“48 Hours: Last Seen in Breckenridge” Airs This Saturday
Watch a Preview
Award-winning correspondent Natalie Morales will make her investigative debut on CBS News’ critically acclaimed true-crime series 48 HOURS on Saturday, Nov. 19 (10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network and streaming on Paramount+.
Morales’ first in-depth reporting for CBS News focuses on an investigation into the murders of two young women, Annette Schnee, 21, and Bobbie Jo Oberholtzer, 29, near the resort ski town of Breckenridge, Colo. Detectives were initially able to link the two 1982 murders through an orange sock found near Oberholtzer’s crime scene and a matching sock found on Schnee. The case went cold until investigators ran DNA recovered from evidence through a public genealogy database and got a match. In a bizarre turn of events, investigators would learn that the killer had been rescued by a local fire chief from a snow-covered mountain pass the very same night he dumped the bodies of the two women.
“The 48 HOURS team is at the top of their game and the best in the business of true-crime reporting,” Morales says. “It has been a dream working with the 48 HOURS family and on this story, which has so many unusual twists and turns.”
