  6. +1, found with pills all around him. Could have been Panadol for all anyone knows yet.

    Very, very sad. :(

  7. God

    Panadol ca still kill. Bloody hell, what a shock. This is the first I've heard of it. IMHO he was a really good actor.

  8. Re: God

    I know that, but it doesn't mean he was a drug addict, crack head or something, that's what I'm saying.

  9. Condolences to his family but I do have to say that if it was a "recreational drug" overdose then I have no sympathy for him at all. Only for his young daughter.

    Ive thought he was on drugs for quite some time now, just from looking at earlier pics of him and seeing him recently in magazines etc etc.

  10. Might not be drugs. Maybe god is punishing him for that queer cowboy thing.

  11. I may sound like a heartless bastard, but another movie star ODs… Can’t really get choked up. I mean yeah condolences to those who really knew him. But when you have every thing going for you, and still can’t hold it together I have limited sympathy. We don’t hear about all the Single mothers fighting to get food on the table who break down and fall into drugs, or if we do it’s all about how she is the dregs of society. Someone like that deservers more sympathy than a rich play boy who is having a bad day.

  15. what a stupid thing to say.

  16. spun me out. It appears he was crook and was self medicating, so it may well have been accidental.

    I quite liked the guy for some reason.

  18. Ahh, gotta love speculation! What a waste of typing!

    It might have nothing to do with pills that may or may not have been beside his bed. They say he had pneumonia at the time, and I know first hand that it can be scary stuff. I had it when I was in a flat by myself in London about 5 years ago and it almost killed me!

    How about people not jump to conclusions, wait until some facts come out and then comment. If it's suicide or an OD, I'll be right at the top of the list of people condemning him, if it's not, then it's a sad loss, particularly for his family!

    Butz. :beer:
