A release from the network teased, “A chance encounter on the Pacific Coast Highway with a woman he first spoke to in a jail cell leads ‘Dateline’s’ Keith Morrison to reexamine the mysterious death of Las Vegas casino magnate Ted Binion. Friday’s new broadcast features never-before-seen footage from interviews with insiders close to the case.”

Binion’s ex-girlfriend Sandy Murphy, former Las Vegas Mayor Oscar Goodman and investigator Wayne Petersen were among those recently interviewed for the show.

Binion, the son of gaming giant and Horseshoe founder Benny Binion, was found dead on a mattress in his Las Vegas estate on Palomio Lane.  Drug paraphernalia was found at the scene and the manner of his death was reported to be a combination of Xanax and heroin.

Murphy and her then-boyfriend, Rick Tabish, were initially convicted of murder and burglary in Binion’s death, but were later granted a new trial and acquitted on the murder charges.

Prosecutors had argued that the pair conspired to steal Binion's vast wealth composed of between $7 million and $14 million in silver, cash and Horseshoe Casino chips.

In a preview clip, Murphy says, “He liked to bury things and do things that eccentric cowboys do from the old-school Las Vegas.” She also tearfully adds, “I don’t think anyone could possibly understand what it’s like to find someone that you love, not knowing whether they are dead or alive.”
