WWE Hall of Famer Jimmy ‘Superfly’ Snuka Has Been Charged With The Murder of His Girlfriend From 1983
WWE – High-flying wrestling legend Jimmy “Superfly” Snuka got pinned one last time Tuesday — with a 32-year-old murder rap.
The Fiji-born WWE Hall of Famer was jailed on $100,000 bail in Lehigh, Pa. – a stunning fall from grace – in the 1983 death of girlfriend Nancy Argentino, 23, of Brooklyn.
“We never found justice in all this time, but it’s better late than never,” the victim’s sister, Lorraine Salome, 60, told the Daily News.
Prosecutors say Snuka fractured the slender Argentino’s skull during a day of abuse, then failed to call for help for at least 12 hours — and perhaps a full day.
Snuka was arrested four months before that for dragging Argentino by her hair down the hallway of an upstate New York hotel. In that incident near Syracuse, it took sheriff’s deputies and two dogs to get the wrestler under control.
“The next time the violence happened, it was too late,” Salome said at her Brooklyn home. “She was gone and everybody was in shock.”
The sister hopes the accused killer never gets a day’s rest.
It’s been a tough summer if you’re a WWE Hall of Famer and it’s one of the more bizarre summers I can imagine as a wrestling fan. Coming out of WrestleMania 31, WWE was literally on an all time high. They put on one of the best shows ever, the WWE Network numbers were sky rocketing and NXT was taking over the world. Now we’re in September, and between the untimely deaths of Roddy Piper and Dusty Rhodes and the racism/murder scandals of Hulk Hogan and Jimmy Snuka, it’s a really weird time to be a wrestling fan. Of course the Snuka murder is something that has been speculated on for decades. His girlfriend died under mysterious circumstances back in 1983, and he was the only one who had been with her that night. He was somehow never charged, but now it looks like his past has caught up with him. You’re innocent until proven guilty, but whenever you’re arrested 32 years after a murder, it’s usually because they have some kind of evidence on you. Let’s try and keep pro wrestling out of the headlines for awhile, OK guys?
And there it is for those who missed it: Aaron Hernandez found guilty of first-degree murder. — Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) April 15, 2015
There you have it. Ex football player and now official murderer Aaron Hernandez is going to jail forever. It’s kind of crazy to think someone who literally had it all could end up being a murderer/possible serial killer, but I guess anything is possible in the NFL. A few years ago he was signing a $40 million contract and now he’s going to jail for first degree murder. The NFL is messed up and the only real difference between Hernandez and NFL poster boy Ray Lewis is shit luck and better friends I suppose. And if you’re wondering why I dropped the ‘possible serial killer line in the previous sentence…
And Aaron Hernandez still faces trial for alleged murders of Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado in July 2012. — Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) April 15, 2015
A US teenager has been charged with murder after authorities say he took a selfie with the dead body of a boy and sent it to a friend on social media.
The 16-year-old, named by news reports as Maxwell Marion Morton, is accused of shooting to death Ryan Mangan, 16, at his home in Jeannette, Pennsylvania, on 4 February.
The alleged selfie depicted “the victim sitting in a chair with a gunshot wound to the face” and male “taking the selfie with his face facing the camera with the victim behind him”, according to a police affidavit.
It was obtained by police after a woman reported that her son had received the photo via Snapchat.
The woman also told police that her son had received text messages saying: “I told you I cleaned up the shells” and “Ryan was not the last one”. -news.sky.com
I would like nothing more than to sit here and tell you how shocking this is, but to be honest, I can’t do that. This is what teenagers have become. Savages with no remorse for their actions (generalizing like crazy right now). First off, what is going so wrong in your life that you murder one of your classmates and then when you realize what you’ve done you take a picture of the body and snapchat it out to your friends. That, ladies and gentlemen, is insanity at its finest and it makes me worried about our future.
Source – A suspect wants prison bosses to let him have his ‘murder’ tattoo removed – ahead of his trial for killing another man.
Jeffrey Chapman has the word spelled backwards tattooed across his neck.
He believes it might prejudice a jury ahead of his trial for the killing of Damon Galliart whose body was found by hunters near Great Bend, Kansas, in 2011.
His lawyer has requested that either Chapman be taken to a tattoo parlour to have it removed, or for a tattoo artist to be brought to his cell.
The motion suggested that the tattoo was too large to be covered by clothing.
The Great Bend Tribune reports that although prosecutors are not against the request, state law prohibits tattoo artist from carrying out work anywhere other than at a licensed premises.
And the Barton County Sheriff has said Chapman cannot be transported from his cell.
Well Jeffrey Chapman finds himself in quite the pickle. Although I could’ve told him that getting the word “murder” tattooed in huge letters across his neck was going to come back to haunt him. I’m 100% on board with neck tattooes. I love them. But my version of a neck tattoo is a small symbol or a cursive word near the collarbone. Not the word “murder” in unbelievably huge letter spanning the entire front part of my neck. Part of me feels that he always knew he was going to murder someone. But a much larger part of me wants to think that someone that stupid can’t exist in this world. If he got this tattoo before he killed Damon Galliart then he’s really dumb. If I’m a murderer, the last word I want to get tattooed on my body is murder. Just doesn’t make sense. If you get caught, which you probably will if you have that tattoo, then you’re basically giving yourself zero chance with the jury. If I was on the jury for this trial I’d bring my phone with a killer playlist and my new headphones and just vote guilty at the end. And if anyone questioned me I’d point out that the defendant has the word murder tattooed on his neck.
P.S. The most shocking part of this story? He’s not from Florida.
The oatmeal created an awesome (and accurate) breaking bad chart that analyzes each character’s tendency for violence vs. how much hair they have. Since George Zimmerman can’t see to keep his fat head out of trouble, I decided to do a little analyzing of my own.
Here’s George Zimmerman in 2005 after a domestic violence incident. Still not a choir boy, but the case was eventually thrown out. Also, notice Zimmerman has a full head of hair and he’s fat.
Here’s George Zimmerman towards the end of the Trayvon Martin trial, and only a few months before his most recent domestic violence incident. He isn’t pure evil by any means, and he’s grown out his hair and somehow gotten fatter.
Fresh off a murder George Zimmerman. That’s right, no hair, semi-skinny, and now he’s a murderer. Shot an unarmed kid. When George Zimmerman is fat with a full head of hair, he get’s into minor domestic disturbances. When George Zimmerman gets a buzz cut and loses weight, he turns into a murderer.
Moral of the story: whether you’re cooking meth to feed your family during a cancer battle or a member of the neighborhood watch, if you’re skinny with a shaved head and a goatee you’re a cold blooded murderer.
HELENA, Mont. — They were newlyweds, but she was having second thoughts about the 8-day-old marriage, court documents say. The couple drove the short distance from their Kalispell home to Glacier National Park, where they got into an argument. He grabbed her by the arm, but she pulled away and shoved him face-first off a cliff to his death. Federal prosecutors have given their version of what happened to Cody Lee Johnson, 25, two months after his body was found in an area of the park so steep and rugged that a helicopter had to be used in the recovery. Jordan Linn Graham, 22, appeared Monday in federal court in Missoula on a second-degree murder charge in Johnson’s July 7 death. Her attorney, public defender Andrew Nelson, declined to comment. Johnson’s family and friends had called for an investigation since the body was recovered July 12 below the Loop Trail near the sheer cliff drops of the park’s popular Going to the Sun Road. Johnson loved her and was excited for their marriage after a two-year courtship, but his relatives suspected that Graham didn’t exactly reciprocate, family friend Tracey Maness said. She was aloof, didn’t want to spend time with his family, and clammed up when she did, Maness said. He told his mother that Graham would change when they got married, Maness said. “Nobody ever could have thought something like this could happen,” she said. On the night Johnson died, Graham told a friend that she meant to talk with Johnson about “having second thoughts about having been married,” according to an FBI affidavit filed with the criminal complaint.
Just before 9 p.m., she texted the friend that she was about to talk to him. “But dead serious if u don’t hear from me at all again tonight, something happened,” Graham wrote, according to the affidavit. Johnson was reported missing July 8 when he failed to show up for work, and Graham was questioned the following day. She originally told investigators that Johnson sent her a text message the night of his death, saying he was going for a drive with a friend from out of town. She said she arrived to see a dark-colored car pulling out of their driveway, and that Johnson was in it. On July 11, two days after that interview, Graham told a park ranger in Glacier that she had found the body below the popular Loop area, the affidavit said. The park ranger commented that it was unusual that she found it. “It was a place he wanted to see before he died,” she said, according to the affidavit. “He would come up here with friends to drive fast when his friends were visiting from out of town.” Five days later, Graham admitted to authorities in a second interview that she had lied, according to the affidavit. She told them she and Johnson had an argument, were upset and decided to go to the Loop Trail. They continued arguing on the trail, and it intensified. At one point, she turned to walk away, but Johnson grabbed her arm, she said. She turned around, removed his hand from her arm and “due to her anger, she pushed Johnson with both hands in the back, and as a result, he fell face first off the cliff,” the affidavit said. Maness described Johnson as a “big goofball” with a great sense of humor who was into cars, video games, four-wheeling and kayaking. He and Graham during their engagement would go to Glacier for some of the easy day hikes, most recently in May, she said. She said the family is relieved that the investigation is finally complete and charges brought after two months. “Two months probably isn’t very long for an FBI investigation, but when you’re waiting for answers, that’s a lifetime,” she said.
As I was reading about what happened to Cody, I remebered an article about an old man who got trampled by and elephant and it got me thinking: what would be the most embarrassing way to die? Not the worst way to die. That’s still being in an enclosed tank as it slowly fills up with water. Kind of like how Charlie died in Lost, except without the permanent marker or the heroin addiction. But what about the most embarassing way to die? Getting shoved off a cliff by your new bride is pretty embarassing, but so is getting trampled by an elephant playing bocce.
Unless you’re Stallone in Cliffhanger, you’re probably not going to survive a shove to the face off a cliff. I just don’t know if that’s the way I want to go out. Marry a girl one week, the next week she’s throwing you off a cliff. In her defense, who has an argument with a girl then takes her to a mountain top? Unless he was planning on throwing her off the cliff, but she saw it coming and pulled the ol’ switcharoo. Brutus move if I ever saw one.
Next we have the old French man who got trampled by an elephant. I understand the guy was in his 80s, but how do you not see or hear an elephant coming? It’s not like it can sneak up on you. I feel like if an elephant was charging towards I could casually step aside and it would keep running. This is what happens when you get emotionally invested in bocci. You get trampled by a runaway elephant named Tania.
These are both embarassing ways to die, but I gotta believe my friends would give me way more flack for getting run over by a elephant. The old French man trumps the cliff diver.
OKLAHOMA CITY — An Australian man attending an Oklahoma college on a baseball scholarship was shot and killed in what police described Monday as a random act of violence by three “bored” teenagers who decided to kill someone for the fun of it.
Christopher Lane, 22, of Melbourne, was found dead Friday while visiting the town of Duncan, where his girlfriend and her family live. Three boys, ages 15, 16, and 17, are in custody and face a court appearance Tuesday afternoon.
Duncan Police Chief Danny Ford said Monday a woman called 911 after she saw Lane stagger across the road and fall to the ground in the south-central Oklahoma town of about 24,000 residents. Ford said Lane, who was staying with his girlfriend and her family in Duncan, had jogged past a home where the three boys were staying. He said the shooting appeared to be completely random.
Autopsy results are pending. Ford wouldn’t say how many times Lane was shot.
Ford said the 17-year-old has given a detailed confession to police but that investigators have not been able to locate the weapon.
“They saw Christopher go by, and one of them said: ‘There’s our target,'” Ford said. “The boy who has talked to us said: ‘We were bored and didn’t have anything to do, so we decided to kill somebody.'”
“They followed him in the car to that area, shot him in the back and drove off,” Ford said.
Ford told the television station KOCO in Oklahoma City that one of the teens said they shot Lane for “the fun of it.”
He said the district attorney is expected to file first-degree murder charges Tuesday, and all three will be arraigned at Stephens County District Court. It wasn’t known whether the three will be charged as adults or as juveniles. -ESPN
Thank god for Oklahoma having capital punishment. When i’m bored I take out a video game, I whip out the old sketch book, or hell, I’ll even visit the spank bank. Want to know what I don’t do? Go out and kill innocent people, but maybe it was just how I was raised. When I was young my dad (Happy Birthday old man!) always told me that I shouldn’t have my elbows on the table while i’m eating and that I should never go out and shoot people when i’m bored. Those two things go together like lamb and tuna fish. Chis Lane, a 22 year-old college student had his life cut short after these 3 morons (I will refrain from the words I would normally use because I have fucking taste) went out and killed him, because they “didn’t have anything to do”. Hey guys, I don’t have anything to do tomorrow after work, mind if I come by and take your head off with a baseball bat? It’s a damn shame that people like this exist.
PS- I am not one to glorify killers (i’m not the rolling stone), but these kids <sarcasm> are doing wonders for stereotypes. </sarcasm>
