Former NBA star stabbed to death by his wife in his sleep. Wife claims she "had to do it" because she caught him looking at child porn.
HoopsVibe's Very Quick Call: Sounds like there is more to this than her version of the story. Can anyone say Lifetime Movie?
Matthew White played for the Portland Trailblazers and was the star of the 1979 Cinderella University of Pennsylvania basketball team that went to the Final Four after upsetting UNC along the way. He was stabbed to death yesterday by his wife who reportedly took two knives repeatedly to his throat while he slept. She claims she had to do it because she found child porn on his computer.
Mrs. White (below) is a teacher and claims she loves kids. She also apparently loves sharp knives and stealth night attacks.
According to the New York Daily News:
With two knives she stabbed him in this throat as he slept. White woke up and tried to fight her off but was too weak and succumbed to his injuries.
After the attack his wife changed clothes and went to a friends house. The police were called to the home where they found White dead. His wife reportedly told authorities, "I caught him looking at pornography, young girls, I love kids. I had to do it."
I'm sure the world is a much safer place now that Mrs. White has taken her husband out. Sounds like the police are going to have a little digging to do on this one as it appears to most people involved there is more to the story than Mrs. White's version of events.
