Diary of a Showgirl

Nov 21, 2009 on CBS at 10:00 PM


It was the start of a murder mystery that had it all: sex, lies, greed, a savage crime and a beautiful showgirl. That showgirl, Marjorie Orbin, is now in Phoenix, Arizona's Estrella Jail, charged with the brutal murder of her husband, Jay Orbin. "... (more)On Oct. 23, 2004, a man - a transient living in the desert - came across a container wrapped in heavy black plastic. He decides to open the container. He sees the torso of a body," Det. Dave Barnes of the Phoenix Police Department explained. "All of the insides, all of the internal organs, intestines were missing… I thought, 'Who could do this to human being? Cut off his arms, his legs, his head?'" Prison stripes are a far cry from the diamonds and furs Marjorie was accustomed to. In a "48 Hours" exclusive - six months of Marjorie's video diaries from jail and unprecedented access to a woman facing the possibility of death row.
