CHIPLEY — A chiropractor who was arrested for burning down his Chipley office in 1995 was the subject of a 20/20 investigation which aired Friday on the ABC network.

Michael Allan Wohlschlaeger is being accused of killing his fifth wife, Shirley Seitz, by the woman’s relatives.

There were no charges against Wohlschlaeger in Seitz’s death, nor was he ever arrested in connection with the death.

Wohlschlaeger was, however, arrested in October 1995 by the Chipley Police Department in connection with the arson of his chiropractic office. He was convicted of arson in June 1997 and sentenced to 15 years’ probation, which ended in June 2012.

Seitz’s relatives aired their suspicions about Wohlschlaeger’s involvement in her death on the 20/20 episode “Sneaking Suspicions,” which aired nationally Friday, Sept. 6.
