Gabby Petito’s mom is not buying what Brian Laundrie was trying to sell in his personal journal last year.
Referring to a case that made national headlines at the time, Laundrie admitted in this notebook to murdering Petito in the summer of 2021, writing many months ago:

When asked if she thought Laundrie’s words were “blatantly untrue,” Petito’s mother replied “100 percent.”
On June 27, two days after the notebook’s contents were made public, Schmidt tweeted, “Fed up” and shared a viral quote that read as follows:
“Narcissists rewrite history to escape accountability. You are not crazy.”
She elaborated on Today.
“That was his character, even in his last moments, he wanted to …read more
