Just weeks ago, Donthe Lucas was sentenced to life in prison for the murder of his pregnant girlfriend, Kelsie Schelling, who mysteriously disappeared in 2013 and was never seen again. A new two-hour “20/20” dives into the case it’s been following for over five years through the eyes of Schelling’s mother, Laura Saxton. In an exclusive sit-down interview, her first since Lucas’ conviction, Saxton opens up to ABC News and ESPN Correspondent Ryan Smith about her tireless search for her daughter over the past eight years, how she played a vital role in keeping the investigation alive and her thoughts on Lucas’ conviction.
“20/20” features exclusive interviews with Lauren Suhr, a prosecution witness who, on her own initiative, decided to get close to Lucas to get more information about Schelling; Jeff Chostner, the District Attorney on the case; Kevin Torres, the lead investigator; Captain Eric Bravo, Commander in the Pueblo Police Department and more.
The special episode also reports on how scammers targeted Saxton via social media, pretending to reveal Schelling’s whereabouts in exchange for thousands of dollars; how the original “20/20” report reinvigorated the criminal investigation; and the details of Lucas’ trial.
