Killed sounds like murder. And as far as i remember all assassinations where by guns.

I cant remember which one it was, but I know that one of them stood out on a very cold, possibly rainy day to deliver a speech. Then I think that they contracted pneumonia or something of the sort and died. I vaguely remember learning something about this but I don't know any specifics :D

That was Harrison, who's relatives were on TV on a show called 'Pawn Stars'.. But not who I was thinking of.... William Henry Harrison only held office 30 days ( shortest Presidenty so far)... You are correct, that cold day was his inaugural speech, and he did indeed die of pneumonia.

PRo FIT: it's actually 50/50... Half assassinated, half of natural causes. This one could have been either...but officially..it was natural.

I'm thinking of Zachary Taylor, 12th President, who "supposedly" died of milk and cherries.

Zack didn't have shpylis. CAMP Zachary Taylor did. His cause of death is still disputed, but he became ill after eating cherries and drinking iced milk.

There is some evidence his vice President poisioned him with arsenic.
