Oh Crap! 7 People Who Died On The Toilet


Elvis Presley


The King of Rock ‘n Roll, Elvis Presley, died while sitting on the throne at his Graceland mansion on August 16, 1977. Unable to sleep, he told fiancee Ginger Alden he was going to go to the bathroom to read; she found him the next morning on the floor with his gold pajamas around his ankles. The book he was reading was The Scientific Search For The Face Of Jesus.

While the coroner reported he died of cardiac arrhythmia, it was later revealed to be a cover story to protect his reputation. He died of a cocktail of ten prescription medications—including morphine and Demerol—coupled with a shot of codeine he received while getting a crown at the dentist. (Source 1 | Source 2)

On August 3, 1966, at the age of 41, Bruce was found in the bathroom naked, sitting on the can with a needle still stuck in his arm.

His career crashed and burned in the 90s, but Simpson’s excesses only grew.
