A group of people from the community gathered this Friday in front of the home of Brian Laundrie's parents in search of answers about the case. This after the FBI confirmed that the human remains found in the Florida nature reserve belong to the young man, the main suspect in the death of the influencer Gabby Petito.
The protesters are demanding that Laundrie's parents speak up about what happened, claiming they know more than they have revealed to the public.
Some of those present at the scene told the media that they need to tell the truth so that the story can have a closure.
Laundrie's parents remained at their North Port home without giving a statement.
The weeks-long search for the sole person interested in the Gabby Petito murder came to an end when Laundrie's skeletal remains were found in a North Port reservation on Wednesday.
The FBI said a comparison of dental records confirmed the remains were Laundrie.
Laundrie disappeared last month, a few days before Wyoming authorities found the remains of his fiancee Gabby Petito, who had been strangled.
Investigators also found a backpack and notebook of Laundrie, 23, near the remains while searching the Carlton Reservation in North Port, according to FBI Special Agent in Charge Michael McPherson.
Laundrie and Petito were on a cross-country trip, but questions grew suspicious when he returned to Florida without his fiancée, refused to speak to investigators, and then disappeared into the nature preserve. He has not been seen since September 13.
Teton County Medical Examiner Dr. Brent Blue ruled Petito's death a homicide and said he died from manual strangulation.
Laundrie's cause of death has yet to be determined.
