The latest chapter in the suspicious disappearance and death of a Kalispell man was written Monday when his new wife made her initial appearance on a criminal complaint that alleges she murdered her husband. Cody Johnson, 25, was reported missing July 8 after he did not show up for work. His body was found four days later at the bottom of a cliff in Glacier National Park. The location of his body was given to park rangers by his wife, Jordan Linn Graham. According to an affidavit filed along with a criminal complaint by a special agent with the FBI, Graham, 22, provided several false statements about Johnson’s death before admitting during a July 16 interview that she pushed him off a cliff on The Loop hiking trail after an argument. The couple had been married nine days before his death/Jesse Davis, Daily Inter Lake. More here.
