エイミー・ワインハウスAmy Winehouse1983年9月14日~2011年7月23日 イギリス)。
2003年に発売した1stアルバム『フランク』が英国を中心に100万枚を超える大ヒット作となる。2ndアルバム『バック・トゥ・ブラック 』も高い評価を受け、2007年に全英で最も売れたアルバムとなった。
ソウルフルでハスキー、かつ豊かな表現力を持つ独特の声は現代のビリー・ホリデイやサラ・ヴォーンにも例えられ、21世紀後のイギリスを代表するヴォーカリストの1人に挙げられるだろう。輝かしい音楽キャリアの裏では薬物中毒やアルコール依存症などでゴシップ誌を連日賑わせていたが、ある日自宅で遺体となって発見された。そしてその死因は現在も謎のままである。

Musicians Who've Died Under Mysterious Circumstances

The Rolling Stones guitarist was discovered unconscious in his pool in 1969
and died before doctors arrived at his home, Cotchford Farm. Though Jones' death was ruled "death by misadventure," others -- including people who were there that night -- claim that Frank Thorogood was responsible, either maliciously or by accident. Thorogood, who died in 1994, worked as a contractor on Jones' home and was allegedly fired by the former Stone the day of the incident. After reviewing new evidence, including allegations that police altered witness statements, the police declined to reopen the case in 2010.

In 1971, the Doors singer was found dead in the bathtub of his Paris apartment and was buried without an autopsy. His longtime girlfriend, Pamela Courson, said that he died of a heroin overdose while in the tub, though she gave several contradictory statements. In 2007, a "friend" of Morrison's said the singer actually overdosed in the bathroom of a nearby club and was carried back to the apartment by drug dealers to avoid police attention. And, of course, there are those who believe that Morrison is still alive.

Kurt Cobain's death was ruled a suicide by self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head, but that hasn't stopped plenty of people from claiming it was a murder. The proponents of this theory -- who often place blame on the grunge icon's wife, Courtney Love -- claim that Cobain's suicide note was finished by someone else, that he had too much heroin in his system to commit the act, that Cobain was going to cut Love out of his will, and so on. The theory seems to have died in popularity in recent years but still persists, with Cobain's grandfather even admitting he believes Kurt was murdered.

Struggling with his finances, depression and addiction, Marvin Gaye moved in with his parents in 1983 in an attempt to get healthy. He and his father, Marvin Gay Sr. (Marvin Jr. added the "e" to his last name), argued constantly, and on the day in question, things got physical after Marvin Sr. had a heated fight with his wife. After the confrontation between father and son, Marvin Sr. grabbed a gun and shot his son in the chest, then fired again, killing the Motown legend. Thanks to the bruises found on Marvin Sr. and the drugs found in his son's system, the 70-year-old avoided a first-degree murder charge and pleaded no contest to voluntary manslaughter, though family members claimed it was a cold-blooded killing. When Marvin Sr. was asked if he loved his son, he reportedly said, "Let's say that I didn't dislike him."

INXS singer Michael Hutchence's body was discovered in a Sydney hotel by a maid in November 1997. The initial ruling was suicide, as he was found naked, hanging from a doorway in the room, which was reportedly filled with alcohol and prescription drugs. The 37-year-old had been involved in a custody battle over his daughter, Tiger Lily, with girlfriend Paula Yates, which led the coroner to determine that Hutchence was distraught at the time of his death. Yates, for her part, later claimed that Hutchence died while practicing autoerotic asphyxiation, the self-deprivation of oxygen to increase sexual pleasure. Yates died in 2000 of a heroin overdose.

What is known about the soul legend's death is that he died after being shot by Bertha Franklin, the manager of Los Angeles' Hacienda Motel. Cooke allegedly burst into Franklin's office wearing only a sport jacket and underwear then attacked her. The events leading up to the shooting are even murkier: Cooke was at the motel with Elisa Boyer, who claimed that the singer tried to rape her. She fled, taking some of Cooke's clothes with her, leading to Cooke to chase her and run into Franklin's office. Boyer was later arrested for prostitution, and Cooke's thousands in cash were never recovered, lending credence to the theory that he was the victim of robbery. Either way, Franklin was exonerated in the shooting and Boyer was never charged.

British rocker Richey Edwards disappeared on Feb. 1, 1995, the day he was due to fly to the U.S. for a press tour. The Manic Street Preachers guitarist's car was found abandoned a couple weeks later, and there were plenty of purported sightings during that period. To this day, Edwards has never been found, and many speculate he committed suicide after years of battling depression. Even though fans still claim to have seen him, Edwards was declared "presumed dead" in 2008.

Three hip-hop legends, three unsolved murders. All three are interconnected, with Tupac Shakur and Notorious B.I.G.'s deaths coming as the result of the much-hyped coastal hip-hop rivalry.
Many conspiracy theories abound, with Marion "Suge" Knight and LAPD officers being named, with somewhat convincing evidence.

In the case of Run-DMC's Jam Master Jay, prosecutors named Ronald "Tenad" Washington as an accomplice of the shooter. Washington was previously associated with the 1995 murder of Randy "Stretch" Walker, a collaborator of Shakur's.
