Judy Garland Death 1969 In March of 1969, Judy married her fifth husband, Mickey Devinko, better known as Mickey Deans. They lived together in England in a tiny mews house in Chelsea. During the evening of Saturday, June 21 1969, Judy and Mickey were watching television when they had an argument. Judy ran out the door into the street, screaming and waking the neighbors. A phone call for Judy woke Mickey at 10:40 the next morning; Judy was not sleeping in the bed. Mickey searched for her, only to find the bathroom door locked. After no response, he climbed outside to the bathroom window and entered to find Judy, sitting on the toilet. Rigor mortis had already set in. Judy Garland was dead at the age of 47. The official cause of death, according to the death certificate shown here, was accidental barbituate poisoning (quinalbarbitone). The day Judy died, legend has it, there was a tornado in Kansas.

Eerily similar to how Elvis was found dead eight years later.

Eerie period. Is it me or did these people have no respect for their lives or how their actions would affect others. Or, were they counting on it. Some of this sounds destructive in nature and/or a desperate cry for help due to inadequacies. ??????

I was shocked to see how she was presenting herself on television.

There was something going on with her for years. Pressure especially from film executives to keep herself in shape.

It was documented in many biographies.

As a teenager in the 60s I remember watching her on television. Her arm movements and odd hand actions were distracting while she was singing a song. Then I didn't realize what her affliction was but it was noticeable and did affect her performance. Sad!

Quite a while ago I posted Judy Garland's 1967 mystery guest appearance on What's My Line. She was only 45 years old but looked considerably older. She arrived at the CBS studio very belligerent and strung out. The WML producers thought she was in no condition to appear on the show, but she remarkably pulled herself together just before she was scheduled to go on. She probably did that for years before her addictions finally caught up with her that night in 1969.
