“Brian, you know how much I love you, so (and I write this with love) just stop crying and don’t call me names because we are a team and I am here with you,” Petito wrote in the letter, which is undated. Referring to an earlier argument between them, she said she was sorry that she “got upset over a stupid piece of paper.”

“Yes, I know I can be a baby sometimes, but that’s because you give me this energy and I just love you too much it hurts,” she wrote. “So your pain is killing me. I don’t want to be negative, but I’m frustrated that I can’t do anything more.

It is unclear what caused Laundrie’s pain. Petito also said he would work with him on the van when he returned from New York. It’s the same van they were in during their trip. “We can work on the van together and now it is OUR dreams,” Petito wrote.

“So I hope you understand when I’m sad because I love you too much,” she added. “Now stop crying!!! And come home and tell me you love me with a big hug.

Petito eventually went missing, and her body was found days later and abandoned at a campground in Wyoming. Laundrie was accused of murdering her. A few days later, Laundrie was also found dead, shortly after committing suicide.
