Statement from U.S. Attorney Cole Finegan on Verdict in USA v. Lawrence Rudolph and Lori Milliron

For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, District of Colorado

"Today, a jury in federal court found Lawrence Rudolph guilty of murdering his wife, Bianca Rudolph, and of defrauding multiple life insurance companies.  They also found Lori Milliron guilty of being an accessory after the fact to the murder, obstruction of justice, and two counts of perjury before the grand jury.

We are thankful for the jury’s diligence looking at all the evidence in this case. Bianca Rudolph deserved justice. This case was an exceptional example of the entire U.S. Attorney’s Office pulling together with our law enforcement partners to uncover the truth and seek justice for a victim who had no other voice.

I also want to specifically thank the efforts of the FBI, which worked to obtain justice by literally going around the world to interview witnesses and collect evidence.  Their efforts were exemplary, and we are grateful to them.

The mission of the Department of Justice is just that -- to do justice.  We are proud to perform that service for the people of Colorado, as well as the victims in this matter.

We can only hope this verdict brings Bianca’s family some amount of peace." - U.S. Attorney Cole Finegan
