Gabby Petito was an American woman murdered by her fiancé Brian Laundrie in 2021. The two were traveling across the U.S. in a van. Their trip was scheduled to last four months. However, she vanished in late August. While it is unclear exactly what happened to her body, the police have said that Laundrie admitted to killing Gabby Petito in a notebook.
Brian Laundrie admitted killing Gabby Petito in a notebook
A notebook written by Brian Laundrie, who admitted to killing Gabby Petito, has been discovered with his remains. The notebook was found in Florida, where Brian and Gabby were traveling. Laundry wrote about their trip, calling it a “van life” adventure.
According to the FBI, Laundrie confessed to killing Petito in writing before he committed suicide. He wrote about keeping Petito warm and awake before strangling her to death. However, he doesn’t describe any effort to get her medical attention or why he decided to kill her. Ultimately, Laundrie wrote that he had no choice but to kill her and that it was the only way he could move on with his life.
Laundry claimed he’d been hitchhiking.
In August, a woman named Miranda Baker picked up Brian Laundrie, who claimed he was hitchhiking and wanted a ride to Jackson, Wyoming. According to Baker, he claimed to have been hitchhiking for several days and was a little unnerved when she told him they were headed to the town. He requested to get out of the Jeep immediately, so she dropped him off at a local dam, less than a mile from the church.
Laurie’s family has hired an attorney to represent them. The family has resisted cooperating with the investigation. Baker, however, has named Laundrie a person of interest in the case. Baker’s video of the incident has been shared with law enforcement authorities.
Laundrie’s disappearance has no connection to the double-homicide case.
Utah police have ruled out any connection between Gabby Petito’s disappearance and a double-homicide case. Police say there is no connection between the Petito case and the double-homicide, which happened in mid-August. Investigators have not named a suspect in the case. However, they have said that Petito had gone to work in the local Moonflower organic co-op the night she disappeared.
It is unknown what possessed Petito to make her disappear, as she was last seen with her boyfriend, Brian Laundrie, in late August. The couple had made contact with each other in the days before her disappearance. The two were last seen in the area of Moab, Utah before they parted ways. The police did not file charges against the couple but investigated possible connections between the two cases.
Gabby Petito’s body was found in Wyoming.
A body found in Wyoming is believed to be that of missing Long Island native Gabby Petito. Petito had been missing for three to four weeks before her body was discovered. The cause of her death is unknown, but the local coroner has ruled her death a homicide. Her boyfriend, who is still unaccounted for, is also a person of interest in her disappearance. The investigation into Petito’s death is ongoing, and the FBI is determined to find the perpetrators.
The medical examiner is still processing the remains. The body was found near the white van Petito used to travel in. The two had last contacted family in late August from Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming.
Laundrie has confessed to killing Petito, according to his notebook. The journal also describes how Laundrie strangled Petito after she fell into a creek. However, Laundrie never mentioned calling 911 or seeking medical attention for her. He claimed that he could not go on without her after she died. The FBI revealed this confession in January. The FBI believes that Laundrie is guilty of the murder.
The family of Gabby Petito has reacted with outrage to Brian Laundrie’s notebook confession. The notebook was found near Gabby Petito’s body. It contained a note confessing to killing Gabby Petito. Laundry wrote that he thought he was being merciful when he killed her in August 2021. The notes were later recovered by a search team led by the FBI. The coroner ruled Gabby Petito’s death homicide by strangulation.
