Famous Suicides ... An Incomplete List

Suicides. It doesn't matter how rich, how poor, how unknown or known you are. It happens across the board of life. And, people have a desire to understand the "Why's?" "How Could They?" and so on. And you will never ever know. So for those who are interested in the "WHO?" And/or those who have a morbid curiousity, I present the following list of notable people who have definitely died intentionally by their own hand, regardless of the circumstances. Suicides committed under duress are included. Deaths by accident or misadventure are excluded. Individuals who might or might not have died by their own hand, or whose whose intention to die is in dispute, but who are widely believed to have deliberately killed themselves, may be listed under Possible suicides.

UNFORTUNATELY, this is an incomplete list, which may never be able to satisfy certain standards for completeness. Revisions and sourced additions are welcome. (This list is from Wikipedia)
