Petito family’s lawyer confirms body found in Wyoming has been identified as Gabby Petito

  • The body found in a Wyoming national forest has been confirmed to be Gabby Petito’s, the family’s lawyer told Insider.
  • The Teton County Coroner’s Office performed an autopsy on the body Tuesday. 
  • The results of the autopsy have not yet been released by the FBI or the Teton County Coroner’s Office.

The body found in a Wyoming national forest has been confirmed to be Gabby Petito’s, the family’s lawyer told Insider on Tuesday. 

FBI investigators announced Sunday that human remains were discovered in a remote campsite in Bridger–Teton National Forest that were “consistent” with the missing 22-year-old. 

The Teton County Coroner’s Office performed an autopsy on the body Tuesday. 

The attorney for Petito’s family, Richard Stafford, told Insider in a text message that the remains — found near the border of Grand Teton National Park — belonged to Petito. 

The results of the autopsy have not yet been released by the FBI or the Teton County Coroner’s Office.

Earlier on Tuesday, Stafford thanked reporters “for giving the Petito and Schmidt family time to grieve.”

“We will be making a statement when Gabby is home,” Stafford said.

The news comes as authorities, including the FBI, continue searching a vast nature preserve in Florida for Petito’s fiancée, Brian Laundrie, whose family reported him missing to police last Friday.
