Brian Laundrie's friend 'trying to tell himself Gabby's fiancé is ALIVE' as conspiracies rage about skeletal remains

BRIAN Laundrie’s pal has revealed he is finding it difficult to come to terms with the death of Gabby Petito's fiancé as conspiracy theories rage over the remains that were discovered.

Laundrie’s longtime friend told The Sun in an exclusive interview that the death “doesn’t feel real” as there is some “weird sense that Brian is still alive.”

The friend said: "I'm still trying to tell myself he's alive. 

"There hasn’t been any hard evidence that he is still alive but there have been statements that he is.

“There’s some weird feeling that he is alive and somehow he had enough time to get away.

“But with the recovered body, I don’t think he is alive,” said the friend, who wishes to remain anonymous. 


Internet personality Tana Mongeau took her conspiracy theory on Laundrie to her 7million followers on TikTok.

In the viral video, she says: “I know Brian Laundrie is trying to pull a Joe Goldberg,” a fictional serial killer from Netflix’s hit show You. 

“I’m not joking. I genuinely think something was placed there so that people would think the remains were him,” Mongeau continued. 

“Why were his remains found 24 hours after his parents started searching?” Mongeau questions in the video. “Because he is not dead.”

Mongeau said in the clip that “news sources confirmed” the body found was not Laundrie’s, “I guarantee you he’s in like Paris, France right now living his best life getting a croissant,” she continued.

Laundrie's remains were officially identified after an extensive search at the Myakkahatchee Creek Environmental Park in Florida on October 21.

His remains were sent to an anthropologist "for further evaluation" after autopsy results came back inconclusive, the family's attorney said.

The friend said that Laundrie's notebook could contain clues to solve Petito's death, whom a medical coroner determined had died due to strangulation.

"I think this is the outcome we expected," the friend told The Sun after Laundrie's remains were found and subsequently identified.

"I don't know if it's the one we would ask for," the friend.
