Death sells. Just think about the last time you slowed down as you passed a car crash.
Admit it: You were hoping to see a mangled mass of bone and blood and flesh.
When a celeb bites the dust, the morbid curiosity really begins.
Aren’t we still talking about poor dead Michael Jackson?
From JFK to Marilyn Monroe, from Kurt Cobain to Janis Joplin, from John Dillinger to John Wayne Gacy, from Michael Jackson to Arnold Ziffel, the deaths of the rich and (in)famous spark endless speculation and tabloid fodder.
Such grave matters have been gathered by award-winning journalist and dead celeb expert Alan W. Petrucelli who, in Morbid Curiosity: The Disturbing Demises of the Rich and Infamous, unearths the most disturbing, unexpected, occasionally humorous and often outright appalling details of the final moments of the rich and powerful.
Everything you’ve been dying to know is buried within the book’s pages . . . final moments, last words, suicide notes, last meals of killers and con men and women before they went to meet their maker.
It’s not pretty. Especially when it comes to Albert Fish’s homemade human organ stew and Ed Gein’s homemade human skull soup bowls.
You’ve been warned.
