THE SEARCH for Brian Laundrie may have ended, but the internet still has a lot to say about the case.
Recently, a suicide note alleged to be written by Brian Laundrie has been circulating across social media.
What does the alleged 'suicide note' say?
Following the discovery of Brian Laundrie's remains on Wednesday, October 20, 2021 at Myakkahatchee Creek Environmental Park, near the Carlton Reserve in Florida, the internet has had a field day with theories on how and when the former fugitive died.
Many believe it was death by suicide, while others have the idea that Laundrie is still alive and on the run.
Most recently, a suicide note has been circulating online, alleged to be written by Laundrie himself. However, there is no proof to where the note came from, or as to who actually wrote it.
The note found online says:
"I just wanted to say that I'm sorry for everything that has happened. I never intended for any of this.
"Gabby and I were truly in love and I would give anything for her to still be here.
"I know that no one will understand that things simply got out of control.
"The strain of our relationship was more than I could bear.
"I should have known to stay home after what happened… everything was already a disaster at that point but something made me return.
"Once Gabby was gone forever I realized that I was too.
"Please forgive me for all that has happened and everything I have put everyone through.
"I was too ashamed to tell Gabby's family what happened to her. I was too ashamed to tell anyone.
"I hope someday people can understand what really happened.
"Until we meet again someday I love you forever… B."
While police have confirmed the remains found at the reserve to be Laundrie's, the autopsy showed the cause of death to be inconclusive.
When was Brian Laundrie found?
The search for Laundrie ended on Wednesday, October 20, 2021. The next day, dental records proved the remains found in the Carlton Reserve belonged to those of Laundrie.
Along with skeletal remains, a backpack was found with a notebook inside.
According to experts, the state of his body at the time of discovery may mean his cause of death will never be determined.
Tom Joyce, a retired NYPD commander, shared his thoughts on the skeletal remains.
"If the remains are skeletal, that means the tissue has been pulled away from the bones," he said. "Most likely by alligators, crabs, fish and stuff like that.
"That's what it sounds like to me because it's definitely not long enough time for it to go naturally.
"If it's only a three to four week period and there are only skeletal remains and very limited tissue remaining, I would have to say there's a lot of activity that pulls all the skin and flesh and muscle and stuff away."
When did Brian Laundrie go missing?
Brian Laundrie was officially reported missing by his parents on September 17, 2021.
However, it was later made available that the last time his parents saw him was actually September 13.
On the 15th of September, Laundrie was officially named a person of interest in the case of Gabby Petito, who was still missing at the time.
A few days later, on September 19, police revealed that they found a body in Grand Teton National Park that they believed belonged to Gabby Petito. A full forensic identification later proved the body to be hers.
The search for Laundrie continued for over a month.
Dog the Bounty Hunter joined the search for Brian at the end of September, and recently came forward to say he believes Gabby's family will finally get closure.
