Almost two years later, ABC 20/20 film crews had numerous trips to Castle Rock in the last 3 months to cover this tragedy and filmed 2 segments in Castle Rock at the Theatre of Dreams. The show is called " The Ultimate Betrayal" - It is just one of the segments, not an entire special on our Castle Rock story as originally planned.
This T.V. Special is to air tonight, Friday, March 29th. The ABC 20/20 Sunday Special will be at 9 pm Mountain Time.
Interviews with Castle Rock detectives will be included as well as interviews with the family of the victims. The murderer, Christopher B. Wells, 50, was a former Chippendales dancer and a recreation of a Chippendales scene was filmed at Theatre of Dreams in Castle Rock last month as well.
