TOO FAT TO KILL?

One of the World's Heaviest Women Is Accused of Capital Murder in TLC's "HALF-TON KILLER?"

[Los Angeles, CA] - TLC explores the controversial and shocking murder mystery case of Mayra Rosales in the hour-long special HALF-TON KILLER? airing Wednesday, October 10th at 9/8c. In a Texas border town, along a major corridor known for drugs and human trafficking, a young boy has been murdered. Mayra Rosales, a woman bedridden from obesity, claimed she accidently crushed and killed her two year-old nephew. Immediately the case took fire - the media wanted to bring her to justice, citizens demanded their tax dollars go elsewhere, and the judicial system scrambled for a solution.

One man, Mayra's attorney Sergio Valdez, realized something was wrong: the boy's injuries appeared to be no accident. Furthermore, Mayra could barely move: deathly-ill from pneumonia, and weighing in at 1,100 pounds, she required 10 men, and an extra-large ambulance to even reach the hospital. Thus began an investigation into Mayra and her family's suspicious behavior that revealed a story far more sinister than anyone realized. With exclusive access to Mayra and interviews with Sergio and various experts, HALF-TON KILLER? examines this puzzling case, and its disturbing outcome. Murder comes in all sizes in this compelling true story of law, love, and lies.

TLC's HALF-TON KILLER? airs Wednesday, October 10th at 9/8c. The special is produced by Meglaomedia, Inc and Jonathan Nowzaradan serves as Executive Producer.
