(60 minutes) I (Almost) Got Away With It
Got the Wrong Four People Killed
TV-14 (DLSV), CC
Scott Burnside hires a hit man to kill a friend's wife. But when the hit goes wrong, and four people are found murdered, Burnside flees to a remote island. On the run, Scott is unable to adjust to his lonely life. His family ties tip the Feds.
Watch for my name --Patricia Lieb-- and my book MURDERS IN THE SWAMPLAND in the credits.
The story is in MURDERS IN THE SWAMPLAND; it is titled SHE'S AS GOOD AS DEAD.... The deal Scott Burnside made to the young hit man was to kill Joanne Sanders--Barrett goes to Joanne's house three different times before he kills the four men. I covered the case for the newspaper and also called in information about it to WTOG tv in St. Petersburg... There were four different trials... I covered Dorsey Sander's III trial (Joanne's son) and John Barrett's (the hit man)--what a scene in the courtroom when the judge sentenced Barrett to death.. His parents totally broke down (death sentence has since been overturned). I had already started working with another newspaper, though, when Scott was brought back from the Christmas Islands. However, I still read the depositions for his case. Long, long, long story! The program is going to air again tonight at 11 p.m.
Most of the still photos are mine... Yea!!!
Should be on other channels at other times.
