STARS DEATHS THAT ARE STILL UNSOLVED
Added on: 17th Sep 2016
Tall, blonde and gorgeous, Christa Helm could count only bit
parts on Wonder Woman and Starsky and Hutch as her high
points. But she excelled at parties and in bedrooms in the
Hollywood Hills, where she consorted with the likes of
Warren Beatty, Mick Jagger, Joe Namath, and the Shah of Iran
among others. Helm kept details of her trysts in her “sex”
diary and that is why after she was found stabbed and
bludgeoned to death one night in 1977 on a street in
West Hollywood, police suspected she had been killed
because of what she knew.
Virginia Rappe was an American model and silent-film
actress in the early days of the twentieth century. The
circumstances of her death in 1921 became a Hollywood
scandal and were covered widely by the media at the time.
During a party on Labour Day, September 5, 1921, she was
in a hotel room with fellow silent-film actor Roscoe “Fatty”
Arbuckle in San Francisco. Rappe allegedly suffered a
trauma and died on September 9 from a ruptured bladder
and secondary peritonitis. Arbuckle was charged with her
murder. Some believed he squashed her with his weight
while raping her, others believe he raped her with a foreign
object, causing peritonitis. Unfortunately, we will probably
never know what happened that night.
JonBenet Patricia Ramsey was a six-year-old American girl who
was murdered in her home in Boulder, Colorado, in 1996. Police
found her body in the basement of the family home about
eight hours after she was reported missing. She had been struck
on the head and strangled. The case remains unsolved, even
after several grand jury hearings, and it continues to
generate public and media interest.
During the making of her last film Brainstorm, Wood drowned
while on a weekend boat trip to Santa Catalina Island, in
California, with her husband Robert Wagner, Brainstorm co-star
Christopher Walken, and the boat’s captain, Dennis Davern.
Many facts surrounding her drowning are unknown, because
no one admitted seeing how she entered the water. Authorities
discovered Wood’s body at 8 a.m. on November 29th, 1981, a
mile away from the boat, and a small inflatable dinghy beached
nearby. According to Wagner, when he went to bed, Wood
was not there. The autopsy report revealed Wood had bruises
on her body and arms as well as an abrasion on her left cheek
that made many fans believe she was murdered by her
Jimmy Hoffa, a notorious gangster and labour union president,
had one of the most mysterious deaths of the twentieth century.
He was last seen in the parking lot of a restaurant in Bloomfield
Township, Michigan, in 1975 while waiting to meet with a local
mobster and a union leader from New Jersey to settle a feud.
However, the mobsters never showed up. Hoffa’s car was found
in the parking lot the next day, but there were no clues as to
what happened to him. He was finally declared legally dead in
1982, though his body was never recovered and
speculations as to what happened abound to this day.
On July 20th, 1973, Bruce had a headache and was given a
prescription for Equagesic. After taking it, he lapsed into a
coma and could not be revived. A coroner’s inquest
determined he had a severe allergic reaction to one of the
ingredients in the painkiller. This reaction caused an increase
in the cerebrospinal fluid in the brain, and he died the same
day at age thirty-two while filming Enter The Dragon. However,
many conspiracy theorists and fans were not convinced by the
explanation and claim to this day that Lee was murdered either
by the Triads (a Chinese transnational organized crime
organization based in Hong Kong), or that he died from a
Dim Mak (a “death strike”) he received from his master as
a young man, a Shaolin monk.
There’s a question shadowing Diana’s death since 1997:
Did she die in a car accident while running from aggressive
paparazzi, or did the Royal Family stage the accident to
keep her from marrying Muslim billionaire Dodi Al-Fayed and
having his baby? The world will never know, unless results
of the newly opened investigation reveal interesting details
around this tragedy.
Marilyn Monroe was found dead on August 5th, 1962, in the
bedroom of her Brentwood home by her psychiatrist,
Dr. Ralph Greenson. She was thirty-six. Her death was
determined to have been caused by a barbiturate overdose
and was ruled a probable suicide. However, there are many
theories that claim she may have been murdered, with many
of these involving President John F. Kennedy and his
