Great scientists that died disturbingly

Today we would see top 5 Great scientists and genius minds who all died disturbingly either killed in a war or were Murdered! Which resulted in the loss of genius minds if they would have lived longer who can say our world would have been different now.
Hippasus, Murdered
Hippasus of Metapontum was a Pythagorean philosopher. Very Little is known about his life or his beliefs, but he is sometimes credited with the discovery of the existence of irrational numbers. The discovery of irrational numbers is said to have been shocking to the Pythagoreans, and Hippasus was forced to have drowned at sea, possibly as a punishment from the gods for revealing this. However, the few ancient sources which describe this story either do not mention Hippasus by name (e.g. Pappus) or alternatively tell that Hippasus drowned because he revealed how to construct a dodecahedron inside a sphere. The discovery of irrationality is not specifically ascribed to Hippasus by any ancient writer. Some modern scholars though have suggested that he discovered the irrationality of √2, which is believed to have been discovered around the time that he lived.

Henry Moseley, - was killed in a battle at the age of 27.
In 1913, Henry Moseley found that every chemical element’s identity is determined by its number of protons and so, he discovered the true basis of the periodic table. While World War 1 began in 1914, he enlisted himself as a volunteer in the British Army. His family pleaded with him to continue his scientific research, but he sensed his duty in becoming a soldier. Second Lieutenant Henry Moseley was killed in battle at the age of 27, in Gallipoli, Turkey on August 10, 1915. In 1916 no Nobel Prizes were given in physics or chemistry. Had he been alive, Moseley would almost certainly have received one of these awards.

Hypatia was murdered at the age of 45, by a mob
Hypatia lived and died in the Greco-Roman city of Alexandria, Egypt. Hypatia of Alexandria, daughter of the philosopher Theon, made such accomplishments in literature and science as too far surpass all the philosophers of her own time. Having succeeded to the school of Plato and Plotinus, she explained the principles of philosophy to her students, many of whom traveled far to receive her education. Hypatia was killed by a Christian mob, driven into a craze by claims that she was interfering in a religious dispute between the Governor and the Bishop of Alexandria.
