Hello, My name is Scott Spears and I work for WDCM radio in Marion, Ohio. I am doing a documentary on pro wrestler Douglas "Ox" Baker. On 06/16/71 during a wrestling match in Omaha Nebraska Ox Baker wrestled Alberto Torres and killed him in the ring. I was wondering if you might have any pictures or newspaper articles from this event. Anything would be much appreciated. Scott Spears 368 Carol Lane Marion, Ohio 43302

Answer

I found one small article in our Historical Omaha World Herald database that refers to Torres' death, which I've attached.  Otherwise, all the other articles I located were promotions for the bout, or were written months later about Alberto Torres' older brother, Ramon.
