In the 1990s friends and acquaintances were concerned about erratic behavior and in 1997 he was convicted of the murder in the third degree of his friend Dave Schultz, an Olympic champion freestyle wrestler. He was ruled to have been mentally ill but not insane and was sentenced to prison, where he died thirteen years later. The story is retold in the true crime book “Wrestling With Madness.”
