It was a sensational crime - a successful Friendswood dentist repeatedly runs over her cheating husband with her Mercedes as he leaves a Nassau Bay hotel with his mistress.

And the private investigator she’d hired to trail him captures the entire attack in a now-infamous video.

In a new episode of ‘The Evidence Room’ premiering Wednesday on the KPRC 2+ livestream, we’re taking a fresh look at the case of Clara Harris, who made headlines internationally in July 2002 for her role in her husband’s death. She was released from prison in 2018 and completed the terms of her probation in February.

Harris is 65 now. She agreed to talk with KPRC 2′s Amy Davis and shared new information about that night that she feels never came out during trial.

“I followed the story, not as a reporter because I wasn’t here in Houston yet, but just followed it in the news.” said Davis. “And so I thought I knew all the details.”

‘The Evidence Room’ brings a fresh perspective to some of the most notorious crimes in the history of the Houston area, through unprecedented access to the Harris County criminal archives. From confession tapes to crime scene photographs, to the murder weapons themselves - these are criminal cases you may think you know, but you’ve never seen them quite like this.

“The level of true crime filmmaking is unmatched in this series. It is on the level of classics like Cold Case Files and Forensic Files, as it is made with real access to investigators/evidence and with unseen video/photos from the crimes and trials.”
