NORTH PORT, Fla. (AP) — FBI agents and police searched the home of the boyfriend wanted for questioning in the death of 22-year-old Gabby Petito, whose body was discovered Sunday at a Wyoming national park months after the couple set out on a cross-country road trip.
The FBI gave no details on the search by at least a dozen law enforcement officers, but agents removed several boxes and towed away a car neighbors said was typically used by 23-year-old Brian Laundrie’s mother. Local media said Laundrie’s parents were seen getting into a police vehicle.
Laundrie and Petito had been living with his parents at the North Port, Florida home before the road trip on which she died.
The young couple had set out in July in a converted van to visit national parks in the West. They got into a fight along the way, and Laundrie was alone when he returned in the van to his parents’ home on Sept. 1.
In Wyoming, the FBI announced yesterday that agents had found a body on the edge of Grand Teton National Park, which the couple had visited. No details on the cause of death were released.
An autopsy is set for today.
