BRIAN Laundrie's notebook is being preserved by the FBI and it may shed light on his suicide and the Gabby Petito murder case, according to one expert.
Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe told CNN the journal could help to understand Laundrie's "motive" or his feelings about fiance Gabby Petito.
McCabe said a team of law enforcement experts can help to dry out their paper, "trying to recover the writing, the ink marks and finger prints."
He added: "In terms of understanding Laundrie’s motive, his feeling about Petito, maybe event any kind of notes or comments he may have made about the events—that notebook could shed a lot of light on those issues."
Laundrie's remains and personal items were found in Florida's Carlton Reserve on October 20 – a month after his fiance Gabby was found strangled to death at a Wyoming campsite.
Family attorney Steven Bertolino confirmed on Tuesday Brian himself with a bullet to the head.
"Chris and Roberta Laundrie have been informed that the cause of death was a gunshot wound to the head and the manner of death was suicide," Laundrie family attorney Steven Bertolino told The Sun on Tuesday.
"Chris and Roberta are still mourning the loss of their son and are hopeful that these findings bring closure to both families," he added.
The remains, and the articles belonging to Brian, were found in a stretch of land inside the 24,000-acre park that until recently had been submerged in floodwaters.
Internet sleuths have been long convinced that the 23-year-old’s journal will provide clues into his fiancée’s disappearance and death.
