According to a tipster, this Friday’s Dateline NBC will cover the Michael George case, as long rumored:

The promo I just saw for this Friday’s Dateline NBC was slugged as “two decades later can they solve the comic book murder?” and they showed a photo of Michael George’s wife and the front of his store, so I guess that’s the story they’ll be covering.

On at 10 PM, NBC, and most likely re-run on MSNBC ten thousand times.

You’ll recall that George was charged and convicted of killing his wife almost 20 years ago, and faking a robbery as a cover-up. His conviction is currently under appeal, and George could still go free, as the evidence against him is considered circumstantial enough to merit a renewed request for a directed verdict. A directed verdict would overturn the conviction.
