BRIAN Laundrie wrote “please do not make life harder for my parents” in his notebook that was found after he died.
“Please do not make life harder for my family,” the notebook read.
“They lost a son and a daughter and a daughter – the most wonderful girl in the world. Gabby I’m sorry.”
He earlier wrote: “I am sorry to my family. This is a shock to them as well [作为] a terrible grief (原文如此).”
“I ended her life,” Laundrie penned in the notepad obtained by 福克斯新闻.
“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.
“From the moment I decided, took away her pain, I knew I couldn’t go on without her,” 他继续.
The Petito family is suing the Laundrie family after authorities claimed that Brian Laundrie was responsible for the vlogger’s death.
The Petitio family is alleging that Laundrie ‘s parents, Chris and Roberta, knew that Gabby Petitio was dead and chose not to do anything.
The lawyer for the Laundrie family, Steven Bertolino, filed a motion to have the case dismissed, but the court trial is currently underway in Sarasota County, 佛罗里达.
Bertolino recently spoke with NewsNation的 “Banfield” about the possible regrets about the legal advice he gave to his clients.
“Because they haven’t been in trouble so far … do you have any regrets? Do you think you should have had them talk to the media or perhaps seem a little more human?,” NewsNation host Brian Entin asked the lawyer.
“Even though you protected them legally, do you think you made any mistakes along the way since now they are, in many ways, it seems hated by the world?”
Bertolino responded by saying that the whole ordeal has been emotional for his clients and himself.
“你知道, hated is one word, vilified is another … It’s emotional for me, it’s emotional for Chris and Roberta because we are friends, they did lose a child,” 贝托利诺说.
“They lost a young man that I knew since he was born and yeah, that’s upsetting. I did everything the right way. We have no regrets.”
