Adding to that, Seitz had her own share of relationship issues in the past, as this was also her fifth marriage, relatives said.

Her fourth husband Gene Seitz had left her $1million following his death, and while she never told her relatives that she felt used during her four-year marriage to Wohlschlaeger, the claim to have found out after her death that she had felt used, according to Seitz’s personal journals.

“How much longer am I going to have to financially support this man? He said he wasn't going to do this to me. He said he was going to get a job. He's constantly spending my money. Lord when is he going to get a job?” Seitz wrote in one entry, according to her daughter.

Two of Wohlschlaeger’s other ex-wives were also on 20/20 saying that he also showed violent behavior during their marriages — facts that they did not disclose during the investigation into Seitz's death.

His third wife, Gloria Potts, was married to him from 1981 to 1995. When contacted by Seitz's daughter, she said that he once hit her with a mallet in the back of her head and then tried to smother her in their bed.

Potts said that she was hospitalized after the incident and told doctors that she fell in the shower.

When she later asked what he was doing, Potts said that Wohlschlaeger told her his actions were the result of a jellyfish sting.
