* PearlJam's single "Jeremy" from ''Music/TenAlbum'' is about the suicide of Jeremy Wade Delle, a 15-year-old boy from Richardson, Texas. On January 8th 1991 Delle [[AteHisGun shot himself in the mouth with a revolver]] in front of his teacher and his classmates, and so Eddie Vedder was moved to write the song both as an anti-bullying anthem and as an anti-suicide anthem, and is now one of their most well-known songs.

** So is the ''Creator/DanielleSteel'' novel ''Vanished''. With a much happier ending, of course--the child is found safe and sound, the ''father'' is responsible for the whole thing, enabling him to be sent to prison and out of the heroine's life, paving the way for her to be reunited with her true love. * Christie's ''Literature/TheMirrorCrackd'' borrows its pivotal backstory from the real life of [[spoiler: actress Creator/GeneTierney]], to the extent that if you happen to be familiar with it, the crime is not terribly difficult to solve before Literature/MissMarple solves it.
