OMG, remember Dr Hawley Crippen the American homeopathic physician who was convicted of poisoning his wife, Cora , in London over a hundred years ago? No? Well anywho, thanks to DNA testing, we now know he didn’t do it. Shame they hanged him for it. Awkward. Scientists have confirmed the headless and limbless body found at the couple’s home in the coal cellar wasn’t hers but a male’s . So were the hell did Cora get to? Who the hell belongs to the body? OK, to be fair Crippen may have bumped off the man but given that police only discovered a piece of skin, curlers with bleached hair and a piece of Men’s pjs it would have been hard to prove jack! Where is friggin Sherlock when you need him?

The fashion world is in mourning today following the news that British designer Alexander (Lee) McQueen has been found hanged in his London apartment only a few weeks before Paris Fashion Week. Police say there is no foul play suspected and are treating it as a suicide. Four times winner of “British Designer of the Year”, McQueen boasted Prince Charles, Kate Moss and Lady Gaga among his clients. Friends and fans began noticing strange behavior from the designer following the death of his mother last week. McQueen was only 40. RIP Alexander McQueen.
South Korea is yet again mourning one of it’s rising stars. Top model Daul Kim has been found dead in her Paris apartment from an apparent suicide. In the last few years South Korean has been rocked by a spate of suicide of well known singers and actors including Choi Jin-sil, Jung Da Bin, Yuni, Yeo Jae-gu and Ahn Jae-hwan. While it is too early to speculate the reasons, fingers are once again being pointed at the high pressure of fame and the loss of identity. Ms Kim’s latest blog entries indicated she was struggling to cope, writing in one post she was “mad, depressed and overworked”. It is believed she hanged herself. RIP Daul Kim.
