Brian Laundrie died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to his head, lawyer says

Source: NBC News

Brian Laundrie died from a gunshot wound to the head and his manner of death was a suicide, according to a statement from the Laundrie family attorney.

The update on Laundrie's manner of death and its cause came more than a month after an autopsy of his remains, which were found in wetland areas in Florida's Carlton Reserve on Oct. 20 and identified as belonging to him Oct. 21.

After the conclusion of that autopsy last month, his family's attorney, Steven Bertolino, said that "no manner or cause of death was determined." Since then, a forensic anthropologist has been analyzing Laundrie's remains.

Laundrie went missing Sept. 14, about two weeks after he returned to his home state of Florida following the disappearance of his fiancée, Gabby Petito.

1. I hope he died a slow, painful death

and I hope his parents are prosecuted for aiding his run from the law.

29. I Think He

killed himself because he killed her, so that wouldn't have worked. I believe his killing her was not intentional except possibly in the moment.

30. Strangling someone is pretty intentional. It takes time.

Possible it was during a fight as that is where their relationship was - violence from both. You think it's Man 1, not Man 2.

Seriously, I'm not saying the case should have been news, but it was, whether I like it or not.

31. What a shame to reduce her to a talking point. She was someone's daughter. She had her whole life

ahead of her. It's a tragedy and it's infuriating and we can highlight the statistical inequity of the amount of media attention giving to missing women of color without losing our basic humanity by slighting the death of a victim of domestic violence because she was white.

36. Exploit it as in make her death no great loss because she's white? I don't understand why

these two things are held as mutually exclusive. One can mourn the death of any woman to domestic violence, as well as understand, and amplify, that the deaths of women of color, indigenous women, don't receive the same media attention and that needs to change. But to toss off a domestic violence murder as "white woman syndrome" because one cannot hold two ideas at the same time - is wrong.

The story is over and it came to the obvious conclusion.

Do we need to hear any more? Will there be a TV movie?

12. His life could have been so uncomplicated by just telling Gabby that he no longer wished to merry

her. Let's go back home and start are own lives separate from each other, we will find love somewhere else.

That was all he needed to do, but then again, the criminal mind works in mysterious ways.

13. Ask me if I care

He was a coward. This is a case where I have no sympathy for the person committing suicide because he did it to avoid the consequences of his act, the murder of his fiancee. (It's a different matter entirely when a person commits suicide because of the mental pain they are in. I say this as the mother of a suicide victim.)

15. I assumed they found a gun with him then

But I didn't see anything about it in the report. Still, that would be far too basic a thing to overlook and I don't want to go anomaly-hunting as I haven't followed this case particularly.

Might have saved their son's life as well as helped get the truth about why and how Gabby was murdered.

"Laundrie went missing Sept. 14, about two weeks after he returned to his home state of Florida following the disappearance of his fiancée, Gabby Petito."

...and sad how life could go so wrong for these two young people...

...on the eve of Thanksgiving it almost makes me thankful for my crappy situation...
