The story of Sammy Stewart
The Boston Globe
Stewart panhandled and conned friends, family and strangers, even former teammates for money to spend on drugs before he was sent to prison. Stewart had two kids with cystic fibrosis. His son Colin died in 1991 at the age of 11, while his daughter, Alicia, recovered from a double lung transplant last year.
