On Friday, the contents of his notebook were released by Steven Bertolino, an attorney for his family, and obtained by Access Hollywood. Laundrie wrote in part, "I ended her life. I thought it was merciful, that it is what she wanted, but I see now all the mistakes I made. I panicked. I was in shock. But from the moment I decided, took away her pain, I knew I couldn't go on without her."
