Brian Laundrie‘s mother wrote him a letter which promised to help him bury a body and escape from jail before he set off on his fateful road trip with his fiancée Gabby Petito.
Roberta Laundrie claims she wrote it prior to the start of the June 2021 road trip the couple was taking across the country that would end in Petito’s death two months later.
It sparked fury from Petito’s parents, who say it is evidence she had helped plot with her son to cover up their daughter’s brutal murder.
The undated letter, which Roberta instructed her son to ‘burn after reading’, revealed she offered to bake her son a cake with a file in it if he was sent to prison.
Petito, 22, was strangled by Brian in Wyoming and her remains were found in Grand Teton National Park on September 19 after her boyfriend killed her on or around August 28 before he took his life out of guilt.
Roberta also offered to help her son dispose of a corpse as evidence of her love for him.
A judge has not yet ruled on whether the letter could be admissible in a civil trial brought by Petito’s family against the Laundries over her death.
‘I just want you to remember I will always Love you and I know you will always Love me. You are my boy. Nothing can make me stop loving you, nothing will or could ever divide us,’ Roberta wrote in the letter.
‘No matter what we do, or where we go or what we say- we will always Love each other.’
‘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 bring show up with a shovel and garbage bags.’ The word ‘bring’ was crossed out in the sentence.
She added: ‘If you fly to the moon, I will be watching the skies for your re-entry. If you say you hate my guts, I’ll get new guts.
‘Remember that love is a verb not a noun. It’s not a thing, its not words it is actions. Watch people’s actions to know if they love you not their words.
‘Therefore I am certain that neither death nor Life, nor angels nor the ruling spirits, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers from above, nor powers from below, nothing in the entire created world can separate our love.
‘Neither hostile powers nor messengers of heaven nor monarchs of earth. Nothing has the power to separate us…’
Roberta also wrote: ‘Romans 8:38 (extended version!) (Nothing can separate us: “not hatred, not hunger, not homelessness, not threats, not even sin, not the thinkable or unthinkable can get between us.) Not time. Not miles and miles and miles.’
The letter was recently made public following a hearing in the civil suit brought by the Petitos against the Laundries.
But Roberta claimed the letter was written before her son’s trip with Petito and her attorney released a statement to say it was ‘in no way related to Gabby’.
‘The letter to Brian was written prior to Gabby and Brian leaving my home for their trip. Previously, I submitted an affidavit to the court for very limited purposes but that is not the whole story,’ she said.
