Reported by Jim Axelrod, the broadcast explores the life and death of Jackie Vandagriff, whose body was discovered in a weeded area near a footpath next to Grapevine Lake, in Grapevine, Texas, on Sept. 14, 2016. Police soon uncovered video of the man she was last seen with in some college bars in Denton, Texas. That man was Bryant.
Vandagriff had met him by chance after walking into a bar looking for a job. She had no idea that he had a history of stalking Mathis, his ex-girlfriend, who lived on campus across the street.
The case raises the question of whether Vandagriff was targeted because she resembled Bryant’s ex-girlfriend.
CBS 48 Hours: “The Murder of Jackie Vandagriff” Preview | August 14. * There have been major changes to our events calendar due to the coronavirus pandemic. We started this calendar in 2018 with pro wrestling events. Then added some other live sports and entertainment events. The goals were to help sell live tickets for all kinds of events. Also, to help fans finds events and tickets easier. Then the virus happened and live events stopped for a while. So we had to change things up. We’ve since added and will continue to add, many televised events. And now that live events have returned, we’re also back to adding them. The calendar will be a bit of a mess, with tv shows, trailers, live events, etc. But there’s a ton of information on there. Most live events have ticket links, venue information, dates and times. But some events have more. Some have a lot more and are basically event previews. It depends on the information available at the time we post the event. And if we are able to update that event, etc. Some days have one to three events and some have over twenty on the same day.
