    I suppose the professional wrestler Chris Benoit doesn’t count, since he also killed himself after killing his wife and children…?

    • becca

      Yeah, you can’t go to court if you’re dead.

    ParusMajor- You make a good point, but I didn’t include any wrestlers on purpose. When researching this list, I was considering a spinoff list of Top 10 Pro Wrestlers That Died Young, but never got past the idea phase. Free idea for any of my TopTenz peers.

    • ParusMajor

      Well, ok. Besides Benoit, the ones that immediately come to my mind are Eddie Guerrero and Owen Hart. Hayabusa did have a tragic accident but didn’t die… who else? Tony Halme (a.k.a. Ludvig Borga) died relatively young, but he had already quit wrestling… The things that make you go “hmmm”. 😀

    Just a quibble: as detestable as Vick’s charges were, dog fighting and killing dogs is not murder. Murder is legally defined as the unlawful killing of a human being with malice aforethought.

    • Nikter

      I agree. By the title of this list neither #10 nor #4 should be listed as neither one of these individuals was ever accused of murder. #10 was accused of attempting to hire a hitman who would attempt murder, and #4… well 5minutes said it well enough.

  • Orrin K

    I would add Javaris Crittenten to the list

  • mariuss72

    Oscar Pistorius???

  • Paul. A

    #5 “black supremacist ” group. Isn’t that an oxymoron ????

    • Steve

      Really? How is that an oxymoron? Are you saying that African Americans can’t form hate groups?

      • ParusMajor

        They can and have done so. The Black Panthers, anyone?

  • Scott

    Rubin “Hurricane” Carter

    Oscar “Blade Runner” Pistorius shot and killed his girlfriend on Valentines morning.

    • bre

      Is accused of*

      • “Olympian Oscar Pistorius today denied that he willfully killed his girlfriend, telling a South African court that he shot the woman through his bathroom door because he believed she was an intruder. ”

        • ParusMajor

          But why would you actually SHOOT an intruder before even asking him or her what they are doing there? Seems like a bit of an overreaction to me.

          • Oh, I think his defense is a lie. Why wouldn’t you call the police, run from your house or at least check to see if it was your girlfriend who was sleeping next to you and wasn’t there when you woke up?

      • Kris

        He is accused of MURDER, whether he shot and killed Reeva is not in dispute.

  • Fred

    6-25-13 If I wrote this list today, Aaron Hernandez would be one of the top 5on the list. (Another note to Commissioner Godell: I am a Browns fan, and one of the players on my roster was charged with attempted murder today, then cut. What is your new plan to curtail NFL behavior problems?)

    • Yes, I saw that. I wonder which sports have the most history of violent crimes among their participants.
