“The unsolved 30-year old death of Nancy Argentino, the Northeast girlfriend of Jimmy Snuka, wound up being front page news in both the Allentown (PA) Morning-Call and Cherry Hill (NJ) Courier-Post.

“The story, written about a few times in these pages over the past few months, stemming from Snuka’s explanation of the death in his autobiography, led to renewed interest in the story, as well as an ebook, called “Justice Denied,” written by Irv Muchnick and released last month on the anniversary of the incident.”

“Muchnick thought that the Morning Call‘s story was flawed by self-censorship, most notably leaving out this sentence from a passage in Jimmy Snuka’s book: “I don’t know if [Vince McMahon] gave Nancy’s family money or anything.” Irv’s conclusion would be sure to have WWE lawyer Jerry McDevitt spitting his morning coffee out in disgust if he still spies on the Muchnick blog: “The question raised and unanswered by Snuka’s tantalizing quote is something entirely different: whether WWF, in protecting one of its most popular stars from a homicide indictment, handed out strategic cash to anyone else.
