I mean, it is illegal to do it and there’s going to be a response,” DeSantis told a news conference Wednesday according to WESH TV News.
The body of Brian Laundrie was discovered in Florida's Carlton Reserve on October 20, according to NBC News. Laundrie's remains were "skeletal," and the confirmation that authorities needed to confirm it was him came by way of his dental records. Laundrie had gone missing from his parent's home in Florida in mid-September, and, after he used an unauthorized credit card, a warrant for his arrest was issued, thus making him a fugitive. Laundrie was also a person of interest in the death of his fiancee, Gabby Petito. The two had been on a cross-country road trip when Laundrie arrived back home in Florida on September 1 without her. Petito's parents reported her missing on September 11, and her body was found in Wyoming on September 19. Petito's death was ruled a homicide and a Wyoming coroner was able to confirm her cause of death as strangulation, according to CNN.
