Common sense forces us to see murderers as evil beings and despised by society. But things change when instead of being behind bars, the murderers are on the covers of magazines, go to red carpets or win sports tournaments. Admired by thousands, some celebrities carry responsibility in their past for having taken someone's life.
In some cases, it was about personal revenge, while others were careless. Whether by accident or will, nothing can change the terrible past of these stars. And the most surprising thing is that certain celebrities were able to continue their careers after having murdered a person as if nothing had happened and were forgiven by the public
