Marty Jannetty Clarifies Facebook Post After He Admitted He Made A Man Disappear
He provided additional details about the incident...
In a since deleted post on his Facebook page, former WWE Superstar Marty Jannetty admitted he "made a man disappear" and insinuated that he committed a homicide in self-defence and dumped the body in the Chattahoochee River.
Jannetty wrote: "I never told no one this, even my brother Geno..cause Geno would've killed him, and I didn't want my brother gone,,hell he'd only recently came home from Viet Nam..I was 13, working at Victory Lanes bowling alley buying weed from a f*g that worked there..and he put his hands on me..he dragged me around to the back of the building..you already know what he was gonna try to do..That was the very first time I made a man disappear..they never found him..they should looked in the Chattahoochie River..but Winnie(the girl in these pics) I likes you so damn much, probably my favorite..but I promised myself way back then, nobody would ever hurt me again..that includes you..I loved you but you hurt me with your f****n Jamaican jealousy..you can go your own way, I don't need you.."
Jannetty clarified the post yesterday during an interview with the Boston Wrestling MWF YouTube channel.
He said: "I said he disappeared. I didn't say I killed him, I said he disappeared… He's got me by the shirt and he's got me by the hair and he's dragging me to the back of the bowling alley. And when he got me back there he threw me on the ground, and remember I'm 13, this is a big old boy, I'm 13. He threw me to the ground and he was starting to unbutton me. He was trying to pull my pants down. I probably don't need to say this but there was a brick laying there… I was scared. I won't lie I was scared…
"I can't say he deserved to die but he deserved to get his a*s beat and when I was beating him in the head with the brick I was only trying to beat his a*s, I wasn't trying to kill him… Can you imagine dragging a guy who's just tried to f**k you in the a*s, can you imagine dragging him to the river and throwing him in and then finding out on the news that this guy's missing? And you know the dude and you know more than that. That f*****g affected me bad, bro. It hurt me and I made my mind up that day… Nobody would ever hurt me again."
Jannetty's Facebook post is being investigated by the Columbus, Georgia Police Department. A spokesperson told TMZ: "The first step will be seeing if we have any missing persons or unidentified remains cases that match the limited information in the post."
The spokesperson did note, however, that they have "several current active homicide investigations underway and they will have to remain the priority."
