Investigation Discovery will air an episode of "Blood Relatives" Friday night that tells the story the murder of Nancy Britt, a Cary resident and former Wake County Teacher of the Year, who was slain while visiting her sister in Lumberton in 2003.
Nancy's husband Myron Britt was convicted of murdering her in 2009 for the insurance money.
"Blood Relatives" presents a highly dramatized retelling of true crimes, with a "Desperate Housewives" type narration and score. They use actors to recreate dramatic scenes and elements of the crime.
A press release from Discovery describes Cary as a "beautiful seaside town," but it doesn't appear to be presented as a seaside town in the show. The town -- or at least the stock footage of some town -- does look very beautiful, though!
The episode includes interviews with Donnie Douglas, a neighbor and reporter; Johnson Britt, the Robeson County District Attorney who prosecuted the case; Steve Sutton, the lead investigator on the case (now retired); Robin Burcell, a crime writer; and Bryan Mims, a news editor at WRAL who reported on the case.
The episode airs at 9 p.m. on Investigation Discovery.
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 channel 192 on Dish Network.
