The suicide revelation comes more than a month after Laundrie’s skeletal remains were found in Florida’s Carlton Reserve on October 20.
“Chris and Roberta Laundrie have been informed that the cause of death was a gunshot wound to the head and the manner of death was suicide,” Bertolino told The Sun.
“Chris and Roberta are still mourning the loss of their son and are hopeful that these findings bring closure to both families.”
Bertolino did not reveal where the gun Laundrie used to kill himself came from.
The autopsy revealed that the investigation included using information from the scene response, examining the skeletal remains, a DNA and dental comparison, and consultation with a forensic odontologist and anthropologist.
Even before the suicide, sleuths took a deep look at Laundrie’s Pinterest account, filled with several disturbing contents.

One post, which described “afterlife,” depicted Bart Simpson’s soul leaving his body as the character says, “Hey cool I’m dead!”.
Other material pinned onto the 23-year-old’s account are two t-shirts that read “Sinners Are Welcome” on the back of one and the word “Conspiracy” wrapped around the collar of another tee.
‘GRIM REAPER’ OBESSION
A July 2020 Instagram post was captioned: “Grim Reaper leading sheep to the slaughter” and shows a herd of sheep surrounded by ghoulish figures wielding scythes.
Some of the reapers have been carved into mousetraps and outlined in red.
A drawing, which Laundrie says was crafted with pen and watercolor, shows Frankenstein’s monster chained to a chair made of rock and wood.
In the black and white image, the monster has shackles around his ankles, feet and neck.
The 23-year-old shared several photos of the demonic comic book character Hellboy across his social media platforms.

One picture showed a stitch of a woman covered in leaves and holding a skull., while another showed skeletal hands reaching for a knife.
In one post – or “pin” – Laundrie saved an image of the definition of nyctophilia, a “love of darkness or night, finding relaxation or comfort in the darkness.”
In a second post, in an album titled “bleak,” Laundrie saved an image of a “Witchcraft moon phase magic pocket guide” listed for sale on Etsy.
“Are you a Witch? A fan of Magick? Interested in the unexplainable, the occult? If the answer is yes, then these ‘Pocket Guides for Witches’ are for you!” the book’s description reads.
‘A KILLER IS MADE’
Reality TV detective Dog the Bounty Hunter claims he was shocked at the disturbing posts he witnessed on Laundrie’s social media profiles.
He claims the posts offer a window into Brian – and suggest he may have become twisted by the dark side.
Dog said: “A killer is made, and he is built, to be a killer. He built himself to be that by looking at the dark side stuff.”
He added: “This is what happens when your kid is looking at those kinds of things, it catches on, and it’s demons and it’s blood and it’s this and it’s that, look what that led to.”
Laundrie was last seen alive on September 13, when he told his parents, Chris and Roberta, that he was going for a hike at the Carlton Reserve.
His remains were found near a notebook and backpack belonging to him on October 20 as his parents searched the reserve.
The FBI also confirmed the identification of Laundrie’s remains in a statement.
“On October 21, 2021, a comparison of dental records confirmed that the human remains found at the T. Mabry Carlton, Jr. Memorial Reserve and Myakkahatchee Creek Environmental Park are those of Brian Laundrie,” it read.
“The FBI is grateful for the tremendous investigative support from our partners.”
Gabby Petito’s family said at the time that they would not be commenting on Laundrie’s death.
According to the FBI, Gabby’s remains were positively identified by a Wyoming coroner on September 21.
