No, of course he wasn't.

But the fact that his death is officially 'unexplained' makes it a suitably-eerie story due to the spook connection.

Read all about it.

He deserves a heritage Blue Plaque for the piddling incident, though.

Odd. Have edited and it works now. Apols, not sure what went wrong there.

I do not know what to make of his death, but I am sad that it was so long ago, that the funeral must surely have been concluded by now. I would have turned up for that. Seems that the fellow protested the right things broadly speaking, and eschewed the right things also. I would like to have known him, I think.

I would also like to know precisely what he died of, and in what circumstances.

There would have been an Inquest in any case of an unexplained death, and that would have been open to the public. Rootling around on the net, I can't find a mention of his Inquest in any local news-sources (others may succeed where I failed, as I didn't search very hard).

I think the word 'unexplained' is being used here by the Mail to imply 'mysterious', when it might not be that mysterious at all ('Unexplained' is not a verdict available to Coroners, so it must have been expressed rather differently).

Unexplained might just mean the journalist/researcher didn't know. I'm not sure how much credence to give them. Max Spiers is another example the Mail are peddling.

The story says that the Court was told the death was unexplained. Some quoted speech might have helped clarify this, but from the near-total lack of detail in the story, I'm guessing the DM are relying on the account of a non-journalist who attended.

You're right to take the DM with a pinch of salt - like most UK press, they are not above embellishment. Generally, the more independent corroboration there is in a DM story, the more reliable it is, and you soon learn to spot the fantastical ones.

Good post. Certainly in the Spiers case a lot of the actual information is coming from his mother - couldn't really get less unbiased.
