Remembering Dave Schultz 

Today, Jan. 26, 2006, is the tenth anniversary of the slaying of one of America's greatest wrestlers, Dave Schultz, by crazed multi-millionaire John du Pont.

I remember being in the studios of WBAI radio in New York when the news came over the wire that a wrestler had been killed. A staffer knew that I covered wrestling and told me the news, but I couldn't believe what sounded like an incredible story.

Later we interviewed Bobby Douglas, and when we started talking about Dave, he broke down in tears. We had to stop the interview and re-tape it.

USA Wrestling has posted numerous articles honoring his memory. Gary Abbott has written a touching remembrance.

There is a section on TheMat.com forums devoted to writing about Dave.

There are also many other articles, including reposts of what was originally written when he was killed in 1996, also on TheMat.com.

Also, the Baltimore Sun has an article called 10 years later, mystery clings to Schultz slaying.
