There’s nothing quite like a good murder mystery — at least in movies and on TV. However, in reality, the pressures of Hollywood (and freak accidents) can cause stars to die too young. Most real-life murder mysteries aren’t resolved in 90 minutes. Some even end up unsolved. These are the eeriest celebrity deaths no one has been able to figure out.

The iconic rapper was shot during a drive-by in Las Vegas in 1996. Though Tupac Shakur was rushed to a hospital and treated for his wounds, the 25-year-old died soon after. His shooter was never found. And his rap rival, Notorious B.I.G., died in a similar manner six months later. Both notions led to conspiracy theories, including the idea that Tupac faked his own death.
