We all know whenever any incident occurs, especially a tragic one, there is immense media frenzy surrounding the event. Photographs are a crucial part of the process. Those clips and clicks that we usually see in the news or are widely circulated on the web don’t necessarily reflect the true picture. We never get an insight into what transpired in that event or the background that led to it occurring. Generally, the moments that led to that tragedy or mishap captured by the lens prevent us from understanding the all-important details we must know to get the complete picture. They show us what could cause tragedies to occur.

Such as if we get to know that a celebrity died in a car accident, that’s not something out of the ordinary. But, when we get the background information that the incident occurred because the individual was driving under the influence, we will always remain careful when driving. Such information can offer lifelong lessons to many of us, which makes getting the background information so essential to all. Our innate curiosity is another reason why we want to know more about a famous event. We are always curious to know more about what caused someone to die or get injured with tragedies. That’s the idea behind capturing the photos of an incident. These make the event more impactful. So are you ready to check out some of the celebrity photos taken right before a tragedy occurred?

These photos were taken just minutes before the fatal accident on August 5th that severely burned Anne Heche’s body and eventually put her in a coma. She was driving at the speed of 90 miles per hour down a 35-mph residential street in a Los Angeles neighborhood and crashed into a home. The photo on the upper left was taken at a Venice Beach wig shop after she had purchased a red wig just 20 minutes before she got into her blue 4-door Mini Cooper. The photo on the right was taken by a residential security camera just seconds before Anne crashed into a home in Mar Vista, engulfing her car and setting the house inflames. The resident and her dogs were just 2 feet away and escaped unharmed. The center-left photo was taken of her car and the structure after 56 fire fighters put out the flames. The bottom-left photo was taken when Anne Heche sat up and removed the white cloth the EMT wrapped her in while on the stretcher.

Just one week later, on August 12, 2022, Anne Heche was declared brain dead but was kept alive in hopes of finding an organ recipient as it was her wish to be an organ donor. On August 14th, she was taken off live support as a viable organ recipient was found. Anne Heche was 53 years old. It was reported that she had cocaine in her system at the time of her death. She leaves behind 2 children, 13-year-old Atlas and 20-year-old Homer.

The former The Beatles member can be seen signing autographs and is surrounded by has fans right outside his apartment in New York’s plushest locality, Manhattan. This particular building called The Dakota was one of the most exclusive residential units in the area back in the 80s. On December 8,1980, John Lennon is seen signing the album for Chapman. After signing, John asked Chapman, “Is this all you want?” He nodded with a smile. Little did John know at that time that this wasn’t what Chapman wanted from him. 

Then John left his residence to have dinner. When he returned home with his wife Yoko, Ono, Lennon got shot twice in the back and again twice on the shoulder.
