Brian Laundrie's autopsy has come back inconclusive and his remains are now being transferred to an anthropologist, his family's lawyer says.

On Sunday, attorney Steven Bertolino told PEOPLE that "no manner or cause of death was determined, and the remains were sent to an anthropologist for further evaluation."

Bertolino also said that Laundrie's "remains will be cremated and there will be no funeral service."

The news comes two days after partial human remains were discovered in Myakkahatchee Creek Environmental Park — near Laundrie's last known location — and one day after dental records confirmed they belong to the 23-year-old fugitive.

Authorities have determined the 22-year-old Long Island, N.Y., woman died from strangulation while on a two-month-long, cross-country road trip with Laundrie.

A week after the Petito case began, the Laundrie family spoke to the FBI for the first time — but not to talk about Petito.
