TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) -- We are uncovering new details on the local woman found dead in her pool. A source close to the investigation tells us there has been a history of violence between Samira Frasch and her husband Adam Frasch.They were in the beginning stages of divorce proceedings.

Our source says Adam, a local doctor, tried to run the 38 -year-old model off the road just weeks ago. Samira's lawyer Buddy Whitlock says his client had temporary custody of their two children. He says her husband was supposed to go through the courts to get visitation rights but never did. He also says he carried a gun legally because he was concerned with Adam's behavior.

Samira was found in her pool at her home on Inverness Drive on Saturday. Her children were found over the weekend in Panama City with their father. He has been arrested, charged with two counts of interference with child custody. He's still in the Bay County Jail and is expected to be extradicted back to Leon County at some point this week.


We're still waiting to learn the details of what role, if any, deputies believe Adam may have had in Samira's death.
