A business deal apparently gone wrong, a vindictive goon and a murder-for-hire plot that ended in the deaths of two men — one buried somewhere in North Dakota's oil fields, the other a Spokane businessman.

Those are the details that led a jury to convict James Henrikson of 11 charges for his role in ordering the hits on Kristopher "K.C." Clarke and Douglas Carlile. Clarke's body has never been found, and Carlile was murdered in his South Hill home in 2013. Timothy Suckow, a Spokane Valley resident, confessed to killing both men at Henrikson's direction.

Henrikson was given multiple life sentences in May for his role in the plots. 

This Friday, Dateline NBC will air interviews with Henrikson's girlfriend Sarah Creveling, who is speaking publicly for the first time. The episode will also feature never-before-seen footage of Henrikson's interrogation and an interview with Carlile's widow, Elberta Carlile.

The episode airs 8 pm PT. Here's a teaser: 


Back in 2014, after Henrikson was first charged, the New York Times published an in-depth look at the business deal gone wrong that led to the crimes. A 20-minute documentary accompanied the article. Check it out:
