WTF Fun Fact – Vincent Van Gogh’s Death

After Vincent Van Gogh shot himself in the chest with a revolver, he was able to walk home and see two doctors, but neither was a surgeon and so they couldn’t remove the bullet. The doctors left him alone smoking his pipe in his room. He died 30 hours later. – WTF Fun Facts

  1. There is speculation that he didn’t shoot himself, and that it was a couple kids that shot him. He didn’t want them to get in trouble so he made it seem like he did it himself, if I remember correctly the gun was never found and the type of gun that could have been used was suspected to be owned by a child whose father either owned the gun or made that type of gun I don’t remember that detail.
