FBI says that the remains found belong to Brian Laundrie. Based on the dental records, they confirm that it is a match.

But on social media, speculation is high, and many TikTok sleuths don’t accept the FBI findings and insist that Brian Laundrie is alive.

Law enforcement had considered Brian to be a person of interest in the death of Gabby Petito, his girlfriend.

As to the cause of death, authorities have yet to reveal the cause furthering the social media conversation that Brian is indeed alive and has escaped.

Many legal eagles have been speculating as to whether brian laundry’s parents can be charged with a crime, here’s the deal under our jurisprudence you don’t have to be a hero you don’t have to go to cops and tell them what you saw or tell them what you know you don’t have to save someone from a crime you don’t have to do anything you’re not compelled to tell the truth to police.

However, if you do speak to police and they have if you lie that is a crime so if they have remained silent and not misled law enforcement they may escape criminal liability, right now they are saying to the effect oh the FBI jogged our memories now we remember the last time we saw our son it was the day before.
