Millionaire found guilty of wrestler's murder
Wednesday 26 February 1997
Lawyers for Du Pont, 58, acknowledged he killed Schultz at the wrestler's home on the du Pont estate but sought a verdict of not-guilty by reason of insanity. They argued Du Pont suffered from paranoid schizophrenia that rendered him incapable of knowing right from wrong.
Prosecutors had agreed Du Pont was mentally ill, but said he knew killing Schultz was wrong. Du Pont, a long-time fan and patron of amateur wrestling, established training facility on his estate. Schultz worked as a coach there and lived with his wife and two young children in a house on the estate. Reuter - Media, Pennsylvania
