Top 10 Unsolved Hollywood Murders

This is a top ten list of the most famous American Celebrities who were killed and the crimes are Unsolved.

1. Natalie Wood (1938-1981) Acctress Natalie Wood was remarried to actor Robert Wagner. Wood and Wagner went on a boat trip in the water accompanied by actor Christopher Walken and Dennis Davern (Boat Captain). The circumstances fishy because how could none of the three people know that she fell into the water. Pardon the pun but something seems fishy about this situation. This story sends tingles up my spine every time I think about it.

2. Marilyn Monroe (1926-1962) Monroe died from an overdose of barbiturates but, whether it was accidental, a homicide or a suicide is not exactly clear. She never expressed that she was depressed to a level of suicidal thoughts. The coroner's final say was "Probable Suicide" but, others contend that she was in a tangled affair with President Kennedy, which led to her ultimate demise.

3. Black Dahlia (Elizabeth Short) (1924-1947) This was a gruesome crime that was intensified because, the victim was cut into lots of pieces and scattered around. She was found cut in half in a park located in Los Angeles, California and the crime has never been solved. Her face was sliced up and her body was completely emptied of blood. Short was an aspiring actress but, she was also a part time waitress.

4. Tupac Shakur (1971-1996) Tupac Shakur was shot and killed in Las Vegas, Nevada after leaving a Mike Tyson boxing match. 2Pac is a legendary rap star and he was shot and killed on the Las Vegas strip in busy traffic but, yet there were zero witnesses. Hmmmm. Suge Knight sustained a gun shot to the head that grazed him but, he lived. He was driving a black luxury car when Tupac was shot. Tupac took numerous bullets and somehow the perpetrator or perpetrators got away scot free. Also, strangely, there were no witnesses to the crime. No one would come forward. They would seem like a snitch.

5. George Reeves (1914-1959) George Reeves starred as Superman on the hit show Adventures of Superman. He was found dead in his home from a single handgun shot to the head. The official ruling remains suicide but many contend that Reeves was murdered in his own bedroom. One problem is that if Reeves shot himself then Why was their no gunpowder was found on George Reeves's skin.

6. Bob Crane (1928-1978) Crane was a disc jockey before hitting it big in prime time television with Hogan's Heroes. He was found bludgeoned to death in his Arizona apartment flat. The murder remains Unsolved over 35 years after it happened. They never found the murder weapon but the police did find an electrical cord wrapped tightly around Crane's neck. Crane seemed to have been murdered but their was not enough evidence or clues to accuse anyone.

7. Notorious B.I.G. AKA Chris Wallace (1972-1977) Biggie Smalls was killed in a drive by shooting in Los Angeles, California. Many theories surrounding this hip hop legend's death have emerged over the years. Some say he was killed by the L.A.P.D. while others believe he was killed in revenge for Tupac's death which many had blamed on The Notorious B.I.G.

8. David Carradine 1936-2009) Actor David Carradine died of Asphyxiation in his hotel room in Thailand. The coroners said that it was not a suicide it was accidental asphyxiation. Two of Carradine's ex's claimed that he loved getting choked and it was a fetish of his. So the question becomes Did Carradine choke himself or did someone else choke him and run off when they realized he was dead?

9. Brandon Lee (1965-1993) Bruce Lee's son was an action film star on the rise when he was shot and killed while making the movie The Crow. Many people feel Lee was killed because of past issues with his daddy, Bruce Lee. Lee was shot by another actor on the movie set ust the gun had realbullets even though it was supposed to have blanks.

10. Nicole Brown Simpson (1959-1994) O.J. Simpson's wife was murdered with a knife at her home in Los Angeles, California. O.J. Simpson was charged with her murder but was later found innocent. The case which was the most publicized in history remains unsolved even though theories persist.
