They say death comes for us all in the end, and even though no one really expects their death to come before their time, there are some who go out in style. Although they didn’t really planned it beforehand, some people managed to die in such a strange way that they unwillingly wrote history to some extent. We will now take a closer look at the ten most bizarre deaths in history and how their demise came to be.
10The Honest Lawyer
Flashback to 1871 in a bar in Ohio – there happened to be a bar fight, a man got shot and he died. Clement Vallandigham was the defendant’s attorney and he thought he had a pretty solid case. He argued that his client was innocent because the victim actually shot himself as he was drawing his gun. He was so certain that since the victim was in a kneeling position, he accidentally shot himself as he pulled his gun from his pocket. How was Mr. Clement going to prove this? He offered to demonstrate this to the jury himself. He grabbed a gun, which unfortunately was loaded, and accidentally shot himself dead. He did prove his point – beyond reasonable doubt and his client was acquitted.
