He was 73. The case against Snuka was dismissed earlier this month after a judge ruled him incompetent to stand trial. His death was announced by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. On May 10, 1983, Snuka was in Allentown, Pa, with Nancy Argentino to film an event for WWF. Snuka said he came back from a taping and found Argentino “gasping for air and oozing yellow fluid from her mouth and nose.” Snuka said Argentino had slipped on the side of the highway and hit her head, but Snuka’s own accounts of what happened that night varied depending on who he was talking to, and an autopsy report ruled her death a homicide. No charges were brought against Snuka—fueling decades of speculation, especially about what Vince McMahon knew—until a Morning Call report in 2013 published details from the autopsy report and police reports.
