Brian Laundrie likely ‘killed himself and didn’t sit around and wait to die,’ PI claims as human remains found

BRIAN Laundrie was more likely to "kill himself" than to "sit around and wait to die," a private investigator has claimed after human remains were found.

FBI Tampa confirmed on Wednesday that human remains were found near a notebook and backpack belonging to Laundrie but they have not been identified.

They were found in the Carlton Reserve where Brian told his parents he was going for a hike on September 13, the last day they saw him.

It comes after his fiancee Gabby Petito was found strangled to death in Wyoming on September 19.

Chris and Roberta Laundrie were at the scene when the remains and personal items were found, their attorney Steven Bertolino said.

Local Florida Private Investigator Bill Warner told The Sun that Laundrie is "most likely dead in the reserve."

"It's basically over ... most likely he is dead in the reserve, possibly killed himself, not likely he just sat there and waited to die," he speculated.

"Parents and sister vindicated, they did not know where he was, had no contact with him, it was all Brian's plan that he kept to himself," Warner also claimed.

During a press conference on Wednesday afternoon, FBI Tampa said that the remains had not yet been identified.

They confirmed they were found in an area that was submerged earlier in the search.

Special Agent Michael McPherson said investigators found "what appears to be human remains, along with personal items, such as a backpack and notebook belonging to Brian Laundrie."

He added that the reserve will remain closed as the investigation continues and urged the public for patience.

FBI agents did not answer questions and were met with a chant of "Justice for Gabby" as the press briefing ended.

Protesters also swarmed to the Laundrie family home.

"I know you have a lot of questions but we don't have all the answers yet," McPherson said.

The medical examiner was called in on Wednesday morning after the fugitive's parents reportedly discovered a white bag and a dark-colored object in a patch of brambles.

Footage also showed vehicles with government tags arriving at the scene.

The FBI later confirmed that "items of interest" were found, adding that their "evidence response team is processing the scene."

Laundrie's parents joined the search at the creek on Wednesday, as it was closed again just one day after being reopened to the public.

In video footage captured by Fox News, Roberta and Chris are seen speaking with a police officer on a hiking trail in Myakkahatchee Creek.

While much of the conversation is inaudible, the officer at one stage seems to tell them "we've found something" and advises the pair to go home.

The officer places his hand on Chris Laundrie's shoulder during the exchange. Roberta then turns to face him and wipes his cheek.

Teams are expected to remain on the ground for several days and a no-fly zone has been put in place over the area as the investigation continues.
