Full Note Written By Brian Laundrie Reveals Why He Murdered Gabby Petito

“I can’t live without you. I’ve lost every day we could’ve spent together. Every holiday. I’ll never get to play with [illegible] again. Never go hiking with TJ. I loved you more than anything. I can’t bear to look at our photos, to recall great times because it is why I cannot go on. When I close my eyes I will think of laying on the roof of the van, falling sleep to the sight of a meteor shower at the crystal geyser. I will always love you.”

In the recently released admission, Brian wrote of the events that took place before Petito was murdered, writing “this occurred as an unexpected tragedy.”

“Rushing back to our car trying to cross the streams of spread creek before it got too dark to see, [too] cold. I hear a splash and a scream. I could barely see, I couldn’t find her for a moment, shouted her name. I found her breathing heavily gasping my name, she was freezing cold. We had just came from the blazing hot National Parks in Utah.”

As the note continued, Brian wrote, “The temperature had dropped to freezing and she was soaking wet. I carried her as far as I could down the stream towards the car, stumbling exhausted in shock, when my knees buckled, and knew I couldn’t safely carry her. I started a fire and spooned her as close to the heat, she was so thin, had already been freezing too long.” 

“I couldn’t at the time realize that I should’ve started a fire first but I wanted her out of the cold back to the car. From where I started the fire, I had no idea how far the car might be. Only knew it was across the creek. 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 larger.

Her feet hurt, her wrist hurt but she was freezing, shaking violently, while carrying her she continually made sounds of pain, laying next to her she said little lapsing between violent shakes, gasping in pain, begging for an end to her pain. She would fall asleep and I would shake her awake fearing she shouldn’t close her eyes if she had a concussion.”

As Brian continued, he said he couldn’t tell the extent of Gabby’s injuries, “only that she was in extreme pain,” eventually writing that “I took her life.” He wrote that he 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 admission of guilt continued.

The note, which was discovered by the FBI after they located Laundrie’s body in October 2021, continued by Brian explaining why he “rushed home,” because he wanted to spend the time he had left with his family. Laundrie took his own life after returning back to Florida without Petito in their white Ford van.

He detailed that he thought about having “James or TJ kill me but I wouldn’t want them to spend time in jail over my mistake, even though I’m sure they would have liked to.” Brian then said he wasn’t taking his own life over the fear of the punishment that awaited him, but because “I can’t stand to live another day without her.”

After asking the world not to make things harder for his family, he wrote, “Gabby I’m sorry. “I have killed myself by this creek in the hopes that animals may tear me apart. That it may make some of her family happy. Please pick up all of my things. Gabby hated people who litter.”
