20/20: (9 p.m., ABC) - This week’s true crime documentary is about 21-year-old Inna Budnytska, who was found unconscious, naked, beaten and near death in undeveloped Miami cul-de-sac in 2005. She had been a guest at a nearby hotel and no memory of her attack or rape, and hotel security footage initially offered few answers. ABC’s special features private investigator Ken Brennan, who noticed that the same day Budnytska went missing, a man rolled a large, heavy suitcase out of the hotel and returned an hour later without a suitcase. Brennan eventually tracked the man, Michael Jones, to Maryland. There is also an interview with Budnytska, and interviews with journalists who covered the case, policemen and detectives who worked the case, hotel employees and the person who was with her before the attack. This is the 14th of 15 two-hour documentaries from “20/20” that have aired since January.
