- Police said Brian Laundrie’s notebook may be “salvageable.”
- It was found in an area that was previously underwater, and it’s not clear if anything is inside.
- A police spokesman told Fox News: “It appears it may be salvageable. That really is a question for FBI though.”
Police said a notebook belonging to Brian Laundrie may still be “salvageable” after it was found in an area that was previously underwater.
North Port Police Department spokesperson Josh Taylor was asked by Fox News what condition the notebook was in, and if anything in it was legible.
Taylor replied: “It appears it may be salvageable. That really is a question for FBI though.”
The FBI told Fox News it had “no new information” to share “at this time.”
The notebook, a backpack, and a dry bag belonging to Laundrie were found on October 20, near where Laundrie’s partial remains were found.
It is not clear what, if anything, was written or drawn in the notebook.
Steven Bertolino, the Laundrie family attorney, said he doesn’t know what was in the notebook, Fox News reported.
Laundrie’s remains were found at the Carlton Reserve in Florida, where he was reported missing last month.
His parents told authorities that he never came home after he went for a hike on September 13. He had returned alone from a trip with his fiancée, Gabby Petito, on September 1.
Petito was reported missing by her family on September 11. Her remains were found on September 19, and an autopsy report found that she died of strangulation.
Laundrie was the sole person of interest in her death.
