Even in death, Sopranos fans are trying to prove that their favorite character is dead.

On Sunday the critically-acclaimed mob drama The Sopranos wrapped up their series with a controversial ending that has left fans either applauding or jeering, but it seems like the fans who loved the show the most are the ones who are looking for clues to prove that the main character, Tony Soprano, was whacked.

Many are claiming that there were alternate endings or false endings to throw off snitches who might run to the press. And even Journey is back in the news. So here's a rundown of Sopranos stories in the news.
