Theres a case to be made that media prurience and the desire to make a news cycle out of a tragedy ends up rendering every celebrity death mysterious. After all, there are enough bird-brained conspiracy theorists out there wholl naively aid and abet a cynical editorial decision to extend the lifespan of a story in order to sell advertising space. Then there are the deaths which dont need to rely on delusion and the dollar to look suspicious. The murders that seem to stretch credibility, the accidents that dont quite look like accidents, and the completely unexplained. After all, a celebritys life is full of weirdness: rabid fans and stalkers, more money than sense, a disconnection from real life, drug and/or alcohol dependency all of these things can provide the fertile ground for something dodgy to happen. When you look at it like that, its surprising it doesnt happen more often. Here they are a selection of the most perplexing stories of fatal celebrity misfortune youll ever hear about, stories which dont need the overcomplication of exaggeration and irrational thought processes to appear suspicious.
