Last we heard, James B. Martin, district attorney of Lehigh County, Pennsylvania, was taking a “fresh look” at the evidence in the 1983 death of Nancy Argentino in WWE wrestler Jimmy “Superfly” Snuka’s motel room in Whitehall, Pennsylvania, just outside Allentown.

Martin announced this step with the lowest of expectations that anything would come of the exercise, but he did strongly suggest that it was a summer project under the “fresh eyes” of his chief deputy, Charles F. Gallagher III.

Since we’re now into late October — nearly a month into autumn — I checked in with the district attorney’s office.

Martin’s spokeswoman, Debbie Garlicki, said, “”We do not comment on pending investigations.  When the matter is concluded, an appropriate comment will be made.”

I asked Adam Clark, one of the Allentown Morning Call reporters whose front-page “cold case” article prompted the district attorney’s office to do … whatever it is they are now doing … whether and when the newspaper would weigh in again.

Clark said, “We are still pursuing stories about the case and will report any developments, including if the fresh look is concluded.”
