Gary Speed has passed away


Devastating news that Gary Speed has committed suicide.


From http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/8918628/Wales-boss-Gary-Speed-found-dead.html

The former Leeds, Everton, Newcastle and Bolton midfielder was found hanged at his home in Chester this morning.

After hearing of the news, Manchester United striker Michael Owen, who lives near the star, tweeted: "Just cannot believe the news regarding Gary Speed. We waved at each other a couple of days ago dropping our kids off at school. I'm numb."

"The force later confirmed that the dead man was Speed."

"There are no suspicious circumstances surrounding the death the family have requested that they are left in peace to grieve at this difficult time. A family tribute will be released at a later date but not today.

"Officers went to the scene where a 42-year-old man was found dead. The next of kin have been informed and have confirmed the identity of the man as Gary Speed.

A spokesman for Cheshire Police said: "At 7.08am on Sunday 27 November 2011, Cheshire police was informed of a sudden death at an address in Huntington, Chester.

The Football Association of Wales confirmed the news, saying that Speed's family had authorised the release of the information.

Police say there are no suspicious circumstances surrounding the 42-year-old's death.

Gary moved to Newcastle from Leeds for an at the time huge sum of 5.5 million and went on to play in two FA Cup finals for the Magpies.

RIP Gary you left an indelible mark on Newcastle United.
