A HIGH SCHOOL CINDERELLA STORY THAT ENDED WITH MURDER,
AIRING ON ABC NEWS' "20/20," FRIDAY, SEPT. 25
Why did high school outcast Christine Paolilla, who was transformed from an ugly duckling into "Miss Irresistible," turn on the very girls who made her popular? On a hot, quiet July 2003 afternoon, four recent high school graduates, including Paolilla's two best friends and the most popular girls in school, Rachel Koloroutis and Tiffany Rowell, were gunned down at a home in a Houston, Texas suburb. Police were baffled by the murders, which were seemingly random. But as police dug deeper into an investigation that dragged on for three years, they discovered that their killer or killers might be closer to home than anyone ever expected. Was Christine Paolilla responsible for murdering Rachel, Tiffany and two others? ABC News Correspondent Mary Fulginiti's report airs on "20/20," FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 25 (10:00-11:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network. The hour report includes an exclusive interview with Paolilla's parents and the victims' families.
"20/20" is anchored by Elizabeth Vargas. David Sloan is executive producer.
