Ever since we discovered Gabby Petito‘s household was suing the mother and father of Brian Laundrie, it appeared fairly open-and-shut to us.
Devoted followers of the case figured it was blatantly apparent Chris and Roberta Laundrie knew what their son had carried out — and hid it to guard him. However we discovered final week after the first hearing that authorized consultants didn’t appear to agree with that opinion.
For example, Tempo College regulation professor Bennett Gershman informed The Solar he thought the choose “appeared to be skeptical” of the Petitos’ argument — which he felt was a “reach.” However Gabby’s mother and father could have extra ammo than anybody realized!
Over the weekend, their legal professional Patrick Reilly responded to the discharge of Brian’s murder confession. He blasted Steven Bertolino as having solely launched some of the pocket book — strategically displaying just some proof to the press. Reilly claims there’s ANOTHER homicide confession “that does not entirely match up this particular version.” Whoa! Nearly like he wrote totally different drafts to see what caught? Horrifying if true.
However much more vital to the case was one other letter Reilly claimed to have seen — one from Roberta Laundrie to her son. He stated the letter, which was not within the pocket book however was taken by police from the Laundrie dwelling, contained “some pretty extreme things,” He didn’t say what however did say its contents — like about providing to assist if he went to jail — make it clear it seems to have been written “after Gabby was killed and before Brian took his life.”
If that is true, it proves the momma knew — simply what the Petitos are arguing! Want any further proof she was making an attempt to maintain that quiet? The letter allegedly was marked “burn after you read”!
One other authorized professional chatting with The Solar says this may very well be essential. Neama Rahmani , former US Legal professional and president of the West Coast Trial Attorneys, defined:
“The ‘burn after reading’ letter is important because it shows the Laundrie family’s [alleged] knowledge. They haven’t said anything publicly, all statements they’ve made have gone through their lawyer. This letter helps the Petitos show what the Laundries knew and when they knew it, and as they were putting statements out about looking for Gabby when they allegedly knew she was already dead. If the letter helps show that Brian’s parents knew he murdered Gabby that’s a very strong case.”
A “very strong case.” Hmm, seems to be like all that SVU tuition paid off in spite of everything?
Up to now the one protection towards the letter Bertolino has supplied relating to the letter is that the entire “burn after reading” factor was not meant to be taken critically however was a reference to the movie Burn After Studying. He informed WFLA:
“I do know it’s a movie and what she wrote on the cover of a letter to Brian many months before the trip had the title of the movie on there.”
Critically? She wrote the title of an unrelated Brad Pitt/George Clooney film on the quilt of a letter to her son. Actually?! Right now of yr? Right now of day? On this a part of the nation? Localized fully inside your kitchen?
Sorry, however the place did this man go to regulation college??
