48 Hours “Who Killed Jonelle Matthews?” Summary

Richard Schlesinger goes inside the investigation of the disappearance of Jonelle Matthews – and the trial of former Idaho gubernatorial candidate Steven Dana Pankey, for her murder – in an encore of 48 HOURS: “Who Killed Jonelle Matthews?” to be broadcast Saturday, August 6 (9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network and streaming on Paramount+.

Matthews vanished from her family’s Greeley, Colo., home five days before Christmas in 1984. The only evidence left behind were shoeprints in the snow – shoeprints someone tried to erase with a garden rake. The case drew national attention. Matthews was featured on milk cartons with other missing children. Then more than three decades later, in 2019, Matthews’ body was found by a crew digging a pipeline. In 2020, Pankey, who says he never met Matthews, was charged with murder after repeatedly making public statements that inserted him into the case, including drawing up a list of persons of interest with his own name on it. But he denies any involvement in her death.
