Brian Laundrie – Confession Of Murder
Even though the main suspect died, his legacy lives on for his family. Authorities believe that after the crime, Brian might have been in his parents’ home. What they also suspected is that Brian drove to the Myakkahatchee Creek Environmental Park. Later, his mom fetched his mustang that he drove there. As a result, Gabby’s mom and dad believe that Christopher Laundrie and Roberta tried to cover up the crime. In April this year, they heard the news that Gabby’s parents would bring a lawsuit against them.
In the meantime, the news also arrived that Brian Laundrie wrote something in his notebook that seemed to convince authorities that he had killed Gabby. However, the exact words didn’t emerge until last week when Fox News cited some of the contents. Apparently, the outlet had sight of them after “attorneys representing the Petito-Schmidt and Laundrie families met at the FBI’s Tampa Field Office on Friday.”
Brian Laundrie – Netbook Copies – Details
Originally, the FBI said in a press release that Brian Laundrie was the only person responsible for Gabby Petito’s death. They came to that conclusion after they found a written confession in his notebook. However, they didn’t say exactly what the confession consisted of. Now Fox cited him as writing, “I ended her life,” adding, “I thought it was merciful, that it is what she wanted, but I see now all the mistakes I made. I panicked. I was in shock.”
According to Brian Laundrie, Gabby had fallen and injured herself when they were “in Wyoming.” So, he said, “From the moment I decided, took away her pain, I knew I couldn’t go on without her.” Actually, even if he killed her out of some misguided sort of mercy, it would have still amounted to murder. A photo of the notebook published by Fox, also showed that he wrote long messages about how much he missed Gabby.
