In a two-hour episode this Friday, "Dateline NBC" examines the details behind a story that made headlines in Canada in February of 2010, when a top ranking officer in the Canadian military pleaded guilty to an astonishing number of predatory crimes, beginning with home break-ins and lingerie theft, and escalating all the way to murder. "Dateline's" Keith Morrison turns the spotlight on Colonel Russell Williams' string of crimes that left women in his patch of Canada terrified. Viewers will be shocked to hear the story of Williams' double life as a straight-laced commander of Canada's largest air force base, with a dangerous sexual obsession.
"Dateline" explores how investigators tracked Williams down by his tire treads, and how they discovered thousands of lurid photographs on the Colonel's own computer. We'll also hear reactions from friends, neighbors, and a former commanding officer of the Canadian air force, who says that Williams' actions have betrayed the military's honor so profoundly that there is not much room for forgiveness.
