Randy Stone’s homicide attracts 48 Hours Mystery and Dateline NBC
A pastor is accused of killing one of his parishioners after having an affair with the church-goer’s wife, then giveing the eulogy at the dead man’s funeral? Of course the national media is all over the Randy Stone story. Duh.
David Love, the former pastor of New Hope Baptist Church in Independence, made his first appearance in court yesterday since his extradition from South Carolina on a charge of first-degree murder. Love, 50, allegedly shot and killed Stone on March 31. Rumors are that there’s a “bidding war” between the two most salacious true-crime shows, Dateline NBC and CBS’s 48 Hours Mystery, for the inside track on all the nasty details.
