We know about thier lives, but what about their deaths?

This is so off topic, and pretty freaking morbid, but I kind of was sucked into reading a bunch of this today. A website by a self-proclaimed "death hag" who chronicles the deaths of celebrities, some of which had fallen on hard times at the end.

"Find A Death"

My personal favorite

Veronica Lake

Wow. The "it" girl from the 40's. A true classic beauty unlike the hags that emulate her today. During WW2 the government asked that she change her hair as so many women followed her style that they were afraid that their hair would become entangled in the war machinery. She died alone in Vermont in 1973 after having worked as a waitress in the years following her movie career.
