Former Colts LB Eric Naposki Found Guilty of Killing Millionaire

Former Colts LB Eric Naposki has been found guilty of killing a millionaire some 17 years ago.

A former NFL linebacker was found guilty Thursday of shooting a wealthy Newport Beach businessman to death in his seafront home in a plot to collect on a $1 million life insurance policy. Eric Naposki, a onetime linebacker with the New England Patriots and Indianapolis Colts, allegedly plotted William McLaughlin’s murder with the businessman’s fiancee, Nanette Ann Packard. The slaying had been one of the more perplexing unsolved homicides in Orange County until Naposki and Nanette Ann Packard were arrested in 1999. The ex-football player, who at the time of the slaying was working as a bouncer at the Thunderbird Nightclub in Newport Beach, was accused of entering McLaughlin’s home with a key Packard had provided and then shooting McLaughlin, 55, six times in the chest. Authorities said Packard and Naposki were romantically involved at the time of the incident.
