British fashion designer Alexander McQueen was found dead at his London home this morning in what appears to have been a suicide. McQueen was just 40 years old. People Magazine says
According to the Scotland Yard report, “Police were called by London Ambulance Service at approximately 10:20 a.m. [Thursday] regarding a man found dead …The deceased is believed to be 40 years old and from London. The death is being treated as non-suspicious at this time.”
Britain’s Daily Mail reports that he hanged himself in his luxury apartment.
McQueen’s death comes days after the death of his mother, Joyce, and almost three years after the May 2007 suicide of his close friend Isabella Blow, who discovered the designer and helped launch his career.
Wow, so much death and tragedy. In times like these, I always turn to the Bible for strength and inner peace. Wait, I’m sorry — that should have read “boobies.” I always turn to boobies for strength and inner peace. Won’t you join me in ogling Irina Shayk’s rack as we mourn the death of the man responsible for this shoe? Amen.
