The Glacier Park murder victim was warned about marrying his alleged killer. Ravalli Republic reports Sept. 11 that a groomsman of Cody Lee Johnson's warned him not to marry Jordan Linn Graham, the woman who confessed to pushing Johnson off a cliff in the The Loop area of Glacier National Park after an argument erupted between them.
“Their interaction with each other, it didn’t seem like a happy, loving relationship that you would normally see. It was just very awkward, I guess,” said Cameron Fredrickson, a friend of Johnson's since 2006. He also worked with the Glacier Park murder victim at Nomad Global Communication Solutions in Kalispell.
“She was just very distant and reserved,” Fredrickson noted.
On Monday, 22-year-old Graham was arrested on charges of second-degree murder.
The Glacier Park murder case took place the evening of July 7 when the couple were hiking. They had been married just over a week. Graham informed authorities July 11 of where her husband's body was. It was discovered on steep terrain after he allegedly fell over a cliff. Graham confessed to pushing him over the cliff during the heat of their argument. She said she could have left after Johnson supposedly grabbed her arm, but she pushed back and it sent him on a deadly fall.
The groomsman who warned Johnson about marrying Graham doesn't believe he really "grabbed" her arm during the argument. Fredrickson said Johnson was a "light-hearted, loving, selfless and easy going" guy.
