A BRAT, A BATMAN COLLECTOR, FILTHY RICH AND DEAD - WHO KILLED THE MIAMI HOTEL HEIR? "48 HOURS: CRAZY LOVE" SATURDAY, JULY 13, 2013, 10:00 PM, ET/PT

Troy Roberts and 48 HOURS return to the investigation into the murder of Miami hotel heir Benji Novack, who had high-end toys and cash, yet ended up dead, in an updated edition of "Crazy Love" to be broadcast June 13, 2013 (10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

Novack was born into Miami hotel royalty. In the 1960s, his parents, Bernice and Benjamin Sr., owned Miami's famed hotspot, the Fontainebleau Hotel, once the stomping grounds of folks like Frank Sinatra and John F. Kennedy. But when the family lost their fortune and the hotel, friends say Benji was inspired to start his own business planning conferences for corporate clients, which earned him millions. Outside of work, Novack had a yacht, a massive Batman memorabilia collection - including a replica of the Batmobile from the hit TV show - a wife and a mistress.

Friends say, Novack was also known as a brat who ruled his empire by fear, so he had a lot of enemies police could turn to when on July 12, 2009, he was found bound and bludgeoned to death in a Rye Brook, N.Y., hotel room. Could it have been his wife, Narcy Novack, his girlfriend or any number of business contacts he upset along the way?

This updated rebroadcast of "Crazy Love" includes an interview with Rebecca Bliss, who carried on an 18-month affair with Benji while he was married to Narcy Novack. The investigation into the murder would also lead to Miami where a reporter began to question the death of Benji Novack's mother, Bernice, which had initially been ruled an accident. Or was it?

48 HOURS: "Crazy Love" is produced by Chuck Stevenson and Dena Goldstein. Alan Miller, Bobby Orozovich and Bruce Spiegel are the editors. Linda Martin is the update producer. Anthony Batson is the senior broadcast producer. Susan Zirinsky is the senior executive producer.

"Crazy Love" is the second part of a 48 HOURS double feature to be broadcast on July 13, 2013. Up first at 9:00 PM ET/PT is an updated rebroadcast of "Chasing the Barefoot Bandit," which revolves around the manhunt for teenager Colton Harris-Moore, best known as the "Barefoot Bandit," whose international crime spree made him an unlikely folk hero. He was dubbed the "Barefoot Bandit" because he committed the crimes while not wearing shoes and left behind notes with footprints traced in chalk.
