Murder in Lehigh Valley Keith Morrison Investigates March 5 on ID


On December 15, 1994, Joann Katrinak and her three-month-old son Alex disappeared without a trace from their home in Catasauqua, Pa. Patricia Rorrer, the ex-girlfriend of Katrinak’s husband, was convicted of the murders and has maintained her innocence for 20 years while serving life behind bars. Today, her attorney says not only was his client wrongfully convicted, but she was framed.

An appeal pending in Pennsylvania Superior Court that includes allegations of a frame-up, coercion by the District Attorney’s office, misidentification of a witness and evidence tampering, all of which the state vehemently denies. Veteran journalist and “Dateline NBC” correspondent Keith Morrison revisits the crimes in an all-new special “MURDER IN LEHIGH VALLEY: KEITH MORRISON INVESTIGATES,” airing Sunday, March 5 with back-to-back premieres at 8/7c and 9/8c, and features an exclusive phone interview in which Rorrer speaks out from prison for the first time ever.
