Although Petito's parents have been notified, a full forensic examination of the body has not yet been completed, and the cause of death is still undetermined. That will be the job of forensic scientists and a medical examiner to determine—but the task becomes more challenging the longer a body is left exposed to time and the elements. Petito, who had been on a cross-country road trip with her boyfriend, Brian Laundrie, was last heard from in August and was declared missing Sept.
