If you read one of my previous posts regarding Bocas del Toro resident and friend to many cruisers, William “Wild Bill” Holbert, then you’ll probably want to watch Dateline NBC tonight, as they will be airing a one hour special on the confessed serial killer and his partner Laura Michelle Reese.
The program airs tonight, Friday, 22 October 2010, starting at 9:00 pm Eastern Standard Time. Dateline is a two-hour program that runs from 9:00 pm EST until 11:00 pm. The “Wild Bill” segment will be the second hour of the program, from 10:00 pm EST (or starting at 9:00 pm local here in Panama).
Local cruisers can join us in the VIP area of the Superbook Sports Club in Panama City, just across the street from the casino in the Marriott Hotel, to watch the program. The NBC Dateline program normally gets about 6.5 million viewers, so this will be by far the greatest amount of national level exposure this story has received to date.

“There are lots of Panama Cruisers who actually knew “Wild Bill”, and are now thanking their lucky stars they didn’t become one of his victims.”
