    In 1961, Secretary General of the UN, Dag Hammarskjöld, died in a plane crash. Hammarskjöld was both popular and controversial, taking a stance in the fight against colonialism in times of instability and the Cold War. What started as perhaps unlikely conspiracy theories involving conglomerates fighting for minerals and metal resources has evolved into a growing consensus that Hammarskjöld and 15 other people were shot down, inciting the UN to reopen the case on the suspicion of assassination.
