Harold Henthorn took his wife Toni Henthorn for a surprise hike in the Rocky Mountains to celebrate their 12th wedding anniversary. When Toni “had fallen” off a rock, from about 140 feet, Harold calmly called 911, told them exactly where they were “on the north summit of Deer Mountain,” and asked for a rescue helicopter. Harold also texted his brother-in-law Barry saying that Toni had been injured. But it was too late. Toni died in the mountains.
Harold Henthorn stood to collect three life insurance policies worth $4.5 million after Toni’s death. An investigation of Toni’s death found a map of the park in Harold Henthorn’s car with a pink x marking the spot where Lynn had fallen. A jury found Harold Henthorn guilty of first-degree murder of Toni Henthorn. He is scheduled to be sentenced on December 8, 2015. Now another Sheriff’s Office in Colorado is reopening the investigation of Lynn Henthorn, Harold’s first wife who died 17 years earlier in a bizarre car accident. 48 Hours correspondent Peter Van Sant will report new evidence regarding Toni Henthron’s death on Saturday, Nov. 21 at 9pm.
