Police have released the full autopsy report for Brian Laundrie, just weeks after they confirmed Laundrie had admitted to the murder of his fiancée, Gabby Petito.

Last month, the FBI confirmed that Laundrie, who sparked a national manhunt after he went missing, had “claimed responsibility” for Petito’s death in written statements found in a notebook near his remains.

The comprehensive autopsy report also revealed which other items were in his possession, after the 23-year-old took his own life at the Myakkahatchee Creek Environmental Park in Florida.

A “pair of green shorts with a green belt, two slip-on shoes, a backpack with unknown contents, a white metal ring, and a handgun,” were among some of the items named in the autopsy.

“The 'secondary' scene contained skeletal animal remains, a handwritten half note, and a hat with the logo 'MOAB Coffee Roasters,'" the report added.

A bag, found by Laundrie’s dad, is thought to have held notebooks and photos of Laundrie.

A tent, which had not been used, was also found in the area.

Laundrie’s remains were found in October last year, months after he was named as a person of interest in the murder of Petito.

The case received international attention and interest after Laurie returned from a road trip with Petito, but without his partner.

Petito’s family had not heard from her in the weeks before Laurie returned, alerting the authorities on 11th September.

Her body had been found in a remote area in Wyoming just eight days later, and a post-mortem confirmed she had been strangled.

Unsettling footage that was released after Petito went missing shows the YouTuber pulled over by police on 12th August. In the bodycam clip, the 22-year-old can be seen crying after telling officers her and Laundrie had been arguing.

The pair were separated overnight, but no charges were brought.

They had been living in the campervan while travelling across the States, with their journey documented on social media.

It has also been reported that Laundrie's parents will not be charged in connection to Petito's death.

Laundrie family attorney Steven Bertolino said on Friday: “To my knowledge there will be no charges.”

Roberta and Chris Laundrie had been criticised Petito’s family for remaining silent amid and not disclosing any knowledge of their son's whereabouts.
