Officials said the Wyoming coroner will give an official update on Gabby Petito’s autopsy during a briefing with news reporters on Tuesday.
Teton County Coroner Brent Blue called a press conference for 2:30 p.m. Eastern time to discuss the autopsy decision, which would likely include Pettito’s cause of death.
Petito’s death was ruled a homicide, but officials have publicly disclosed few details about how he died or the condition of his body when it was found.
The autopsy ruling may also include details such as when Petito died.
The 22-year-old Long Island native went missing in late August on an unfortunate cross-country trip with her boyfriend, Brian Laundry, who is now one of the most famous fugitives in America.
More than a week after Laundry returned to his parents’ home in Florida, Pettito was reported missing by his parents in Suffolk County on Long Island on September 11 – without Pettito. His remains were found on September 19 at a remote camp site in Wyoming.
Laundry, 23, is the only person interested in the case, although he has not been charged with involvement in his death. The boyfriend, who has been on the lam for the past month, is being sought for illegally using Petito’s credit card when he was last seen alive.
Laundry leaves her parents’ home under mysterious circumstances shortly after Petito’s disappearance is reported.
A massive search for the laundry has been going on for weeks.
Members of the media are required to register and will attend the briefings virtually via Zoom. According to an announcement from his office, Blue will briefly take questions following his remarks.
