Brian Laundrie's family won't have traditional funeral & haven't heard from cops since his bones were ID'd, lawyer says

BRIAN Laundrie's parents won't have a regular funeral for him and haven't spoken to police since his remains were identified, their lawyer revealed on Monday.

The 23-year-old's parents said they are cremating their son, whose remains of mostly skull and bone were found last week as a more than month-long manhunt for the fugitive in the wake of fiance Gabby Petito's murder.

Family attorney Steven Bertolino confirmed to the New York Post on Monday that the family will be opting to cremate their son's remains, which have been reduced to bones after days or even weeks of decay and exposure to weather and wildlife.

Bertolino added the remains are with an anthropologistafter an initial autopsy was inconclusive, and family has no plans about what will be done about Laundrie's ashes once he is cremated.

Authorities found Laundrie's remains in the Carlton Reserve last week.

His remains – said to be a skull and bones – were found near a swampy area in the reserve where is known to have visited in the past, and have since made their way to an anthropologist for "further evaluation."

Bertolino added that the family has stayed in the dark regarding their son's remains and belongings, saying neither local authorities or the FBI have reached out to them.

"No contact with LE [law enforcement] other than being informed of positive ID," Bertolino told the Post.

Laundrie's remains were officially identified on October 21, 2021, after an extensive search at Myakkahatchee Creek Environmental Park.

Laundrie's parents joined authorities in the hunt on Wednesday only to find their 23-year-old son's belongings within minutes of walking in.
