Celebrities live their lives in the public eye. Someone always wants to know what they’re up to, where they’re going, who they’re dating.
It’s amazing to me that anyone could put up with a life like that. Not only are the constantly monitored, but they are criticized incessantly in magazines and TV shows. But, the stories that really hit the headlines are when celebrities die. And not all of the deaths are black and white, some are unsolvable.
Of course, some celebrities died long before DNA testing came about, but some of the more recent deaths have left authorities scratching their heads. Here are the 10 most mysterious celebrity deaths.
10. Johnny Stompanato
His name may not be popular, but his story will amaze you. Stompanato had been dating actress Lana Turner in 1958, and was allegedly abusive. So the story goes that Turner’s teenage daughter Cheryl Crane stabbed Stompanato to protect her mother. This is what she admitted in court and the case was ruled a justifiable homicide. But after the murder, rumors started to surface that it was possibly Lana Turner who killed her boyfriend and then let her daughter take the blame, knowing she would receive a lighter sentence or none at all. Crane continues to claim it was she who killed Stompanato, but we may never know for sure.
9. Natalie Wood
Wood was taking a yacht trip with her husband, Robert Wagner, in 1981. The story goes that she accidentally drowned, but the case was reopened in 2011 when the captain of the boat, Dennis Davern, came forward with more information. He claims that Wood had a fight with her husband Wagner, and shortly after was nowhere to be found. Her body was not found until the next morning. The ruling on the case was changed to a drowning with other undetermined factors. But all this did was leave more questions.
