Just-released images from the notebook of Brian Laundrie verifying his confession and detailing what happened before the death of Gabby Petito have now been made available to the public.


The Laundrie family’s attorney Steven Bertolino released the pictures Friday revealing the contents of Brian Laundrie’s notebook. In a statement from the attorney:


“Today the Petito family attorney, Patrick Reilly, and myself met with the FBI in Tampa to sort through and take possession of the personal items that belonged to Gabby and Brian. This was a previously agreed upon exchange to enable both the Petitos and the Laundries to receive what belonged to their respective children. As part of this return of property in FBI custody I was given Brian’s notebook. I would like to share with the public the note that the FBI alluded to when they said on January 21, 2022 that Brian claimed responsibility for the death of Gabby Petito.”



No other individuals other than Laundrie were directly involved in Petito’s death, the FBI’s investigation found.


The confession in the notebook reads:

“I ended her life, 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. But from the moment I decided, took away her pain, I knew I couldn’t go on without her.”
