I think John and Wai on Review-A-Raw articulated my feelings better than I could. But I will point out that Snuka was not acquitted, he was deemed mentally unfit to stand trial. I know that still falls under the umbrella of "innocent until proven guilty" but it shouldn't be ignored that he was never actually cleared of the charges levied against him, not to mention that he was found culpable in a civil trial.

It really has tainted his legacy, a hell of a career that is now marred by this murder case. It's strange but this didn't get the outcry that I thought it would when I read about his death, usually I come across a ton of posts online when a wrestling legend dies but didn't see much for Jimmy.
the media reports of his death that I saw I thought all did a good job of bringing this up. Yeah they talked about his pro wrestling heyday, but every single article I read (maybe 4 or 5) also brought up the Nancy death.
