Brian Laundrie shared a number to a violence-filled game in July 2020, which prompted people to listen to an eerie voicemail recording.
According to the U.S. Sun, Laundrie shared a phone number to the game “Hotline Miami” on his Instagram account, along with hand-drawn pictures from the game. One drawing showed a character holding a bloody knife while wearing blood-stained clothes.
Internet sleuths found the photo while searching through Laundrie’s Instagram posts. According to Steam, the game is “overflowing with raw brutality, hard-boiled gunplay, and skull-crushing close combat.”
The voicemail depicts a male voice claiming “we are 50 Blessings, together we march, m-m-m-march, into the future.”
Another voicemail from the same number claims the number is no longer in service.
Although the photos do not necessarily mean that Laundrie got violent ideas from the game, social media users pointed out the general eeriness of the artwork after Laundrie’s girlfriend, 22-year-old Gabby Petito, was found dead.
Laundrie described himself as a comic book fan and a follower of pop culture.

As CrimeOnline previously reported, 23-year-old Laundrie is wanted on a felony warrant following the death of Petito. Laundrie and Petito embarked on a cross-country trip in July, but by September 1, Laundrie returned to his parents’ North Port, Florida, home with Petito’s van, sans Petito.
Last month, authorities found Gabby’s deceased body in a remote area at the Bridger-Teton National Forest in Wyoming. Officials confirmed that the manner of death was a homicide but the cause of death is still pending.
Authorities issued the federal warrant for Laundrie for allegedly using a Capitol One Bank debit card without permission after Gabby passed away. Laundrie is said to have used the card between August 30 and September 1, “knowingly and with intent to defraud.”
Laundrie’s parents have insisted they have no clue where he is. They claimed he left their residence with a backpack on and headed to the Carlton Reserve on September 14. They reported him missing three days later.
