Neurosurgeon Sam Sheppard allegedly murdered his wife. 
After 9 years in jail we're told he was freed 
by lawyer F. Lee Bailey,
(A future O.J. Simpson lawyer) on appeal. 
Later...books, a television series, and a movie ensued.
Turning to Professional Wrestling, he was scripted 
to drink 8 cups of liquor a day, whereupon, he and his liver 
expired at 46. 
Where the Doctor dutifully went after his faked death
not to mention his wife's faked one
is one more case for: FAKED DEATH$ ENRICHETH.

Caveat Emptor!
