Tuesday, 28 January 2014 10:18
The unanswerd questions regarding the death of Nancy Argentino, the girlfriend/mistress of Jimmy Snuka during his WWF heyday, will attempted to be brought to light with the announcement that the case is going to a Lehigh County grand jury.
Argentino passed away of May 10, 1983, from head trauma, at the age of 23. She had been traveling with Snuka, at the time the most popular wrestler in the WWF. At the time the case was ruled an accidental death but there were many perplexing questions as to why it wasn't investigated more thoroughly.
A combination of family vigilance, an autobiography of Snuka giving his explanation as to what happened, and a push by a number of reporters on the 30th anniversary of the death last year led to several widely-read from page newspaper stories on the case.
Here's the report from The Allentown Morning-Call, which published a number of those stories.
