Millionaire Hal Wenal was unable to discover the identity of the killer of his wife Kay.

Four years after her death, the unsolved homicide of Lawrenceville's Eva "Kay" Wenal will hit the national stage.

Wenal's case will be featured during tonight's episode of "America's Most Wanted," to be aired at 9 p.m. on Lifetime. It will be part of a special episode dubbed "The Bold, The Bad and The Brazen," a Gwinnett County police spokesman said.

On May 1, 2008, Wenal was found dead in her home on Sugar Lake Court in Lawrenceville. Husband Harold Wenal, who discovered her, has been ruled out as a suspect. He died of a heart attack in 2010.

The case has long been stagnant, but earlier this summer the Gwinnett County Police Department released previously undisclosed evidence in hopes of producing more information. That evidence included a note cut from magazine letters claiming responsibility for the murder, a sketch of the suspect and attempts to identify an unknown man in several family photos.

The latest information on the case can be found at amw.com. Viewers can also submit information on that website and by calling 1-800-CRIME-TV.
