Former FBI Agent: Brian Laundrie’s Family May Face Charges |  KTAB

(NewsNation Now) – A lawyer representing Brian Laundrie’s family has confirmed that an autopsy has shown Laundrie to have died by suicide, specifically a gunshot to the head.

But some legal experts say that while Laundrie was the sole suspect in Gabby Petito’s death, it is possible that other people may be charged in the case.

An attorney for Gabby Petito’s family also suggested possible charges for “additional people” in a statement shared earlier this week.

“The family have been asked to make no comment and let the FBI continue their investigation,” said Rick Stafford, attorney for the Petito family. “The family has also been told to wait for the United States attorney’s office to decide whether other people will be charged. “

Retired FBI agent Jennifer Coffindaffer believes it is possible that Laundrie’s parents, Chris and Roberta, are facing charges.

“I think the laundries have possible guilt under 18 USC 3, which is incidental after the fact, and possibly 18 USC 1519, which is obstruction in terms of, if they have tampered with evidence. after this crime was committed, “Coffindaffer said during a segment on NewsNation’s” Banfield “.

Lawyer for the Laundrie family said when Brian’s parents first reported missing, they surrendered all of their guns, but one gun was missing.

Forensic pathologist Larry Koblinsky also believes members of the Laundrie family could find themselves in trouble with the law.

“I think they might have problems for helping and encouraging Brian Laundrie to escape detection, to flee the police,” Koblinsky said on “Banfield”.

“Maybe someone helped him, most likely the parents, or it could have been someone else we don’t even know,” Koblinksy said. “But again, it is likely that [Brian Laundrie] did not do this alone. He may have had some help. And anyone who helped him can be penalized, can face legal consequences for aiding and abetting his escape. “
