230: Adrienne (The Murder of Adrienne Shelly)

Adrienne Shelly was a writer and actress best known for writing and co-starring the film Waitress, which was later turned into a Broadway musical. But on the evening of November 1st, 2006 she was fond dead--hanging in the bathroom of her West Village, NYC office. The initial assumption by investigators was suicide, but her husband Andy didn't believe it and pushed the cops to work the case like a murder. Ultimately Andy was right, and the killer was found. But why did he do it? This documentary examines both the murder and the extraordinary life of the woman who was killed.
