Brian Laundrie is believed to have ‘shot himself’ and been ‘eaten by alligators,’ it has been claimed.

Gabby Petito’s fiancé’s remains were discovered at the Myakkahatchee Creek Environmental Park in Florida on October 20.

Steve Bertolino, the Laundrie family’s attorney, said in a statement: “Chris and Roberta Laundrie have been informed that the cause of death was a gunshot wound to the head and the manner of death was suicide.

It’s believed that Laundrie will not have a funeral. Instead, the family lawyer has confirmed the man’s remains will be cremated without a service.

Laundrie disappeared back in September following a trip with his 22-year-old partner.

The story made headlines across the world and Petito’s body was tragically found the following month in Wyoming.

An autopsy then confirmed that the YouTuber’s cause of death was strangulation.

Teton County Coroner Dr Brent Blue said at the time: “We hereby find the cause and manner of death to be, the cause, death by strangulation, and manner is homicide.

“By Wyoming state statute, no other information will be released about the autopsy.”

Petito’s family then gave an interview to Dr Phil and said they believed Laundrie was ‘too cowardly’ to kill himself.

Gabby’s father, Joe, told the host: “He is a coward. I would use some other words but I can’t use them on this show.”

He also took aim at his family, saying: “Anyone who lived in that house is a coward. They don’t know how to stand up for their actions.”
