American Monster: Harold Henthorn almost got away with killing two wives after he pushed second off a cliff

Harold and Toni Henthorn

Harold Henthorn pushed his wife Toni to her death

Harold and Toni Henthorn were both middle-aged and on their second marriages, seemingly happy with life and the life they’d setup with their young daughter.

However, their apparent marital bliss was shattered when a hiking trip went badly wrong. In September 2012 for their 12th wedding anniversary they headed to Deer Mountain in the Rocky Mountain National Park. After eating lunch at a particularly remote and awkward spot, Toni fell off a cliff and suffered what would be fatal injuries.

Her husband told police she was breathing for nearly an hour after the fall and that he repeatedly attempted CPR to keep her alive, but sadly he was unable to prevent her death before rescuers arrived. He also said that she fell around 30 or 40 feet and that he’d

This week Six Degrees of Murder examines the case of Elizabeth Palmer and Matt Scott, who were murdered in cold blood for a car.

49-year-old finance manager Elizabeth Palmer and salesman Matthew Scott worked together at Golden Sun Homes, a business owned by Scott’s father.

On the morning of February 2, 2009, owner Donald Scott arrived at the office to find the pair dead behind a desk. They had both been shot in the head whilst kneeling, in an execution-style murder.

Palmer’s Lexus car was missing and police spent months looking for it to try and catch a break on the case. In October 2009 the car was found by an officer in a parking lot in Anaheim.

Richard Mannion Jr. was shot dead by an ex-girlfriend as he slept

This week Six Degrees of Murder spotlights the murder of 43-year-old Gulf War veteran Richard Mannion Jr.

January 2012 in Brentwood,CA., and father of four Mannion was found dead in home by his girlfriend, he’d been shot in the head.

The police investigation eventually led to his ex-girlfriend Nicole LeBlanc, the pair having split up a few months before.

In the lead up to the crime LeBlanc had repeatedly contacted Mannion almost to the point of stalking. On the night of the murder she stole a gun from her current boyfriend and then sneaked into Mannion’s home. Her planning was quite meticulous and LeBlanc wore latex gloves and even put on Mannion’s shoes to avoid leaving any evidence. She then put a folded towel over his head as he slept and

Trump Says MS-13 Has Transformed Long Island Neighborhoods Into ‘Blood-Stained Killing Fields’

BRENTWOOD, NY — President Donald Trump spoke in Brentwood Friday about the insidious MS-13 gang that’s been terrorizing local communities across Long Island in the county.

And in his speech, he promised to rid the gang-ravaged communities of Long Island of the “animals” on their streets.

The event began with remarks from Tom Homan, Director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement, who vowed to MS-13, “We will target all of you.”

Rep. Peter King told the crowd, “President Trump will always be in your corner. He will always have your back. President Trump knows that Blue Lives do matter.”

Trump took the stage to cheers and lauded the police officers before him. “I’m a big, big believer and admirer of the people in law enforcement, and I have been from day one.” He thanked police officers, sheriffs, ICE officers and all members of law enforcement.

Television show asks if Sacramento man was unfairly convicted of killing his parents

Even as her nephew was taken away in shackles for the brutal 2008 double murder of his parents, Angela Amundson held out hope the police and district attorney had the wrong person.

Some five years after Matthew Riley was convinced of killing Steven and Linda Riley at their Natomas home, Amundson received new reason for hope in the form of retired homicide detective Chris Anderson and criminal defense attorney Melissa Lewkowicz.

Anderson and Lewkowicz re-investigate closed homicide cases in hopes of helping the wrongly convicted go free or helping their families move on by reaffirming the police’s findings in their show “Reasonable Doubt,” which is in its first season on Investigation Discovery. The episode about the Matthew Riley murder will air at 10 p.m. PST on Wednesday.

Family of Elaine O’Hara hit out at TV show about her killing at the hands of Graham Dwyer

The family of Elaine O’Hara have hit out at an American TV show that documents her killing at the hands of Graham Dwyer.

Extremely graphic details of the sadistic murder have been reconstructed for a major crime network in the US.

The 2015 case which gripped the nation of Ireland was broadcast in an episode of Married With Secrets which appears on the Investigation Discovery Channel.

A screen grab from the new show

However the family of Elaine have said they were not consulted about the show at all.

A family member told The Sun: “I’m not aware of this. It certainly hasn’t trickled to me.

“It’s going to be over there in the States? Why would the States be interested? We all know it (the story), back to front and all that.

“I certainly

Killing Richard Glossip probes death row inmate’s case, gets greenlit for fifth episode

Richard Glossip, whose case features in Investigation Discovery’s miniseries Killing Richard Glossip

Investigation Discovery tonight launches a new four-part documentary series, Killing Richard Glossip, examining whether the titular death row inmate in Oklahoma is actually innocent.

The miniseries is helmed by Joe Berlinger, best known as the director of Paradise Lost, a trio of feature-length documentaries that contributed to the release of the nationally known West Memphis Three after they spent more than two decades behind bars.

Glossip was slapped with a charge of murder for hire following the brutal killing of Best Budget Inn motel owner Barry Van Treese in 1997.

The maintenance man who committed the murder, Justin Sneed, claims Glossip orchestrated the crime, while Glossip denies the accusation. Sneed is currently serving life without parole.

Glossip has faced execution three times, but they have each been stayed. Most recently, Glossip averted lethal injection after it was discovered that Oklahoma’s Department of Corrections

KILLING RICHARD GLOSSIP Documentary explores new evidence in possible

KILLING RICHARD GLOSSIP Documentary 1

Investigation Discovery’s four-part Killing Richard Glossip documentary takes a comprehensive look at the case of an Oklahoma man sentenced to death for a murder that police know he didn’t commit, and that Glossip has argued for years he had nothing to do with. The miniseries was produced by acclaimed filmmaker Joe Berlinger, best-known for his documentary Paradise Lost, which was responsible for helping free the West Memphis Three in 2011. Berlinger’s latest effort will feel familiar to fans of Serial (and, to a lesser extent, Making A Murderer) in that it presents evidence not brought to light during Richard Glossip’s original trial twenty years ago, using it to question whether justice would be best served by granting Glossip a new trial or an outright overturning of his sentence.
