A murderous incident on the high seas led to the death of former NBA player Bison Dele. In 2002, three years after walking away from basketball at the age of 30, Dele was sailing on his yacht in the South Pacific when he, his girlfriend and the boat's skipper were allegedly murdered. The suspected killer was Dele's older brother, Miles Dabord, who was later caught forging Dele's signature while trying to buy thousands of dollars of gold. With the FBI breathing down his neck, Dabord overdosed on insulin, slipped into a coma and died.
