48 Hours "The Devil's Twin" averaged 5.38 million viewers, a 1.2/04 with adults 25-54 - the demographic that matters most to those who advertise in news - and a 0.8/03 in adults 18-49.

"The Devil's Twin" featured Erin Moriarty and 48 Hours investigation into the murder of Heather DeWild, who went missing in 2003 after a visit to her estranged husband Dan DeWild's house. Heather's body was found six weeks after the visit to Dan DeWild's home by a road worker moving dirt. Police suspected her estranged husband, but there was no murder weapon, no fingerprints and no blood in the house where police believed she was killed. The case grew cold until a new district attorney was encouraged by Heather's parents to reinvestigate the case. Eight years after Heather's body was found, Dan and his identical twin brother David DeWild were arrested for her murder. In a twist, prosecutors learned that before Heather disappeared, the DeWild brothers had been watching TV crime dramas and forensic shows.
