Before his death, John Saxton had been engaged to marry a woman named Barbara, but suspected her of having an affair with his brother Donald. Yielding to his paranoia, John hired a private detective to spy on them, and he received a report which seemed to confirm his suspicions, as Donald was heard to tell Barbara that he loved her. Enraged, John undermined a rock formation so that an avalanche would eventually fall on Donald and Barbara's picnic grounds, but read the rest of the report and learned that his suspicions were misguided (Donald meant that he only loved Barbara as a SISTER). Panic stricken, John ran to the picnic area and shouted at Donald and Barbara to get back. Unfortunately, the noise of John's shouts caused the avalanche to occur, and he was killed by the falling rocks. Donald and Barbara survived, but would never know what had truly happened.[1]
