This should be enough information to be able to make guesses with a little bit of research after he answers the question.

7. Not an important historical figure
8. Has been alive in the last 22 years (2000 or later)
9. American
10. Was not actually convicted of murder

Tough to give a straight yes or no answer, but I would say yes, they are mainly known from their involvement in the entertainment industry, but not for.

12. They are mainly known for their involvement in the entertainment industry.
The answer and the summary bullet for #12 are in disagreement.

Just wording it in exact accordance with the way the question was worded, but I'll change it.

I suppose you can answer the guess, but I didn't realize his car accident happened outside the US so I'm assuming the answer is no. Also thinking deeper, it's likely not someone known for being an actor/producer/director since OP had to look it up.

Possibly Tony Stewart? I feel like he's been in a movie

We still have some questions, let's try to get a couple more of these in. Did quick research and chance it's a sports player? But Tiger King/Manson answers seem a lot better. (Also thought about people who have never been caught but Zodiac killer etc are unknown if they've been alive within past 20 years)

Would >50% of people know who they were 10 years ago?

I'll ask one more question as its either an obvious question, or so obviously dumb that people will pillory me for it.

Is the person they killed themself? Suicide is illegal in some places.

No.

You guys are on the wrong track, focusing too much on the person being real, if that makes sense.

1. Not a Diplomacy player
2. Not a woman
3. Is a person that is living/has lived
4. Has killed someone/is commonly understood to have killed someone (illegally)
5. Is white
6. Does not wear job gloves. While not impossible, you would not associate them with gloves before thinking of many, many other things first
7. Not an important historical figure

9. American

12. They are mainly known from their involvement in the entertainment industry.
13. They have not had multiple movies made about them.

Could you explain that comment a bit more, in light of Q&A #3? (Is a person that is living/has lived)

He was a real person but the fictionalized version of him is what is famous, as another giant hint.

1. Not a Diplomacy player
2. Not a woman
3. Is a person that is living/has lived
4. Has killed someone/is commonly understood to have killed someone (illegally)
5. Is white
6. Does not wear job gloves. While not impossible, you would not associate them with gloves before thinking of many, many other things first

12. They are mainly known from their involvement in the entertainment industry.
13. They have not had multiple movies made about them.

So this is a real white man involved in the movie industry...

but

It's the *fictional* character based on them that is famous...

but

That famous fictional version of this person has *not* been the subject of movies...

And

They've killed someone, and gotten away with it, but that's not a big deal.

This is puzzling.
