Brian Laundrie’s mother might be in some very big trouble if Gabby Petito’s family lawyer can prove it.

Joseph Petito and Nichole Schmidt’s lawyer, Patrick Reilly, claims Roberta Laundrie urged her murderous son to “burn” a letter she wrote him after reading it.

This information was revealed during a February 14th court hearing.

The letter contained comments about “getting a shovel and some other things” and “helping him get out of prison.”

Gabby’s parents are suing Chris and Roberta Laundrie for emotional distress in connection with their daughter’s murder at the hands of Brian.

The envelope containing the letter said “burn after reading” according to Reilly.

He said the letter was recovered from Laundrie’s backpack when his body was found.

Gabby died in Bridger-Teton National Forest due to manual strangulation and being bludgeoned.

Laundrie admitted to killing Gabby in a series of notebook entries. He claimed it was the “merciful” thing to do after she allegedly suffered a bad injury while hiking.
