Investigation Discovery dips into Fayetteville murder pool once again

Investigation Discovery's newest series, "Most Likely To...", takes an interesting twist on the true crime series: it tells the stories of high school's best and brightest (those voted by their classmates as "Most likely to succeed," etc.) whose lives go way off track.

Tomorrow night's episode, told through dramatic reenactments, is about a a high school superstar from Fayetteville who became a Special Forces officer -- and ended up murdering his mistress's husband.

John Diamond was convicted in 2001 of the 2000 murder of Marty Theer at the behest of Theer's wife Michelle Theer, with whom Diamond was having an affair. Michelle Theer disappeared before she could be indicted, and by the time authorities caught up with her, she had undergone plastic surgery to alter her appearance.

The episode includes interviews with John Diamond's parents, George and Christen Diamond; his sister, Deborah Dvorak; Danilio Dirico, who served with John in the Army; Paul Woolverton, who covered the case for The Fayetteville Observer; Debbie Layton-Tholl, a clinical psychologist; and Gregory Butler, an assistant district attorney.

Investigation Discovery really loves this case because they featured it over a year ago in their series "Sins & Secrets."

The Theer/Diamond episode of "Most Likely To..." airs Wednesday night at 9.

In this area, Investigation Discovery airs on channels 251 and 1251 on Time Warner Cable; channels 285 and 1285 on DirecTV; channels 260 and 1260 on AT&T U-Verse; and 192 on Dish Network.
