    It is widely accepted that the Green Gobin/Norman Osborn is responsible for Gwen Stacy's death. Osborn claimed that Gwen was already dead when he threw her off the bridge.

    However, it is heavily implied that Spider-Man may have accidentally killed her when he caught her with his web shot. In the original artwork, when Gwen is caught, there is a SNAP sound effect next to her neck.

    One of the Marvel editors has said, "It saddens us to say that the whiplash effect she underwent when Spidey's webbing stopped her so suddenly was, in fact, what killed her."

    In Amazing Spider-man 121, Stacy was thrown off the tower of a bridge by the Green Goblin (Norman Osborne).  Spider-man tired to save her by catching her foot with some of her webbing.  In the panel there is a "snap" sound effect.  When Spider-man reached her she is dead.  Initially it was stated that she had died of shock from the fall.

    Because of the "snap" effect, it was later stated that the webbing had caused her neck to snap and that was the cause of her death.  

    Since then several other writers have attempted to alter her death, included what motivated Osborne to throw her off the bridge.

    But the standard understanding of what caused her death was her neck snapping when Spider-man tired to save her from falling to her death.
