Show to retell infamous O.C. murder case

One of Orange County's most notorious murder cases will be retold on TV Monday, when the Investigation Discovery channel revisits the murder of Denise Huber on "Unusual Suspects."

Huber, 23, was abducted late at night on the side of the 73 Freeway after she got a flat tire in 1991. She was on her way home from a concert and less than three miles from her Newport Beach home when John Joseph Famalaro pulled over and took her.

Her parents led a nationwide search that proved fruitless until 1994, when police discovered her nude, beaten and handcuffed body inside a rental truck's freezer in Arizona. The truck belonged to Famalaro and was overdue to be returned.

Famalaro had abducted Huber and taken her to a Laguna Hills warehouse he'd been living in. There he sexually assaulted her and killed her with a roofing tool.

He was sentenced to death in 1997.

Investigation Discovery is part of the Discovery Channel family. With Direct TV, it is on channel 285. The show is scheduled to air at 7 p.m.
