Dateline NBC: The Wrong Door (9 p.m., NBC) – Andrea Canning reports on the murder of 27-year-old Egypt Covington, found murdered in her home in Van Buren, Michigan in 2017. Investigators in Michigan quickly identified a person of interest, but years passed without an arrest. Tonight’s show looks at the search for answers in the aspiring singer’s death and features exclusive interviews with Covington’s friends and family, as well as never-before-heard audio from the family’s private investigator.

20/20 (9 p.m., ABC) – Reporter John Quiñones has the story of Robert Bierenbaum — respected plastic surgeon, skilled skier, gourmet chef, fluent in multiple languages, and an expert pilot. But just like “Jekyll and Hyde,” Bierenbaum had a much darker side lurking underneath. He was also a violent and controlling abuser, and his wife, Gail Katz-Bierenbaum, confided in friends that she was afraid of him. Although authorities suspected him in Katz-Bierenbaum’s 1985 disappearance from their Upper East Side apartment, insufficient physical evidence allowed him to evade charges for fourteen years. He used that time to craft a new life across the country — until prosecutors discovered a doctored flight log from the day Katz-Bierenbaum vanished, and his lies finally caught up with him. Tonight’s report has exclusive interviews with women romantically involved with him after he left New York City and with the nanny for Bierenbaum’s child with his second wife. We’ll also see rare home videos, photos and more.
