Dateline is airing a story tonight concerning the 2003 murder of Randi Trimble by her husband, Brian Trimble, and his friend, Blaine Norris.
The Harrisburg Patriot-News reported that Brian Trimble was upset with his wife for stopping his RPG time and refusing to allow him to purchase high-tech gadgets. Norris needed money to complete a film project he was working on, so the two conspired to kill Randi for her life insurance money. The pair killed her on the night of a role-playing campaign that she had made Brian cancel because they had other obligations.
“This is a tough case,” Dennis Murphy, a Dateline correspondent, commented. “There were no forensics. (The police) knew that Brian Trimble was the link, the video-game player locked forever at sixteen years old. Blaine Norris had the nerves to do the killing. And they had to get one guy to flip on the other.”
Both men are serving life sentences for the crime.
