Brian Laundrie wanted to be ‘torn apart by beasts’ before ‘chewed’ bones found

The man suspected of killing Gabby Petito said he wanted to be 'torn apart by animals' before his remains were partially eaten by alligators, according to the FBI.

A notebook recovered from Brian Laundrie's body by federal agents at Myakkahatchee Creek Environmental Park in Florida showed the twisted death wish alongside claims about how Gabby's life was taken, according to reports.

YouTube star Gabby was found at the Spread Creek Dispersed Camping Area in the Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming on September 19 last year.

Her boyfriend Laundrie, 23, had already vanished by the time she was reported missing. He had told his family he was going on a hike in the Carlton Reserve near their Florida home.

His body was discovered as chewed skeletal remains on October 20, 2021, with an autopsy revealing he had died from self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head. It is thought alligators ate some of his body.

Now, excerpts the journal found in his backpack reveal his prior intention to take his own life, with one note reading: "I have killed myself by this creek in the hopes that animal may tear me apart.

"That it may make some of her family happy."

In the notes Laundrie also suggests that Gabby's death was a mercy killing, and claims he spent her last moments “gasping in pain”.

He stated that the influencer had injured herself during their hike and was “shaking violently”, writing : "I started a fire and spooned her as close to the heat, she was so thin, had already been freezing too long.

"When I pulled Gabby out of the water she couldn’t tell me what hurt. She had a small bump on her forehead that eventually got larger.

"Her feet hurt, her wrist hurt but she was freezing, shaking violently, while carrying her she continually made sounds of pain, laying next to her she said little lapsing between violent shakes, gasping in pain, begging for an end to her pain.

However, one former medical examiner speaking to Fox News said he doubted this version of events, as people do not shake when they enter the later stages of hypothermia.
