Harrouff's Dr. Phil interview to be released

The 4th District Court of Appeal has refused to hear an appeal from Austin Harrouff's attorneys to stop the release of the interview he gave Dr. Phil.

As a result, the State Attorney will release the interview Tuesday morning.
              
Harrouff is the teenager the sheriff's office believes ambushed and killed a Martin County couple and then chewed on the flesh of one of his victims.

The interview happened just days before he was released from the hospital and arrested.

Dr. Phil decided at the last minute not to air the conversation.

WPTV went to court demanding the interview because the station believes what Harrouff said prior to his arrest is important.

While details of the content discussed in the interview have not yet been made public it has been filed as discovery evidence.

Defense attorneys for Harrouff unsuccessfully argued that releasing the interview could hurt his right to a fair trial.
