As the killing of Nanette Krentel remains a mystery, it has caught the attention of the national show "Crime Watch Daily." 

The show will air a segment on the the death of the St. Tammany Fire Chief's wife on Wednesday (Feb. 21) at 4 a.m. and 11 a.m. in New Orleans (WNOL, channel 38) and noon in Baton Rouge (WBXH, channel 16). 

The show, which delves into current crime stories from around the nation, is hosted by TV journalist Chris Hansen. The show premiered in 2015. Hansen is best known for his work on Dateline NBC, as well as his role as host of the show "To Catch a Predator."

The episode, titled "Who Killed Nanette Krentel," will showcase the bizarre death of Krentel, who was shot in the head before her Lacombe house was burned to the ground in July.

Krentel's death was ruled a homicide by St. Tammany Parish Coroner Dr. Charles Preston, who said that there was no soot found in her airway during an autopsy.

The Sheriff's Office has been reluctant to provide detailed information on the case, which officials say is still an active investigation. Steve Krentel was cleared in the investigation, according to St. Tammany Sheriff Randy Smith. 

An interview with Smith well be featured in the TV series' feature.

Krentel's death is the lone unsolved homicide for St. Tammany Parish in 2017.
