ABC News just announced plans to air a two-hour “20/20” documentary on the story of actress Rebecca Schaeffer, who was gunned down by a stalker almost 30 years ago. The special will air this Friday, April 12, on ABC.
Schaeffer, who was known for her role on the hit comedy series “My Sister Sam,” was shot by an obsessed fan named Robert John Bardo, who showed up at the door of her Los Angeles home and shot her point blank on July 18, 1989, killing her. She was 21.
Bardo was convicted of first-degree murder and sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.
