Jimi Hendrix's last photo was taken on Sept. 17, 1970, by Monika Danneman in the garden behind her apartment. Hendrix died on Sept. 18, 1970, from a barbiturate-related asphyxia in London. A final photograph of Robert Kennedy was taken just moments after he was shot at the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles by Sirhan Sirhan on June 5, 1968.
