MIAMI (AP) - An attorney for the family of Brian Laundrie says he fatally shot himself in the head.

Attorney Steve Bertolino said in a statement that Laundrie’s parents have been informed that the cause of death was a gunshot wound to the head, and the manner of death was suicide.

Laundrie’s skeletal remains found in a Florida nature preserve were positively identified last month using dental records.

Laundrie had been the subject of a manhunt for more than a month as investigators searched for clues in the slaying of his girlfriend, Gabby Petito, during their cross-country van trip together.
