Fortune Family Ties World Of Survival Win Lose Or Draw Night Court A-Taam It looks as if that old black magic got ahold of the NBC publicity department Promoting a segment on tonight’s episode of Unsolved Mysteries (at 7 on WMC-TV Channel S) the NBC publicists say it deals with “the search for an Arkansas lady who is believed to have killed her hnsband in a ritualistic witchcraft slaying” “That's so inaccurate That makes me crazy” says Cynthia TOM WALTER TelevisJonRadlo is senior segment producer for Cosgrove-Meurer Productions of Los Angeles which produces Unsolved Mysteries The case Involves the Oct 19 1986 killing of Charlie Sigmin a Blytheville Ark telephone lineman who was found dead in the Caruthersville Mo home of his estranged wife Ann Authorities are searching for her and a male companion described by investigators as her live-in boyfriend The NBC publicity mentions a voodoo doll Mrs Sigmin reportedly placed on Sigmin's pillow just before he was killed "No no 1 think they got a little carried away with that' Ms Buzzard said “The death is totally unrelated to witchcraft” Pemiscot County (Mo) Pros Atty Mike Hazel said he could neither support nor deny NBC's -claim about the doll and other law enforcement officials refused to comment “The problem with the voodoo doll is it's all kind of secondhand and it's information that's been passed along among Charlie's mends” Ms Buzzard said “None of his friends actually saw it but there's a lot of animosity among them toward his wife A lot of it’s speculation and we can’t say she was into witchcraft” Cosgrove-Meurer hired Theatrics Etc a Memphis casting agency to supply the actors that re-create the events leading up to the slaying Six local actors were hired and Mrs Sigmin is played by Molly Posey who lives In Jonesboro Ark Tess Carrier who runs the casting agency said the producers sought actors who looked like the characters they would be playing She said that made her job easier “Most of the time producers don't know specifically what they're looking for” she said David Edwards the actor who plays the boyfriend isn’t even a professional known to Theatrics because his children are on file at the agency They had requested his picture too because they thought his features were ini Their hunch came throui when it turned out he could made up to look like the boyfriend SOMETHING'S
