Compared to the same night last year, 48 HOURS MYSTERY was up +9% in households and even in both adults 25-54 and adults 18-49.

The broadcast featured correspondent Peter Van Sant's report, "Mystery on Twin Peaks Drive," the story of a mother's quest for justice after her daughter's death was ruled a suicide. Barb Thompson refused to believe that her daughter, Ronda Reynolds, killed herself and launched her own investigation, enlisting the help of renowned true-crime writer Ann Rule. Rule, who ultimately wrote a bestseller based on her extensive work on the case, told Van Sant what she thought really happened to Ronda. Additionally, the broadcast featured interviews with Ronda's former husband, Ron Reynolds, and stepson Jonathan, who have both endured public scrutiny for their alleged involvement in Ronda's death. Van Sant also spoke with several law enforcement officials, who expressed their opposing views on the cause of death.
