It was updated on Dec. 29, 2018.] Matt Herren still struggles to make sense of what happened the night of Oct. 12, 2012, when his close friend, Ryan Poston, was killed. "I think about him every day," Herren said. "You don't think something like that is ever going to happen to someone you know." "Is there something I could've done that could've prevented that? And I know a lot of people in his life had to have felt the same way," Herren told "48 Hours" correspondent Peter Van Sant. How did things spiral so out of control between Ryan and his girlfriend, Shayna Hubers, that she shot him to death -- insisting it was to protect herself? "What was lost when your friend was shot and killed?" Van Sant asked Herren. "He's the type of person that you want in your life," he replied.

World International Affairs Jamal Khashoggi told me he feared for his life. I was reporting a cover story on Saudi Arabia for Newsweek and we were speaking confidentially: that’s one reason I haven’t allowed this transcript to be published until now. The other reason is, I hoped against hope that he was still alive. Despite ample signs of the extreme brutality of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and his regime, I could never have imagined we would so soon be reflecting on Jamal’s death. Jamal was calm and deliberate as we spoke in great detail about Saudi Arabia’s future, and its recent past. “I don’t see myself as an opposition,” he said.
