Multi-millionaire Ted Binion, son and heir to the estate of cowboy gangster and gambler Benny Binion who helped mold Las Vegas, was found dead in his million-dollar home on September 17, 1998. Binion's girlfriend, a one-time exotic dancer, and her lover, Rick Tabish, a contractor from Missoula, Montana, each were convicted, then, in a second trial, acquitted of killing Binion by forcing him to swallow a mixture of black tar heroin and the sedative Xanax.
