CBS News' 48 HOURS: "Secrets of the River" (R) was Saturday's #1 program in adults 25-54, the demographic that matters most to those who advertise in news, as well as viewers and households, according to Nielsen live plus same day ratings for June 8, 2013.

"Secrets of the River" featured Peter Van Sant's report on the murder of Mackenzie Cowell, an aspiring model and beauty school student, who in February 2010 disappeared and was found dead four days later alongside the Columbia River. An investigation by an unprecedented task force of FBI, state police and local authorities eventually led to Cowell's beauty school classmate, Chris Wilson. Wilson was charged with murder and hired high-profile attorney John Henry Browne, who is currently representing Sgt. Robert Bales through his guilty plea of murdering civilians in Afghanistan. Wilson agreed to a plea bargain, but a year later attempted to withdraw the plea, saying he didn't understand the consequences. Just hours before this broadcast, a judge rejected the request.
