NHL Draft Pick Allegedly Murders Referee

Wow….There is something you don’t here every day…

the good folks at Kukla’s corner dug this one up:

23-year-old forward Ladislav Scurko has been arrested on charges of murder. Apparently he has also admitted to the crime too. Allegedly Scurko fatally stabbed referee Marek Liptaj 14 times (14 TIMES) with a knife way back in January of 2008, then burried the body in the woods where it wasn’t found for 12 months! The normal prison term for a crime like this is 15-20 years and of course an instigater, 10 minute penalty and 2 for stabbing (14-times)

Scurko was selected in the 6th round of the 2004 entry draft by your Philadelphia Flyers! He won his leagues scoring title this year.

Brutal. This one sounds like it could be one worth following.
