Petito was murdered by her fiancé Brian Laundrie while on a cross country road trip in 2021.

In the previously unreleased love letter, obtained by the New York Post, Gabby begged Brian to treat her better.

"Brian, You know how much I love you, so (and I’m writing this with love) just please stop crying and stop calling me names because we are a team and I’m here with you," Gabby wrote.

Gabby apologized for being "upset over a dumb piece of paper" before adding, "Yes, I can be a child sometimes, I know, but it’s cause you give me this energy and I just love you too much, like so much it hurt."

The context of Gabby's letter remains unclear.

As previously reported, Gabby's body was discovered in September 2021 in Wyoming's Grand Teton National Park. Her cause of death was determined to be blunt-force trauma and strangulation.

Upon the discovery of Gabby's body, a manhunt for Brian, the prime suspect, ensued. His remains were eventually discovered in October 2021 at a Florida nature preserve, where he took his own life.

The two-page letter was part of a 366-page document compiled by the FBI following a raid of the Laundrie home in the wake of Gabby's body being discovered in Wyoming's Grand Teton National Park. The file included Gabby's letter to Brian as well as photos, hand-written letters and drawings by Brian.

Brian's hand-written notes and drawings detailed manic episodes and a disturbing desire to kill himself.

The Petito's lawyer, Brain Stewart, said the letter further proved Brian "was clearly a narcissist and manipulator capable of violence."

The Petito's sued the Laundries in March 2022, claiming Brian's parents knew he killed their daughter and accused them of helping to conceal his crimes.
