Brian Laundrie's Gabby Petito confession: Experts weigh in on admitted killer's claims, 'This is all lies'
In a handwritten note from Laundrie he explains that the murder of Gabby Petito was an act of mercy after she suffered multiple injuries.
Brian Laundrie framed his strangulation of Gabby Petito as an act of mercy and an "unexpected tragedy" in a shocking, handwritten confession discovered near his remains in October and just unveiled Friday. Experts moved quick to dissect his story.
Laundrie wrote how he "ended her life" because he "thought it was merciful, that it is what she wanted."
He claimed he and Petito were "trying to cross" a stream when he heard "a splash and a scream."
"I couldn’t find her for a moment, shouted her name. I found her breathing heavily gasping my name, she was freezing cold," he wrote. "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."
