20/20 co-host Hugh Downs announces the suicide of Marie Weinberg, the wife of Abscam FBI informant Mel Weinberg. She had appeared on the same program exactly one week earlier. This tape was obtained from an individual involved with Abscam.

Excerpts from Marie Weinberg's suicide note dated 1-26-82: The only one who can forgive me is God...My sin was wanting to love and be loved, nothing more--I haven't the strength to fight him (Weinberg) anymore...Everything I have attested to has been the truth...as God is my witness. Mel has threatened me with taking my son from me...the one thing I could never bear...maybe if I had done something--spoken up earlier it might have changed things--The guilt is too much--forgive me.
