During the massive manhunt for fugitive Brian Laundrie, who is the lone person of interest in Gabby Petito’s murder, at least 5 bodies have been discovered.

While the 23-year-old remains on the run more than a month after fleeing his family’s Florida home, the other deaths have been discovered in regions where officials are looking.

“How many bodies are just all willy nilly laying about?!” one particular person marveled in a Reddit thread, in accordance to the report. “Since starting the hunt for BL there have been what, 5 BODIES?”

One of the bodies was discovered in North Carolina’s Yadkin Valley Overlook amid reports that Laundrie was hiding on the market, prompting speculation that it could have been him. The FBI, however, acknowledged that it was not him, stating that “no evidence to connect” it to his case.

Investigators later identified the man as Josue Calderon, 33, who they claimed he had been stabbed to death.

Meanwhile, officials in Wyoming have expressed interest in the case after receiving information leading to the body of missing Texas father Robert Lowery, 46.

Lowery’s body was located near where Laundrie’s girlfriend, Long Island native Gabby Petito, was found dead on Sept. 17. Lowery was widely believed to have committed suicide.

The Sun said that all of the remains were discovered in regions where the couple had traveled during their cross-country tenting trip prior to Petito’s death in Wyoming.

As per Tassco, the most recent invention was of Sara Bayard, 55, which was located off a freeway in El Paso County, Colorado, and where Petito and Laundrie had shared Instagram photographs from throughout their travels.

The photos included one of Petitio at Monument Rocks on July 4 — the identical day Bayard was reported missing, KKTV said.

Petito and Laundrie continued to share images from their journey through Colorado, including Colorado Springs and the Great Sand Dunes National Park.

According to the Sun, interest in Petito’s case contributed to the discovery of a body in California’s Yucca Valley desert, where officials were looking for missing New Jersey chef Lauren “El” Cho, 30.

Cho had been missing since June 28, but when compared to Petito’s disappearance and homicide, her story sparked an increased interest.

Authorities have yet to confirm that the body found is that of Cho’s.

In addition, a body discovered close to a dumpster at a Walmart in Mobile, Alabama, on Sept. 20 aroused speculation that it was the fugitive — because it was discovered on the same day Laundrie was thought to be in the same city.

The body, however, was identified as that of a homeless guy who had no link to the crime, according to authorities.

Meanwhile, before Laundrie went on the run and Petito’s body was discovered, the bodies of a newlywed couple slain in Utah had been also briefly linked to the Long Island couple’s case.

The couple had been in Moab at the same time as Kylen Schulte, 24, and Crystal Turner, 38.

Schulte even worked at a food co-op where Laundrie was seen slapping Petito, leading to their now-infamous report to the cops.

Grand County Sheriff Steven White, on the other hand, later said that an inquiry indicated the circumstances were unrelated.
