For those that have not read the items on the Newsline, here is what we know at the time about the death of Elizabeth Hulette, best known to wrestling
fans as "Miss Elizabeth".
Early this morning Larry Pfohl (Lex Luger) placed a call to 911 from his home on Riverstone Parkway off Powers Ferry Road in Georgia. Police
responded to the call of there being a "sick woman" at the residence at 5:30am. Hulette was was taken to Kennestone Hospital, where she died.
Pfohl was taken into custody by authorities for questioning, and was released at approximately 11:30am. No charges have been filed in conjunction
with the case.
No cause of death has been made public and authorities from Cobb County have not made any official comment on the case at this time other than that
they are investigating the death. A Cobb County Police spokesperson was quoted as saying "At this point, we don't know if it's a suicide, we don't
know if it's a natural death and we don't know if it's a homicide."
Local media in Atlanta are reporting that police responded to a domestic disturbance on Easter Sunday at Luger's residence. There is no indication at
this time that the incident this morning involved violence. One media source has reported that "foul play" has been ruled out in the death, but as
mentioned above, the police have not made any official comments yet regarding the cause of death.
When Main Event Fitness (Luger's gym) was contacted for comment, we received a "No Comment" before even asking any questions.
Elizabeth, who was 42 years old, was one of the most well known personalities in wrestling during the late-80's, when she was the manager of
then-husband Randy "Macho Man" Savage. She enjoyed a career resurgence in the mid and late 90's in WCW, where she managed Ric Flair, Randy Savage,
Lex Luger and was a member of the NWO. Elizabeth and Luger have been close friends for several years.
We will report more on the story as it comes in.
1Wrestling.com sends its condolences to the family, friends and fans of Elizabeth.
