Sharon Bloom slaying to be featured on "Motives and Murders" Saturday
The murder of 3M computer analyst Sharon Bloom will be the subject of Investigation Discovery's "Motives and Murders: Cracking the Case" Saturday night.
One day in November 1989, Bloom never returned from work. Her body turned up in a cornfield 10 days later.
Police suspected Bloom's co-worker Stephan James Zanter to be the killer, but didn't have enough evidence to convict.
Investigators finally linked Zanter to the murder a decade later through advancements in DNA technology. In 2003, he admitted to beating Bloom to death with a hammer, after she confronted him about harassment.
The episodae airs at 8 p.m. Saturday on Investigation Discovery (not to be confused with the Discovery Channel).
