Investigators confirmed the identification of Laundrie’s skeletal remains the day after they were discovered on the Carlton Reservation near his backpack and clothing.

Officials say the identification was made using dental records.

“On Oct. 21, 2021, a comparison of dental records confirmed that the human remains found at the T. Mabry Carlton, Jr. Memorial Preserve and Myakkahatchee Creek Environmental Park are those of Brian Laundrie,” tweeted the FBI’s Denver office.

The statement added: “The FBI is grateful for the tremendous investigative support from our partners: the North Port Police Department, Sarasota Police Department, Jackson Police Department, Charlotte County Sheriff’s Office, Lee County Sheriff’s Office, Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office, Teton County Sheriff’s Office, Teton County Search and Rescue, Florida Wildlife Commission, National Park Service and U.S. Forest Service.”

Laundrie family attorney Steve Bertolino said the family had been informed of the identification of their son’s body.

“Chris and Roberta Laundrie have been informed that the remains found yesterday in the preserve are in fact Brian’s,” Bertolino said in a statement.

“We have no further comment at this time and ask that you respect the privacy of the Laundrie family at this time.”

Earlier in the day, North Port police said the human remains found on the Carlton reservoir were definitely those of a human being.

Investigators also found clothing believed to belong to Brian Laundrie.
