Biographical Information[edit]

Doug Slaten was drafted by the Arizona Diamondbacks in the 17th round of the 2000 amateur draft. He was signed by scout Hal Kurtzman and made his pro debut that summer.

After he passed away at age 36 in 2016, Nikki Frederick, his girlfriend and mother of his daughter who was born that same year, kept his remains and eventually buried them in the side yard of a home she bought in Burlington, KY in 2018. Unfortunately, when a builder began construction work on the lot next door in January 2020, the unmarked grave was disturbed due to improper shoring up of the ground, and the urn that contained his remains went missing. She filed a $1.5 million lawsuit against the company for trespassing, negligence and desecration of a grave.
