Remains of Gabby Petito positively identified by Teton County coroner

Investigators confirmed Tuesday that a body found in Wyoming is that of Gabrielle “Gabby” Petito.

Teton County Coroner Dr. Brent Blue positively identified the missing 22-year-old woman’s remains, according to the Denver Office of the FBI.

Petito disappeared on a cross-country van trip with her boyfriend, Brian Laundrie, 23, authorities said.

Her remains were found Sunday in the area of the Spread Creek camp sites near Grand Teton National Park, where Petito was last known to be alive in late August.

“The FBI and our partners remain dedicated to ensuring anyone responsible for or complicit in Miss Petito’s death is held accountable for their action,” said FBI Special Agent in Charge Michael Schneider, in a news release.

Petito’s family reported her missing on Sept. 11, and Laundrie was named a person of interest in the case before he too disappeared. Authorities on Sunday were searching a vast Florida wildlife reserve for Laundrie, whose family said they had not seen him since Sept. 14 and that they believed he’d entered the reserve.
