Federal arrest warrant issued for Brian Laundrie following the death of Gabby Petito

A federal arrest warrant has been issued in Wyoming for Brian Laundrie following the death of Gabrielle “Gabby” Petito.

The warrant, issued by the U.S. District Court of Wyoming, following a federal grand jury indictment, is for violation of “Use of Unauthorized Access Devices” related to the suspect’s activities following Petito’s death, according to a U.S. Department of Justice and FBI news release.

“While this warrant allows law enforcement to arrest Mr. Laundrie, the FBI and our partners across the country continue to investigate the facts and circumstances of Ms. Petito’s homicide,” said FBI Special Agent in Charge Michael Schneider.

Investigators confirmed Tuesday that a body found in Wyoming is that of Petito. The Teton County Coroner positively identified the missing 22-year-old woman’s remains, according to the Denver Office of the FBI.

Petito disappeared on a cross-country van trip with her boyfriend, Laundrie, 23, authorities said. The trip included stops in Colorado, Utah, and Wyoming. Her remains were found Sunday in the area of the Spread Creek camp sites near Grand Teton National Park, where Petito was last known to be alive in late August.

Laundrie has been missing since Sept. 14; on Sunday authorities searched a vast Florida wildlife reserve looking for him.
