Investigators are now calling the death of Gabby Petito “murder” following the discovery of human remains believed to belong to suspect Brian Laundrie.

At a press conference announcing the discovery at a campsite in Myakkahatchee Creek Environmental Park, FBI special agent in charge of the bureau’s Tampa office, Michael McPherson, said it would take some time to confirm whether the remains belong to Mr Laundrie.

“A person of interest in the murder of Gabby Petito,” Mr McPherson said.

The case has been ruled a homicide by the Teton County Coroner, and this is believed to be the first time her death has been described as murder by a law enforcement official.

The difference between homicide and murder is a significant legal distinction, as homicide is a broad term that includes both the legal and illegal killing of one person by another person. A murder, however, is when that killing is illegal and done with some form of malice or intent. All murders are homicide, but not all homicides are murders.
