Teen who made headlines for killing family and suing their estate gets another 15 minutes of fame
Dateline NBC will be airing an interview this evening with Justine Winters, the Montana teenager who made headlines last year for killing a pregnant mom and her 13-year-old son during a failed suicide attempt. What Dateline does not mention in its teaser (as of now, at least) is that Winters later filed suit against the deceased mother’s estate for, among other things “lack of capacity to enjoy [her] life.”
Winters was driving at a speed of 86 miles per hour, not wearing a seatbelt, and texting her ex-boyfriend of her plans to crash her vehicle when she struck pregnant Erin Thompson and her son Caden.
“Crossing the Line” airs at 9 p.m. EST.
