Former Oklahoma State wrestler Ray Murphy died in his Tulsa home Tuesday, 40 years after he was paralyzed from the neck down in a wrestling accident. He was 62.

Murphy was a two-time NCAA Division I All-American for the Cowboys. However, the accident took place during an April 1970 freestyle tournament in Stillwater, Oklahoma sponsored by the U.S. Wrestling Federation (predecessor to today's USA Wrestling).
