HOUSTON, TX -  Hey Maury Povich fans, this one's for you!  But you need to keep track of the players.

The Vegas Ferris wheel fornicator. His stripper fiancé. His 21-yearold New York fellow Ferris wheel hookup. And the two guys with a gun in the back seat of the car.

Got it? Now here's the story.

The Houston man caught on video having sex on a Las Vegas Ferris wheel last month, is dead.  Twenty-seven year old Phillip Panzica was shot and killed in front of his fiancé outside a Houston strip club where she was working. He was driving fiancé Mistie Bozant's car. Apparently, two suspects were already in the back seat and one of them told Panzica to, “Come clean.”

Who knows what that means, but the guy supposedly said it right before pumping Panzica full of lead.  The pair then dumped his body on the side of the road, ordered Bozant out of the car, and took off with her cash.

After a police chase, Bryant Watts and Aaron Jones were eventually arrested and charged with capital murder.

Panzica leaves behind parents, three siblings and a 3-year-old son. A GoFundMe page has been set up to pay for his funeral.

As far as the Vegas incident, what happened there was shared everywhere. Panzica and his 21-year-old hookup landed in jail after refusing to stop (you know) on the High Roller.

Panzica initially faced felony charges but was expected to plead guilty to a misdemeanor. So, after getting off, uh, the ride with a woman who was not his fiancé, he was gonna get off easy.

Could this be a case of what goes around, comes around???
