I guess, but it seems odd. JMOOIMHO
Brian confessed to his parents to get their help in avoiding legal repercussions. He wanted protection.
Brian confessed in the suicide note because he wanted to broadcast his version of what happened. He wanted notoriety.
It's all self-serving.
My thoughts are that his parents grilled him about it and maybe even accused him of doing something bad, which is why he took off when and how he did.
Then I think--and this is all just MOO--that he knew he would be found out so he decided to kill himself, but he left the suicide note mostly for his parents--trying to make it sound as though he had no other choice. It was a stupid story, but to me, it sounded like something a kid would try to get his parents to believe.
The one thing I really don't believe is that his parents tried to help him abscond. Had they tried -- he wouldn't have ended up dead.
