William Desmond Taylor
William Desmond Taylor was a silent film director in the 1920s who was found murdered in his bungalow. A crowd of people gathered around his body, and a man who claimed he was a doctor inspected Taylor and confirmed that he died of a hemorrhage. He then disappeared back into the crowd, and was never heard from again.

While that might not be necessarily weird under normal circumstances, the autopsy showed that Taylor was actually shot in the back. In the end the case grew cold and no one was charged with the murder.
