48 Hours Mystery Episode Guides
Lady in the Pool
Harold Dow reports about the death of Jan Roseboro, who was found dead in her swimming pool. The Roseboro's were well known and respected in their community, where Michael ran his family's century-old funeral home and Jan was a stay-at-home mom. So idyllic was the couple's life together that friends joked that they were like Ken and Barbie. Everyone was sure her death was an accidental drowning, except for the fact - as investigators put it - adults who know how to swim typically do not drown in their own swimming pools. As police tried to determine what happened, Michael Roseboro remained not only composed, but also extremely cooperative. Then an autopsy revealed that Jan had been strangled, beaten and then drowned. Her death was ruled a homicide and as investigators probed deeper they discovered a motive for Jan's murder. An unexpected tip revealed Michael was having an affair with Angela Funk, a married mother of two who lived near the funeral home.
