48 HOURS and correspondent Peter Van Sant investigate the disappearance of Lori Ann Slesinski and the case against her killer, Rick Ennis, in an encore of “A Man with a Past,” to be broadcast Saturday, June 24 (10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network and streaming on Paramount+. Slesinski, a recent college graduate, disappeared in 2006 from Auburn, Ala. Four days after she went missing, her car was found engulfed in flames on a deserted street. Police believed Rick Ennis was the last person with her before she disappeared. But Ennis moved away from Auburn after he talked with police. It would take 12 years before authorities made a case against him. In 2018, Ennis was charged with Slesinski’s murder, even though her body was never found. It was not the first time Ennis was charged with such a horrific crime. In 1993, when he was 12 years old, Ennis murdered his parents. But did he kill Lori Slesinski?
