Brian Laundrie was sent letter by mom marked “burn after you read”, Gabby Petito family says after notebook confession

GABBY Petito’s family attorney has claimed that Roberta Laundrie sent a letter to her fugitive son marked “burn after you read” in the weeks before his death.

Fresh accusations have surfaced in the wake of the publication of Brian’s journal, which was found by the FBI at the Myakkahatchee Creek Environmental Park on October 20, 2021, among the skeleton remains of Brian. The journal was collected from the park.

The photographs in the notebook provide the impression that they reveal the method that Laundrie used to kill Gabby.

The terrible dying moments of the vlogger, which featured him “gasping in anguish,” were included in the excerpts, as was Laundrie’s description of what he perceived to be a “merciful” execution.

Pat Reilly, the lawyer who represents Gabby’s parents, Joe and Nichole, was quick to publish a statement in which she denounced the fact that the paper was made available to the general public.

At the same time, he lashed out at the attorney for the Laundrie family, Steven Bertolino, accusing him of selectively releasing information from the journal.

He told FOX3: “I find it hilarious that Mr Bertolino believes he was, in full openness, sharing this.

“Well, someone ought to question him why he doesn’t release the full notebook, but more importantly, someone ought to ask him why he doesn’t release Roberta Laundrie’s letter to her son,” the speaker said. “Well, someone ought to ask him why he doesn’t release the entire notebook.”

Reilly alleges in his statement that there is a copy of a letter that features some “severe details” of Petito’s murder and that this letter is in his possession.

In addition to this, he claims that Bertolino is concealing a copy of the purported letter from the general public while they have it in their possession.

When he didn’t have the letter on hand to cite, “I will just tell you that there are some fairly severe things that were mentioned in that letter,” he said.

Reilly asserted that the letter did not have a date and that she believes the memo was “written after Gabby was killed and before Brian took his own life.”

It is his contention that the alleged letter was discovered in the residence of the Laundrie family, but that it had been removed from the vehicle in which Brian and Gabby had been driving across the country.

He said, “By the way, I will tell you that on the envelope that contained the letter, the words ‘burn after you read this’ were written. I will tell you that as a side note.

The only other thing I’d like to mention is that the letter did contain an offer to help Brian out with a few other things.

Additionally, Reilly was quoted by Brian Entin of NewsNation as saying that “the notebook is not the only confession Brian left.”

Entin, NewsNation’s Senior National Correspondent, said on Friday: “He told me today there was a second confession on a ‘digital device’ and potentially a third confession in written form.

However, the FBI has informed Reilly that these confessions are distinct from those found in the notebook, which he claims he hasn’t seen yet.
