30 Mysterious Celebrity Deaths That More People Should Be Talking About

Ask Reddit has brought up some mysterious celebrity deaths that still haven’t been solved.

 2. Brandon Lee (Bruce Lee’s son) was gunned down on a movie set because someone replaced the blanks with real bullets.

3. Natalie Wood. I think Christopher Walken and her husband at the time, Robert Wagner, who were with her on the night she died, have some explaining to do. Nobody can seem to get their story straight, and there seems to be A LOT of smoke.

“During the making of the film Brainstorm, Wood drowned at age 43 while on a weekend boat trip to Catalina Island on board Wagner’s yacht, Splendour. Many of the circumstances surrounding her drowning are unknown; it was never determined how she entered the water. She was with her husband Robert Wagner, Brainstorm co-star Christopher Walken, and Splendour’s captain, Dennis Davern, on the evening of November 28, 1981. Wood’s body was recovered by authorities at 8:00 a.m. on November 29, one mile away from the boat, with a small Valiant-brand inflatable dinghy, found beached nearby. According to Wagner, when he went to bed, Wood was not there. The autopsy report revealed that Wood had bruises on her body and arms as well as an abrasion on her left cheek.”

“After a 30-year hiatus, the case was reopened in November 2011 after Davern publicly stated that he had lied to police during the initial investigation and that Wood and Wagner had an argument that evening. He alleged that Wood had been flirting with Walken, that Wagner was jealous and enraged, and that following Wood’s disappearance, Wagner had kept Davern from turning on the search lights and notifying authorities. According to Davern, Wagner was responsible for Wood’s death. Walken hired a lawyer, cooperated with the investigation, and was not considered a suspect by authorities.”

“In February 2018, Wagner was named a person of interest in the investigation into Wood’s death. He has denied any involvement.”
