Zumot case on Dateline NBC

Original post made by resident, Downtown North, on Jul 24, 2011

Anyone see the Dateline NBC show about the Jennifer Schipsi murder on Friday? I did not follow the trial when it happened, so this is all I really know about it. How accurate was the show? I thought it made Zumot look like a conman who was hiding something, but the whole show was kind of sleazy and manipulative.

Bummer - I missed it! Maybe they're rerun it. Thanks for mentioning it. I was sure they'd do one, given that they're young, she was attractive & that there were some lurid aspects to the case.

You can probably find a video of the show on the NBC web site. Broadcast date was July 22 (last Friday).

Didn't the Weekly have a lengthy article (special feature) on the subject several months ago? - I thought that article covered every possible aspect of the sad case.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
