DATELINE NBC GOES INSIDE THE MURDER OF TEXAS MOM HEIDI BROUSSARD JUST DAYS AFTER SUSPECT IS CHARGED

‘Abducted,’ Chronicling the Mystery that Exploded Into a National Story, Airs Friday at 10 pm ET/9pm CT

January 29, 2020 – Dateline NBC reveals an inside look at the case of murdered Texas mother Heidi Broussard in an all-new special broadcast airing Friday, Jan. 31 at 10 pm ET/9pm CT, just days after the prime suspect, Magen Fieramusca, who was also one of her closest friends, was charged with capital murder.

The one-hour episode, entitled Abducted, includes interviews with Broussard’s friends and family, as well as FBI special agent in charge Christopher Combs. The case made national headlines last December when Broussard was found murdered after she and her newborn, Margot, disappeared. Margot was found and reunited with her father. Fieramusca has not entered any plea for charges of capital murder, kidnapping and tampering with a corpse but her lawyers note that she remains innocent unless the state has proven the allegations beyond a reasonable doubt and they say that despite their continued requests, the government has yet to disclose any evidence against their client.
