The Washington County News contributed file stories and photos to the 20/20 investigation.

Wohlschlaeger's fifth wife, Seitz, died in their Loxley, Ala., bedroom following days of unexplained pain. Her relatives say he is responsible, but Wohlschlaeger was never  charged with any crimes in connection to her death and maintains that he is innocent.

On the 20/20 episode, Seitz’s relatives said the four-year marriage that ended with Seitz unconscious, face down on their bedroom floor.

Her relatives told  ABC journalists that since Seitz's death in 2010, her relatives have discovered that Wohlschlaeger “soaked her dry” both before and after she died, even cashing in on a $100,000 life insurance policy and having her use her $500,000 in liquid assets that she had going into the marriage to buy their home and bankroll their life together.

Seitz's daughter Sharon Yeomans said that they were wary of Wohlschlaeger's financial footing even before her mother decided to marry him.

“He came into the marriage with the clothes on his back. And he's a doctor?” Yeomans told ABC.

Her relatives were hesitant when Seitz rushed into her marriage with Wohlschlaeger in 2006 after just a three-month courtship.
