Grand Jury Reopening of Snuka-Argentino Case Was Decades in the Making
by Irvin Muchnick
The district attorney of Lehigh County, Pennsylvania, is calling the Jimmy “Superfly” Snuka case the longest-dormant homicide investigation ever referred to a grand jury there. D.A. James Martin yesterday acknowledged the tireless advocacy of the two surviving sisters of Nancy Argentino, Snuka’s 1983 road girlfriend, in persuading Martin to take this course.
Nearly 31 years have elapsed since the fatal event. It is 22 years since I first began digging for the truth. And it’s seven months since Allentown Morning Call enterprise reporters Adam Clark and Kevin Amerman unearthed two buried reports — one on Nancy’s autopsy, the other on Snuka’s initial police interrogation — that made official stonewalling no longer an option.
