Brian Laundrie's family will not have a funeral for their deceased son, CNN reported.

What's a very brief history here?

Laundrie's partial remains were discovered in a remote area of a Florida reserve on Wednesday after he was last seen on Sept. 13.

He disappeared just days after the family of his fiancé — Gabby Petito — reported her missing after he returned home from a trip without her.

Petito's remains were discovered in a Wyoming national forest in September. Authorities determined that she was murdered by strangulation.

Laundrie was the sole person of interest in Petito's murder.

What are the details?

On Sunday, family attorney Steven Bertolino told CNN that the family will cremate Laundrie's remains and will not hold a funeral service.

"Brian Laundrie's autopsy has not provided a manner or cause of death and his remains are now being transferred to an anthropologist," Bertolino said in a statement.

Claudia Kelly-Bazan, a producer for Fox News, added that Laundrie's family would receive his remains "when the time comes."

Kelly-Bazan tweeted, "The #Laundrie family attorney tells me there will be no funeral for #BrianLaundrie. [H]is body will be cremated, and given to his parents Chris & Roberta when the time comes."

Among Laundrie's skeletal remains were personal belongings, according to various reports, including a backpack and a personal notebook.

On Thursday, Bertolino reported that Laundrie was "upset" and "grieving" when he left the family home for the last time on Sept. 13.

He added, "These are parents that are suffering. Now, I understand that whatever happened or whatever didn't happen ... this is tragic for two families. And anybody with a child, and anybody with a sense of humanity can understand the frustration that both families feel on that point."
