Gabby Petito Autopsy Report/Update in Details
Gabby Petito Autopsy Report/Update in Details – Gabby Petito’s autopsy report will determine the way of death, but the cause has not been revealed. The autopsy, which began last week, generally takes two to three weeks, according to the Wyoming medical examiner.
The FBI’s visit to Brian Laundrie’s parents’ home on Sunday was brief, with agents observed departing with a brown paper bag just minutes after entering the front door.
In the homicide inquiry involving the death of his fiancée Gabby Petito, Laundrie remains a person of interest.
Petito’s body was discovered last week and recognized by a coroner. The 22-year-body old’s was discovered in Wyoming around ten weeks after the pair left on a trip to various national parks in July.
The agency requested some of Brian Laundrie’s personal possessions to help with DNA matching, according to the Laundrie’s attorney, Steven Bertolino. The Laundries cooperated, according to the New York attorney, but he did not elaborate on what was confiscated.
Brian Laundrie’s parents are unaware of his whereabouts, according to his family attorney.
The FBI has likewise been tight-lipped about the items seized by its agents.
However, because to breakthroughs in testing, investigators don’t need much, according to Tylor Barnhart, a forensic biologist at Florida International University’s renowned National Forensic Science Technology Center.
Barnhart explained, “The procedure has gotten so sensitive that they may get a DNA profile from only a little sample.”
Last Monday, when the FBI examined the house for several hours and left with boxes of potential evidence, DNA could have been collected. The agency, once again, refused to comment on the results of the search.
According to police documents, Gabby Petito’s van, driven by Laundrie, who slept in the car for weeks, was also searched.
Brian Laundrie was found in Sarasota County after a ‘scaled back and targeted’ search.
Another probable DNA source, the Laundrie’s Ford mustang, was towed away from the Laundrie residence last Friday, only to be returned the next day.
Several law enforcement sources expressed their thoughts on why extra DNA samples might be collected more than once.
One possible motivation, according to retired police detective Peter Massey, a criminology instructor at USF, is to seal a DNA link between a suspect and a crime scene.
On Tuesday, the Petito family will conduct a press conference in New York.
“To begin with, police want to have a known piece of evidence, something they know is linked to a suspect,” Massey explained. “We’ll refer to it as a hub. We may then extend the spokes out from that hub to DNA found in the van, DNA found in the swamp, or anywhere law enforcement will find it.”
Several experts agreed on the one DNA-related item they would require from a suspect in a criminal case.
Barnhart replied, “I’d say a toothbrush.” “Something that he utilizes on a daily basis and you’re certain has his DNA profile on it.”
Razors, hairbrushes, and pillowcases are also on the list of favorite DNA sources, according to Barnhart.
