Celebrities are not only famous for what they do at work but there is an off screen dark side to them which makes them gain some unwanted fame too. One of the things that aids in making their dark side strong and even interesting for the viewers is their ability to kill. Yes, you read that right. Our favorite celebrities have killed in the past and not just on but off screen too so here goes a list of 10 celebs who have killed people in real life.
10) Charles S. Dutton
If you were a fan of the movie Alien 3 which is no wonder a Science fiction classic of sorts then you will definitely be surprise to know that the actor Charles S. Dutton has killed in real life. Before his acting career had begun, Dutton was involved in violent acts of manslaughter and he even led a prison break. Later on, after serving some time in prison he was set free and he went on to pursue acting.
9) Lane Garrison
Talking about Prison Break but this time on screen, we have Lane Garrison from the famous show Prison break who has also killed in real life. He was 26 years of age when this incident happened as he was drunk and even high on cocaine. The offence was not only of drunk driving but he killed a teenage boy on his way which is what makes him land on our list of celebs who have actually killed somebody in real life. We are sure you will watch prison break from a different angle now!
8) Laura Bush
It seems like killing people on the road while driving a vehicle is quite common with these celebrities. The wife of President Bush, Laura Bush while she was studying at her high school and was nowhere near being famous, killed a classmate. It was definitely traumatizing for her on many levels s not only was the guilt of killing someone there but the deceased was her close friend too. Laura Bush did not stop at a stop sign which led to the fatal crash of the friend of hers.
7) Ted Kennedy
We have someone else from a political background who was involved in a murder case too. Ted Kennedy killed the passenger with him while he was driving and drove his vehicle straight into the river. Kennedy ended up swimming out of the water and fleeing the scene but nine hours later reported to the police and confessed to the whole thing. The incident did create much hype and Senator Ted Kennedy was the brother of the very famous, loved and assassinated President of the United States, Mr. John F. Kennedy.
6) Snoop Dogg
Our very famous rapper Calvin Cordozar Broadus aka Snoop Dogg (we bet you did not know his real name!) was also involved in killing in his life off the stage. Despite his super cool attitude in life and exceptional rapping skills, Snoop Dogg has done some fishy things which includes murder. His story of murder is not something like a car crash or hit and run but he along with his bodyguard were accused of murdering a person who belonged to Snoop Dogg’s rival gang. After 4 years of court hearings and summons, Snoop Dogg was finally set free by the criminal court without the charges but the rival gang members do not agree with this and call it a murder.
5) Matthew Broderick
Matthew Broderick of the Lion King, Godzilla and Ferris Bueller’s Day Off fame has also been involved in the murder of not just one but two people. It turns out that vacationing can sometimes turn into a complete unexpected disaster. While on a trip with his girlfriend to Ireland, he hit a car which carried a mother and daughter. Both women lost their lives and Matthew Broderick’s girlfriend claimed that her life changed that day.
