Celebrities take up so much space in the world that a cavernous gap is left behind when they die. The natural response from the public is an attempt to fill that gap with stories to make sense of it. Accidental overdoses, sudden heart attacks, and random plane crashes just don't seem like fitting ends to such impactful lives. Instead, some prefer to believe that there are mysterious forces at play behind the scenes. The cult of personality surrounding most celebrities and the exaggerated details of their private lives that are reported in the media give the average conspiracy theorist plenty to work with.
That being said, death conspiracies can also pop up about famous figures who are still alive! The bodyswap is a particularly popular theme and usually purports that the real celebrity has died and been replaced with a lookalike.
