Famous Broward Murder Case the Subject of Cable Show

Denise O'Neill's 1995 murder case will be the subject of Friday night's episode of Forensic Files, a program on the cable network TruTV. Broward Sheriff's Office detectives figure to have a starring role.

The show highlights cases in which investigators have to build a case on the forensic evidence they find at a crime scene. In the case of O'Neill, that was the dog leash and electrical cords that were used to bind her. A waitress at Charlie's Crabs in Palm Beach, O'Neill was murdered in West Palm, then dumped in Broward, before her body was found in a Tamarac canal.

Luis Caballero was convicted of her murder and sentenced to death.
