Ahh Wedded bliss. Young love. Such a pretty picture. I was never the type that really planned a wedding as a young girl. I’ve always desperately wanted to be married. Just not to anyone I ever met….well except that one guy from Isle of Palms when I was 19. But I had too many things to do first at that time. It was only in retrospect I realized that he was the love of my life. But this blushing bride, I suspect she was the type that planned her wedding from a young age. There is nothing wrong with that. Most girls look forward to their wedding day. I’ve had more than my fair share of proposals in my life. One guy, just seemed to want to get married. To anyone. He was ready to marry (for the second time) and I suspect the bride was not really that important. I was right. After I dumped him he was married within months. In fact, that has happened twice in my life. Dump the guy one day, invitation to his wedding soon to follow. So this blushing bride I think I understand. She wanted to get married, so she did. It was a lovely wedding. Then she realized the consequences, so to speak of marriage, you are stuck with one guy for the rest of your life. She had made a big mistake. She knew it right after the wedding. Fuck. What to do. What to do?
So she took him hiking in Montana a shoved him off a cliff.
Jordan Graham, our bride who was married on June 29, 2013 after two years of dating the groom Cody Johnson shoved him in the back sending him careening off a cliff to his death just 8 days later. Before she did that, she texted with a friend about her “second thoughts” and said she was going to talk to Cody about her feelings. She told her friend if she didn’t hear from her then “something happened.”
Check out the FBI report here (it’s short and VERY interesting) . She reported her husband missing after shoving him off a cliff. Then pretended to just happen to find his body. It’s all kinda creepy. Go.Read.The.Link. She is charged with first degree murder and lying to police. Both of which it looks like from the report she admitted to.
But the latest news is that the prosecution has asked for more time to test a piece of cloth near the body. They suspect it is a blindfold. Jordan made a comment to investigators that she was worried about the cliffs and Cody said he could hike the trail blind folded.
As always in my sidebars for trial watchers, feel free to bring up any case that interests you.
