Brian Laundrie most likely caused his own death.

Florida law enforcement officials believe he committed suicide.

Sarasota County Sheriff Kurt Hoffman said, “by all accounts [he] probably committed suicide”

The Sheriff believes his remains were found “right out where we thought they he was.”

The Sheriff and North Port Police Chief attended a panel on October 29.

Police Chief Todd Garrison said that by the time they became lead agency, Brian was dead.

A former homicide detective from Washington D.C. also believes Laundrie killed himself.

Det. Ted Williams believes Laundrie died by his own hand, probably from a gunshot wound.

Human remains were found on October 20, and the following day dental records confirmed they were those of Brian Laundrie.
