Miss Elizabeth Passes Away at 42
by Brad Dykens
Here is a run down of the events as they happened AS REPORTED BY DAVE MELTZER:
12:26PM: An unidentified woman passed away in the hospital after police responded to a 5:30 a.m. call from the condo, believed to be the second home, of Larry Pfohl (wrestler Lex Luger). She was transported to Kennestone Hospital and has since passed away.
No other details are available at press time. There was a domestic disturbance reported at the address on Easter.
1:54PM: Elizabeth Heulette has been officially identified as the victim in the death at Larry Pfohl's (Lex Luger) house early this morning. Numerous sources have labeled Heulette (the famed Elizabeth of WWF and WCW fame), 42, as having passed away earlier today at Kennestone Hospital in Cobb County, GA. There had been a domestic dispute between the two on Easter Sunday. Preliminary indications are that this is not a domestic violence situation and it is believed to have been an overdose.
2:14PM: Police have ruled out foul play in the death earlier today of Elizabeth Heulette, 42, who was one of pro wrestling's biggest stars of the 80s.
Boyfriend Larry Pfohl (Lex Luger) was brought in for questioning since the death took place in his condo. He was released earlier today. A cause of death won't likely be determined until the results of toxicology reports, which won't be available for about 30 days.
5:53PM: Larry Pfohl (Lex Luger) was arrested this afternoon for violatoin of the controlled substances act. He is not being held in connection with the death of Elizabeth Heulette earlier today.
When police were checking Pfohl's town house earlier today, they found "various substances" including what were believed to have been steroids.
WSB-TV in Atlanta also aired the mug shot of Pfohl from his arrest two weeks ago on a domestic abuse charge when Heulette was found by police with a black eye. At the time she had claimed she slipped and fell while playing with the family dog.
