(Silver Spring, Md.) - Michael Peterson appears to have it all - a doting wife, a loving family and a successful literary career - but, that all changes on December 9, 2001, when Michael's wife, Kathleen, is found dead in a pool of blood at the bottom of a staircase in their home in Durham, North Carolina. Michael claims it was a tragic accident. Investigators, however, fear something far more sinister is at play and direct their attention to him. Did Michael Peterson murder his wife?
