He was a cultural icon with a wild lifestyle, but it all came with a price
Hunter S. Thompson was an author trapped in the body of a rock star. His most notorious pieces of works include Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas and Hell’s Angels. At 67, with a broken leg, two hip operations, and in chronic pain, Thompson could no longer live up to the legend he’d created. On February 20, 2005, he decided to end it all with one of his favorite possessions: A Smith and Wesson 45. What was going through his mind during his final 24 hours? We investigate on Final 24 on Wednesday, July 29th at 9/8c.
