When he first spoke to Mesa County deputies more than 16 years ago, Michael Blagg called himself a born-again Christian whose life was “open as a book” to investigate.
In the years since, the now-55-year-old has been convicted of murdering his wife while she was sleeping.
His conviction was thrown out nearly a decade later after one of the jurors was found guilty of lying on her jury questionnaire about being a victim of domestic violence – one of the key tenets of the prosecution’s case.
Blagg has always maintained his innocence.
And he still remains a person of interest in the death of his young daughter, who went missing at the same time as her mother … and whose body has still never been found.
Starting next week, Blagg will once again face a jury – this time in Jefferson County – and his case will likely once again garner media attention from around the country.
