The Tragic Accident
I never met Gavin although spoke to him via email.
Simon I did meet being one of the last people to see him alive. Boy was he alive at the time.
This was his chance to steer the course of his favourite show.
He suddenly went missing along with Gavin, at the time it was speculated that the two were in a tubluent relationship as they had been fighting.
Gavin had expressed jealousy towards Simon online, believing him to be in a relationship with Spencer.
Items of clothing from them were discovered at Tynemouth Pier near to Simon's home town of Sunderland and letters now found to be written by Spencer were found to corrobate this.
The police pieced together a suicide murder. As trubute we went ahead and filmed the successful last episode of Season 7 written by Gavin, Simon and Spencer.
Both bodies were then discovered in 2018 the Thames under the wooden bridge at Bray Marina tied to breeze blocks by horse harnesses.
Spencer owned up immediately claiming self defence that he thought he was going sexually attacked by the two men.
Chief Justice Alex Redmond then passed a very reasonable sentence of 14 years that my defence team and contacts in the legal system managed to obtain.
Spencer is very grateful for the help I provided in mounting his defence and reducing his sentence.
