Gabby Petito's ex-fiance Brian Laundrie admitted killing her in a "suicide note" found near his remains, the FBI has said.

He had been evading police since strangling tragic Gabby in Wyoming during the pair's road trip last summer.

The huge find means the FBI is closing its investigation into the death of the 22-year-old.

Gabby, who died of blunt-force injuries to the head and strangulation, was found at the Spread Creek Dispersed Camping Area in the Grand Teton National Park on September 19.

Laundrie, 23, had gone missing two days before the grim discovery after telling his family he was going on a hike in the Carlton Reserve near their Florida home.

Although the FBI did not reveal exactly what the final note contained, a statement said: "On October 20, 2021, after water had receded from the area and the park was reopened, Mr. Bertolino notified law enforcement that Mr. Laundrie’s parents intended to return to the park to search.

"Law enforcement officers were present when Mr. Laundrie’s parents located an item in the park later determined to belong to Mr. Laundrie.

"Upon further search of the area, investigators found human remains later confirmed to be Mr. Laundrie, along with a backpack, notebook, and a revolver.

"A review of the notebook revealed written statements by Mr. Laundrie claiming responsibility for Ms. Petito’s death."
