Famous Assassins And What Happened to Them

Mark David Chapman

3. Mark David Chapman

Mark Chapman was an unemployed security guard from Hawaii, who was charged with shooting John Lennon. He fired at John Lennon and his wife four times while in close range.

Chapman claims that he shot John Lennon because his lifestyle wasn’t “Christian” enough. He pleaded guilty to murder and was sentenced to only 20 years in prison.

Chapman was then released in 2020 and spoke with reporters saying that he shot Lennon because he was, in fact, jealous of his life.
