Ted Binion was once the part owner of the Horseshoe Casino in Las Vegas.
He died in 1998.
His live in girlfriend at the time, Sandy Murphy, became infamous when it was alleged that she killed Binion for his silver fortune. Her accomplice was said to have been her lover, Rick Tabish.
To this day there are people who debate the details of what all really happened to Binion. Whatever the truth of the matter is, the loss of Ted devastated the Binion family & his friends as well.
When these tragedies happen, it's often the alleged perps who get the limelight while the victim is too often forgotten, and that is a sad state of affairs that compounds the tragedy.
