Marty Jannetty made mainstream headlines when he confessed to a murder. He claims that as a 13-year-old boy he murdered a homosexual man who was allegedly attempting to rape him behind a bowling alley.

Boston Wrestling MWF has a new shoot interview up with Marty Jannetty where he addressed this story. The 20-minute conversation includes Jannetty opening up and providing new details about the time he allegedly murdered a man.

Jannetty stated that he was 13-years-old when a clerk at the bowling alley in Columbus, Georgia called Victory Lanes attempted to rape him. He said the he knew this man was selling marijuana which is why a young Marty wanted to see him in the first place.

He just wanted “to get some weed, that’s all.” He said that they went to a car first, and this is when the man grabbed Jannetty’s privates and asked “what’s this?” Jannetty said that “he was a big boy, maybe 6-foot-6.”


Jannetty then stated that the man grabbed him by his hair and his shirt and dragged him to the back of the bowling alley.

It was said that this man tried to restrain Jannetty. Then Jannetty claims that he grabbed a brick and he hit the man in the head. Jannetty said that the man didn’t deserve to die, but he did “deserve to get his ass beat.” His intention was not to kill the man. “When I was beating him in the head with a brick I was only trying to beat his ass, I wasn’t trying to kill him.”

Jannetty also went into some detail about dragging this man’s body to the river. This came after he admitted that he was advised by people to not do any interviews.

“Can you imagine dragging a guy who was just trying to f*ck you in the ass — can you imagine dragging him to the river and throwing him in and then you hear this guy’s missing? You know they do and you know more than that. That f*cking affected me bad, bro. I made my mind up that day. He didn’t even do it in the dark.”

This supposedly took place in 1973. Police are now investigating Marty Jannetty. You can check out the entire interview below.
