20/20 abc

ABC 20/20 Tonight, Friday (December 9, 2022) Exclusive interview with fake doctor who hid a deadly secret.

This episode of “ABC 20/20” airs tonight December 9 at 9PM ET. On the surface, Dean Faiello seemed to have it all, from a successful medical practice with high-end Manhattan clientele to a meticulously restored Gilded Age mansion outside the city. But things were not as they seemed: even though Faiello ― whose cosmetology practice focused on high-powered lasers — presented himself as a doctor, he had no medical training. His deceit turned deadly for patient Maria Cruz, who saw Faiello for a procedure after authorities had already charged him for practicing medicine without a license. In a new “20/20,” ABC News senior investigative correspondent David Scott has an exclusive interview with Faiello, who appears on camera for the first time since going to prison to detail what he says really happened to Cruz on that tragic day. For the first time, he describes in his own words the shocking events at the center of the case, including the never-before-reported story of how he fled to Costa Rica and tried to get adopted as a 40-year-old in an attempt to avoid extradition to the United States.

The two-hour special also includes interviews with investigative journalists Jeane MacIntosh and Barbara Nevins Taylor, whose undercover investigations first exposed that Faiello was practicing medicine without a license; his former romantic partner Greg Bach, who gave authorities a critical tip; investigator Brian Ford, who played a key role in cracking the case; other former friends and colleagues of Faiello, who shed light on his drug use and state-of-mind; and friends of victim Maria Cruz

DiscussPW is a mix of Pro Wrestling and Entertainment. The site was started in 2016 and has gone through many changes over the years. Our main focus was events and tickets, but then the pandemic happened. We had to mix things up and will now be doing a lot more news. Events will still be covered, just as news instead of on a calendar. This site had an extensive events calendar, which we have moved away from. Pro wrestling has always been our main thing, we also do a lot of entertainment though. For example, we post movie trailers, tv previews and other kinds of news. We have a few discussions but strongly encourage comments on all of our posts. Be sure to keep things civil while commenting. If you have any questions or concerns, contact us above.
