Gabby Petito spent her final moments “gasping in pain,” according to her fiancé’s found diary.
Brian Laundrie’s notebook was recovered by the FBI at Myakkahatchee Creek Environmental Park when his remains were found, reports said.
On one page of the book, Laundrie claims Gabby was injured and “was shaking badly”.
The couple had been traveling across the United States when Gabby was reported missing on September 11 last year after her parents were unable to reach the couple, who videotaped their adventures.
Laundrie disappeared within days and on September 23, four days after Gabby’s strangled body was found, an arrest warrant was issued for him. His remains were discovered in October.
The sun reports that Laundrie wrote in the notebook found how Gabby had fallen into a creek while trying to return to the vehicle in the dark.
In the notebook, he wrote that he “found her panting my name, breathing heavily,” and said “she was freezing cold” and soaking wet.
He detailed carrying her to the car before tripping as his knees buckled and he realized he couldn’t carry her.
He wrote: “I made a fire and spooned it up so close to the heat, it was so thin, had been frozen for 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 bigger.
“Her feet hurt, her wrist hurt, but she was cold, she was shaking violently, while carrying them, she was making constant noises of pain, lying beside her, she said softly, vacillated between violent shaking, gasping in pain, and begging for an end to her pain .
“She fell asleep and I shook her awake because I was afraid that if she had a concussion, she shouldn’t close her eyes.
Gabby’s parents Joe and Nichole recently appeared in a Florida court where they are suing Chris and Roberta Laundrie – Brian’s parents – for allegedly withholding information about their daughter’s death.
The laundry’s attorney has moved that the lawsuit be dismissed.
