Mom, daughters eyed in ‘let’s kill dad’ murder plot
To cops, it looked like
Larry Isenberg drowned after tumbling from his boat.
The problem was his system was juiced with skyhigh levels of Benadryl.
Now, detectives have named wife Laurcene
“Lori” Isenberg and her two daughters from an earlier marriage as suspects.
Larry Isenberg was reported missing Feb. 13 after disappearing on Lake Coeur d’Alene in Idaho.
His body was found 16 days later.
The autopsy pinned the cause of death down to the staggering level of Benadryl in his system, KXLY reported.
His wife said he wasn’t feeling well, adding that “he looked awful.”
But there was more.
At the same time as the retired forester disappeared, his wife was busted for embezzling from her workplace.
And pals said Larry had just recovered from the flu and was feeling better.
One said Larry had sent him a thumbs-up emoji.
Larry had never sent him an emoji, but his wife had.
Cops say now that Lori and her two adult daughters — Jessica Barnes and
Amber Hosking — are under investigation for conspiracy to commit murder and theft in the first degree.
The couple’s friends say the daughters were sponges and their mother was always ready to oblige them with cash.
Lori’s cash giveaways to her daughters were a bone of contention between the couple, friends said.
“She was constantly enabling them and giving money to help out her daughters,” friend Michael Holmes said.
While charged with 40 counts of fraud and embezzlement for ripping off her employer for $500,000, neither her nor her daughters have been charged with murder.
Now, it appears she’s on the run after skipping her arraignment.
A warrant has been issued for her arrest.
