CBS ’48 Hours’ Episode Guide (Oct. 8): The Deaths of Julie Kibuishi and Sam Herr Investigated

“48 Hours: Killer Performance” (10/08/16) – A young woman is shot dead. It looked like she was killed by a friend. Her killer was on the run, or so police thought.

Tracy Smith and “48 Hours” investigate the murders of Julie Kibuishi and Sam Herr, and the twisted mystery behind their deaths in “Killer Performance” to be broadcast Oct. 8 (10:00 PM ET/PT), on the CBS Television Network.

“Even the most demented Hollywood writers would not have dreamed up an ending like this,” said Matt Murphy, senior deputy district attorney of Orange County, Calif.

In May 2010, Kibuishi was found dead in Herr’s bedroom. She was shot twice in the head. Someone wrote “All Yours, F— You” on her shirt. Herr’s father found the scene and called police. Given the circumstances of the crime scene, police believed Herr was a suspect. His friends and family thought otherwise. Herr, a former solider in the Army, and Kibuishi, were considered great friends.

However, nothing in this case was what it seemed. With Herr presumed to be on the run, police followed another trail, which led to an up-and-coming actor named Daniel Wozniak, who was engaged to actress Rachel Buffett. Wozniak had a gruesome story to tell.

Indeed, the investigation unfolded like a big-screen mystery, with Wozniak starring in the lead role. Police tracked a string of leads that led to a California theater, through a series of local ATM machines, and ultimately a California courthouse. But could investigators unravel the story and find out exactly what happened to Kibuishi and Herr?

“48 Hours: Killer Performance” is produced by Liza Finley, Gayane Keshishyan Mendez, Jamie Stolz and Chris Young Ritzen. Kat Teurfs is the associate producer. Mead Stone is the producer-editor. Ken Blum, David Spungen, Diana Modica, George Baluzy and Marlon Disla are the editors. Patti Aronofsky is the senior producer. Susan Zirinsky is the senior executive producer.

The above press release was issued by CBS.
