Top 10 Famous People Who Committed Suicide

#2. Alan Turing

On 8 June 1954, Turing's housekeeper found him dead; he had died the previous day. Cyanide poisoning was established as the cause of death. When his body was discovered, an apple lay half-eaten beside his bed, and although the apple was not tested for cyanide, it was speculated that this was the means by which Turing had consumed a fatal dose. An inquest determined that he had committed suicide. Andrew Hodges and another biographer, David Leavitt, have both speculated that Turing was re-enacting a scene from the Walt Disney film Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937), his favourite fairy tale. Both men noted that (in Leavitt's words) he took "an especially keen pleasure in the scene where the Wicked Queen immerses her apple in the poisonous brew."[138] Turing's remains were cremated at Woking Crematorium on 12 June 1954[139] and his ashes were scattered in the gardens of the crematorium, just as his father's had been.[
