Brian Laundrie’s mother has broken her silence.

Roberta Laundrie has been under a magnifying glass in recent months due to a letter she wrote to her son prior to Gabby Petito’s murder.

The letter reportedly contained information about buying a shovel, helping bury the body and was titled “Burn after reading.”

Roberta is defending herself in a court of law and said the letter was all fun and games.

Roberta wrote a letter to the court claiming the letter was written months before Gabby and Brian set off on their cross-country road trip in the summer of 2021.

“Although I do not know the exact date I wrote the letter, I do know that I wrote it and gave it to Brian before Brian and Gabby left Florida for New York which was on June 2, 2021.

Gabby’s body was discovered on September 19th and her parents believe she was killed towards the end of August.

“In short, I was trying to connect with Brian and repair our relationship as he was planning to leave home – and I had hoped this letter would remind him how much I loved him,” Roberta claimed.

“The purpose of the letter was to reach out to Brian while he and I were experiencing a difficult period in our relationship.”
