The broadcast featured correspondent Maureen Maher's report, "The Writing on the Wall," the story of a triple homicide that sent shockwaves through the small town of Columbia, Ill. Christopher Coleman, head of security for well-known televangelist Joyce Meyer, was found guilty of strangling his wife, Sheri, and their two young sons, Gavin and Garett. For months, Coleman had been receiving death threats regarding his involvement in Meyer's ministry, but during their investigation, police found enough evidence to charge Coleman himself with the killings. The broadcast included interviews with investigators, defense and prosecution attorneys and a reporter who covered the case for three years. Maher also spoke with Christopher Coleman, his parents, Sheri's family and friends, and jurors who discovered a crucial piece of evidence during deliberations.
