Oxygen, the destination for high-quality crime programming, debuts a new two-hour special “The Case Died With Her” on Sunday, December 6 at 7pm ET/PT, produced by Pulse Films and BuzzFeed Studios. In this harrowing special, legal commentator and former prosecutor Loni Coombs dives into the shocking case of Emilie Morris. A young woman in her 30s, Emilie met a tragic and, to her family, mysterious death before she was due to appear in court regarding her charges against Jim Wilder for sexually inappropriate behavior she experienced as a minor.
Drawn from extensive reporting in 2018 by then BuzzFeed News national reporter Jessica Testa, viewers will get a front row seat with exclusive sit down interviews with Emilie’s sister Andrea and mother Joan on their emotional crusade in gaining understanding, closure, and justice. While various systems failed Emilie, her family is dedicated to shedding light on the effects of child sexual abuse with hopes of making things right for her and for women everywhere.
