Brian Laundrie's art spooks sleuths as it shows heads with no bodies after autopsy found Gabby Petito was strangled

BRIAN Laundrie’s nightmarish artwork has spooked internet sleuths as his drawings show heads without bodies.

A picture posted on Laundrie’s Instagram page on July 15, 2020, appears to show people fighting and wrestling with some seemingly armed with clubs.

The post was captioned: “How man treats one another.”

One commentator wrote: “How Brian treated Gabby might be a more fitting caption. Not a nice caption but an accurate one.”

Another added: “All violent and dark ‘art’.”

A third said: “Creepy af.”

In another picture of his artwork posted the same day five skeletons armed with scythes surround a flock of sheep with the caption “Grim Reaper leading sheep to the slaughter, and a mousetrap”.

Earlier this week Teton County Coroner Brent Blue confirmed in the autopsy report Gabby Petito died by "strangulation / throttling".

On September 23, the FBI Denver Field Office issued an arrest warrant for Laundrie. 

He is not currently considered a suspect in Petito's murder but is considered a “person of interest.”

Two days later, a warrant was issued for Laundrie's arrest after investigators claimed he had "used unauthorized debit cards after Gabby Petito's death."

The doctor appeared during a Tuesday press conference to share the findings in the case where he even mentioned that Gabby was strangled and left in the wilderness of Bridger-Teton National Forest for four weeks before her remains were found on September 19.

The manner of her death was ruled a homicide, but the cause of death from the autopsy report had been withheld for weeks.

During the press conference, Dr Brent Blue described Gabby as a victim of domestic violence but refused to comment on whether her 23-year-old missing ex-fiancé Brian Laundrie is a suspect.

Federal and local Florida law enforcement have for more than four weeks been searching for Laundrie in the 25,000-acre Carlton Reserve based in Venice, Florida.


In other developments in the case, Gabby Petito’s parents have branded Laundrie a “coward” and slammed his parents.

In an interview with Australian TV show 60 Minutes due to air October 17, Gabby’s dad, Joe Petito, said: "If they do know something and they're withholding that and they don't want to let us know, it's cruel."

Her mom Nicole Schmidt added: "Their actions don't show that their son is missing. It shows that they're just comfortable and they probably know where he is."

A private investigator has also revealed Laundrie is on a list of potential suspects in a separate murder he is probing. 

Jason Jensen has linked 23-year-old Laundrie to a case he has taken on involving a murdered newlywed couple who went missing on August 13 in the La Sal Mountains.

Meanwhile, Dog the Bounty Hunter has revealed what he was going to say to Brian Laundrie's family when he first knocked on their door.

"I know what it is to have a son in jail, and I know every time they hear an ambulance there or siren, we can't tell the difference," Dog told The Sun in an exclusive interview.

"I know a lot of things that, over the 40 years of experience I have catching criminals, that I know what to tell a parent.

"Fifty to 70 percent of the parents don't tell me where they're at," Dog continued.

"They will sit right there and lie to me like crazy. After I capture their son or daughter and then they say, 'Dog, we knew.'

"And I say, 'I know.' And then they say, 'What do you expect? It's my child."
