Terrifying position of Shele Colvin’s body after estranged husband Rod orchestrated death before she could swipe him from the will

Shocking details have been revealed in the case of a mother of two whose daughter found her dead and face down in her bathroom.

Although the death of 47-year-old Shele Danishefsky Coclin initially looked like an accident, police soon discovered it was anything but – her husband Rod Colvin had strangled her and orchestrated the horrifying scene.

Eventually, police uncovered the truth that Rod, then 35, retaliated for their threat to have him removed from her multimillion-dollar will.

The mother’s body was discovered by her then nine-year-old daughter in the bathtub.

Covlin told police at the time that he had unsuccessfully resuscitated his wife.

Originally, the police had declared the death as an accident.

But as police continued to investigate Danishefsky’s death, they realized there was more to the story.

Danishefsky, a former investment banker, had $5.2 million left in her will.

After a strain on their marriage, Danishefsky cut Covlin out of millions of dollars.

The day before the will was finalized, Danishefsky was found dead.

Police exhumed her body and determined she had not drowned in the tub; she had been strangled.

Just days before receiving Danishefsky’s estate in 2015, Covlin was arrested for her murder.

Where is Rod now?

Rod Covlin has served eight years of his sentence at Attica Correctional Facility.

Covlin was sentenced to 25 years of life imprisonment in 2019.

He was convicted of the second-degree murder of Danieshefsky.

Covlin said he was innocent during the sentencing hearing: “Fortunately, my daughter, who slept in Shele’s bed that night, knows the truth.”

“Our children are amazing people, they are strong, brave, wise and they know I love them.”

Danishefsky’s younger brother, Philip, criticized his brother-in-law.

“He’s a murderer; he is a terrorist… he must rot there never to see the light of day.”

ABC episode 20/20, entitled New Year’s Evil, which details the Danishefsky tragedy, will air on January 27, 2023.
