Dateline: The Early Shift (NBC Friday January 19, 2024)

Dateline

In the upcoming episode of NBC’s long-running investigative news program “Dateline,” titled “The Early Shift,” viewers will delve into the riveting murder trial of David Dooley and the search for justice surrounding the tragic death of Michelle Mockbee. The episode is set to air on Friday, January 19, 2024, at 1:00pm.

Michelle Mockbee was a mother of two who worked at the Thermo Fisher Scientific plant in May 2012 when she met her untimely demise. David Dooley, an outside contractor at the facility, was convicted of her murder in 2014 and received a life sentence. However, in 2017, a new trial was ordered after it was discovered that crucial evidence that could have supported Dooley’s defense had been withheld.

The second trial commenced in February 2019, with the prosecution presenting circumstantial evidence to establish Dooley’s guilt. Meanwhile, Dooley’s defense team put forth alternative theories suggesting that other individuals involved with Mockbee—such as her husband and coworkers—could have had both motive and opportunity to commit the crime.

After less than seven hours of deliberation, Dooley was once again found guilty and sentenced to a total of 43 years behind bars.

“The Early Shift” promises a deep exploration of this complex case as “Dateline” provides an insider’s look into both sides of the courtroom drama. The episode features interviews with Mockbee’s family members, who share their harrowing journey for justice and how they have grown stronger together throughout this arduous ordeal.

With its reputation for thorough investigative reporting and compelling storytelling, “Dateline” continues to captivate audiences by shedding light on real-life mysteries and high-profile criminal cases. By highlighting cases like David Dooley’s trial for Michelle Mockbee’s murder, the show helps foster public awareness about criminal justice issues while providing viewers with an intimate understanding of both victims’ stories and the legal processes involved.

Tune in to NBC on Friday, January 19, 2024, at 1:00pm for this thought-provoking episode of “Dateline” as it examines the trial of David Dooley and delves into the ongoing search for justice in Michelle Mockbee’s tragic murder.
