48 Hours: Unsolved Murder of Eva Kay Wenal
Some investigators in Gwinnett County, Georgia, have called Eva Kay Wenal’s 2008 murder the most brutal they’ve ever seen. Now, 48 Hours is asking the audience to help investigate.
Wenal, then 60, was found in a pool of blood with her throat cut in the foyer of the home she shared with husband and real estate developer Hal Wenal. The house showed no signs of forced entry and no valuables or jewelry were taken. Hal Wenal was cleared as a suspect by police. He offered a $250,000 reward for information leading to the capture of his wife’s killer. He died of a heart attack in 2010 at age 74.
Months after the murder, someone who claimed to be the killer sent the Atlanta Journal-Constitution a confession letter assembled with characters cut from magazine pages. The author claimed he or she and Kay Wenal were in love, and that she had promised the author they could be together.
On Jan. 28, reporter Erin Moriarty will take viewers through the details of Kay Wenal’s life and murder case on “Solve this Case: Who Killed Kay Wenal?” Moriarty speaks to multiple investigators who worked the case, as well as Wenal’s sister, to help piece together the story.
The show will air at 10 p.m., Saturday, January 28.
