Celebrities Who Were Murdered
Sensitive actor, Sal Mineo was stabbed in the heart after parking his car at his apartment building. His cries for help brought neighbors to THE REBEL WITHOUT A CAUSE star, one of whom attempted mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. Witnesses described a white man with brown hair fleeing from the scene. West Hollywood cops focused on the gay actor's personal life to no avail. Two years later, Michigan authorities alerted them to Lionel Williams, and bragged he killed the two time Oscar nominee. He was arrested for another murder, paroled in the 1990s and is back behind bars for another series of crimes.
