Gabby Petito’s dad doesn’t expect Brian Laundrie’s notebook to close

Police may be able to uncover more clues at Myakkahatchee Creek Environmental Park, a retired NYPD homicide detective has suggested to The sun.

Meanwhile, 3,400 people have signed a petition calling for a formal investigation into how the North Port Police Department handled the investigation into Gabby Petito and Brian Laundrie.

The FBI will have reconstructed Brian Laundrie’s “digital footprint” and will be aware of his movements and communications in the days leading up to his death, according to an expert.

Laundrie’s remains are being examined by a forensic anthropologist in Sarasota County in an attempt to determine the cause of his death.

Authorities are also trying to repair a personal notebook recovered from a dry bag near his body as part of their investigation into the death of his girlfriend Gabby Petito.

Laundrie’s digital communications, including his texts and emails, use of social media and internet browsing history before his death, will be crucial to their investigation.

Ms Petito’s family strongly suspect that Laundrie was impersonating her in text messages after her death in an attempt to confuse them and the police.

Cell phone records are also expected to track the movement of Laundrie between Wyoming and Florida, where he returned on September 1.
