This episode of “ABC 20/20” airs tonight January 27 at 9PM ET. A mother found dead in a apartment either slipped and fell, or something sinister happened.
When Shele Covlin — a 47-year-old mother of two and successful banker — is found dead in her bathtub in her luxury apartment on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, it seems at first like a tragic accident. But family members quickly grow suspicious of her estranged husband, Rod Covlin, especially after authorities exhume her body and come to a shocking conclusion: Shele was strangled. In a new “20/20,” ABC News senior national affairs correspondent and “20/20” contributing anchor Deborah Roberts reports on the secrets uncovered during the years-long investigation, ranging from allegations of domestic abuse to the revelation that Shele had decided to cut Rod out of her multimillion-dollar will just a day before authorities found her dead, that eventually put Rod behind bars.
The two-hour program features interviews with key family members of the estranged couple; Rod’s ex-girlfriend, who gave evidence that helped authorities crack the case; the attorney who provided legal counsel for Shele in her divorce and custody battle; the NYPD detectives who worked on the case; and more.
For over four decades, “20/20” has offered viewers reports and stories that have changed lives.
