  1. As quite a few of us said at the time – an arrest does not necessarily mean a crime has been committed …

    Have there been charges – bail suggests yes, in which case we should not comment further on this case. Still no nature of the alleged offence given, I note.

    1. Bail does not suggest charges. Bail can be given without charges – for a charge to occur, there needs to be a crime.

      There can be bail subject to section 47(3) of the Police and Criminal Evidence Act 1984 which permits bail from police to allow further investigations to occur eg into a claim of alibi, forensics or to establish further facts.

      This is the form of bail that GMP had difficulties with from a recent court judgement saying it should be restricted to 4 days only. Many of these cases either end up in no further action being taken against those arrested or it being determined there was no crime (as well as no action).

      It was mentioned that the police suspect it to be natural causes which suggests that as the police continue to describe it as unexplained and not suspicious or a homicide that they would be surprised if this turns out to be anything other than natural causes.

      Will be interesting to see if we find out the outcome … but no evidence to say a crime.

    He died of natural causes, given he is in his late 40′s probably his heart of some form of brain aneurysm is the most likely to of caused his death..it happens all the time..If post mortem has stipulated natural causes then the police must release the two men from bail as no charges are answerable.

      @HelenWilson….
      …..”most likely to of caused his death” Presumably you meant “most likely to have caused his death” …yes?

  5. Rich, you sad, sick, troubled person. I would suggest you get help, but I suspect you’re beyond it. I hope there’s some way you can get better, even if I doubt it.

    Pink News …why have you not deleted tthe above comment. It is pure unadulterated hate and this commentator should have been banned long since. Why is he allowed to post such hatred on a Gay website?

  9. Rich is an animal. If this is all he can do, write puerile post of stunningly varied linguistic skills and multiple persona’s, then it just makes him look more the utter low-life fungus he is.

  10. you have my sympathy Rich – you are not a well balanced person are you?

  11. “I am not suggesting you anything because whatever I could suggest, you will never follow up”

    LOL! You think? You got that right, dog! I give scraps of food to animals like you on the street because I feel sorry for you.

  12. the real cnuts are the pink news moderators knowing that they will get more ad revenue from us reacting to trolls bstards

  13. @James!
