48 Hours – August 21 2021 – The 30-Year Secret – The Tracey Harris Murder – Saturday – CBS

48 HOURS and Maureen Maher report on the life of Tracey Harris, a hard-working, loving young mother from Ozark, Ala. and the true crime investigation into her 1990 murder in an encore of “The 30-Year Secret – The Tracey Harris Murder” to be broadcast Saturday, Aug. 21 (10:00 PM ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. Nearly 30 years later, the man long suspected as her killer was arrested. But just before trial, a confession turned the case upside down. Harris disappeared on March 7, 1990. A week later, her body was found in a nearby river. Her death was ruled a homicide. From the start, Carl Harris appeared to be the only suspect. They had recently divorced and he had a girlfriend and witnesses reported that he abused Tracey. Harris, though, maintained he had nothing to do with Tracey’s death and denied allegations of abuse. Saturday’s broadcast includes the first TV interview with the woman, Dawn Beasley, who changed the outcome of the case; the longtime suspect, Harris’ ex-husband Carl Harris; and their daughter, Carolyn Aznavour, who grew up believing her father killed her mom; and the prosecutors who learned of the shocking secret that finally led to solving the case.
