Ted and Sandy
Ted Binion was 52 and married when he met 23-year-old Sandy Murphy at a topless bar on the Strip. Shortly after meeting the young blond Southern California native, Binion's wife moved out of their palatial home and Murphy moved in.
Murphy maintained that despite Binion's well-known reputation, she had not heard of him before their first meeting and was not interested in him for his money.
According to Binion's gardener, their relationship was volatile and often turned violent.
