A kiss is always seen as an act of affection. Maybe that’s why these people never saw their death coming. Here are nine cases of a kiss which proved to be fatal.
1. Drinking Driving And A Kiss. One Fatal Combination.
Benjamin Hughes and his girlfriend Dominique Wright were out drinking. They decided to travel in Benjamin’s car to get home. They were both heavily drunk while driving when Wright leaned in to kiss her boyfriend. Distracted by her Benjamin lost control of the car and crashed into a tree. Dominique was killed on the spot and Hughe was sent to prison for 2 years.
2. One Fatal Act Of Love.
Nicole Kilpatrick and Shane Sifrit’s daughter Mariana passed away shortly after her parents tied the knot. An autopsy determined that she had meningitis HSV. Her parents were tested but their results proved negative. It was determined that Mariana had contracted the disease due to a kiss from someone else in the family or friend circle. It’s cruel how an act of love can prove fatal to such a fragile baby.
3. Lethal Allergies.
Myriam Ducre-Lemay was a 20-year-old woman from Montreal. She and her new boyfriend had just returned from a party and were calling it a night. They shared a goodnight kiss and went to bed. Soon after that, Myriam started having trouble breathing. An ambulance was called but she died due to oxygen deprivation. The cause of her death was that goodnight kiss. Turns out she was severely allergic to peanuts and her boyfriend had eaten a peanut butter sandwich earlier that night.
4. Sudden Adult Death Syndrome.

5. She Contracted E.coli Through A Kiss.
Abby Fenstermaker was a seven year old girl who contracted e.coli from her grandfather when she kissed him while visiting. Her grandfather who himself was suffering from e.coli was in rehabilitation at the time. Talk about fatal affections!
6. That One Fatal Kiss.
Melissa Blair and Anthony Lowell’s relationship had a very weird backstory but the most interesting thing about it was Anthony Powell’s demise. Anthony was in prison when the two struck a note and began a romantic relationship. On June 2nd, 2016, Blair gave her incarcerated boyfriend a long kiss before visiting hours ended. Hours later, Anthony was dead. Turns out Blair had passed him several baggies of methamphetamine during the kiss. Some of which exploded inside poor Anthony.
7. Hickeys Can Be Fatal To You Too.
Julio Macias Gonzalez was a 17 year old teen from Mexico City. One fine day while he was dining with his family, he collapsed and started convulsing. Parademics were called but Julio didn’t make it. The cause of his death was a hickey which his girlfriend had given him earlier. Hickeys are usually harmless but in poor Julio’s case, it formed a clot which traveled all the way to his brain leading to a stroke.
8. Somnath Mhatre.
Somnath was a 21 year old young snake rescuer living in Navi Mumbai. He was an avid snake rescuer who frequently posted selfies with reptiles before releasing them into the wild.

The cobra bit him and he passed away soon due to its highly potent venom.
9. A Case Of Intended Kiss Of Death.
