The Mad Monk's amazing murder:

"On December 16, 1916, having decided that Rasputin’s influence over the Tsaritsa had made him a threat to the empire, a group of nobles led by Prince Felix Yusupov and the Grand Duke Dmitri Pavlovich and the right-wing politician Vladimir Purishkevich apparently lured Rasputin to the Yusupovs’ Moika Palace by intimating that Yusupov’s wife, Princess Irina, would be present and receiving friends. (In point of fact, she was away in the Crimea.)The group led him down to the cellar, where they served him cakes and red wine laced with a massive amount of cyanide. According to legend, Rasputin was unaffected, although Vasily Maklakov had supplied enough poison to kill five men.

Determined to finish the job, Prince Yusupov became anxious about the possibility that Rasputin might live until the morning, leaving the conspirators no time to conceal his body. Yusupov ran upstairs to consult the others and then came back down to shoot Rasputin through the back with a revolver. Rasputin fell, and the company left the palace for a while. Yusupov, who had left without a coat, decided to return to get one, and while at the palace, he went to check on the body. Suddenly, Rasputin opened his eyes and lunged at Yusupov. He grabbed Yusupov, ominously whispered in his ear, “you bad boy,” and attempted to strangle him. At that moment, however, the other conspirators arrived and fired at Rasputin. After being hit three times in the back, he fell once more. As they neared his body, the party found that, remarkably, he was still alive, struggling to get up. They clubbed him into submission. Some accounts say that his killers also sexually mutilated him, severing his penis. After binding his body and wrapping him in a carpet, they threw him into the icy Neva River. He broke out of his bonds and the carpet wrapping him, but drowned in the river.

Three days later, Rasputin’s body, poisoned, shot four times, badly beaten, and drowned, was recovered from the river. An autopsy established that the cause of death was drowning. His arms were found in an upright position, as if he had tried to claw his way out from under the ice. It was found that he had indeed been poisoned, and that the poison alone should have been enough to kill him. There is a report that after his body was recovered, water was found in the lungs, supporting the idea that he was still alive before submersion into the partially frozen river."

Died of a severe heart attack. It's kind of a funny story:

"Although his guards thought that it was odd for him not to rise at his usual time, they were under strict orders not to disturb him and left him alone the entire day. At around 10 p.m. he was discovered by Peter Lozgachev, the Deputy Commandant of Kuntsevo, who entered his bedroom to check up on him and recalled a horrifying scene of Stalin lying on the floor of his room wearing pyjama bottoms and an undershirt with his clothes soaked in stale urine. A frightened Lozgachev asked Stalin what happened to him, but all he could get out of the Generalissimo was unintelligible responses that sounded like "Dzhh." Lozgachev frantically called a few party officials asking them to send good doctors. Lavrentiy Beria was informed and arrived a few hours afterwards, and the doctors only arrived in the early morning of 2 March in which they changed his bedclothes and tended to him. The bedridden Stalin died four days later, on 5 March 1953, at the age of 74, and was embalmed on 9 March."

Celebrities, one minute they're alive, next thing you know they're dropping dead like flies. I've listed my favorite corpse of each year. Some years at the beginning are missing, but that's because nobody famous or important enough perished. Enjoy and remember, death comes to us all...

Oops. *slaps forhead* I'm so stupid!! Lol I was looking at this site that list thousands of dead people, and I somehow thought Abe was killed in 1902?? I gotta lay off the sauce.

I can imagine that collecting the info on so many dead folks can begin to run together after a while. I love the account of the death of the mad monk Rasputin.

Yeah, when it comes to dates I'm really dumb. I'm always forgetting people's birthdays and holidays. And Rasputin is kick ass, that dude just would not die!

You did a good job. This is a very nice list.

The ironic thing about Keith Moon's overdose, is that the pill he OD'd on was prescribed to prevent him from drinking alcohol.

It is also ironic that Wyatt Earp lived to die of old age considering the life he led as a frontier lawman. I don't think he was even wounded. At the OK corral, a bullet went through his coat tail but never hit him.

I also agree that Warren Oates was an awesome actor, who was highly under-ratted and never got the recognition he deserved.

Interesting list, but no way did Marilyn commit suicide.
And Natalies ''accidental'' drowning is pretty phony if you ask me.

Correction: The assassiniation of Archduke Ferdinand sparked WWI not WWII. Great info!
