Brian Laundrie pictured smiling at reserve close to where his skull and bones were discovered


BRIAN Laundrie is seen smiling in a chilling photo taken at the same swamp where a year later his remains would be discovered.

The fugitive,sought after by authorities for alleged credit card misuse after the murder of fiance Gabby Petito, was found to have died in a swampy area of the Carlton Reserve near his Florida home - and a newly unearthed photo from Laundrie's Instagram shows he knew the area well and had visited before.

"Me and the coolest kid I know, my nephew. BFF,s since the day he was born," reads a photo caption Laundrie posted to his Instagram on July 6, 2020.

In the photo are Laundrie and his nephew sitting in a swing just steps from the swamp where authorities discovered his skull and bones on Wednesday.

An eerie Laundrie stares smiling into the camera as he holds onto the swing, with a tree tree and a swamp at the Carlton Reserve serving as a background.

Users have commented on the photo expressing dismay at the poor location.

"RIP. No wonder you picked this spot," wrote one user.

"Crazy to think that where this pic was taken is not to far from where they found his remains…" another wrote.

The 23-year-old's remains were found after over a month-long manhunt for Laundrie, after he arrived to his Florida home without his fiance Petito following a cross-country road trip that ended shortly.

Petito was last seen on August 24 leaving a hotel in Utah after the two were last seen together arguing on bodycam footage from August 12.
