Championship boxer & Heavyweight Champion Sonny Liston was found deceased in his Las Vegas home by his wife just after New Years. Police would find small bags of heroin and marijuana in his home, and by some accounts, a syringe. His wife Geraldine adamantly denied that Sonny was a drug user, while others said he was a regular heroin user. Was Sonny a victim of a drug overdose – accidental or purposely? Or was Sonny murdered by organized crime bosses when he wouldn’t throw a fight?
Join Mark and Amy in the City of Sin to take a closer look at the life and death of Sonny Liston.
