After the shooting, the multimillionaire locked himself in his mansion for two days while he
negotiated with police on the telephone. Police turned off his power and were able to
capture him when he went outside to fix his heater.



On February 25, 1997, a jury found DuPont guilty of third degree murder but mentally ill.



Expert psychiatric testimony described duPont as a paranoid schizophrenic
who believed Schultz was part of an international conspiracy to kill him.



Experts at the trial testified that duPont suffers from paranoid schizophrenia.



DuPont was sentenced to 13 to 30 years incarceration and is currently housed at the State
Correctional Institute-Mercer, a minimum-security institution in the Pennsylvania prison system.

On 26 January 1996 John DuPont shot dead Olympic gold medalist wrestler David Schultz
