Dave Navarro’s Mother was Murdered When He was a Teen and Now He’s Talking about It

“It was darkest, most horrible moment of my life.”

In 1983, Dave Navarro’s mother, Constance, was murdered by her ex-boyfriend. Dave Navarro was only 15 years old. The killer, John Riccardi, was a fugitive for eight years – until the TV show America’s Most Wanted aired a segment about him. Riccardi was eventually arrested in 1991 and convicted two years later. In a new documentary, Mourning Son, the Jane’s Addiction guitarist and Ink Master host opens up about losing his mother as a teen. Navarro details what it was like being a touring musician while his mother’s killer was on the run, and how it led him to several battles with addiction.
