AN ADVENTURE ended in tragedy when a woman is found dead after going on safari with her husband.
The death of the late Bianca Rudolph was believed to be an accident until police uncovered who was actually responsible.
Who was Bianca Rudolph?
Born on December 4, 1959, Bianca Rudolph was an avid hunting enthusiast from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
Before her death, Bianca was associated with dentist and hunting expert Dr. Larry Rudolph married.
Bianca and Larry have had two children from their 34-year marriage.
Although the family later moved to Arizona from Pennsylvania, the husband and wife often visited Africa for hunting trips.
On October 11, 2016, Bianca tragically died while on a hunting trip in Zambia.
The 56-year-old mother of two is buried in the Queen of Heaven Catholic Cemetery in McMurry, Pennsylvania.
What happened to Bianca?
On Tuesday, October 11, local authorities rushed to Bianca and Larry’s home after gunshots were reported.
At the time, the couple were on an African safari in Kafue National Park in Zambia to hunt more animals.
When police arrived at the scene, Bianca was found dead with a gunshot wound to the chest.
Larry told police his wife was putting away her 12-gauge rifle when it allegedly accidentally went off, killing her.
Although local Zambian authorities initially believed her death to be an accident, US law enforcement continued to investigate the matter.
With Bianca’s husband’s stories at odds with other accounts, the investigation spiraled into a murder case.
On December 22, 2021, Larry was arrested in connection with the murder of his late wife.
On February 15, 2022, Larry’s associate and office manager, Lori Milliron, was also arrested.
It turns out that the married man and Lori were having an extramarital affair before Bianca’s murder.
Months later, on Monday, August 1, Larry and Lori were convicted of the charges against them in Bianca’s murder investigation.
