John Lennon Photo Predicts His Death

I expect that for many readers this is probably pushing the coincidence thing a little too much, but thought I'd still publish it.

When a big name dies unexpectedly lots of predictions about the death come out of the woodwork. Think Elvis Presley, Princess Diana, Michael Jackson and, in this instance, John Lennon.

John Lennon death prediction photo
Mark David Chapman who killed John LennonLet's look at the photo above, supposedly a picture which predicts John's death.

That's John in the pic, standing by a sign which reads: 'The best way to go is by M D & Co.' But in the photo the o of Co is missing. This leaves MDC which just happens to be the initials of his killer - Mark David Chapman. (Photo Right: NYPD mugshot of Chapman in 1980, Public Domain)

And another coincidence MD&Co are, so I'm told, funeral directors!

So there you have it, a photo which predicted John Lennon's death and also gave his killers initials ... maybe, perhaps ...

    Spooky. .wonder how many coincidences happen to all of us and never even notice!

  4. Research John Lennon and the number 9. That's friggin' creepy.

  5. My brother was a great fan of the Beatles he had one of the first Phillips home video recorders. He recorded john Lennon singing on stage just before he was shot, the camera panned over the audience and in the front row was Chapman staring at Lennon on stage. After the shooting my brother played the tape and froze it showing Chapman. I knew a reporter at the Daily mirror newspaper when I told him about it he came within minutes with a photographer offered my brother a considerable sum of money for the exclusive then they photographed the still screen on TV and took tape to prevent him showing to anybody else. It was all over the papers next day proving he was stalking Lennon.
