The boyfriend of killed blogger Gabby Petito “admitted responsibility” for her murder in a journal found with his body, according to the FBI.
Brian Laundrie, 23, shot himself after Petito was found in September strangled in a Wyoming campground. The couple had been on a cross-country road trip.
Laundrie’s body was found in a Florida nature preserve near his parents home on 20 October.
The murder of Petito, 22, drew national media attention.
“The investigation did not identify any other individuals other than Brian Laundrie directly involved in the tragic death of Gabby Petito,” FBI Denver Division Special Agent in Charge Michael Schneider said in a statement on Friday.
“The FBI’s primary focus throughout the investigation was to bring justice to Gabby and her family.”
He said all “logical investigative steps have been concluded” in the case.
In a statement, the Petito family thanked law enforcement for their investigation. They gave particular praise to the FBI’s Victim Services Department, which they said helped the “entire family navigate through the worst moments of their lives”.
