Brian Laundrie update – Notebook pages 'may reveal truth behind Gabby Petito murder' if released by police

INTERNET sleuths are speculating that Brian Laundrie's journal will provide clues into Gabby Petito's mysterious death.

Criminologist Casey Jordan said a notebook “pointed to the possibility” of a suicide note, 7News reports. The contents inside the notebook remain unknown.

Jordan told CNN: “That really raises the question if indeed this is Brian Laundrie and if he died by his own hand, did he take the time out to write out a note of explanation, maybe even regret?

Officials found Brian's items, which included a notebook and backpack, when they searched the Carlton Reserve.

Remains discovered at the Myakkahatchee Creek Environmental Park close to the items on October 20 have been identified as Brian's.

    SLEUTHS CLAIM BRIAN 'CHASED' GABBY BEFORE STRANGLING HER

    Some web sleuths claim that Brian Laundrie “chased” his fiancée Gabby Petito before strangling her in the wilderness after an alleged fight in a restaurant.

    Gabby is believed to have been last seen alive with her fiancé at the Merry Piglets Tex-Mex café in Jackson, Wyoming on August 27.

    One Facebook sleuth posted: “How did Gabby’s remains end up where they did? I was wondering if he was chasing her to that spot after getting into a battle royale after Merry Piglets."

    “Some people said they camped there. Why would they pick that as a camping spot?”

    CONSPIRACIES ABOUT BRIAN OVERTAKE INTERNET

    Online sleuths are claiming that Brian Laundrie is in fact still alive and is now living as a cop, among other wild conspiracies pushed in the wake of his skeletal remains being found.

    In one TikTok video, someone posted a blurry photo showing a police officer with a resemblance close to Laundrie.

    The man, seen in the photo wearing a baseball cap and glasses, was seen walking next to Laundrie’s father Chris on October 7.

    The user, posting under the name conspiracyteacrimetimeee, then captioned the TikTok: “Brian Laundrie’s father seen laughing with officer who looks exactly like his son while on their search in Carlton Reserve.”

    OVERDOSE?

    Some web sleuths now claim Brian Laundrie used Gabby Petito’s water bottle to mix a cocktail of drugs before he overdosed.

    Hikers found a Nalgene water bottle thought to match one that belonged to Gabby days after cops found bone fragments in the Florida wilderness.

    One web sleuth said: “I don’t know why people assume the water bottle is not important. Maybe it contained an overdose of drugs mixed with water as his method of death.”

    Another commented: “I think it’s important to Gabby’s case as in: it was her bottle, and Brian took it, why?"

    "He knew she wouldn’t need it anymore. He knew she was dead.”

    WEB SLEUTHS THINK GUN IS CONNECTED TO GABBY’S MURDER

    Brian Laundrie web sleuths are afraid a gun found weighted down in the water by a fisherman could be connected to Gabby Petito’s murder.

    Cops were called out to Foto De Soto Park, Florida, in October after Christopher Sacco, 35, dredged out the black revolver, which was wrapped in a bag and secured to a rock with red and white twine, according to the Tampa Bay Times.

    Sacco and his friend had been fishing near a playground area at the park which Laundrie stayed at with his family back on September 6 and 7.

    The weapon is now with Pinellas Country Sheriff’s Office.

    The find sent sleuths on Twitter ablaze with theories that the weapon could have been used to kill Petito, or that someone had used it to kill Laundrie, with one user writing, “Fisherman finds weighted down the gun in Fort De Soto #BrianLaundrie.”

    WHEN DID FLORIDA COPS LEARN BRIAN LAUNDRIE WAS MISSING?

    Police officers in Florida were unaware Brian Laundrie was missing until four days after he vanished despite his family’s lawyer insisting he contacted the FBI immediately.

    The timeline of Laundrie‘s disappearance was thrust back into the spotlight this week after his remains were discovered at the Carlton Reserve, one month after his fiancee Gabby Petito‘s body was found in Wyoming.

    Laundrie family attorney Steve Bertolino was asked to clarify the timeline after questions were reignited by speculation over how and when Laundrie died.

    Laundrie was reported missing to the Northport Police Department by his parents Chris and Roberta on September 17.

    It later emerged that the couple last saw their son on September 13, when they said he set out for a solo hiking trip.

    BERTOLINO: LAUNDRIE WAS ‘UPSET’ AND ‘DISTRESSED’

    Steven Bertolino said he had multiple conversations with Brian, Chris, and Roberta on September 12th and 13th – both one-on-one and all together.

    Bertolino said Laundrie was “upset” and “distressed” when he set out for his solo hike but did not appear suicidal.

    “I can tell you Brian was alert, he was coherent, when he was speaking with me. I had no inclination or indication that he would hurt himself,” he said

    Bertolino refused to answer whether Laundrie knew Gabby was dead. Asked if Laundrie killed Gabby, the attorney replied: “You know, that’s a tough question to answer, other than no, not to my knowledge.

    “I can’t say that he did or didn’t, I’m sure the FBI may be able to fill those answers in at a different time.”

    BRIAN WAS ‘CHARMING’ POLICE

    Dr Orna Guralnik, a Clinical Psychologist and Psychoanalyst from New York, exclusively told The Sun that Laundrie’s behavior with the cops revealed he “knew how to charm the police.”

    “Sociopaths are good at reading a certain aspect of their environment and creating a certain kind of ease,” Dr Guralnik said.

    “They create a certain vibe that helps them get away with whatever they need to get away with.”

    BRIAN’S FAMILY ‘MAY NEVER SPEAK’ ABOUT SON

    Brian Laundrie’s parents may never tell their side of the story, Steven Bertolino said to CNN’s Chris Cuomo.

    Cuomo asked the reason behind the family’s decision not to speak with authorities or Gabby Petito’s family.

    “I can tell you the reason,” Bertolino said. “I told them not to.”

    Cuomo then asked if the Laundries will “explain the situation” at a later date.

    “It may come out in the future, it may not,” said Bertolino.

    ‘BOMBARDED WITH VIOLENT IMAGES’

    “Then there can be people in the throes of various mental illnesses that can be kind of bombarded with violent images that are representations of how they feel inside,” Dr Guralnik added.

    Laundrie shared numerous art pieces that featured blood, knives, and violence to social media.

    ‘SOCIOPATHS WILL ACT ON VIOLENT IMAGES’

    Dr Orna Guralnik, a Clinical Psychologist and Psychoanalyst from New York, said “sociopaths will act on violent images.”

    She added: “Many people translate difficult feelings that they have inside to violent images. Many people translate bad feelings into violent motifs.”

    SLEUTHS BELIEVE BRIAN WANTED TO CONVINCE PEOPLE HE WAS ‘INSANE’

    Sleuths on the internet wildly claim that Brian Laundrie tried to convince the world he was “clinically insane” with his artwork and chilling messages.

    Online “detectives” dug up a series of dark comic book drawings the 23-year-old made and had a lot to say about them.

    One artwork posted to his Instagram page in July 2020 shows a skeleton that appears to have blood gushing from it, with the figure’s arms stretched outwards and the character seemingly screaming.

    One sleuth claimed: “He’s just trying to make everyone he’s clinically insane. Truly he’s just a psychopath.”

    Another posted: “This is so creepy, what a freak.”

    ‘LUDICROUS’ CLAIMS

    The Laundrie’s attorney, Steven Bertolino, spoke with News Nation Now to express his anger at the accusations that the Laundrie’s planted their son’s remains.

    “Do you really think the Laundries had skeletal remains of their son, you know, in a plastic bag and brought them to present to the [Carlton Reserve]?” he said.

    “Do you realize how ludicrous that is, how aggravating, how maddening it is to even hear those things?”

    CHRIS LAUNDRIE FOUND SON’S ITEMS ‘WITHIN MINUTES’

    Chris Laundrie found his son’s items within minutes after he and his wife Roberta began cooperating with police to find their fugitive son.

    The Laundrie family lawyer Steven Bertolino told reporters that Brian’s parents had previously told authorities to search the area where they believed Brian to be – and where they found his belongings.

    “Chris and Roberta Laundrie were at the reserve earlier today when human remains and some of Brian’s possessions were located in an area where they had initially advised law enforcement that Brian may be,” Bertolino said.

    PREVIOUS RUMORS ABOUT LAUNDRIE CASE

    Rumors have circulated this case since Petito’s disappearance and the subsequent discovery of her remains, and once again following Laundrie’s evading of police as the nation went on a manhunt for the fugitive.

    Previous theories regarding Laundrie’s whereabouts before his remains were discovered claimed that he was hiding in a bunker and sending his parents letters with code words to evade police.
