It was revealed by the FBI last month that Brian had "claimed responsibility" for Gabby's death after a notebook was discovered near his remains after he also went missing during the investigation.

The autopsy report revealed that other items were found in his possession after his remains were found 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 noted to be found 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 was found by Brian's father is thought to have had notebooks and photos of his son, as well as an unused tent also being found.

Brian's body was discovered back in October of last year, weeks after he had been named a person of interest in Gabby's disappearance and then murder.

22 year old Gabby and her 23 year old fiance had spent the summer travelling across the United States in a white van and posting their trip to YouTube, but it was ended when Laundrie returned to his parent's home in North Port, Florida without Gabby.

She was then reported as missing by her family 10 days later.

During the search for Gabby, Laundrie's family refused to cooperate with the police, only speaking to the FBI a week after the case began, only speaking about their son who then had gone missing too.

They claimed he was last seen leaving their home "visibly upset" to head on a hike in the Carlton Reserve on September 13th, and his body was discovered a month later.

At this time, Gabby's remains had been located and it was confirmed she had died by strangulation, with her body discovered in Grand Teton National Park on September 19th and was declared a homicide.

It was only a matter of days after her body was discovered that the U.S. District Court of Wyoming issued a warrant for Laundrie's arrest for the activities that went on after she went missing, but not for the murder itself.
