Wife of missing Idaho boater accused of embezzling $500K

SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) — A former director of the North Idaho Housing Coalition has been charged with embezzling from the nonprofit group.

The Spokesman-Review reports that 64-year-old Lori Isenberg was charged on Tuesday. She is accused of embezzling about $500,000.

Isenberg is the wife of missing Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, resident Larry Isenberg. She told police two weeks ago that her 68-year-old husband had fallen off their boat and into Lake Coeur d’Alene.

She said he fell into the water while trying to fix the boat’s motor.

Lori Isenberg said she looked for her husband for two hours near Powderhorn Bay before she could call for help.

A Coeur d’Alene police report detailing her arrest on grand theft and 40 charges of forgery was not available.

It was unclear if Lori Isenberg has an attorney.
