ONLINE sleuths have claimed that Gabby Petito's fiancé Brian Laundrie left a hidden note at home before he shot himself.
An autopsy on Laundrie confirmed that the 23-year-old had died by suicide after his remains were found in the wilderness in Florida.
Eight days after Gabby was last seen alive, Laundrie returned to his home in Florida without his fiancée.
While at home he hired an attorney and refused to cooperate with police.
But on September 13, Laundrie's parents claimed their son had left home to go hiking in Carlton Reserve in Florida.
It was the last time they claimed to have seen him.
And now armchair detectives believe that Laundrie left a note hidden for his parents before vanishing.
One sleuth claimed: "I think he possibly would have left a note at home and his parents have it.
"They would most likely conceal it so that they would not be liable for knowing any of his plans."
Another agreed, replying: "No doubt they knew what was going on.
"He didn't just go 'missing'."
There has been a number of wild claims made about Laundrie's suicide including that his parents "hid a gun under a flowerbed" in their backyard.
Sleuths speculated that Laundrie's parents Chris and Roberta hid a gun under their flowerbed. There is no evidence to support the claims.
"I'm going with it was assisted suicide… help from the perfect parents…" read one post on the Gabby Petito ~ Vanished Discussion Facebook group, which has more than 50,000 members.
"Maybe they'll find the gun in those flower beds," continued the post.
The Laundrie's attorney Steven Bertolino did not reveal where the gun Brian used to kill himself came from or if it has been located by police.
When asked about the weapon used by Brian, he told The Sun: "Not certain."
Online sleuths obsessed with the case have long theorized about the flowerbed in the Laundries' backyard.
They wildly speculated that Gabby Petito's fiancé was hiding in a Doomsday bunker under the flower bed after "drone footage appeared to show suspicious movements".
Others also wildly claimed they spotted a water bottle in his parents' garden that matched one found near his remains.
