Brian Laundrie was eaten by alligators and wild pigs in the Florida park where his body was found, locals claim. Laundrie went missing early last month after returning from a road trip without his partner Gabby Petito.
Gabby Petito’s boyfriend, Brian Laundrie, was ‘eaten by alligators and feral hogs’
The remains of Laundrie, 23, were found Wednesday during an FBI search after his parents joined authorities in looking for him.
Laundrie went missing early last month after returning from a road trip without his partner Gabby Petito, 22, and refusing to cooperate with the investigation into his disappearance.
Yesterday, the FBI confirmed that the remains belonged to Laundrie by performing a dental records comparison, as all that remained of the body were “bones.”
They also confirmed that Laundrie’s body was found in an area previously covered by water.
John Widmann, who lives about a mile from the 25,000-acre Carlton Preserve, told the New York Post, “I walk through there all the time and there’s not a lot of debris left.”
“There are alligators, but the worst are the wild boars.
They are vicious animals and will eat anything. Any meat that is out in the open won’t go to waste. The coroner won’t have much to work with. Nature doesn’t waste anything.”
Gabby’s body was discovered in a remote area of Wyoming on Sept. 19 and an autopsy confirmed she had been strangled.
The FBI launched a search for Laundrie and named him a person of interest in Gabby’s death.
Gabby was last seen on Aug. 27, when she apologized to restaurant staff after Laundrie argued with them.
Laundrie briefly returned to her parents’ Florida home on Sept. 1 before disappearing, allegedly telling her parents she was going on an outing.
On Wednesday, human remains were found next to a backpack and notebook belonging to Laundrie at Myakkahatchee Creek Environmental Park.
