Files Wrongful Death Suit …
Against Brian Laundrie’s Estate

Gabby Petito‘s mother, Nichole Schmidt, has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the estate of her daughter’s deceased killer, Brian Laundrie … seeking around $30k in damages.

Laundrie’s family attorney, Steven Bertolino, tells TMZ … the filing of the wrongful death lawsuit by the Petito family was fully expected and most likely will not be defended.

He said, “The Petitos won’t have anything more than a piece paper that tells everyone what everyone already knows: that Brian was responsible Gabby’s death, as indicated by FBI. “

According to the lawsuit … Laundrie killed Gabby and her parents had to cover funeral and burial expenses. They claim that they have suffered a loss in care and comfort from their daughter.

As for why only $30k, when they could have sued for 7-figures for the murder of their daughter, we’re guessing it’s because the funds just aren’t there.
