BRIAN Laundrie’s parents have said they won’t be having a regular funeral when it comes to burying their son’s final remains.
The 23-year-old’s parents said they are cremating their son, whose remains of mostly skull and bone were found last week as a more than month-long manhunt for the fugitive in the wake of fiance Gabby Petito’s death.

Family attorney Steven Bertolino confirmed to the New York Post on Monday that the family will be opting to cremate their son’s remains, which have been reduced to bones after days or even weeks of decay.
Bertolino added the family has no plans about what will be done about Laundrie’s ashes, or if they will even be returned to the family.
Authorities found Laundrie’s remains in the Carlton Reserve last week after over a month-long manhunt for the only person of interest named in the death and disappearance of fiance Petito.
His remains were found near a swampy area in the reserve where is known to have visited in the past, and have since made their way to an anthropologist for “further evaluation.”
Bertolino added that the family has stayed in the dark regarding their son’s remains and belongings, saying neither local authorities or the FBI have reached out to them.
“No contact with LE [law enforcement] other than being informed of positive ID,” Bertolino told the Post.
Laundrie’s parents joined authorities in the hunt on Wednesday only to find their 23-year-old son’s belongings within minutes of walking in.
