On Sunday afternoon, a body was found near Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming matching the description of missing YouTuber and influencer Gabby Petito. However, the investigation is still ongoing as the remains have not been officially identified. An autopsy scheduled for Tuesday may settle the question and provide more information about the cause of death.

The FBI and Florida police have identified Petito’s fiance, Brian Laundrie, as a person of interest in the case. Although the couple had been engaged and traveling together, tensions had been rising between the two. Earlier in the case, police shared videos of Petito and Laundrie engaged in a violent argument, and despite traveling together Laundrie returned to their Florida home without Petito. Laundrie has since been uncooperative with the police.

Following the discovery of remains, the police intensified their search for Laundrie, who went missing after returning home. Laundrie’s parents directed investigative officials towards Carlston Reserve, but the search was temporarily paused Sunday evening. On Monday, the police and FBI began investigating Laundrie’s house under a court-authorized warrant.
