A Canadian grandmother was duped twice in a romance scam and then turned into an unsuspecting drug mule, facing life in a Hong Kong prison.

W5’s 58th season kicks off with a one-hour special named after Suzana Thayer’s prison number. It’s called Prisoner 14000. For the first time ever Suzana speaks out about her mysterious release, which she directly attributes to W5’s investigation of her case. W5 also obtained more than 90 minutes of the riveting video of her interrogation shortly after her arrest at Hong Kong Airport and it raises concerning questions about her treatment.
