Olin Johnson’s Final Post

A Utah fam­i­ly is griev­ing after a trag­ic mur­der-sui­cide that took the lives of Olin John­son, 57, and his wife Ker­i­lyn, 52. The cou­ple was found dead at their home in Amer­i­can Fork. 

Police believe Olin shot Ker­i­lyn before turn­ing the gun on him­self. Their six chil­dren, rang­ing from late teens to adults, have been left orphaned.

In his last Insta­gram post, just a day before the tragedy, Olin wrote: “No mat­ter how crap­py a per­son I am, motor­cy­cles always love me back. Oh and ski­ing. Ski­ing loves me too.” 

The post fea­tured a pic­ture of Olin on his motor­cy­cle, a hob­by he shared with his fam­i­ly. Olin’s chil­dren respond­ed with lov­ing mes­sages, unaware of the impend­ing darkness.

Community in Shock

The cou­ple’s friends and fam­i­ly described them as enjoy­ing out­door activ­i­ties and vaca­tions togeth­er. The motive for the mur­der-sui­cide remains unclear. Ker­i­lyn’s for­mer teacher called her “one of the most gen­er­ous, kind, sup­port­ive people.”

A GoFundMe page has been set up to sup­port the John­son chil­dren. This heart­break­ing event high­lights the impor­tance of men­tal health aware­ness and seek­ing help dur­ing dif­fi­cult times.
