    MIKE MENTZER DIES OF HEART ATTACK — HIS BROTHER RAY FOUND DEAD THIS MORNING!
    Mike Mentzer, legendary bodybuilding competitor and writer, died suddenly Saturday, June 9, of an apparent heart attack. Mentzer’s body was discovered by his younger brother Ray Mentzer Sunday in the apartment they shared in Redondo Beach, California. Then, in a shocking development, Ray Mentzer was found dead this morning, June 12. The cause of death has not been determined as of this time. We'll bring you more details of this developing story as soon as possible. Mike Mentzer was 49 years old. Ray Mentzer was 47.
    According to John Balik, publisher of Ironman, where the elder Mentzer most recently worked, Mike had been in ill health lately and was contemplating treatment for his ongoing cardiac problems. In past interviews, Mike had mentioned that his family had a history of heart disease, and that his own father died relatively young from a heart condition.
    Mentzer was the creator of the popular Heavy Duty training system, and his articles appeared for decades in many of Joe Weider’s publications. While he never won the Mr. Olympia, Mentzer was considered to have one of the greatest physiques of his time.
    We’ll have much more on Mike and Ray Mentzer in a future issue of FLEX magazine.

    anthony, i'm not disagreeing with you, but you know the media and bodybuilders.. the media doesn't give a **** about body builders, and i'm sure they're not going to talk about the death of a bodybuilder.

    chicken- that's 'cause he's a famous actor.

    if like say... lee priest died, do you think they'd have a huge spread? they'd probably say, "some steroid pumped body builder by the name of lee priest died today.. now on to other news" if even that.

    Sorry...I didn`t mean to make it sound that way...what my meaning was that everyone would want to go to there sight excitedly to find out what is going on...kind of like telling a class of kids to come to the window cause Santa is there...no insult to anyone here.

    If this is true, I am not surprised, but it is sad. I will say a prayer for them tonight. I think this is a good warning for a lot of people out there, if you have a family history of cardiovascular problems, don't fu*k with steroids, better yet, don't take them no matter what.

    I'm afraid it's true. Lots of credible news sources have been reporting it. I wonder what on earth could have caused this whacko stuff. Do you all think Ray killed himself? Do you think they were poisoned? What could have happened?
