Drew Peterson: Defence pathologists counter prosecution counterparts who testified his third wife's death was murder; Washington Post;

STORY: "Pathologists for defence: Drew Peterson's third wife died in accidental fall in her bathtub," published by the Washington Post on August 28, 2012.

GIST: "Forensic pathologists testified for the defense Tuesday that they believe Drew Peterson’s third wife died of an accidental fall in her bathtub, countering earlier testimony from state witnesses that her 2004 death was murder.........“These injuries are classic for a fall,” said Jentzen, director of pathology at the University of Michigan medical school. “She slipped and fell, she struck the left side of her body and her head violently against the side of the tub.” A second pathologist, Dr. Vincent DiMaio, echoed that. He said the 40-year-old likely slipped for several reasons, including a slick tub surface with no rubber mat and her possible use of bath oils."
