PRESS RELEASE:

"DATELINE NBC" BROADCAST EXCLUSIVE: THE FAMILY OF BARBARA WINN SPEAKS OUT ABOUT THEIR MOTHER'S DEATH FOR THE FIRST TIME IN 27 YEARS TO NBC NEWS' MIKE TAIBBI ON FRIDAY, MAY 23

(New York) - May 20, 2008 - Some say the death of 35-year-old Barbara Winn in the spring of 1981 was murder, and should have been an open and shut case. There was one abused victim, one weapon and one suspect. But soon after her death, authorities ruled there was no crime, and that Winn had taken her own life. Now, 27 years later, the case is in the headlines again. Her family always believed she was murdered, and now, authorities think so too. On Friday, May 23 (9:00 p.m., ET) on "Dateline NBC," NBC News correspondent Mike Taibbi speaks with the Winn family about their long quest for justice, and takes viewers inside the re-investigation of a case that has gripped the twin cities with political undertones that reached the highest levels of the St. Paul Police Department.

For the in-depth report, Taibbi travels to St. Paul Minn., to explore the question that many have been asking for years: why has this taken so long to be solved? In candid and emotional interviews, the Winn family discusses witnessing their mother's death and their dogged fight for justice. The hour-long report also follows Sgt. Bill Snyder as he reinvestigates; searching for new clues and talks with new witnesses. Synder tells "Dateline": "These are good people. These are people who sat and were brushed aside by the system. A system that I worked for and believed in for 33 years and told, go away."

David Corvo is the executive producer of "Dateline NBC."

    DATELINE NBC PRODUCER’S BLOG

    Posted by Patty Bruce

    Below is the link to the Dateline NBC producer's (Dan Slepian) new blog about the documentary "Justice For Barbara". I hope that you will stop by and give him some feedback after you've seen the documentary.

    Unfortunately, very few cases receive national attention. However, if NBC see's that there is a demand for more coverage of "unknown" victims, hopefully, they might consider covering more of them.

    Since most of you have, literally, watched this case unfold, it will be very interesting to know how you feel about the case after watching the documentary.

    I strongly encourage all of you, especially those of you who are in search of justice for your loved one, to submit feed back to the producer.
