NORTH PORT, Fla. (WWSB) - It was a quiet day on Thursday outside of the Laundrie home, without any signs of Roberta and Chris Laundrie. They are now grieving the loss of their son, Brian.

“I was shocked that the determination by the medical examiner happened so quickly,” said David Fulmer, a Punta Gorda resident. “And that this would put to rest any theories that Brian’s parents planted the evidence because I thought that, too. I mean this is definitive.”

A memorial for Gabby Petito continues to grow outside of the Laundrie home. Visitors even placed flowers and a balloon at the front door. The world was informed Thursday that the remains found at Myakkahatchee Creek Environmental Park have been identified as Brian Laundrie.

“This is the very area of the park that we initially informed law enforcement, I believe it was September 17, that Brian would be most likely in the preserve in this particular area,” the Laundrie’s family attorney, Steven Bertolino, told CNN.

Outside of North Port City Hall, someone has placed photos of Gabby with verses from the Bible. Back outside of the Laundrie home, people continue to visit.

“We’ve been following this story quite a bit, it’s so hard to put how that happened right like that,” said Shane Bloyer, a visitor from Maryland. “We’re thankful that something has been found, with all the time that’s been put in and sad at the same time for their family as well.”
