Reeves is best known for playing Superman in the 1950s, but on June 16, 1959, he died when he was shot in the head by an unknown assailant. Reeves was found laying naked in bed, with his feet on the floor and the gun between his feet. Several people were present in the house when it happened — including his fiancée Leonore Lemmon — but they waited to call the police after hearing the gun go off. They claimed they were drinking which was why they had a delayed reflex, but the case seemed too murky to be deemed a suicide.
