Rockson Gracie Death!!!

A blue belt from Rickson Graice's gym came and worked out at my local bjj gym. He told me that Rickson doesnt spend a lot of time there and spends a lot of time in seclusion after the death of his son Rockson. I read on the internet that Rockson died in a motorcycle accident, but after talking to this guy he told me that gangsters in nyc killed rockson and that the accident story was a cover. has anyone else heard this?

A topic like this really should be searched for first.

You know, I heard that rumor about him running away and getting killed in NYC a long time ago, before I ever heard about a motorcycle accident. It's possible it's true but who knows.

I heard somewhere that his death was possibly 'drug related', but I don't know if it's true or not.

I won't go into details, but a guy I train with grew up with Rocksons brother. Apparently what happened was Rockson got a 'boat' of ecstasy from some dealers, skipped town with it, they caught up to him, and the rest is history.

Really sad story and the family does NOT speak about it whatsoever.
