Brian Laundrie’s notes called ‘rubbish’ as TWO MORE 'different' confessions set to surface
The Petito family's lawyer Pat Reilly said 'they are somewhat different' from the confession letter of Brian Laundrie in which he detailed killing Gabby Petito
The confession letter of Brian Laundrie in which detailed killing Gabby Petito has been deemed “rubbish” on a podcast. This comes as a lawyer representing the 22-year-old woman’s family claimed that the contents of two more "confessions", apparently recorded on a digital device, will be disclosed soon.
NewsNation's senior national correspondent Brian Entin, who has been following the Gabby's case since the beginning, spoke with Laura Richards on ‘Crime Analyst and Real Crime Profile’ podcast amidst Petito family's legal battle against the Laundries. Addressing the letter, Entin said, “I think most people immediately thought, 'This is a bunch of rubbish,’” before noting that he was sure that it would come out soon. “This thing is going to surface at some point," he remarked.

Entin then questioned the condition of the journal as she pointed out: “We had heard that it [the notebook] was in the water, that parts of it were understandable. It was interesting, you could read the whole thing for the most part. It was in really good condition.”
During the podcast, the newsperson also mentioned his visit to Grand Teton, close to where Petito’s remains were discovered on September 19, 2021. He said, “It's a very popular area with tourists. It's remote but there's definitely people driving in and out. The van was on the side of the dirt road then there's the creek bed and creek.”
He went on to explain, “It's probably a 10-minute walk from the van to where her body was discovered, granted you have to walk through a shallow creek, but it wasn't that far, you could get back to the van within 10 minutes. And the other thing - the cellphone service was really, really good there. I wasn't expecting that, but I had almost full service.”
Entin insisted, “The internet was very good, so I immediately didn't buy the story for that reason, just because in my mind I was going back mentally to being there. He probably could've seen the van from where he was, and the whole idea of a phone or just yelling out for people, again there were many campsites around there. He could've just started screaming. So it just didn't really add up to me.”
And, when Richards said that the letter is probably just one of three confessions by Brian, Entin said: “That was a surprise to me.” He also claimed that Petito’s lawyer, Pat Reilly, said to him that “one is on a digital device,” as he described, “I didn't get the impression that he had seen those yet. But then he also talked about this other letter from Roberta [Brian's mom] to Brian that said something like 'Burn after you read this' on the outside. He [Reilly] didn't want to get into what the letter said. He basically said it's going to be very interesting when that is eventually made public.”
The podcast also reportedly featured an interview between Entin and Reilly in which the victim's family attorney was heard saying, “There's at least one possible, two other confessions. We don't have them at this point. We just have this one, but my understanding is one on a digital device of some kind, and there may be another writing. From what we were told they are somewhat different.”

While Richards added on her show, “The FBI handed that evidence over to the Laundrie attorney, Steve Bertolino and Pat Reilly was also present. Of course we need to see the 3 letters and compare them but if they are different then that would indicate deception and that there was a strategy in place to deceive.”
