MYSTERY surrounds the weapon used by Brian Laundrie to commit suicide after it was revealed he killed himself with a bullet to the head.
Laundrie's remains were found in Florida's Carlton Reserve on October 20 – a month after his fiance Gabby was found strangled to death at a Wyoming campsite.
"Chris and Roberta Laundrie have been informed that the cause of death was a gunshot wound to the head and the manner of death was suicide," Laundrie family attorney Steven Bertolino told The Sun on Tuesday.
"Chris and Roberta are still mourning the loss of their son and are hopeful that these findings bring closure to both families," he added.
Bertolino did not reveal where the gun Laundrie used to kill himself came from or if it has been located.
And when asked about the weapon used by Laundrie, he told The Sun: "Not certain."
Fox News reports that when the Laundrie family handed over their firearms to the FBI in September one was missing.
It is not clear if this is believed to be the gun used in Brian's suicide.
The remains, and the articles belonging to Brian, were found in a stretch of land inside the 24,000-acre park that until recently had been submerged in floodwaters.
Laundrie had been reported missing by his parents on September 17 – days after police were also informed about Gabby's disappearance.
In September pictures from inside the home Brian shared with Gabby and his parents, a gun – painted to resemble the American flag – appears to hang on the wall.
A chilling poster depicting violent stabbings and beatings also sits atop a bookshelf in the image.
The picture also shows a Darth Vader mask and a collection of the Watchmen comics.
TIKTOK 'GUN' PIC
After that image was widely circulated sleuths then wildly claimed that Gabby may have been holding a gun in a separate photo posted to her TikTok account.
The image was uploaded in January this year as part of a montage of photos.
Gabby is posing with the object near her mouth where she appears to be kissing the tip.
It's not known if the object is a firearm and the date of the photograph remains unknown.
But Twitter users sent a screenshot of the TikTok snap to the FBI.
Then in October sleuths speculated a gun found weighted down in water by fisherman could be connected to Gabby's death.
The firearm was found at the same park Laundrie had visited with family in September, leading some to believe the weapon could be linked to the case.
Christopher Sacco, 35, dredged out the black revolver, which was wrapped in a bag and secured to a rock with red and white twine, according to the Tampa Bay Times.
Sacco and his friend had been fishing near a playground area at the park which Laundrie stayed at with his family on September 6 and 7.
That weapon was handed to the Pinellas Country Sheriff's Office.
Brian returned to his parents' home on September 1 without Gabby.
It was not until ten days later that Gabby's parents reported her missing after not being be able to contact their daughter or Brian.
Brian – named as a person of interest in the case – was refusing to cooperate with cops before his own disappearance and death.
