Most of these seem legit - which makes for a pleasant change. These sorts of lists are usually urban myths.
hmm, well, sani abacha did die in the company of prostitutes, but the official cause of death was a heart attack. then again, if he did overdose on viagra, I doubt they'd actually put that on his death certificate.
most of the deaths on this list weren't too terribly strange, and I wish the author would have provided more information on the more interesting cases. issei sagawa's case (for example) was interesting not because he was a cannibal but because he really wasn't punished at all and ended up becoming a huge celebrity. vic morrow's death wasn't all that strange, but it was unusual in that it ended up changing a lot of labor laws (and revealing that john landis is a complete asshole).
anyway, I guess I just wish the list had deaths that were a little more unusual (what's so "crazy" about a guy being killed for insurance money?)
Strange deaths. Worth reading.
