In 1996, Delia Owens and her husband Mark were the subjects of an ABC documentary, “Deadly Game: The Mark and Delia Owens Story”, about their work trying to save elephants from poachers in Zambia. During the production, an alleged poacher’s murder was filmed and now, more than 25 years later, Owens is still sought for questioning in his death.

Like the book’s protagonist, Kya, Owens finds herself somehow connected to a murder. The doc captures three rounds being fired at someone who host Meredith Viera refers to as a “trespasser,” as no one was sure whether he was a poacher or not. The first shots happened before cameras started rolling, and it was unclear where the shots came from.

Chris Everson, the ABC cameraman who filmed the incident, claims Mark Owens’ grown son from another marriage, Christopher, fired the first and last shots. Delia denied the accusation in a 2010 New Yorker article, claiming that ABC “just wanted something sensational.”

Zambian authorities never pressed charges for the murder, but because there’s no statute of limitations on murder there, the Owenses, including Delia, are still sought for questioning.

According to a recent Atlantic article, Zambian officials want to question Delia Owens as a possible witness, co-conspirator, and accessory to felony crimes. The matter, however, is further complicated by the lack of an extradition treaty between the U.S. and Zambia, and ABC’s reported refusal to cooperate with the investigation.
