Letter reveals that Brian Laundrie’s mother vowed to help “dispose of body”
A letter from Brian Laundrie’s mother revealed her willingness to aid her son in hiding his crime. Roberta, Laundries mother, wrote “burn after reading” on the front and was allegedly committed to helping her son dispose of a body.
The letter has now become the epicenter of a civil suit the Petito family has brought against the Laundrie family. The Petitos are suing the Laundries for emotional distress due to the lack of communication with the Petito family when their daughter had gone missing.
The Laundrie family has claimed that the letter is irrelevant to the case because it was given to their son before the tragically fatal disappearance of Petito. On Tuesday during the hearing, Defense Attorney P. Matthew Luka said, “This document pre-dates Brian and Gabby’s trip so its creation really doesn’t have any relation necessarily to the unfortunate events that unfolded thereafter.” He added, “I know that some of the wording that was used in the letter is unfortunate and might suggest that it has some connection but it doesn’t.”
So what does the letter say?
“If you’re in jail I will bake a cake with a file in it. If you need to dispose of a body. I will show up with a shovel and garbage bags,” Roberta wrote to her son in the letter.
“If you’re in jail I will bake a cake with a file in it. If you need to dispose of a body. I will show up with a shovel and garbage bags.”
This is the Roberta Laundrie “burn after reading” letter she gave to Brian Laundrie.

According to reports, Roberta said the verbiage she used in the letter, specifically about the disposal of a body, “were common enough in our circle of friends and family to describe who you could turn to in the most troubling times of your life.”
Moreover, one user on Twitter responded to the tweet of the letter, speculating that Roberta’s letter “sounds like a Jocasta complex,” specifically in response to a section of the letter where she wrote, “not even the unthinkable can get between us.”
The Laundrie family continues to claim that they believe they have done everything the correct way and that Gabby Petito’s disappearance was just as much a mystery to them as to the rest of the world. They claim that they had no knowledge of her disappearance and that the letter is purely a coincidence, with no connection to the fatal loss of Gabby Petito. According to reports, the trial will be held in August of this year.
