Mom, daugh­ters eyed in ‘let’s kill dad’ mur­der plot

Toronto Sun - - NEWS - — Brad Hunter

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.
