BRIAN Laundrie eerily shared images of skeletons covered in plants on social media months before his skeletal remains were found in a Florida swap amid an investigation into the murder of his fiancee, Gabby Petito.
A partial human skull and bones identified to belong to Laundrie, 23, were recovered from a marshy patch of land inside Myakkahatchee Creek Park, in North Port, on October 20 following a five-week search.
He vanished on September 13 after telling his parents he was going hiking in the nearby Carlton Reserve – two days after Gabby was reported missing by her mother in New York.
The couple had been on a cross-country road trip in their repurposed van when Gabby vanished sometime around August 27. Brian returned home without her on September 1 before disappearing himself less than two weeks later.
Gabby's remains were found at a campsite near Grand Teton National Park on September 19. An autopsy determined that she had been strangled to death between three-to-four weeks earlier.
A cause, manner, and time of death for Brian has not yet been determined. An autopsy came back inconclusive late last month and his remains are now being examined by a forensic pathologist.
While he was never officially named a suspect in Gabby's death, he is the sole person of interest in the case.
As an investigation continues, sleuths have delved into Brian's social media posts in the weeks before his death in search of clues as to what may have happened between Petito and him on their ill-fated trip.
Posts saved on his Pinterest page include images of skeletons, depictions of death, and other strange art that some claim foreshadowed his fate and Gabby's tragic murder.
Laundrie eerily appeared to share a number of images of skeleton-shaped ornaments covered in plants and foliage to a folder he called "things to burn off."
Another image, this time a sketch in pen, showed a human skull close up with a large crack visible down its forehead.
