Bizarre Hollywood Murder Cases

Best known for his award-nominated role opposite James Dean in Rebel Without a Cause, Sal Mineo’s sexuality and death has often overshadowed his Hollywood career. Mineo, who would have been 77 today, was murdered outside his apartment by a teenage pizza delivery boy during a botched robbery. The case made the tabloids since Mineo was an openly bisexual actor and people linked the murder with a spurned gay lover. The press often speculated who Mineo’s lovers were, too, as the actor was close friends with stars like Dean, David Cassidy, Don Johnson, and Bobby Sherman. But this is just one of many bizarre murders that happened in Hollywood.
