discovered in September 2021.
A new autopsy report has just come out with grizzly new details about Laundrie’s death.
The self-inflicted gunshot wound caused multiple fractures to his skull, the full autopsy report said.
The report was released by a Florida medical examiner’s office.
Per the report, the single bullet entered his head at the left temple and exited through the right, traveling slightly upward.
Authorities recovered “the vast majority of the skeleton.” A few bones were missing from his teeth and face.
His Bones Were Gnawed & Chewed On By Animals
The autopsy report found his bones were “gnawed” and “chewed” on from “post-mortem scavenging/carnivore activity.”
Additionally, his bones were “scattered about in plain sight.”A toxicology report found no drugs in Laundrie’s system at the time of his death.
Other new details from the scene of his death include personal items found along with his skeletal remains.
A pair of green shorts, slip-on shoes, white metal ring, backpack, and a handgun were found on the ground by his body.
The scene was secluded by “overgrown vegetation,” the document said.
Authorities also located a drybag with Laundrie’s journal and a wooden box with a small notebook and a picture of himself.
At the “secondary scene” not far from where his skeletal remains were located, law enforcement found animal skeletal remains, which could be evidence of hunting, a handwritten half note, and a “MOAB Coffee Roasters” hat.
Brian Admitted To Killing Gabby Petito
Last month, The Blast reported on Laundrie’s admission to killing Gabby.
On Wednesday, October 20, the NBC New York reported “items belonging to Brian Laundrie were found by his own parents on a trail he frequented at the Florida environmental park center to the national manhunt, the family’s attorney confirmed.”
The items were found after a “brief search.”
The FBI revealed the disturbing evidence found in his notebook on Friday, January 21.

Brian admitted he killed his fiancée in a notebook entry he wrote shortly before his took his own life.
The murderer also sent text messages between his and Petito’s cellphone in the days after she was strangled to death.
This was his attempt “to deceive law enforcement by giving the impression Ms. Petito was still alive,” the FBI Denver said in its final investigative update.
FBI Denver also revealed that Gabby’s parents met with the FBI at the Tampa Field Office on Thursday, January 20, given the investigation will be closed soon.
“All logical investigative steps have been concluded in this case,” said FBI Denver Division Special Agent in Charge Michael Schneider. “The investigation did not identify any other individuals other than Brian Laundrie directly involved in the tragic death of Gabby Petito. The FBI’s primary focus throughout the investigation was to bring justice to Gabby and her family. The public’s role in helping us in this endeavor was invaluable as the investigation was covered in the media around the world. On behalf of the FBI, I want to express my deepest appreciation to the public for the thousands of tips that were provided during the investigation, and to our local, state and federal law enforcement partners for their work throughout the investigation.”
The FBI opened its investigation into the disappearance of Gabby on September 12 after her mother reported her missing on September 11.
