2. Patrick McDermott
Patrick McDermott might be more known for his relationship with Olivia Newton-John and his alleged death than for anything he did himself. McDermott and the Grease actress had an on-and-off relationship for several years, but he made news in 2005 when he disappeared while on a fishing trip off the coast of Los Angeles.
McDermott wasn’t reported missing until six days after he disappeared from the boat, and the more than 20 other passengers all gave conflicting reports. Three years later, he was declared “most likely drowned”, but conspiracy theories didn’t cease to flourish. According to one of them, McDermott faked his own death to cash out a life insurance policy and was living in Mexico.
