Roberta Laundrie’s letter has been the subject of much speculation in the case of Gabby Petito, but both sides have confirmed that it does not contain a date and that it has nothing to do with Petito. Reilly, one of Petito’s attorneys, filed for the letter to be part of the discovery process in the lawsuit against the Laundries and their attorney Bertolino.
n her affidavit filed with Sarasota County Circuit Court, Roberta Laundrie explained that she wrote the letter to her son Brian during a difficult period in their relationship in May 2021 before Brian and Gabby left Florida for New York. She stated that she wrote it as an attempt to connect with Brian and repair their relationship by reminding him how much she loved him.
