Lives become different when you're a celebrity. You become "public property " so to speak. And, as public property, people tend to want to know about the lives and times, daily routines, affairs, scandals, shopping habits, and so on, right down to the last detail about those celebrities. The death scene of such a celebrity is simply one of those details.
People want death scenes memorialized or at least to be able to visit them. Examples include: Ford Theater where Lincoln was shot, the house across the street where Lincoln died (the blood stained pillow was displayed on the bed under a glass covering), the room where George Washington died at Mount Vernon (highlighted on the tour), the blue Cadillac in which Hank Williams died, The Alamo where Crockett and Travis were killed, Pearl Harbor, Gettysburg, Pricess Diana's crash site in Paris, Patsy Cline's crash site, Ground Zero in NYC, and so on. The reasons people may want to visit death scenes may vary. It could be curiosity or it could be to quietly reflect and offer prayers. Jim's fans would surely engage in quiet reflection and prayer.
But the bottom line is that when a celebrity dies (especially if they're young or if it's a tragedy), people want to visit the scene. And I think that if it is at all possible, they should be allowed to do so.
