A Glacier Park murder has caused a 22-year-old newlywed wife to be charged with second degree murder. On Sept. 10, FOX News reported that Jordan Linn Graham could face life behind bars if she is convicted of murdering her husband, 25-year-old Cody Lee Johnson. In a strange and terribly sad report, Graham told police that she and her new husband had been arguing -- perhaps about the fact that he was having second thoughts about getting married.
"Graham has told an FBI agent that she and her husband had been arguing on July 7 as they walked in the Loop Trail area of the park. At one point, she turned to walk away, but Johnson grabbed her arm, she said. She turned around, removed his hand from her arm and 'due to her anger, she pushed Johnson with both hands in the back, and as a result, he fell face first off the cliff,' an affidavit states" (via FOX News).
The Glacier Park murder is under investigation but it sounds like Graham has been cooperating with authorities thus far. While things do seem pretty cut and dry, there are quite a few pieces of this story that are still being put together. Graham has also changed her story a few times which isn't surprising at all.
Before the murder, Graham reportedly told a friend that she was going to talk to Johnson. She said, "But dead serious if u [sic] don't hear from me at all again tonight, something happened." This sounds like Graham was afraid for her life... so what really happened?
Was the Glacier Park murder an accident? Or did Graham kill her husband on purpose?
