20 Celebrities Who Have Killed Another Person


When talking about the darker side of celebrity life, there is probably no topic more horrifying than the loss of life. Events such as this just go to prove that celebrities have all of the same problems that regular people have and can make the same types of mistakes.

Here are 20 celebrities that were responsible for taking the life of another human being.

1. William S. Burroughs

Burroughs was, without a doubt, one of the most influential writers of the 20th century.

He actually shot and killed his wife in 1951 while the couple were in Mexico City. But he did not really do a lot of time for it. First, he told police that he was trying to shoot a wine glass off of her head and missed. He then changed his story and said that his gun had simply misfired and killed her.

There was a lot of legal maneuvering involved and the trial lasted a long time. Many believe that Burroughs’ brother was responsible for bribing many court and police officials in order to make sure that his brother stayed out of jail.

He was finally found guilty and was sentenced to a term of two years in prison. However, he only ended up serving a total of two weeks of his prison term. Burroughs said that the incident was one that convinced him to take up writing full time.
