The 2009 murder of a Wausau teenager will be featured this Sunday on the Investigation Discovery Channel.

On May 2, 2009 18-year-old Breanna Schneller, was a victim of a homicide in Wausau. Breanna was a member of Family, Career and Community Leaders of America at D.C. Everest High School and was the only individual in the state of Wisconsin to qualify to participate in the national FCCLA STAR Events (Students Taking Action with Recognition), held at the annual FCCLA National Leadership Conference. Unfortunately her life was taken prior to having the honor of making her presentation at this national event.

The Investigation Discovery Channel will air an hour long program about the mystery initially surrounding Breanna's death. The program Nightmare Next Door entitled, “Recipe for Murder” focuses on her case, the investigation and what her father is doing to rebuild his life after such a tragedy, briefly touching on the Breanna's Smile Foundation.

The program “Recipe for Murder” is scheduled to air on January 8 at 8:00 p.m.
