Here’s another interesting story I wrote something on almost exactly a year ago that has sprung back to life again. CBS News will be running a piece called “The Dark Side of Paradise” on its award-winning program, 48 Hours, about the murder and disappearance of two cruising sailors in Panama in January last year. You can check out a trailer for the show at this link here (sorry, CBS won’t let me embed it). And, of course, you can refresh your recollection by re-reading what I wrote last February.
I was going to do a bunch of online research to see if I could find out if the body of murder victim Don North was ever discovered, and to see what’s happened with Javier Martin (photo up top), the Spanish sailor arrested for murdering both North and Jean-Pierre Bouhard (whose body was recovered). But I figured instead I’d just watch the show tonight.
If you’re curious about any of this, I recommend you do the same. The program is scheduled to air at 10:00 p.m. Eastern time.
As an extra teaser, I will share this, a video I found of Panamanian authorities going aboard Don North’s boat last February as they searched for clues:
