In Letter, Gabby Petito Asked Boyfriend Who Later Killed Her To Stop Calling Her Names

Gabby Petito wrote a letter to the abusive boyfriend who would later kill her, asking that he stop calling her names, documents released by the FBI in the 2021 murder case show.

Petito in the letter, part of more than 350 pages of documents released by the FBI, tells Brian Laundrie that they are supposed to be a team.

“Just please stop crying and stop calling me names because we’re a team and I’m here with you,” Petito, who was 22 years old when Laundrie killed her and left her body in Wyoming, said in the handwritten letter. A date for the letter was not evident.

Laundrie, Petito’s fiancé, killed her while the two were on a cross-country trip in the summer of 2021, which she documented on YouTube and Instagram.

Attorneys who represented the Petito and Laundrie families in the past could not immediately be reached for comment early Tuesday morning on the documents released by the FBI.

A search and the mystery of what happened to her received widespread attention after Laundrie returned to his Florida home with the van they were in — without her.
