10 Strange Celebrity Deaths

#7. Isadora Duncan (dancer): Thought of by many to be the “mother” of modern dance, Ms. Duncan was known not only for her contributions to the arts but also for her charismatic and over the top lifestyle. No stranger to public drunkenness, scandalous bisexual love affairs, and financial disaster her death would prove to be just as interesting. A fan of long flowing scarves, Ms. Duncan set out for a drive on September 14, 1927, in Nice, France, wearing a long flowing Russian silk scarf. As a back seat passenger in the open car, her free flowing scarf managed to get caught in the rear spoke wheels of the car. The sudden tightening force of the incident threw her from the car into the pavement nearly decapitating her. Duncan was cremated and her ashes are interred at the Pére Lachaise Cemetery in Paris, France.
