It was 20 years ago today—Jan. 6, 1994—that a hired goon struck Nancy Kerrigan with a telescoping baton. It was a plot by rival figure skater Tonya Harding to sideline Kerrigan for the Olympics, and remains one of sports' most unbelievable scandals. But whatever happened to the mastermind?

Harding bodyguard Shawn Eckhardt died in 1997. Matt Crossman caught up with hit man Shane Stant, who claims he's turned his life around. And last month, Amy K. Nelson tracked down the man himself—Jeff Gillooly, Harding's ex-husband and the brains behind the operation.
