the Big Island

and murder charges. Narrated by Paul Winfield.

8-9pm -- AMERICAN JUSTICE® - The Wells Fargo
Heist 
On the surface it looked like the perfect crime,
the daring daylight heist of an armored van
carrying over half a million dollars in cash.
AMERICAN JUSTICE: THE WELLS FARGO HEIST recalls
that the van went missing at a crowded
Phoenix-area mall the Monday after Thanksgiving
1994. When police finally located it, the driver
had been shot dead and the money was long gone.
With no eyewitnesses, fingerprints or DNA
evidence, police would have to rely on their own
cunning to solve the crime. Eventually three
suspects emerged - two bounty hunters and an
ex-cop: Timothy Ring, James Greenham and Bill
Ferguson. The men were intimately familiar with
police investigations and not easy to catch. With
the help of the FBI, police began a 24-hour
surveillance. The suspects' phones were tapped
and their every move watched. Soon an elaborate
cat-and-mouse game ensued, with investigators
patiently waiting for the three men to falter. 

AMERICAN JUSTICE: THE WELLS FARGO HEIST reports
that police finally made an arrest and discovered
a duffel bag containing over $271,000 in cash in
the garage of Timothy Ring. Ring claimed the
money came from the government and that he was an
international bounty hunter on the FBI payroll.
The show includes the surveillance photos, audio
recordings and footage of the arrest.

frightening kidnapping from her bedroom,
desperate search efforts, the investigation's
painful dead ends, Elizabeth's erratic wanderings
in the Utah and California wilderness, her
captor's madness, and the lucky 911 call that led
two alert police officers to her side.

that it all came to an end suddenly in 1989 when
an intruder broke into their home and pumped a
single gunshot into Lisa's temple. Kosta grabbed
his own gun and killed the gunman. Incredibly,
Lisa was still alive and paramedics rushed her to
the hospital. The intruder was 18-year-old Bryan
Chase. The next day, a man called 911 and said

had to kill somebody. Deidre had qualified by

seen tied to a tree. Deidre fired three shots
into the drifter's chest, and one through his
