The tragic story of former University of Michigan student Jeffrey Pyne will be the season premiere this Sunday at 9:00 on the new show Deadline: Crime with Tamron Hall.
Pyne was convicted in 2012 of the second degree murder of his mother Ruth Pyne. He is currently waiting for his appeal attorney to file his paperwork.
Pyne is a former student and a family friend. Recently I visited him in a Muskegon prison.
Show will feature yours truly
Last spring, I was interviewed in detail about my perception of the unfair murder trial of Jeff Pyne.
An entire crew came to my mother’s house, and it was quite the ordeal.
While I was previously interviewed about this case for People Magazine, Good Morning America and Fox News, the questioning for this show was more in-depth.
They focused on my investigation and coverage of the murder trial, which was based on circumstantial evidence. There was a lot of evidence that was ignored, and many possible leads that were not pursued.
I am anxious to see how the show turned out. If I’m lucky, they will only show me for a split second, like Dateline did after interviewing my son Steven in detail about the case.

Where can this new crime show be found?
The program can be found on the Investigation Discovery Channel, according to Peter L. Bull, Producer for NBC News - Peacock Productions
I figured that we wouldn’t get the channel, but found that most of us do. It is easily found by putting in a zip code and internet provider at this link.
