And the world was tragically robbed of their musical gifts...

When a talented musician dies, the world mourns not just the loss of a beloved artist, but the secondary crime of being robbed of any future music they might make. Musicians have been killed for reasons ranging from domestic violence, to deranged fans, to street beefs that turn deadly. In some cases, the killers have been caught and their names are forever linked to the artist they murdered. Other musician murders are still unsolved til this day. Regardless of the circumstances, all were incredibly shocking to millions of music fans around the world.
