Billy Graham’s son-in-law dies


RALEIGH (AP) — The son-in-law of the Rev. Billy Graham has died after being found unresponsive in the swimming pool of the Raleigh home he shared with evangelist Anne Graham Lotz.

Seventy-eight-year-old Danny Lotz, who played on the 1957 North Carolina men’s basketball team that was undefeated in 32 games in winning the NCAA national championship, died Wednesday. That’s according to Rex Hospital, which issued a statement for the Lotz family. The retired dentist was taken off life support two days after he was admitted to the hospital.

A statement on Anne Lotz’s Facebook page said the couple had been married for 49 years and her husband suffered from heart disease that required five arterial stents.
