Summary
On January 26, 1996, Dave Schultz, Olympic gold-medal winner and wrestling golden boy, was shot three times by du Pont family heir John E. du Pont at the famed Foxcatcher Farms estate in Pennsylvania. Following the murder there was a tense standoff when du Pont barricaded himself in his home for two days before he was finally captured. How did such a horrifying, senseless murder happen? Dave and his brother, Mark, were both gold medal-winning wrestlers who should have been at the peak of their careers. Du Pont came from a life of privilege that seems completely at odds with his catastrophic break from reality. Mark Schultz takes us through his remarkable wrestling career from high school to world and Olympic championships, revealing both the triumphs of his career and the personal and financial struggles that gave him no choice but to join forces with the eccentric, controlling do Pont
