Let's Go Back To The First Marriage

​Harold Henthorn met his first wife, Lynn Rishell, in college. Those close to her say that she had a kind personality and it was shown in her work a social worker. Lynn and Harold were married for 12 years before she died, keep in mind this magic number.

Not only is the number of years of their marriage interesting to note, but so are the circumstances of the tragedy that ended her life.

Harold And Lynn Were On A Night Drive

On May 6, 1995, Harold and Lynn went on a nighttime drive along a highway in Colorado. They stopped to fix a flat tire.

Harold's story goes that while changing the tire, Lynn went under the car to get a lug nut that she dropped. Conveniently at the same time, Harold happened to throw the flat tire into the trunk of the Jeep. Allegedly this caused for the car to fall off the jack, crushing Lynn under the car. Lynn then died in the hospital from what they deemed to be a tragic car accident.

Harold Got Away With It

Lynn''s family and friends noticed that Harold's story kept changing the more that he was asked about it. Not being able to assume the worse, but they figured he was upset and grieving and left it at that.

From a legal perspective, The Douglas County Sheriff's Office closed the case and labeled Lynn's death an accident.

Then Harold Met His Second Wife, Toni

It didn't take long after Lynn's passing before Harold found himself ready to go back on the market. Five years later, he signed up for a Christian dating website where he met Toni and married her.

Toni was often described as an extremely smart woman by those who know her. The 38-year-old worked as an ophthalmologist while the man she thought would be the love of her life described himself as an entrepreneur. Toni was involved in her Christian community even teaching Sunday school and singing in the choir.

Toni's Family Thought Harold Was Sketchy

​Toni's family worried that Harold was controlling and that he could even be manipulating Toni with threats. Not only would he intercept all phone calls to the house but he made Toni move from her hometown to separate her from her family. Toni didn't want to move but she was afraid to suffer the consequences if she said no.

Even Toni's coworkers started to notice that Harold was inserting himself in all of Toni's life to control her.

A Trip To Celebrate Their 12th Anniversary

​Remember how we mentioned magic number 12? You think you'd really know a person 12 years later. This couple even had a child together by then. Harold decided he wanted to surprise Toni with a trip to Rocky Mountain National Park to celebrate their anniversary. He even had his office manager help him plan it and film the surprise reveal to his wife.

Toni had no idea this hike would see her last breath. Somehow when hiking, Toni experienced a dreadful accident and fell 140 feet to her death.

An Attempt To Look Innocent

Harold texted Toni's brother on the scene to let him know of the accident, thinking that this would not make him look guilty. Except when investigating the so-called accident, the investigator learned of the unusual circumstances that Harold's first wife Lynn had also died. They reopened the case and changed the cause of death to "undermined."

Finally, two years after Toni's fatal fall, Harold's true intentions were uncovered and he was arrested and charged for his crimes.

Two Women Bound By The Same Fate

Lynn and Toni Henthorn were not only connected by tragedy but with their final resting spot. Harold spread both their ashes, 17 years apart, in the same spot.

In any relationship, always look at how you feel and ask yourself: does this person make you love yourself more? Do you want to grow old with them?

Love is more than just and butterflies, and settling for the wrong person can turn out deadly. If you want to know more on what your birth chart reveals about how you love and what you need out of a partner, check out this personalized report based on date of birth.

What Was In It For Harold?

Both Harold's first wife and Toni had large insurance policies taken out on them by Harold Himself. If his plan had worked he would have inherited $4.7 million from Toni's death. He even took his own daughter off the insurance policy so that all the money would go to him.

Just when you thought the story couldn't get worse, the investigation revealed that Harold's supposed career as a successful "entrepreneur" wasn't even real. He hadn't actually worked in decades and had no income...

Aries doesn't care to sugarcoat and avoid the hard truth. They prefer to act in the heat in the moment and cut right down to the chase. You know that when Aries go for a night out, they won't be shy away from their dancing their heart out. They take that same explosive energy wherever they go. When they're grieving, that's all they feel and they let themselves face it head-on until they can come to terms with it.

They may feel a lot of anger at first or a lot of sadness, and they may not deal with that component calmly but having the strength to be straightforward about their grief is what helps them let the feelings pass and move on.

Taurus: An Ability To Escape

A Taurus likely won't grief right away and try to keep their chin up. They might even try to console others first because the distraction helps them escape. When they're not helping others, they're going to want to disappear for a while, taking themselves on solo dates and watching movie marathons. They'll basically do anything to distract themselves and escape the pain.

However, their ability to escape is also their strength. It gives them a reason to keep going and eases them into adapting to a life without the person they lost gradually.

Gemini: Seeing The Good

Gemini will do their best to resist their grief. They would rather stay positive to cope. However, the more they avoid what's really on their mind, the more likely they are to be moody. However, when they chose to accept grief, they manage to always find a silver lining.

Their strength is in choosing to celebrate a person's life instead of mourning their death. To them, the end is not a loss because if they never had it in the first place they would have missed out on a lot.

When Libra deals with grief, it can become more rational than usual. Libra is able to accept loss and death as unavoidable parts of life so it sees no point in fighting it. Instead, it spends its energy on adapting to a new life without what it is that it lost.

Scorpio: Manipulation Through Empathy

​When we hear the word "manipulation" we tend to think of its negative connotation. But manipulation by definition is an ability to purposely mold. For Scorpios, manipulation isn't just getting what they want out of others. When grieving, they're able to manipulate their sadness with intention.

This comes in different forms. For instance, by spending time with animals, children, or loved ones, they're able to manipulate feelings of protection and love that heal both themselves and those around them.

Sagittarius: The Hunt For Happiness

​Saggitarius is driven by a genuine desire to find happiness. When they're first grieving they may feel lost and helpless as they no longer see a path to happiness.

Yet eventually their ambition kicks in and fuels them with the desire to fight their pain. They don't avoid their emotions and instead try to find ways to turn the negative ones into positive ones and be as happy as possible until they can become fully happy again.

Capricorn tries to be mature about the way they handle grief, and finds it unhelpful to spend days in bed or to get angry. As an earth sign they feel connected to a higher being and can see the bigger picture.

They understand that loss will hurt for a while but that with time they will get past it, so they do their best to go through the motions until then, each day becoming easier than the last, until they're fully themselves again.

Aquarius: Living Back Memories

Capricorns don't need external validation and motivation because they find it within themselves. They know the difference between what they can and can't control. They know they can't control a loss but they know that no one can take away the memories they created before they no longer could. So they chose to focus on what they can do.

They keep memories alive through pictures. They reconnect with people from their childhood or they pick up passions they left behind. This way, they connect back with themselves instead of caving to the loss.

Pisces: Just Keeps Swimming

Pisces just need to be reminded that no matter what happens and how bad it is, the world keeps going and so they need to be able to keep up with it. Usually, they can get to this stage before falling down a spiral. Instead, they chose to lose themselves in ways that feel beautiful to them.

They chose to keep swimming. They indulge in self-care methods like watching movies or spending quality time with others. Their strength is in jump-starting their healing process and their motivation to keep moving forward.
