BRIAN LAUNDRIE’S mother told him she would help him dispose of a body in an eerie letter that has now been released.
Gabby Petito‘s family earned another legal victory over the Laundries after a judge ruled that Roberta Laundrie’s “burn after reading” letter could be released to them.
In the undated note, Roberta wrote that “nothing” could make her stop loving her son, who strangled his fiancee to death during their van-life road trip in the summer of 2021.
“If you’re in jail, I will bake a cake with a file in it,” Roberta scrawled in pen. “I will show up with a shovel and garbage bags.”
Gabby’s parents believe Roberta wrote the note around the time of their daughter’s disappearance.
However, Roberta stated that she wrote the note “prior to Gabby and Brian leaving my home for their trip.”
In a text message shared by News Nation correspondent, Brian Entin, Roberta asked for the letter to be read in its entirety now that it has been released.
“Understand that the letter contains other phases besides those highlighted by Pat Reilly for sensationalism and to bolster his case,” she said.
“I truly loved my son, and simply wanted to convey to him how much he meant to me and how much I loved him.
“I am sure people use phrases all the time to express to their loved ones the depths of their love. Although I chose words that I thought would be impactful with Brian given our relationship, the letter was in no way related to Gabby.”
The Laundries’ lawyer Matt Luka previously claimed that the letter “has no relevance to the cause of action” behind the Petitos’ civil suit.
The letter ends with Roberta warning her son to “watch people’s actions to know if they love you – not their words.”
She also writes a bible verse, writing that nothing could separate her and Brian.
“Nothing can separate us: not hatred, not hunger, not homelessness, not threats, not even sin, not the thinkable or unthinkable can get between us.”
