No Accident: The Death of Kristine Fitzhugh

In Episode 332

When Palo Alto music teacher Kristine Fitzhugh was found in a pool of coagulated blood at the bottom of her basement stairs, her husband Ken blamed her shoes. That’s right, her shoes. He had warned her over and over, he said, that those shoes were dangerous.  She must have stumbled and fallen in them.

But it didn’t take long for investigators to question Ken Fitzhugh’s theory.  The position of Kristine’s body and her injuries were not consistent with a fall.  And the blood evidence made Ken the primary suspect in her suspicious death.  Blood found in the Fitzhugh’s kitchen suggested that she had been attacked there.  Further inquiries exposed financial problems and an extramarital affair resulting in a pregnancy.

Join us at the quiet end for No Accident: The Death of Kristine Fitzhugh.  Ken Fitzhugh denied any involvement in his wife’s death, but inconsistencies in his story and forensic examination results led to his arrest and a dramatic, highly publicized trial.
