In 1983, Nancy Argentino — girlfriend of eventual WWE Hall of Fame wrestler Jimmy “Superfly” Snuka — died mysteriously in a motel room outside Allentown, Pennsylvania. Author Irvin Muchnick’s 1992 article about the incident (later collected in his 2007 book WRESTLING BABYLON) is the most authoritative account of what happened. On the 30th anniversary of Nancy’s death, Muchnick updated his material and added never-before-published photos and documents — which helped lead to the September 2015 indictment of Snuka for third degree murder and involuntary manslaughter, after the oldest “cold case” in the history of Lehigh County.
In association with the Argentino family, all royalties from this project are being donated to Project Avalanche, a project of the church Centro Evangelical dei Fratelli in Salerno, Italy. Project Avalanche is in the midst of a building fund to develop the ministry’s 10,000-square-foot site in Salerno, which is projected to house a women’s shelter, among many other programs.
