There won't be a funeral for Brian Laundrie, a producer said the Laundrie family's attorney told her days after Laundrie's remains were discovered at a Florida nature reserve.
Claudia Kelly-Bazan, a producer at Fox News, tweeted that the Laundrie family's attorney had informed her that there were no plans for a funeral, and that Laundrie's body would be cremated and given to his parents.

The 23-year-old's remains were found at the 25,000-acre Carlton Reserve, where he was reported missing last month, the FBI said on October 21. His parents, Chris and Roberta Laundrie, told authorities that Laundrie went for a hike on September 13 and never returned home.
He was the sole person of interest in the killing of his fiancée, Gabby Petito, who was reported missing by her family on September 11. The couple had been on a cross-country road trip. Laundrie returned to his parents' home in Florida without Petito on September 1.
Petito's remains were found on September 19, and an autopsy report found that she died of strangulation between August 22 and 29.
The Laundrie family is represented by Steven Bertolino, who told Insider's Natalie Musumeci on Friday that Laundrie's remains had been sent to a forensic anthropologist. A cause of death is unknown.
