Celebrities Who Were Murdered
R&B legend Marvin Gaye died a day before his 45th birthday, victim of the Christmas present he gave his father. Marvin Gaye, Sr. shot his son twice after he intervened in an argument between his parents over a misplaced insurance policy. After a physical altercation, Marvin's paranoid and suicidal father fulfilled his threat to kill his son if he ever struck him, and shot the soulful singer straight in the heart with a follow-up shot point-blank.
