Lee Halpin Found Dead

Recommended Posts

Apologies for it being the Wail, but there's no article on the BBC News website yet, despite them just announcing it.

"A young filmmaker is believed to have frozen to death while making a documentary about sleeping rough on the streets as he tried to impress Channel 4 bosses."

Sad, but I wondered if one day, one of these stunts would go wrong.

Much like the Physics Phd who jumped to his own death, Lee Halpin made his point in the most tragically ironic way.

Rest in peace.

Doesn't really add up to me.

Healthy young man dies of hypothermia after a few nights in the cold.

If that's the case, then why are there not dead homeless bodies everywhere?

Healthy young (naive) man as opposed to fairly hardened, streetwise rough sleepers.

To quote from the article:-

Police have made two arrests in connection with the death of Lee Halpin.

A spokesperson for Northumbria Police said: 'Officers have arrested two men aged 26 and 30 on suspicion of being concerned in the supply of a controlled drug

Therefore it is somewhat misleading of the article to suggest he died from the cold

Because the bodies get removed? :unsure:
