Months after his death by suicide, Brian Laundrie‘s confession to killing girlfriend Gabby Petito has been revealed in his own words, as the contents of his notebook recovered in October 2021 were released by Fox News on Friday, June 24.
“I ended her life,” he wrote, claiming that she had been injuring in a fall. “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.” The couple, who were on a cross-country road trip, were last seen together camping near Wyoming’s Grand Teton National Park in late August 2021.
Gabby’s body was found buried near their dispersed campsite on Sept. 19, 2021, and the Teton County Coroner’s office determined that she had died from manual strangulation. Their autopsy also revealed that she had been dead three to four weeks before her remains were discovered.
