Saturday's broadcast featured Peter Van Sant and 48 HOURS's investigation into the death of a Texas businessman with a taste for bondage and the overriding question of whether he was killed by an intruder, someone he loved or by his own hand. The investigation into what happened would uncover a web of strained relationships, allegations of extramarital affairs and plenty of potential suspects - many of whom feared the victim, Greg Williams. It is also a case that was upended when the key witness - the victim's wife, Michele Williams - changed her version of events in a 48 Hours interview.
Van Sant and the 48 Hours team pieced together the death of Greg Williams and the investigation into what happened through interviews with Michele; her sons, Lee and Andrew; her sister, Laura; Michele's current boyfriend, Gene Wallis; Claire St. Amant, managing editor of the website CultureMap Dallas and a CBS News consultant; and Greg Williams' ex-wife, Kathy Williams.
