The murder and dismemberment of Lauren Giddings, which has attracted its share of attention from cable television docudramas in the years since the 2011 slaying, will be the subject of an upcoming episode of “Dateline NBC.”
A TV production crew along with the popular newsmagazine’s correspondent Keith Morrison visited Macon in April and spoke to several locals familiar with the case, including police and prosecutors.
The one-hour program is scheduled to air on NBC the night of June 8.
