Thornton P. Knowles On Bathtub Murders

When someone is found nude and dead in a bathtub, it's almost always a woman, and a good bet she had been drugged then drowned by her husband. Case closed. Not really. Death by drowning in a bathtub can be accidental, suicidal, or even natural. The detective has to prove homicide, and that's not always easy, particularly if there are no signs of physical trauma, and no obvious motive. I wonder how many men have gotten away with killing wives this way. My advice for married women is this: take showers. I should add that I have never been married.
