Top 10 People Who Died in the Worst Ways

All of us will eventually have to face our mortality. However, some people have died more violently than others, and these are the people who suffered the most before they took their final breaths. To make it even sadder, most of these were inflicted upon intentionally by other people.
The Top Ten
1 Kelly-Anne Bates

I don't even feel comfortable sharing the details. This case haunts me. I'm just going to say that a 16 year old Kelly dating someone in his mid-40s is easy to forget because of how brutal her 4 week torture-murder was.

2 Hisashi Ouchi

A Japanese nuclear power plant worker who was exposed to 17 times the lethal amount of radiation while on the job. They experimented on his decaying body for 83 days before finally deciding to end the poor guy's suffering. There are pictures of him as he was dying on the internet and they are GRUESOME.

3 Junko Furuta

She was a Japanese school girl who was kidnapped and tortured for 44 days by 4 wannabe gangster bullies who claimed to have ties to the Yakuza. It was estimated that she had been R'd between 400 and 500 times. The laundry list of her injuries is too extensive to write here, and be warned: If you choose to look it up, you will be traumatized.

4 Consort Qi

Qi had a son with Gaozu who was the emperor of the Han Dynasty at the time. Liu Zhi, the empress, wanted her son to be the heir, but Gaozu preferred Lady Qi's son. Liu was outraged by this, so she had Qi's son poisoned, and Qi herself tortured by having her tongue cut out, her lips and limbs cut off, and her eyes gouged out, before being humiliated in a pigsty full of manure and presented as 'the human swine.'

5 Inalchuq, Governor of Otrar

The Khwarazmian Empire was so big and powerful that it even earned Genghis Khan's respect... briefly. After a failed attempt by Khan at forming diplomatic ties, Shah Muhammad II's uncle Inalchuq accused the Mongols of being spies. Khan gave Muhammad II a second chance and told him to punish his uncle and return the diplomats, merchants, and prisoners he had sent to Khwarazmia in an attempted peace treaty. In what was perhaps the most costly lapse in judgement of all time, the Shah had the Mongol diplomats' beards shaved, and the Muslim interpreter & prisoners executed, resulting in possibly the most brutal act of revenge of all time - a war so one-sided that the Khwarazmian Empire ceased to exist within just 2 years, Shah Muhammad being forced to flee and dying two weeks after arriving on an island in the Caspian Sea, and the Mongols executing Inalchuq by pouring molten silver all over his face and into his ears.

6 Sylvia Likens

Force fed bodily excretions, starved, beaten, and burned in a variety of ways for weeks on end instigated by a depressed impoverished lady tasked to take care of her, who also did a lot of the dirty work herself.

7 Fan Man-Yee

The victim of the infamous Hello Kitty murder. Very similar case to Sylvia Likens. Burned, beaten, starved, force fed bodily secretions... after Fan finally succumbed to her many injuries and passed away after a long, agonizing, horrific month, her tormentors decided to boil her head until it was nothing but a skull and stuff it inside a Hello Kitty

8 Dr. David Douglas

The Douglas fir tree's namesake was a Scottish botanist who mysteriously disappeared but it's highly suspected he died a less than pleasant death in Mauna Kea, Hawaii. Imagine falling into a huge pit of spikes then having a bull fall on you. Ouch...

9 Jose Melena

Slow cooked for 2 hours in an industrial oven while being crushed by aluminum cans that were also being heated up in the oven.

10 Jesus Jesus Christ was born in Bethlehem, Palestine. He was born to Mary, as the bible says "she was found with child of the Holy Ghost" (Matthew 1:18). He was both man and God (John 20:28). According to the bible He is God alone (Deuteronomy 6:4).

According To The Christian Bible, Jesus' purpose on Earth was redemption and salvation. While He was on Earth he healed the sick, brought the dead back to life, forgave sins, died on the cross for the world, and gave us a pathway to salvation. more.

Honorable mention goes to Jesus Christ because despite how brutal the lashes, nails, and glass shards to His body followed by the crucifixion were, in the end He conquered Hell & saved us from our own sin and is back in Heaven with the Father & the Holy Spirit.

11 Suzanne Capper

This naive and impressionable teenage girl from a run-down part of northern England hung out with the wrong crowd and they bullied her for petty reasons. Eventually one of her captors caught a case of crabs and they put the blame on her, so they kidnapped and tortured her for a week, before setting her on fire and leaving her to die at an embankment. She was tied spread eagle to an upside-down bed and drugged out on methamphetamines during some of her torment.

12 Shanda Sharer
13 Brunhilda of Austrasia
14 Layne Staley Layne Thomas Staley was an American musician who served as the lead singer and co-songwriter of the rock band Alice in Chains, which he founded with guitarist Jerry Cantrell in Seattle, Washington in 1987. Alice in Chains rose to international fame as part of the grunge movement of the early 1990s. In 2002, Staley was found dead in his home of a drug overdose.
15 Ishikawa Goemon
16 Angus Cloud

He struggled with his mental health & life so much that no matter how much help he got, he ended up overdosing on drugs at such a young age. He was known as Fezco in the HBO Max drama series Euphoria & passed away on the end of July. 25 is way too young & he had such a bright future ahead. He had every chance & wasted it. This was an absolutely devastating loss for entertainment & has the potential of getting the series cancelled. R.I.P. (1998-2023).

17 Randon Lee Nichols

The son of Ophelia Nichols was shot less than 1 day before his 19th birthday. A truly horrible loss for her & the family. A parent should never lose a child or somebody loved to gun violence (or any kind of violence). What's worse was that this happened just 3 days after summer started. Truly a horrible way to start summer. She posted a reaction video that was among the most viewed TikTok posts in 24 hours. R.I.P. (2003-2022).

18 Miya Marcano

She was a resident & student of Valencia College West Campus, Charles W. Flanagan High School & University of Central Florida. She was killed by a maintenance worker on September 2021. The sheriff could've saved her, but it was too late. R.I.P. (2002-2021).

19 Emmett Till Emmett Louis Till (July 25, 1941 – August 28, 1955) was a 14-year-old African American who was lynched in Mississippi in 1955, after being accused of offending a white woman in her family's grocery store. The brutality of his murder and the fact that his killers were acquitted drew attention to the long history of violent persecution of African Americans in the United States. Till posthumously became an icon of the civil rights movement.

21 David Allen Kirwan
22 Sean Doyle
23 Arthur Labinjo-Hughes
24 Bianca Devins

A teenager who was a rising Instagram model was murdered by male acquaintance, Brandon Andrew Clark, on July 14th 2019. He was given a 25 year life sentence in prison for 2nd degree murder. She would've turned 18 on October 2nd 2001. R.I.P. (2001-2019).
