The Conspiracy Wiki

Bob Marley (1945—1981)

The Death of Bob Marley conspiracy questions Bob Marley’s death on May 11, 1981 at the age 36. The conspiracy proposes motives for murder by Marley’s religious views, his music, and his activism in the Rastafari movement. Many Christians were somewhat offended when, in 1976, Marley claimed "God is black" in an interview with a journalist.


In early July 1977, Bob Marley injured his right toe during a game of football, or soccer. He was laid down and a doctor was called to tend to it. According to Wailers manager Don Taylor in his book Marley and Me, an unknown doctor arrived and gave an unknown injection into his toe and left. It was later that month when Marley was diagnosed with acral lentiginous melanoma, a malignant cancer, in the same toe.
