A Question of Guilt: The Bakley Murder

Christina Scheier and Bonny Lee Bakley had been best friends since they were kids. "Bonny had set out the goal to be a celebrity when she was very young," says Christina. "She wanted to be on TV and say to all the people growing up, 'Hey everybody, here I am now, now you'll really notice me.'" Ironically, Bonny achieved her lifelong goal only when she died.

The story of how Bonny Lee Bakley ended up in Hollywood, married to a one-time big name star - reads like a movie script. Peter Van Sant reports.
