The deaths of some big names fueled the top Google searches of 2013.

Former South African leader Nelson Mandela, who died earlier this month, was the most searched topic on Google around the world this year, followed by Paul Walker, who passed away following a car crash in November.

Former ‘Glee’ star Cory Monteith, who died from a drug overdose over the summer, came in fourth place.

In the US, Walker took the top spot, ahead of the Boston Marathon Bombing. Mandela took third.
