ABC News has announced details on the next episode of “20/20”, which reports on the conspiracy behind a law professor’s gruesome murder, and this week’s program features an exclusive interview with June Umchinda, the defendant’s ex-girlfriend, and additional interviews with Ruth and Phil Markel, Dan’s parents, and Michael Weinstein, a former family friend.
The episode is called “First Divorced Then Dead” and tells the story of what happened on the morning of July 18th, 2014, when a beloved FSU law professor and father of two young children, Dan Markel, pulled into his driveway and was approached by an unknown man who shot him twice in the head at point-blank range. Detectives found no clues about the perpetrators at the crime scene; they had only one lead to work with — a neighbour who gave a loose description of a Prius speeding out of Dan’s driveway.
Through a series of interviews and with aid from the FBI, police were able to uncover the travels of the Prius through a web of surveillance footage and toll booth data, which finally led to the arrest of the hitmen responsible for his death. But the question remained: Who hired the hitmen? With reporting from ABC News chief national affairs correspondent Matt Gutman, “20/20” documents how prosecutors used newly enhanced audio as the final link to charge Dan’s ex-wife’s brother, Charlie Adelson, with the crime.
The two-hour program features an exclusive interview with June Umchinda, Charlie Adelson’s ex-girlfriend, and additional interviews with Ruth and Phil Markel, Dan’s parents, and Michael Weinstein, a former family friend.
The two-hour “20/20” episode, will be released on ABC on Friday, 10th November 2023, from 9:00-11:00 p.m. EST and will be available to stream on ABC News digital platforms and Hulu the following day.
