What was the result of the investigation into Brian Laundrie's death?

According to Find Grave, Brian Laundrie's remains were found at the Myakkahatchee Creek Environmental Park in Florida. Moreover, his remains were to be cremated and his ashes were to be returned to his family. However, the family was reported to have had a traditional funeral.

Brian's backpack, shoes, a journal, a wooden box, a small notebook and a photo of Gabby were found near his remains. Moreover, the police found a rusty revolver which was reported to be the one used for the suicide. In the notebook, Brian confessed to killing Gabby.

After the autopsy, the death of Brian was revealed to be caused due to gunshot and the manner of death was considered a suicide as he clearly mentioned about it in his note. The autopsy report stated that there were no drugs in Brian's body. However, there were gnawing marks on his remains that were considered to be caused after his death by wild animals at the preserve. The case was indeed closed and Brian was declared to be the only one found guilty of Gabby's death.

Even though Brian's family helped the FBI and North Port police in the investigation but Gabby's family still thinks that they knew about the murder and hid it purposely. They filed a lawsuit against the Laundries. Moreover, they filed a wrongful death lawsuit for $50M against Moab police claiming that they mishandled the domestic violence incident. Before the murder happened, Moab police were informed about Brian hitting Gabby. However, they failed to arrest the couple as Gabby took the entire blame on herself saying she was the one who hit him first. 

To uncover more truths, ID is coming up with 'The Murder of Gabby Petito: What Really Happened'. The documentary is set to release on October 12 at 10/9c.
