Death Scenes on Google Maps
The rather ghoulish Famous Death Locations is mapping out the places where famous people have died. If you would like to see the pillar in the Alma Bridge underpass in Paris into which Princess Diana crashed, or have a look at the intersection in Los Angeles where the Notorious B.I.G. was gunned down, then Famous Death Locations is probably right up your street.
If you don't have a morbid fascination with where famous people have died you might instead enjoy Famous Death Locations' wonderfully 1990's style retro web design. The yellow 'view location' buttons may not be blinking GIFs but if you click on them you are taken to a Street View of the death scene of your chosen celebrity.
