The case against Enrico Forti


  • By:The Nesheiwat Law Group

Two decades after Dale Pike was shot dead on a Miami beach, questions still swirl around the man convicted for the murder.

In June 2000, Enrico “Chico” Forti, an Italian television producer and former windsurfing champion was convicted and sentenced to life without parole in the 1998 killing of Dale Pike, an Australian who had traveled to Miami to meet with Forti about business deal. Few Americans have ever heard his name, but as “48 Hours” correspondent Erin Moriarty reports, in Italy, his case has been compared to that of Amanda Knox — a foreign national living abroad convicted of a murder with very little evidence.

Dina Nesheiwat represented Enrico Forti and the case appeared on CBS 48 Hours. Watch the full episode here.
