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.
