Brian Laundrie remains: When to expect autopsy results from forensic anthropologist .
A forensic anthropologist analyzing Brian Laundrie's remains will likely have some answers regarding the deceased fugitive's manner, cause and time of death in two to three weeks, according to Laundrie family attorney Steven Bertolino. The Florida District 12 Medical Examiner conducted an initial autopsy after authorities recovered Laundrie's remains on Oct. 20, but results came back inconclusive. The remains were then sent to a forensic anthropologist. Forensic anthropologists analyze human remains, conduct DNA tests and look for any signs of weapon evidence to help determine how a person died.
