CHICAGO, IL - MAY 27: Crime scene tape is stretched around the front of a home where a man was shot on May 28, 2017 in Chicago, Illinois. Chicago police have added more than 1,000 officers to the streets over the Memorial Day weekend, hoping to put a dent in crime, during what is typically one of the more violent weekends of the year. In 2016, 6 people were killed and another 65 were wounded by gun violence over the Memorial Day weekend. (Photo by Scott Olson/Getty Images)

The search for missing YouTuber Gabby Petito has now become a homicide investigation. The FBI says Teton County Coroner Dr. Brent Blue’s “initial determination for the manner of death is homicide” after completing the autopsy on human remains found at a Wyoming national park. The FBI added that the cause of death “remains pending final autopsy results.”

YouTubers helped authorities narrow down the search area before the body was found, and the FBI is asking for more help. Specifically, the FBI says they’re looking for information from anyone who used the Spread Creek Dispersed Camping Area between August 27 and 30.

While her boyfriend, Brian Laundrie, hasn’t been declared a suspect in the case, he has been declared a person of interest. Police have been searching for Laundrie for a week after he told his parents he was going hiking in a nearby nature preserve and never came home.
