27. "Silkwood died in a car accident" is a bit of an understatement for those familiar with her story.
About her death:

On 13 November, 1974, Karen Silkwood had an appointment with a union staff representative and a New York Times investigative reporter. At this meeting, she was to provide documentation to the reporter, showing that her charges that Kerr-McGee had been negligent in quality control and had falsified records were justified.

Karen was on her way to this meeting when she died in what seems to have been a one-car crash. The documents she was to have turned over to the reporter were never found.

Karen Silkwood, who died at age 28, was buried in Danville Cemetery in Kilgore, Texas.
