10 Unsolved Celebrity Deaths That Still Have Us Baffled

Celebrities come in all different shapes, sizes, and levels of fame, but despite their differences, they’ve all experienced the same ending — death. While some of these deaths were expected and prepared for ahead of time (e.g., Michael Jackson’s legendary This Is It shows), others came out of the blue and still perplex us to this day. Here are 10 mysterious celebrity deaths that are still unsolved… yet still have us baffled. [Editor’s note: We have added an extra sentence that details the reader what they will learn in the article]

10) Tupac Shakur

Shakur was shot in Las Vegas on September 7, 1996 and died six days later at 4:03 p.m. His killer remains unknown, despite a plethora of theories that have been debated by the media since the shooting. Suge Knight, Biggie Smalls, Orlando Anderson and Sean ‘Puffy’ Combs are just some of those that have been accused by public figures and members of the hip-hop community.

9) Andy Kaufman

Actor, writer and professional wrestler Andy Kaufman has been called the most successful comic in the 20th century. He also remains one of Hollywood’s biggest mysteries after his death in 1984. Some speculate that he faked his own death because his performance-art persona was so well developed and he wanted to create one final grand prank.

8) Bob Crane

Robert Edward Crane was best known as Colonel Hogan on TV’s Hogan’s Heroes but his death, in 1978, had a strange twist. When Bob died, the autopsy was inconclusive. The coroner ruled it accidental and found no evidence of foul play. However, he also did not find any drugs or alcohol in Crane’s system that could have caused his death either which made the cause of death unknown.

7) Steve Irwin

Steve Irwin is one of the most famous celebrity deaths on this list. He was well known for his role in hosting and narrating the Emmy Award winning nature documentary series, The Crocodile Hunter. On September 4th 2006, he was fatally stabbed by a stingray’s barb while snorkelling off the Great Barrier Reef near Port Douglas and Ayer’s Rock, an event that was broadcast internationally.

6) JonBenet Ramsey

JonBenet Ramsey was a six-year-old child beauty queen who lived in Boulder, Colorado. On December 26th, 1996, she was reported missing by her parents and subsequently found to have been brutally murdered. She had been strangled and the entire crime scene had been staged. Her father, John Ramsey, declared that he thought the murderer had been someone from outside the family.

5) Paul Walker

In 2013, the death of actor Paul Walker shook the world and still has many people wondering how it could have happened. His two friends and business partners had been driving at high speeds in a car that would eventually crash into a palm tree, with Paul dying shortly after. Questions still linger as to how he got into the passenger seat, who was driving and what caused the accident in the first place.

4) Chris Benoit

An American professional wrestler, Chris Benoit was often referred to as the Canadian Crippler. The body of his wife, Nancy, and son Daniel were found murdered at their home on June 24th 2007. Following the incident, investigators discovered illegal steroids in the house and noted it would seem likely that he committed suicide.

3) Bob Woolmer

Bob Woolmer was an internationally renowned cricket coach who led the Pakistani team to a World Cup victory. He was found dead in his hotel room on March 18, 2007, hours before the opening game of Pakistan’s participation in the 2007 Cricket World Cup. Initial reports and press statements suggested he had died from natural causes.
But then two post-mortems were conducted and each came to a different conclusion as to how he had died.

2) Michael Jackson

On June 25, 2009, Michael Jackson died of acute propofol and benzodiazepine intoxication at his home on North Carolwood Drive in Los Angeles. The singer’s personal physician, Conrad Murray, called 9-1-1 about twenty minutes after the star had experienced difficulty breathing during a drug-fueled sleep. Murray didn’t give Michael the anti-anxiety medication prescribed for him by his other doctor because he was in a rush to take MJ’s children to visit their grandmother across town.

1) The Black Dahlia Murder Mystery

Often considered to be one of the most famous unsolved murders in Hollywood, Elizabeth Short, also known as The Black Dahlia, was brutally murdered and cut in half. There are many suspects but her murderer was never identified.
