Brian Laundrie’s shared chilling last cryptic Pinterest post about ‘burning out’ around time Gabby Petito went missing

BRIAN Laundrie shared a haunting last social media post about "burnout" around the time his fiancee Gabby Petito went missing.

He posted the book cover on Pinterest days before an alleged "flaming row" between the couple that is believed to be the last time she was seen alive.


Internet sleuths have been combing through Gabby and Brian's social media profiles for clues since the high-profile disappearance.

Some have pointed to a series of disturbing images on his Pinterest account including skeletons and a bloodied woman.

They were posted in a folder titled "Bleak" shortly before the last known sighting of Gabby in late August.

Laundrie's final post was the hand-drawn cover of a pamphlet called Burnt Out, a guide to coping with autistic burnout.

The condition – also called autistic fatigue – is described as "intense physical, mental or emotional exhaustion" suffered by adults with autism.

It can leave them unable to carry out everyday tasks and sometimes also leads to "outbursts of sadness or anger" and even suicidal thoughts, experts say.

Online sleuths say it could be significant in gauging Laundrie's state of mind, although it has not been previously suggested he was autistic.

One Twitter user said: "This seems important as it was posted around the same time #gabbypetitio went missing??!"

Laundrie's other posts including a chilling pencil sketch of a bloodied and bruised woman which some have compared to Gabby's body.

He also shared a haunting image of "My baby" written on a gravestone and a pic with the slogan: "Don't try to find me."

Other pics show creepy skeletons and skulls – which are claimed to foretell the fugitive's own decomposed remains being found in a swamp.

Laundrie, 23, was found dead in a Florida nature reserve last month after a five-week search involving the FBI local cops, and reality star Dog the Bounty Hunter.

The cause of death has not been revealed.

He has been named a person of interest in the murder of van life vlogger Gabby, 22, whose remains were found in remote Wyoming in September.

She was strangled after a road trip with Laundrie through national parks in Utah.
