May 29, 2013 - by Steve Gerweck
In total, there are 12 criminal sexual misconduct charges that have been filed by Kandiyohi County, MN Attorney Jennifer Fischer against Eugene Otto Zumhofe, who is 62 years of age.
Zumhofe’s daughter, now 29, came forward in March with details of the abuse that occurred while she was a teenager.
Unconditional bond has been set at $500,000 and the conditional bond is $100,000, with the stipulation that he cannot have any contact whatsoever with the victim.
A source with personal experiences with both Zumhofe and his daughter tells GERWECK.NET, “I so, so proud of Heather for finally standing up.” When learning of Zumhofe’s arrest, the source reacted, “it is long overdue.”
The source worked with Zumhofe and his daughter in the former AWA star’s Rock & Roll Wrestling promotion, which toured the Midwestern states. “Heather was with the company when I started, we were really good friends. We went to Cauliflower Alley in Vegas, and she met her hubby. She left the company, and it sucked, because we knew something was going on, but were kind of stuck there for a bit financially. It’s hard to work for a monster. I finally was able to leave last September. It took me a long time to go back to wrestling. It’s like it took part of my soul. The whole thing messed up Heather and my friendship too,” the source indicated to GERWECK.NET
