Corey Maclin dies at age 43 in auto accident

Corey Maclin

Details are still sketchy but Corey Maclin, the longtime Memphis pro wrestling television announcer, passed away in an auto accident that took place at 11 p.m. last night in Panola County in Mississippi.

Maclin was 43, and was married with six children.

Maclin was a local sports personality who joined the broadcast team, working with both Lance Russell and Dave Brown over a long period of time.

He later worked with Jerry Lawler in running a promotion that drew the biggest crowds of any independent group in the U.S. for several years, based on using Lawler against his biggest rivals of the past, and bringing in area legends for nostalgia based events.

The accident happened about 10:30 last night in Panola County, according to the Mississippi Highway Patrol. Maclin’s car rolled over just south of Sardis on Interstate 55, MHP spokesman Joey Miller said. Further details were unknown early Wednesday.

Lehigh County D.A. to look at Snuka/Argentino case

Jimmy "Superfly" Snuka
Posted at

Irvin Muchnick, who published an ebook on the death of Nancy Argentino which fueled two front page newspaper stories on the 30-year-old case, reported today that sources close to Lehigh Country District Attorney James B. Martin have told him the office is moving toward taking a fresh look at the case.

Martin reported has told colleagues he intends to ask Chief Deputy Charles F. Gallagher III to look into the 1983 case, where Argentino, the Northeast traveling mistress of Jimmy Snuka, died at 23.

Snuka claimed in his new autobiography that Argentino was going to the bathroom on the side of the road and hit her head.  The next night, after a show in Allentown, PA, he returned to his motel room and found her clinging to life and she passed away after being rushed to the hospital.
The legal case went nowhere, but the Argentino family won a $500,000 wrongful death default judgment against Snuka in 1985.  Snuka never paid the judgment.
