Entitled The Day Jennifer Disappeared, the broadcast also features the first network interview with Connecticut Chief State’s Attorney Richard Colangelo, who discusses where Jennifer might be and if her estranged husband, Fotis Dulos, might have had something to do with her disappearance. He tells NBC News’ Dennis Murphy: “You know, I have theories. I have ideas. There's a lotta property up there that Mr. Dulos owns, you know, in Farmington, Avon area.”

The broadcast also features the latest developments in the case and a comprehensive look at the last day Jennifer was seen alive. Fotis, who died by suicide earlier this year, was previously charged with capital murder, murder and kidnapping. He pleaded not guilty and denied having anything to do with her disappearance. Dateline previously reported on this case last year.
