Police are investigating WWE legend Marty Jannetty, 60, after appearing to post a murder confession on Facebook. Jannetty claimed that when he was 13 he made a man, who tried to sexually assault him, “disappear.”
“I was 13, working at Victory Lanes bowling alley buying weed from a f** 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,” wrote Jannetty.
He continued, “That was the very first time I made a man disappear… they never found him… they shoulda looked in the Chattahoochee River.”
Here is Jannetty’s full post, via a Twitter screenshot:

Columbus Police Department told TMZ they have launched an investigation into the former wrestler’s confession.
“We are going to look into this,” a Columbus Police Department spokesman 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.”
UPDATE: Fox Sports Radio added: “After making the post, Jannetty provided more details about what happened to Boston Wrestling. He explained that the man fondled him in a car, before driving into an alley. When the man pulled down his pants, Jannetty said he attacked him with a brick and eventually killed him. He then dumped the body in the river.”
