While authorities have found nothing so far, they hope that Brian Laundrie is running out of room to hide with every passing moment.

On Tuesday, a Teton County, Wyoming coroner identified remains found on Sept. 19 as Gabrielle Venora Petito’s, Laundrie’s fiancée. The manner of death was also determined to be homicide, FBI Denver tweeted. The exact cause of death remains pending.

Petito was reported missing by her family on Aug. 31. Laundrie returned home to North Port without her and has refused to speak to law enforcement.

Crews used infrared cameras to keep an eye on the Carlton Reserve in Sarasota County overnight, where Laundrie reportedly went last week before he was also reported missing by his family three days later.
