Family members gather at wrestling match to honor slain son

NORWALK - Family members of Neil Godleski gathered at Norwalk High School for a memorial wrestling match that now bears his name.

Police say the 31-year-old from Norwalk was riding his bike home from work in Washington, D.C. when he was robbed and murdered in 2010.

Godleski's sister says he was an avid wrestler and his family plans to put the money that is raised at the Neil Godleski Invitational into a scholarship in his honor.

The family says they expect to see the accused killer on trial in the coming months.

To participate or contribute, call 203-838-4481, ext. 8, or visit Norwalk High Sports.
