Here's an interesting list of bizarre deaths. The one that got to me the most was that of a clinically depressed TV reporter who shot herself while reading the news.
No, they don't mean Budd Dwyer, this was actually a journalist, named Christine Chubbuck. Her Wikipedia entry is just tinged all over with sadness. I keep musing over the fact that she announced her impending death as "an attempted suicide." Apparently right to the end, she thought maybe she'd live.
