8 Pro Athletes Convicted of Murder

Being a sports star can be murder. It can apparently also drive you to commit murder. Which athletes have been convicted of murder? Here are the eight most bloodthirsty pro-athletes who have been convicted of murder for reasons as silly as a traffic dispute all the way to murdering underworld crime bosses... which would be an awesome job title, minus the whole murder thing... It's kinda shocking that there were more than eight murderous athletes, but I kept the list for now to the most interesting sports star killers.

Pro athletes should have enough money to hire hit men if they must kill, you know? And if you are getting paid boo koo bucks to be a pro athlete, WTF are you so angry about anyhow? But these jocks aren't the brightest bulbs in professional athletics, as evidenced by their stories below. Be on the lookout for a sequel if this list of murderous athletes is a hit.

    Robert Rozier (a.k.a. Robert Rameses)

    Robert Rozier, former member of the St. Louis Cardinals (for which he only played six games after being released on suspicion of drugs... "suspicion"... wow, THOSE were the days) later became a member of "The Brotherhood" cult led by Yahweh ben Yahweh in Miami during the 1980s.

    The cult, comprised of members from an off-shoot of black supremacists from the Black Hebrew Israelite religion, believed that God is black, that true Jews are black and that whites are the 'devil.' You know, your typical peaceful religion.

    Oh, except for the part where to prove one's worthiness to the cult, each member had to kill a 'white devil,' and provide proof.

    Ever the overachiever, Rozier confessed to killing seven white people and was arrested and charged on October 31, 1986.

    Rozier was sentenced to 22 years, but only served ten after agreeing to testify against Yahweh and was later put in the witness protection program.

    However, in 1999, he was arrested in Canada (how embarrassing) for attempting to pass a bad check and was again arrested under the 'third strike' law, being sentenced to 25 years to life. Because when you're trying to stay "off the grid" the best currency to use is the one with your name, number, and address on it.
