Former Wrestler Daniel Rodimer Charged With Murder At Las Vegas Party

 May 9, 2024

Daily Mail reported that Daniel Rodimer, a former WWE wrestler turned politician accused of murder, was seen in a video dressed as Ken with his wife as Barbie on the night he allegedly killed a cocaine supplier.

Daniel Rodimer has been indicted on murder charges after allegedly killing a cocaine supplier during a Halloween party in Las Vegas last year.

At 45 years old, Daniel Rodimer attended a glamorous Halloween party at Resorts World in Las Vegas. The evening took a tragic turn involving the death of Christopher Tapp, a known cocaine supplier.

Indictment and Plea: Legal Proceedings Begin

Following the events of last October, a grand jury indicted Rodimer last month, and his arraignment occurred on May 8, 2024. Rodimer's legal team, represented by high-profile attorneys David Chesnoff and Richard Schonfeld, argue his innocence, indicating plans to challenge the validity of the indictment.

David Chesnoff and Richard Schonfeld made clear their defense strategy, arguing against the indictment's basis. They plan a fierce legal battle to clear Rodimer's name.

A witness from the party, Dani Lyons, provided damning testimony against Rodimer. She recalled Rodimer growing violent after declining cocaine from Tapp, reacting explosively at the sight of a rolled-up $100 bill. According to Lyons, Rodimer perceived a threat to his daughter, which triggered the altercation leading to Tapp's death.

Dani Lyons testified before a grand jury saying, "I vividly remember him saying 'If you give my daughter any of that I will [expletive] kill you.'"

Wife's Testimony and Texts Reveal Inner Turmoil

Further complicating Rodimer's defense are text exchanges between him and his wife, Sarah Rodimer, who was also dressed as Barbie that night. In texts revealed during the investigation, Sarah Rodimer expressed her horror and labeled her husband's actions as murderous.

Sarah Rodimer's texts paint a bleak picture of the night's events. In one exchange, she expressed her disbelief and horror to Daniel Rodimer: "I watched you murder somebody like let that sink in you psychopath."

Security at the venue initially suggested an accidental fall, led by another party sponsor, John Odom, who claimed Tapp slipped on sneakers. However, the subsequent police investigation, propelled by persistent demands from Tapp's family and friends, concluded differently. The Clark County medical examiner ruled the cause of death as homicide resulting from blunt force trauma to the head.

Looming Legal Battles and Public Scrutiny

Daniel Rodimer, father of six and a once hopeful political figure following his wrestling career, finds his life under intense scrutiny from the law, the public, and his family. With a trial set for February 3, 2025, and an upcoming court status check on August 8, 2024, Rodimer remains out on bail, awaiting the chance to definitively clear his name or face the consequences.

In closing arguments, attorney John Thomas, representing Tapp's family, emphasized their mission to uncover the truth and uphold Tapp's legacy. He expressed the family's resolve to seek justice in memory of Christopher Tapp, portraying the case as a trial of an individual and a test of the entire legal process.

The conclusion of this case, entangled with high-profile figures, allegations of violence, and legal challenges, will no doubt persist in the public's memory, serving as a stark example of how quickly fame and fortune can spiral into infamy and scrutiny.
