The third wife of Bolingbrook, Ill., police sergeant Drew Peterson, Savio, 40, was discovered by neighbors in her home in an empty bathtub with a 1-inch gash on the back of her scalp in 2004. Savio and Peterson were divorced, but the details of the divorce settlement were weeks away from being finalized when she died. Her death originally was ruled an accidental drowning, but authorities later said it was a homicide staged to look like an accident. Peterson is now in jail on murder charges in the death, and has pleaded not guilty.
