Former wrestler Vern Gagne, who is 82-years-old and suffering from Alzheimer's disease, is the focus of an inquiry after an altercation with another man at their Bloomington, Minn., nursing home resulted in the man's death.

Gagne and 97-year-old Helmut Gutmann got into an argument in which Gagne body-slammed Gutmann, breaking his hip. Gutmann died two weeks later.

Gagne was drafted by the Chicago Bears in 1947, and was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2006.
