20/20 Tonight, Friday (August 18, 2023) First interview with ex-wife of man whose colliding double lives led to murder.
This episode of “20/20” airs tonight August 18, 2023 at 9PM ET. Just two days before Molly Watson was set to marry James Addie, her love of seven years, a passing motorist found her tragically murdered on a quiet Missouri road. Authorities soon discovered an elaborate and tangled web of lies surrounding James, spun to conceal his biggest secret of all. He was living a double life, both engaged to Watson and married for over 20 years with kids at home. As investigators dug through text messages and other key evidence, the question became: How far would James Addie go to ensure his two lives wouldn’t collide? “20/20” contributing anchor Deborah Roberts sits down with Melanie Addie, James’ ex-wife, who discusses her marriage and how the experience of finding out the truth about her husband shattered the life she once knew.
The two-hour program also includes interviews with Glen McSparren, the motorist who found Watson’s body and may have seen the killer at the scene; Sam Addie, James’ brother; Sheriff Joe Colston, who helped in the investigation; and Samantha Cohen, Chrystal Graves-Yazici and Tabetha Schilb, wedding vendors who worked closely with Watson and Addie in the days before Watson’s murder. “20/20” features interviews with Tim Watson, Watson’s brother; Patsy Dent, Watson’s aunt; Jodi Lindberg, Watson’s cousin; and prosecutors Talley Smith and Katharine Dolin.
