I am here to unpack the latest drama surrounding the Utah grief book author Kouri Richins.
The pot has been stirred once again with some fresh allegations.
Let us dive in.
What is the Latest Gossip?
For those following this story, Kouri is in jail, accused of killing her husband, Eric Richins, with a deadly cocktail last year.
Well, the story just took a wild turn.
Authorities found a handwritten letter in Kouri’s jail cell where she detailed a plot, advising her family on what to say about where her husband got the drugs that ended his life.
She tried to make her brother lie in court, claiming Eric got the drugs from Mexico.
The Mystery Letter
Now, onto this mysterious letter that has everyone talking.
It was found quite by chance after Kouri had a seizure in jail — caused by being given the wrong medicine, not for the first, but the sixth time—quite a series of unfortunate events.
In this six-page note, Kouri told her mom to tell her brother to state a fabricated story that paints Eric as having connections with drug dealers in Mexico.
She even said her brother could change the words to suit him if the main false story stayed the same.
Secret Messages and Worries of Being Watched
However, Kouri seemed to be afraid that her mom’s home and phone were under surveillance, insisting that her mom speak to her brother only face-to-face to discuss this matter.
It feels straight out of a thriller movie, right?
She even instructed her mom to contact someone named “Lotto,” emphasizing that no texts should be exchanged that show they did things together.
Talk about being overly cautious!
Legal Battles and Family Drama
As if that was not enough drama, the defense and prosecution have a back-and-forth about this letter.
While the prosecution says this is clear witness tampering, Kouri’s attorney accuses the state of breaking the rules by using the letter as evidence, arguing it could unfairly influence potential jurors.
A Look Back
To give you a brief background, Kouri, apart from being accused of this grave crime, is also known as a grief book author, having written a book titled “Are You With Me?” after the alleged incident.
She and Eric were caught up in a web of mistrust and alleged affairs, with Eric even fearing that Kouri was trying to poison him at one point.
Property Disputes Add to the Chaos
Amidst this whirlpool of crime and allegations, a massive property dispute is also going on.
Kouri requests a share in several of Eric’s assets, citing their prenuptial agreement.
She is eyeing half the equity in their home, which is worth at least $1.9 million.
