ABC 20/20 Tonight, Friday (October 28, 2022) Two-Hour Program Features Exclusive Interviews With Jailhouse Informants Who Helped Authorities Bring Former Arkansas State Senator Linda Collins-Smith’s Killer to Justice
This episode of “ABC 20/20” airs tonight October 28 at 9PM ET. When authorities found well-known former Arkansas State Senator Linda Collins-Smith murdered outside her home, rumors began to fly. Could it have been her ex-husband, a former judge, after the pair went through a contentious divorce with millions of dollars on the line? Had Collins-Smith made a fatal enemy along her meteoric rise in state politics? Or was it someone in her inner circle?
In a new “20/20,” ABC News senior national affairs correspondent and “20/20” contributing anchor Deborah Roberts reports on the murder, unpacking how friends and family initially wrongly suspected ex-husband Philip Smith of murdering Collins-Smith after their divorce. The program highlights the shock to the local community when police arrested Becky O’Donnell, Collins-Smith’s best friend and business manager, as she was on her way to the memorial service and explains how footage from security cameras installed by Collins-Smith ultimately led to O’Donnell’s conviction..
