    “Mother-Putter!” – ABC’s two-hour night of mini-golf kicks off with golf goddess Michelle Wei gracing the “Holey Moley” green as a guest commentator. In the first hour of competition, fan-favorite hole “Dutch Courage” knocks two more contestants off the course with its giant windmills. Elsewhere, “Arc De Trigolf” pits two contestants named Eric against each other – who share not only a name, but also a fashion sense! Then on “Tee’d Off,” we see what color commentator Rob Riggle calls a “classic matchup” when a mom of two whose precompetition ritual includes drinking a glass of champagne goes up against a contestant who isn’t yet old enough to enjoy a glass of champagne. This dynamic pairing needs three head-to-head rounds to name a winner finally. On “Log Roll,” one competitor makes the mistake of attempting to jump over a moving log and later during the round, the same contestant calls on Course Marshall Joe as he challenges the putt count of his opponent ahead of a tiebreaker putt-off. Resident golf-pro and executive producer Stephen Curry pops up in “Behind the Hole” as he muses why there aren’t more “mini” sports.

    Power of the Fanny Pack” It’s the grand “Holey Moley” finale that concludes our supersized season one.

Later on, this challenging hole trips up two more competitors as both fall into the icy water while attempting to get across before their ball does. Meanwhile, Stephen Curry gives contestants advice for “Slip N Putt,” where there is a photo-finish race to the top of the glacier. Over on “The Distractor,” a firefighter contestant looks to come out on top over the fire breathing distraction. In the nail-biting final round of “Mt. Holey Moley,” all three finalists nearly miss the landing from the zipline, which would cost them a one-stroke penalty, but that doesn’t stop one competitor’s hat from flying into the water! Joining in on the season finale fun is none other than gymnast and three-time Olympic medalist Gabby Douglas, who not only helps out commentating but shows off some fun tricks on “Log Roll” as well.

    Airing Friday, August 23, 2019 (10:00 PM-11:00 PM EST) on ABC ABC News’ ‘20/20’ Reports on Woman Who Authorities Maintain Committed Suicide Even Though Her Family Believes She Was Killed by Deputy Sheriff Boyfriend, Airing Friday, Aug. 23 (Rebroadcast)
    Hour Includes Details on Exhumation Conducted by Family and the Surprising Discovery They Say New Autopsy Found
    Suicide or homicide? That question still lingers for Michelle O’Connell’s family and friends nearly nine years after she was shot inside her boyfriend’s St. Augustine, Florida, home and died. Her family alleges she was killed by her boyfriend, deputy sheriff Jeremy Banks, but the Sheriff’s Department maintains that she committed suicide. At the request of Michelle’s family, her body was exhumed and an outside forensic expert conducted a second autopsy for them, which concluded that Michelle’s death was a homicide. However, authorities still maintain she took her own life. ABC News’ Ryan Smith investigates the controversy and reports on developments in the case, including Jeremy’s civil suit against a state investigator that was dismissed last year. “20/20” airs Friday, Aug. 23 (10:00 – 11:00 p.m. EDT), on ABC. (Rebroadcast. ABC OAD: 6/1/18)
    Firearms expert Peter Diaczuk demonstrates where shell casings could have fallen depending on Michelle’s position when she was shot, which also questions the official findings that Michelle shot herself. The hour also features interviews with Michelle’s family, including sister Chrissy O’Connell, mother Patty O’Connell and brother Sean O’Connell; Mindy Fox, Michelle’s friend; Teresa Woodward, Michelle’s former employer; Anne Schindler, reporter who covered the case extensively; Dr. William Anderson, the forensic pathologist who provided the second autopsy for the family; Mac McLeod, Jeremy’s attorney; and Debra Maynard, former St. Johns County deputy sheriff.
    On Sept. 2, 2010, Jeremy called 9-1-1 saying he found Michelle shot inside his home. Although police quickly determined it was a suicide, Michelle’s friends and family insisted that she would not take her own life. After the family pressured the Sheriff’s Department to hand the case over to an outside investigator, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) stepped in and spoke with family and friends who said they believed Jeremy is responsible. They claimed Michelle and Jeremy’s relationship was abusive and that it became violent the night Michelle died as she was packing up to leave Jeremy. The FDLE also uncovered new witnesses, and its investigation pointed toward homicide. Still, the state attorney said they had no criminal case against Jeremy. In his autopsy, Dr. Anderson discovered that Michelle’s jaw had been broken prior to her death. His report to the family states that she was first attacked and incapacitated, and then shot and killed by someone else. But the official cause of death remains suicide. Following the FDLE investigation, Jeremy filed a civil lawsuit against that outside investigator, alleging his civil rights had been violated. But last year, the case was dismissed. Jeremy has never been charged and maintains he was not involved in Michelle’s death. Just months ago, police ruled the death of an independent researcher working on Michelle’s case a homicide. Authorities are currently investigating it.
