Rudolf Hess was one of Adolf Hitler’s closest followers. Hitler had dictated much of his manifesto Mein Kampf (published in 1925-6) to Hess while they were imprisoned after the failed Nazi coup of Bavaria in 1923.
Hess eventually became the Deputy Leader of the Nazi party, but was arrested in Scotland in 1941 after he flew into the country for what may or may not have been an unauthorized peace mission.
He was returned to Germany after the war, where he went on trial for war crimes, and was found guilty and given a life sentence in Spandau Prison in western Berlin.
For the last 20 years at Spandau Prison, Hess was the only prisoner, and was allowed to move throughout the 600-cell facility. He spent his time watching television,reading and gardening.
Hess attempted suicide at least twice during his time at Spandau, and on 17 August 1987, the 93-year-old successfully hanged himself with an electrical cord in his reading room. Hess was the last of a large number of Nazis who chose to end their own lives.
His family argued that he had been murdered, and that the suicide note that had been found in his robe had been written in 1969 and did not reflect his current state of mind. An investigation into the incident did not resolve the issue one way or the other. His death is still officially considered a suicide.

The Temptations in 1965 (l-r: Melvin Franklin, Eddie Kendricks, Otis Williams, Paul Williams, David Ruffin)
Despite his fame as a founding member of the Temptations, Paul Williams was in dire financial straits, due in part to his own failed business investments, and to mismanagement of The Temptations’ earnings.
According to some reports, Paul Williams was in debt as much as $80,000. He also suffered from sickle cell anemia, which caused him considerable pain and exhaustion, and made him unable to perform with the group on many occasions. Williams began to drink heavily, and the other members of the Temptations tried to keep him sober, and tried to get him to seek medical help, which he refused.
In 1971, Williams finally saw a doctor, who told him to stop performing immediately. He was kept on the band’s payroll and acted as their choreographer until 1973.
On 17 August 1973, after an argument with his girlfriend, the 34-year-old Williams was found dead in an alley with a gun by his side. His death was considered a suicide (he had expressed his intentions to kill himself before), but his family thought he might have been murdered due to unexplained factors (e.g. the gun was in his right hand, but he had been shot in the left side of his head; the gun had been fired twice). His death is still officially considered a suicide.
