An American Tragedy by Theodore Dreiser
This book was strongly based on an actual drowning murder in 1906 in New York. The book then inspired an actual drowning murder in Sutton, Massachusetts in 1935.

Newell Sherman Drowns his wife July 20, 1935
In a situation quite similar to the book "An American Tragedy", and to the 1906 murder on which it was based, Newell Sherman took his wife Alice out on a rowboat on Lake Singletary, Sutton Massachusetts, and flipped the boat. He then watched her drown before swimming back to shore.
