The most famous carp on the planet mysteriously washed up dead in England this morning — and people close to the fish believe the death may have been … ((wait for it)) …. in cold blood!!!!

God Gives Hook to Gargantuan Celebrity Fish

The 64 pound carp — named Benson — became a local celebrity in the U.K. because of her size — and the fact that she was caught more than 60 times!

Here’s the twist — locals believe the fish may have been poisoned … sorta.

According to several reports out of the U.K., the man who owns the fishery believes some dumbass fishermen used uncooked nuts for bait — which, if ingested, could have killed the beloved fishy.

But since there will be no autopsy, the world will never know for sure. So long fishy….
