  • Endgame
    Episode 12
    Tim Masters is 37 years old, the same age as Peggy Hettrick was when she was murdered in 1987. Hettrick's mutilated, half naked body was discovered in a field in Fort Collins, Colo. and Masters has lived in the shadow of the brutal crime ever since. At the time, Masters, was a teenager with a penchant for knives and drawing graphic images of death and mutilation and he immediately became a suspect, but the case was only circumstantial. Weeks turned into months and months into years, with no arrest. Authorities even planted fake newspaper stories about his imminent arrest in the hopes of goading Masters into doing something incriminating, but to no avail. Then, in 1997 authorities found a new expert witness, one who put a new spin on the little evidence had. More than 10 years after Hettrick's murder, Tim Masters was convicted - the result of what his attorneys consider to be a single-minded, psychologically relentless investigation by an overzealous cop. And Masters' supporters, including some of the investigators who initially pursued him, believe this case was built not on evidence, but on fear and they've set out to prove his innocence. It is a search for answers that would take them around the world and expose stunning new suspects. Why was a doctor, who had been arrested as a sexual offender and lived a few hundred yards from where the body was found, never considered as a suspect? The new investigation would take almost a decade, but would finally reveal shocking new evidence and an astonishing truth that would change everything. Correspondent Susan Spencer reports.moreless

    Kathy Augustine was an ambitious and sometimes controversial politician who worked her way up the rankings of Nevada's government. And with a reputation of being ruthless, she developed a lot of enemies along the way. But were these enemies deadly? In 2004, Augustine became the first state official in Nevada's history to be impeached, when she was found guilty of violating state ethics laws during her 2002 re-election campaign. In 2006, unable to seek a third term as state controller, she ran for state treasurer. But on July 8 Augustine was found unconscious in her home. She died four days later. While a preliminary autopsy found no evidence of a heart attack or other obvious cause of death, the medical examiner did find a suspicious puncture mark. Subsequent toxicology reports confirmed the presence of a powerful drug that paralyzes the body's organs and muscles while leaving the mind conscious. Proof, detectives say, that Augustine had been murdered. Despite many political enemies, Augustine's family was convinced her fourth husband, Chaz Higgs, was responsible. Claiming that the couple's marriage was rocky, they assert that Higgs, eight years her junior, was cheating on his wife. And as a critical care nurse, Higgs had the knowledge and access to the same drug found in Augustine's system. Authorities charged him with first degree murder. Is Chaz Higgs capable of murder? Or, was Kathy Augustine the victim of her corrupt political opponents? 48 Hours correspondent Troy Roberts reports dramatic new developments.moreless
