SARASOTA, Fla. — People tune into "The Jerry Springer Show" for its explosive love triangles. Authorities fear the violence may have spilled over later, resulting in a guest's death.

In an episode entitled "Secret Mistresses Confronted," which was taped in May and aired Monday, Ralf Panitz and his wife, Eleanor Panitz, accused his former wife of stalking them.

Shortly after the broadcast, the body of Nancy Campbell-Panitz was found in a home the three were fighting over, according to the Sarasota County Sheriff's Office.

Investigators wouldn't say how the 52-year-old woman was killed, but they said the death was a homicide and they were searching for Panitz, 40, and his new wife, 45.
