The body found in a remote section of a Wyoming national forest has been positively identified as Gabby Petito, her family’s attorney said Tuesday, according to a report.
Lawyer Richard Stafford confirmed that the remains found Sunday belong to the 22-year-old Blue Point, Long Island native, who mysteriously disappeared in the midst of a cross-country trek with her boyfriend, Brian Laundrie, Insider reported.
An autopsy was performed Tuesday, but the Teton County coroner’s office has not yet officially announced the results, nor revealed the cause of death.
Petito last spoke to her family on Aug. 25 and was reported missing on Sept. 11 — 10 days after Laundrie, 23, returned to their home in North Port, Fla. without her.
The young couple was caught on police body camera after they were pulled over on reports of a possible domestic assault in Utah on Aug. 12.
The chilling footage showed a hysterical Petito telling police that the pair had gotten into a fight that morning.
“I have really bad OCD. I was apologizing to him saying I’m sorry I’m so mean,” Petito told the officer.
“We’ve been fighting all morning. He wouldn’t let me in the car before … he told me I needed to calm down.”
