The broadcast date of a TV show about the life and death of Diane Fortenberry of Osakis, which had been scheduled for Tuesday, Feb. 2, has been changed.
The show, which is part of the Investigative Discovery Channel’s TV series, “Murder in the Heartland,” will now be available for streaming on a new subscription-based app, Discovery+ according to the production company.
The first few episodes for season three of Murder in the Heartland aired on Tuesday nights but the rest will be available anytime through the Discovery+ app (which is similar to Netflix or Hulu) starting on Tuesday Feb. 9.
Fortenberry, 51, was killed on May 20, 2011, when she returned to her family’s home in rural Osakis during her lunch break and caught Alexandria's Jeffery Brooks in the middle of a robbery. Brooks, 54, attacked Diane and killed her by striking her with a blunt instrument. He was sentenced to serve 35 years in prison in June of 2012.
Murder in the Heartland explores murder cases through the collective point-of-view of a Middle American town and its residents, according to the show’s website. Every story documents a town and people in the heart of the country, and the crime that tore through it.
According to the website, “What unravels over the course of the episode is that these townspeople are not only our storytellers, but they also hold the clues to the puzzle that has forever changed their lives and how they understand their home.”
