What does Brian Laundrie’s notebook say?
Last week, authorities discovered a notebook, backpack and a dry bag with other items of Laundrie’s in an area that had previously been underwater. Laundrie’s remains were found later that same day, according to Fox News.
- Laundrie was wanted as a person of interest in the disappearance and homicide of Petito, a 22-year-old woman who went missing in late summer 2021.
Eyes have turned to Laundrie’s notebook for answers on what happened to him at the Myakkahatchee Creek Environmental Park. Experts said it may be the key to understanding what happened to him and to Petito.
- “It appears it may be salvageable. That really is a question for FBI though,” North Port Police Department Public Information Officer Josh Taylor told Fox News Digital.
