Coroner to hold press conference on Gabby Petito autopsy on Tuesday

National and World News

TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — A coroner will hold a press conference Tuesday after the body of Gabby Petito was found in the Bridger-Teton National Forest in Wyoming in September.

Teton County Coroner Dr. Brent Blue will host a virtual press conference regarding the ruling on Petito’s autopsy.

Leaders with the Federal Bureau of Investigation confirmed on Sept. 19 human remains were found near Grand Teton National Park and matched the description of the missing 22-year-old North Port, Florida woman. An FBI spokesperson noted that full forensic identification had not yet been completed.

Along with an identification, the medical examiner could also reveal the cause of death in the autopsy.

Petito’s body was found the week following her fiancée’s Brian Laundrie’s disappearance, with a coroner confirming the discovery on Sept. 21.

Laundrie remains the only person of interest in Petito’s homicide case.

The search for 23-year-old has been scaled down since the FBI took over, and is now being “targeted based on intelligence,” police said.
