Who is the modern-day tragic hero?

The Ancient Greeks had Oedipus, the Elizabethians had Hamlet, but who is today's tragic hero? Pick a real person who lived within the last 50 or so years and discuss why he or she is a modern day tragic hero. Feel free to explore the concepts of classical and modern tragedy, its romanticism, or anything else.
