Here’s a list of celebrities who have died young and the cause of their death.

Sid Vicious, 21, heroin overdose in 1979. On the evening of 1 February 1979, a small gathering to celebrate Sid’s having made bail was held at the 63 Bank St. New York Apartment of his new girlfriend, Michele Robison.Vicious was clean, having been on a detoxification methadone program detoxed from heroin during his time at Rikers Island.However, at the dinner gathering, his mother (who was once a registered addict herself) had some heroin delivered, against the wishes of Sid’s girlfriend.Vicious overdosed at midnight that night but everyone who was there that night worked together to get him up and walking around in order to revive him.At 3am Sid and Michele Robison went to bed together. Vicious was discovered dead late the next morning.

Heath Ledger, 28, died from a drug overdose at his New York apartment in 2008. He was killed by a deadly combination of FDA-approved medications prescribed to him by his doctors. The drugs found in Ledger’s system were OxyContin (a painkiller), Valium, Xanax (an antidepressant), Restoril, Unisom and Vicodin. This toxicology report ends any speculation that Ledger might have been killed by taking recreational drugs. The cause of death is now clearly FDA-approved pharmaceuticals.

Kurt Cobain, 28, self-inflicted gun shot wound in 1994. Advocates of the verdict (death by self-inflicted gunshot wound) cite Cobain’s persistent drug addiction, clinical depression, and handwritten suicide note as conclusive proof. Members of Cobain’s family have also noted patterns of depression and instability in Kurt before he achieved fame. Cobain himself mentioned that his stomach pains from an undiagnosed stomach condition during Nirvana’s 1991 European tour were so severe, he became suicidal and stated that taking heroin was “[his] choice”, stating “This is the only thing that’s saving me from blowing my head off right now”.

Jimmy Hendrix, 28, drug and alcohol overdose in 1970. The cause of death noted on the coroner’s report was inhalation of vomit after barbiturate intoxication.

 

Janis Joplin, 27, heroin overdose in 1970. Inside room 105 of the  Landmark Hotel, Hollywood, she shot up her last fix of heroin. She returned to the hotel lobby to get change for a five dollar bill, for cigarettes.

When she returned to her room, she collapsed beside the bed, almost breaking her nose. She was wedged against a bedside table, with a cigarette in her hand.

  John Belushi, 33 – Died as a result of a SPEEDBALL – overdosing on cocaine and heroin – at the Chateau Marmont, Los Angeles, in 1982. On the night of his death, he was visited separately by friends Robin Williams and Robert De Niro, each of whom left the premises, leaving Belushi in the company of assorted others.
