19. Patrick Swayze

This photo shows Dirty Dancing star Patrick Swayze in his last known public appearance before he died from pancreatic cancer at 57 years old. He had left the hospital voluntarily three weeks before his death to be at home and took this walk to the store just a week later.

18. Freddie Mercury

This photo, taken in the spring of 1991, shows Queen frontman Freddie Mercury in the yard of his home in Kensington, London. He died in November 1991 from bronchial pneumonia due to AIDS.

“I felt it correct to keep this information private to date in order to protect the privacy of those around me,” he said in the statement he released just a day before his death.

17. Amelia Earheart

This photo is among the last images taken of aviator Amelia Earheart as she packed for what would become her final flight. The 40-year-old was attempting to circumnavigate the globe in 1937. Her plane ultimately disappeared over the Pacific Ocean, 22,000 miles into her trip, and her body was never found.

16. Elvis Presley

This is the last known photo of rock ‘n’ roll icon Elvis Presley as he returned from an evening out in Memphis in August 1977. He died in his Tennessee home later that night as a result of a heart attack brought on by a combination of 14 prescription drugs.

15. Ryan Dunn

This photo shows 34-year-old Jackass star Ryan Dunn partying in a bar just hours before he crashed his Porsche 911 while driving drunk. The accident set the car on fire and it wasn’t possible to determine in the autopsy whether the crash or the flames caused his death.
