This week’s edition of ABC’s 20/20 will uncover how a workplace romance turned fatal for a Baton Rouge “Teacher of the Year” mother.
- After a passerby found a three-year-old girl with blood on her feet wandering alone in a Louisiana parking lot, authorities embarked on a multi-day search for her missing mother: Lyntell Washington, a Baton Rouge educator who was voted Teacher of the Year. When authorities found the pregnant teacher shot in the head, they were left with a cryptic clue from her toddler, who said: “Mr. Robbie” hurt her mother.
- A new episode of 20/20 unpacks the shocking crime, including how the investigation led authorities to identify one of the assistant principals at her school, Dr. Robert Marks, as the killer.
- Contributing anchor Deborah Roberts reports the two-hour program, which features exclusive interviews with Washington’s close friend and former supervisor, Jamicia Pink-Fisher, and two jurors who served on the murder trial. It also includes never-before-seen recordings of police interviews with the suspect, the 3-year-old who was an eyewitness, and exclusive security camera footage.
- 20/20 also has interviews with Leslie Parms, who first found Washington’s young daughter abandoned in the parking lot; District Attorney Tony Clayton; Iberville Parish Sheriff Brett Stassi; and Washington’s best friend, Melissa Mason.
- 20/20 airs on Friday, October 7th (9:01-11:00 p.m. EDT) on ABC, streaming the next day on Hulu.
