As we all followed the missing Gabby Petito case, there were all sorts of rumors that her boyfriend Brian Laundrie was the only one who knew where she was and what had happened to her. There were many red flags that even Utah cops ignored about their relationship and the domestic violence it entailed. Some of Brian’s notebooks were found with his remains and we were all shocked to hear what was released to the public last week.
True Crime: The Notebook Confessions
Laundrie’s handwritten confessions were released to the public last week. Now there are many experts who have started to really look into what he wrote in his notebooks. He wrote that Gabby was “trembling violently” and was “freezing cold,” and he claimed that she had some injuries before he decided to kill her.
True Crime: Brian Laundrie’s Notebook Confession and What the Experts Say
For all the research that went into his notebook confessions, it appears he also wrote eight pages of notes the day before he decided to shoot himself. On one of those pages, he wrote that he “found it gracious that it was what she wanted” and therefore “ended her life.”
In part of the notebook he wrote about how they were trying to cross a creek and he heard her fall into it. He wrote: “I couldn’t find her for a moment, calling her name. I found her breathing heavily, panting my name, freezing cold. When I pulled Gabby out of the water, she couldn’t tell me what hurt. She had a small bump on her forehead that eventually got bigger. Her feet ached, her wrist ached, but she was cold, she was shaking violently, while carrying her, she was making constant noises of pain, lying beside her, she said little, vacillated between violent tremors, gasping with pain, and begging for an end to her Pains. I don’t know the extent of Gabby’s injuries. Just that she was in extreme pain.”
Many experts who have started analyzing these sites have pointed out that even if he didn’t know what her injuries were, it didn’t give him the right to take her life. She could easily have been taken to the hospital, or the couple could have waited for park rangers or other hikers to help them.
This was not an “unexpected tragedy” as he describes it. She wasn’t asking for the end of her life, she just wanted someone or something to ease the pain as they were walking when she fell.
As one criminal profiler, John Kelly, pointed out: “He tiptoed around the confession. He wanted to serve it up as a mercy killing. That’s what annoys me more than anything.”
