A Pennsylvania district attorney announced Monday that he is convening a grand jury to investigate the mysterious, 1983 death of Nancy Argentino - and her one-time boyfriend, former professional wrestling superstar 'Superfly' Jimmy Snuka, is named as a person of interest in the then-23-year-old's tragic death.

Guess I was wrong
Remember the Fly off the Steel Cage from some ungodly height in the Wrestlemania? that was an athletic feat. how many backyard injuries were a result of attempting to duplicate it?
I remember that. Amazing! I think he was wrestling Magnificent Don Muraco. Of course the other memory was when Roddy Piper smashed his head with a coconut during Piper’s Pit.

He was well past his prime at that point.
