KEY POINTS

  • Laundrie family attorney said they have cut a deal with Petito's family
  • Laundrie's parents were reportedly trying to reclaim items found near his body
  • The Petito family had also requested authorities to obtain their daughter's belongings

Gabby Petito's family has reportedly met the FBI in Tampa, Florida, amid news of settling their feud about the couple's belongings with Brian Laundrie's family.

However, the topic of conversation with the FBI on Thursday was kept a secret, the News Nation Now reported.

Laundrie family attorney Steve Bertolino said Thursday they have cut a deal with Petito's family in order to split up the things that belonged to the late couple.

“An agreement in principle with respect to the distribution of property between the two families has been reached,” Bertolino said, according to the New York Post. “I have no further comment at this time.”

Earlier this month, reports surfaced Laundrie's parents are trying to reclaim items found near his body, including a notebook that is still in FBI custody. The Petito family had also filed a request with authorities to obtain the YouTuber's belongings that were in the Laundrie family home or in FBI custody.

Petito was reported missing on Sept. 11, during what was supposed to be a cross-country road trip with Laundrie. Authorities found Petito's remains at a national forest in Wyoming on Sept. 19. Her death was ruled a homicide by manual strangulation.

Laundrie, 23, was reported missing after the authorities found Petito's remains. He was determined to be a person of interest in her disappearance.

On Oct. 20, Laundrie's remains were found in Florida’s Myakkahatchee Creek Environmental Park. His death was later ruled to be suicide by gunshot wound to the head. Bertolino said the gun used was taken from his parents’ home. Neither Bertolino nor the Laundrie family had previously mentioned a firearm missing from their home to the FBI.

Several items were found near Laundrie's remains, including a notebook that was submerged underwater for weeks in a dry bag. At the time, North Port Police said the notebook had sustained water damage, but may be “salvageable.” It was handed over to the FBI, who have been working to inspect the pages for legible handwriting or imprints. Authorities believe the notebook could hold clues about what may have happened between Laundrie and Petito. However, no details about the notebook's contents have been made public so far.
