NBC Dateline: San Diego car bombing in 2010 mimicked a terrorist attack but came from a domestic crime
An NBC Dateline episode “Deadly Intent II” (there had been a previous episode of that name with a case in Illinois of Drew Peterson) described the serious injury to San Diego mom Connie Hoagland by a car bomb, in 2010.
The case was important because at first authorities thought that this could be a true act of terrorism, with targeting of ordinary civilians. But her husband, Lawrence, would eventually get a life sentence, as in this news story He would have to face his family at sentencing, and it was brutal.
