ROLLING MEADOWS, Ill. (AP) A man who was convicted of murder in the drowning death of his wife 19 years ago, is on his way to prison. Frank Buschauer was sentenced to 25-years in prison by a Cook County Judge, for the 2000 death of Cynthia Hrisco in the couple’s South Barrington home. The sentence likely means that Buschauer will die in prison because under Illinois law he must serve the entire sentence. Initially it was ruled that Hrisco’s manner of death was undetermined…but the case was re-opened with new evidence in 2013, and eventually led to Buschauer’s arrest and subsequent conviction.
