Marty Jannetty made headlines for the wrong reasons when he admitted to killing a man when he was a teenager. The man attempted to sexually assault him. Jannetty, later on, said it was just a professional wrestling angle, but now he revealed more details.
Jannetty spoke to Hannibal TV, where he was asked regarding his murder confession. He said it was a serious situation when he was contacted by the GBI, which is why he said it was just a pro wrestling angle. He then revealed what really happened.
“You know once the police got involved — I don’t wanna say police. Once the GBI which is the Georgia Bureau Of Investigation got involved it got serious and I was just trying to set up a storyline. I have to say that right now because you know it was 40 years ago, and you know what kills me? They don’t care about that 13-year-old getting raped it’s like ‘oh you killed somebody.’ What do you think he was gonna do to me after he raped me?! Because so many rape victims get murdered afterward.”
“I was 13-years-old, 13. You know as a grown up or any kids listening to this you say what you think, but when it actually happens, I didn’t expect that reaction. I hit him in the brick, I said it was a brick, it was a piece of concrete thing and you know if you hit someone in the temple — very vunerable. Evidently I hit him too hard and he died right there.”
“How about if I was on top of your daughter?! Would you murder me?!” Jannetty asked as he tried to make a comparison.
He added :
“I have to say it’s a storyline for the police department” as he admitted that he didn’t drag the body to the river. He said “me and my nephew poured gasoline on the body and we burned the body up.” He said the entire body didn’t burn and “there were so many bone things that we dug a whole and put the bones in there.”
“Here’s what sticks with me. A 13-year-old boy was getting raped, and you’re mad at him. You know when it comes down to it people just want to make people feel better about themselves.” He said the problem is that whether the murder happened or not, it doesn’t matter because “all people want to do is put MJ down. You’re a murderer, murderer, murderer, murderer. You try to put your d*ck in my ass and you’ll be next.”
