    Man who attempted robbery of Greg Raymer in 2004 dead at age 47

    Some of you might remember when Greg Raymer was the victim of an attempted robbery in front of his Bellagio hotel room.

    This occurred on December 20, 2004 -- about six months after Raymer had won the Main Event.

    He had just finished playing a Bellagio cash game, and was carrying $150,000 back to his hotel room. Two men followed him, pulled a gun, and ordered him to go inside his room with them. Fearing they would take the money and shoot him dead inside the room, Raymer fought back, knocked one of them down, and the two men fled empty-handed.

    They were later apprehended in San Diego at a gun show, attempting to sell toy helicopters. They were identified as Deen Cassim and Kevin R. Joy, and the cops had been on the hunt for them since finding them on video surveillance following Raymer.

    Both were sentenced to 3-12 years in state prison.

    Kevin R. Joy was always a large guy, and ballooned to over 400 pounds. He died on August 22, 2017 in Las Vegas, at the age of 47.

    According to a friend of his who I know, Joy died while having sex (!!)

    The death has not been reported yet anywhere in poker media, and only appears on one obituary site right now.

    A strange story also surrounded his accomplice, Deen Cassim.

    In 2006, Cassim was unexpectedly released early from prison, as he offered to turn informant against a husband-and-wife bodybuilder team, who were suspected of murder. Cassim apparently had some involvement with them at the time of the murder, and wore a wire in order to get a coded confession from them.

    Bodybuilders Craig Titus and Kelly Ryan were eventually convicted of the murder of assistant Melissa James, who was also having an affair with Titus. This conviction was a result of guilty pleas, which were done partially due to Cassim's cooperation in wearing the wire. Titus will be in prison for awhile. Ryan will be released next month.

    Was an interesting read on Realgrinders group on FB and the discussion how a bad decision killed him. Most of us can agree bad decisions killed him having sex wasn't it. Most only dream they could go out with a bang so to speak. His bad decisions included many involving his health and dietary choices. Plus the karma from trying to rob Raymer.

    Was his robbery involving prostitutes or was it never established or is it a known fact it wasn't. I always assumed some hoes set him up.

    I bet that Titus guy was ashamed and embarrassed by how much of a fatso his accomplice had become in later years.
