-- As we noted last week here on the website, former wrestler, booker and manager Dutch Mantel (real name Wayne Keown) suffered the tragic loss of his 16 year old granddaughter, Amelia. She was killed in a collision by a speeding car driver who was being pursued by a local state trooper. Amelia was driving home from school at the time. Mantel recently made the following post to Facebook:
FB family...my dear sweet precious Amelia has gone from this earth. She was cremated Friday morning. My daughter and Amelia loved to travel and one of the places little Amelia loved best was the Grand Canyon. Amelia called it the most beautiful place on earth. Amanda wants to go and spread her ashes to the winds there but she needs a little help. If you can, donate a few dollars via Paypal to help Amanda realize this goal. If you can, you can. If not, Amanda loves you. You can donate to the fund via PayPal at [email protected] Love be to all of you who have helped us get through this nightmare of a ordeal.
