“48 HOURS” INVESTIGATES THE DEATH OF A HOLLYWOOD THERAPIST AND POPULAR AUTHOR IN AN ENCORE OF “THE LIFE AND DEATH OF AMIE HARWICK”

Saturday, August 29

In life, family therapist and author Amie Harwick devoted herself to helping others work through their personal struggles. Her shocking death put a spotlight on domestic violence. Her former fiancé, Drew Carey, is among those calling for updated laws that will ensure the safety of victims, something Harwick was passionate about in her practice. Erin Moriarty and 48 HOURS go inside the investigation of what happened leading up to Harwick’s death, and talk with those who were closest to her in the final weeks of her life, in an encore of “The Life and Death of Amie Harwick” to be broadcast Saturday, August 29 (10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

In the early morning hours on Feb. 15, Los Angeles police officers responding to a call of a “woman screaming” found 38-year-old Harwick lying on the ground, battered and unresponsive beneath the third-floor balcony of her Hollywood home. According to police, inside her apartment there was evidence of a struggle and forced entry. Harwick was transported to a hospital, where she later died from blunt-force injuries to the head and torso, according to the Los Angeles County Department of Medical Examiner-Coroner. The medical examiner also indicated that Harwick had been strangled before falling over the balcony. A trail of evidence soon led homicide investigators to Harwick’s ex-boyfriend, 41-year-old Gareth Pursehouse. Four days after Harwick’s death, Pursehouse was arrested and charged with murder. He has pleaded not guilty.

The hour features Moriarty’s revealing, emotional interviews with friends who opened up about her fears of abuse and how her work deeply helped others. The broadcast also included people who knew Pursehouse and have first-hand knowledge of how he felt about Harwick.
