3. Jim Morrison (1943-1971)
Cause of death: Congestive heart failure

Known as the front man for one of the most iconic bands of the 70’s, The Doors, was found dead in his bathtub on July 3rd, 1971. Now nobody thinks that Morrison was killed exactly, by killed I mean, shot, stabbed, you know the basic murder techniques. But many people think that Morrison faked his death to get away from the police. Why would he want to get away from the police you might ask? Well apparently, I’m saying apparently because I’m not that big of a Doors fan and I just recently found this out, Morrison was arrested earlier in 1963 for “Disturbing the peace.” In 1966 he was arrested for “sexual assault.” In 1967 he was arrested for “inciting a riot.” In 1968 he was arrested for “public drunkenness” again. In 1969 he was arrested for “lewd and lascivious behavior, indecent exposure, and once again public drunkenness.” And finally in 1970 he was arrested once again for “public drunkenness.” I’m not entirely sure if any of these rumors of him wanting to go on the run to start a new life with a clean record are true, but my gosh this guy was a troublemaker for sure.

2. Amy Winehouse (1983-2011)
Cause of death: Alcohol intoxication

Amy Winehouse died a very mysterious death seeing as how she died of alcohol intoxication. But she was also covered in bruises as if someone had beaten her. Bruises covered her arms, legs, and even her face as her body was found in her home. She definitely DID die of alcohol intoxication, but conspiracies think that the only reason she drank so much was because of her abusive ex-husband, Blake Fielder-Civil. Now of course, Blake denied all claims that he had ever abused her and actually blamed it on the drugs that she had frequently taken.

1. Kurt Cobain (1967-1994)
Cause of death: Suicide by gunshot

There are all sorts of conspiracies that follow the death of the lead guitarist and lead singer of the alternative rock band, Nirvana. Kurt Cobain lived a simple life of a rock star as any other 90’s rock star would. But that was the problem. Kurt didn’t want to live the simple life of a rock star. Cobain in fact hated the fact that his band was popular. He hated being the most popular band of the early to mid-90. Aside from that, everyone was surprised to see that Kurt Cobain had taken it to the level where he shot himself with a shotgun in his home on April 8th, 1994. Or did he? First off, let’s talk about the final days of the rock star just before he was found dead. Before Cobain’s death he had a letter in one of his notebooks, Kurt wrote in notebooks all the time and filled them with song lyrics, but in this notebook, Cobain wrote that he planned on not only leaving the band Nirvana, but he also planned on divorcing his wife, Courtney Love. Obviously people think that Courtney killed Kurt, as most people have heard, but I’ve got more conspiracies. There was this interview that the “Kurt and Courtney” documentary held and they interviewed El Duce. El Duce was the drummer and vocalist for the heavy metal/punk rock band, Mentors, who formed in Seattle. Anyways, in this interview, El Duce mentioned that Courtney Love offered El Duce money to “whack” Kurt Cobain. Apparently Duce and Love were close friends. Anyways, after this interview, only about 2 days later, Duce was found dead on railroad tracks, decapitated. People think that Love had him killed because he gave out “information” on what she did before she “killed Kurt.” I can’t say any of this is true of not, but I also wouldn’t doubt it because come on. Courtney Love is insane out of her mind. Even her lawyer didn’t think that Cobain wrote the final note that was next to his body. The letter looked like it was written as a thank you to someone Cobain had recently worked with. The final words didn’t even look like it was in Cobain’s writing.
